Overview: modern motor Superyacht that utilises the efficiencies of sail power. Atlas has been designed to be used with a combination of motor and / or sails, exploiting the obvious fuel saving benefits. The contemporary 110m 5 deck super yacht form is complimented by the sail arrangement, demonstrating the potential in merging Superyacht volume with the graceful elegance of a sailing yacht.

When using both motor and sails the vessel can cruise easily at 14 knots with a possible fuel saving of between 40% and 60%, coupled with an equivalent increase in range.

Heeling is limited to maintain the comfort expectations and characteristics of a motor powered Superyacht. Stabilisation under power and at anchor is provided by retractable active stabilisers, however, underway the natural damping of the sails offers energy free stabilisation.

Power is provided by a diesel electric power plant and is designed to be totally flexible with the sail power. The diesel electric combination can alone power the vessel to a maximum speed of 18 knots with a range without sail assist of 8000 Nautical miles.

Overview:  To crown with a real flagship their range of high performance sailing thoroughbred, Nauta Design conceived a large dimension sloop, 155’ (47.25m) long, through the consolidated co-operation with the well renowned naval architects Reichel-Pugh.
She is the largest sailing yacht ever designed by Nauta (while the 180 mt. “AZZAM” is their largest motor yacht project, and also the largest private Motor yacht up to date).

The preliminary studies, GAP, are in an advanced stage, being inspired by the request of a client for a super performing 150’.
Water lines, appendages and sail plan were developed, as usual in the Reichel-Pugh / Nauta co-operation, by the California based Naval Architect office, while the general design, the outline, the deck and the interior design were developed by the Milan based design firm.

The hull is a last generation fast sailer with a very rearward max Beam. The water plane B max is conventional, not to increase wetted surface. But close-hauling, the boat is taking advantage of all the water line length with a reduced total wet surface. The summed area of the two rudder blades is similar to a single rudder blade one, but the efficiency is much higher since when the boat is leaning, the downwind rudder blade works vertically in a perfect laminar flow, as if the boat were horizontal on her lines.

The final result is a very aggressive profile with an extraordinary favourable LOA/Displacement ratio, thanks to high tech pre-preg carbon construction, outputting a light displacement of only 120T in dry conditions. To further improve the performances they adopted the lifting keel solution that allows to improve righting moment for super upwind and reaching performances. The very high aspect ratio of the fin keel will considerably improve its lift and eventually will crucially participate to the high performance of the boat. The VPP is foreseeing a 16.5 knot speed on displacement and up to 26/28 knots on planning attitude.

The style of the boat is defined by a very sleek outline, where the deckhouse profile is kept very low and is fairly hidden by the gunwale, which is 1’2” (35cm) high over the deck, offering a safe foothold when walking in leaning attitude. The gunwale is also 1’ (30cm) thick forming at the same time a practical and comfortable seat while sailing and at anchor, using the handrail as a backrest. Beside the elongated deckhouse windows, lightening the salon, the gunwale profile is cut and lowered for 13’1” (4m) to allow looking outside, and at the same time performing as large scupper for more safety. The deckhouse seems “floating” on the deck thanks to a darker inner spacer splitting it from the deck.

On deck the key point of the boat is the shape and the design of the stern. A wide low platform on the water level becomes a sea lounge for the owner whose master is just linked through an angled glassed companionway with sliding door.

The social life centre of the boat is the outside dining / resting area, easily convertible to the different functions of dining table, coffee tables, sunbathing area, all in the scale of a 155’ flagship.

Overview: Najade is a large, modern and fast vision of the actual decks house performance cruisers.

Important is clean, well-organized deck, all captive winches are covered under the main deck with an easy access for maintenance, anker and mooring gear is also hidden under the fore deck. A large tender is sheltered in the aft garage at the transom.

The decks house is not recessed as on many boats at that size. Here the main deck has one level. The amount of space differs from other yachts in her range that shows the main salon with its indoor/outdoor concept, providing as much as possible light into the salon by large, full height windows and an amazing sky light roof.
As a standard, the main helm station is on the sun deck, but if the captain needs to steer from inside, a fully equipped wheel house is in front of the dining area. Further the sun deck incorporates a 4 person jacuzzi and sun beds for lounging while enjoying the sail.

The inner general arrangement of the lower deck offers besides a spacious crew area four generous guest cabins with en-suite bathrooms, a luxurious owner’s suite with a dressing room as well as his and her bathroom. Furthermore a comfortable TV lounge and a gymnasium take care of guest entertainment on this deck. The interior of the main deck provides an airy salon area and a forward dining next to buffet and bar.
The unusual full height windows to both sides of salon and dining allow the surrounding elements of sea, wind and sunlight to flood the space and to complete the interior philosophy with its natural beauty.
