Designers Tracey-Jayne Canavaggio and Pieter van Geest from Amsterdam-based design studio Van Geest Design are the brains behind this superyacht design named 60m Dhow. Traditional trading dhow vessels were the inspiration behind the 60-metre sailing concept that offers a simple lifestyle on board with its superyacht quality build offering a seductive vision on the water.
A romantic image of the Middle East is presented by the design element of the Dhow mainly through the use of lateen sails. Developed with Formula Marine, the sail plan is one of the main features of the exterior. With this vessel, tacking is not intended to be straightforward with an automated and easy to use sail system using automatically raised mizzen sails that are dropped before the main boon can cross over.
A dining/lounge area can be made out of a modified recess on the foredeck that is used to house a seven-meter tender. The wooden sailing yacht can accommodate 12 crew members and 10 guests with the space at the front of the engine room being used to house guests and crew and the owner and their family being housed in dedicated living quarters situated in the aft lower deck.
The space towards the aft features a balcony, an office and the owner’s lounge with the main deck featuring a dining table capable of sitting 10 and the main salon. Uninterrupted views of the surroundings are offered to the owner when the bulwarks in this part of the vessel are folded down. To maximize comfort and enjoyment, a Jacuzzi with sun pads on either side is located between the aft cockpit and the owner’s office.
