UNFURLED (2015)

The Frers designed, 150ft sloop rigged performance cruiser is the first yacht built by Vitters Shipyard to a design by Germán Frèrs.
The cooperation with the Argentinian designer has been a resounding success. Both the design studio and the yard have a long track record of high performance cruisers and their joint experience created a great combination.

The yacht embodies paramount high performance characteristics while offering the enjoyment of comfortable living on-board and to compete in the world’s most competitive Superyacht Regatta’s.
 
 
 
“OUR GOAL WAS THE DISTILLATION OF OUR PAST DESIGN IDEAS, APPLIED TO THE INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR OF THE NEW UNFURLED.
ANOTHER FUNDAMENTAL GOAL WAS TO CREATE A YACHT PURE IN DESIGN, NOT COMPROMISING SPACE; RATHER, USING IT GENEROUSLY, NOT COMPROMISING PERFORMANCE, A YACHT BEAUTIFUL IN LINE – EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR.”

“UNFURLED HAS EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS IN TERMS OF QUALITY OF BUILD, PERFORMANCE AND OVERALL VISUAL BEAUTY.
IN GETTING THERE, WE CAN LOOK BACK AT THESE PAST 3 YEARS, FROM THE FIRST DRAWING TO LAUNCH AND SEE HOW MUCH WE HAVE ENJOYED THE PROCESS. THE COLLABORATION, THE TRADING AND TESTING OF IDEAS, THE SATISFACTION AND CHALLENGES HAVE RESULTED IN THE NEW UNFURLED.
WE ARE PROUD AND PROFOUNDLY GRATEFUL TO ALL WHO WERE INVOLVED.”

AQuiJo (2016)

This spectacular 85 meter Fast Cruising Ketch, is the world’s largest high-performance ketch and marks Vitters Shipyard’s and Oceanco’s first cooperative effort.

Throughout all stages of this custom project, the close collaboration meant that both Vitters and Oceanco  brought in their highest level of experience, knowledge and capabilities in their individual areas of expertise to make this unique project a true combined success.

As experienced sailors, the owners’ brief called for a comfortable performing cruising yacht, suitable for long range world-wide sailing with long-time independence from shore. Three key elements defined the design and build process of the project: Safety, Comfort and Performance. Finding the right balance between these three different, and sometimes contradicting, requirements was the most challenging part of the project for all the members of the team.
 
“WHAT AN AMAZING DAY OF SAILING TODAY! AQUIJO REACHED 20.4 KNOTS. WE WILL RAISE A GLASS TO THE NAVAL ARCHITECT WHO MADE THIS MASTERPIECE POSSIBLE! YOU HAVE TO BE ON HER WHEN SHE IS UNDER FULL SAIL WITH WINDS OF 35 KNOTS AND ABOVE. TODAY, WE HAD THE STAYSAIL OUT, ONE REEF IN THE MAIN, AND TWO REEFS IN THE MIZZEN. WE ARE ALL EXHILARATED AND HAPPY.”
