A next-generation project from the ThirtyC design studio, ‘Lotus’ bridges the gap between the experience of sailing and the adventure of the motor yacht lifestyle. Designed for the family who seeks life without compromise, the combination of dual-mast DynaRig sailing yacht and rugged Support Vessel offers unbridled freedom for both the journey and the destination.
Lotus: The 88m Sailing Yacht
The lightweight, high-tech 88-metre sailing yacht is the primary vessel in this private armada, offering owners speed, precision sailing and the ability to cruise the world in comfort or compete in global superyacht regattas. This versatility is due to the world’s first twin-mast DynaRig structure, meaning Lotus has the potential to become the most technologically advanced and fastest sailing yacht of her kind on the water.
Drawn with signature ThirtyC style, Lotus is a masterpiece collaboration with iconic yacht builders Royal Huisman and DynaRig specialists Dykstra Naval Architects ; offering complete customisation, open spaces, reduced complexity in terms of both rigging and crew as well as an engineering package that fits both luxury and agility on the water.
Lotus’ Shadow: The 70m Companion Vessel
Travelling ahead to prepare for the sailing yacht’s arrival at any given destination, the 70-metre support vessel is designed to be packed to the brim with toys, tenders, cars, helicopters and other such items that enhance the experience of travelling the globe.
The motor yacht side of the duo, the aggressively styled, futuristic and clean design of the support vessel works with the aesthetic of the sailing yacht to act as a complete package. On the water, the functionality of the support vessel also complements the lifestyle of the sailing yacht, bringing with it entourages, pilots, doctors, and any guides or team members to help make the journey more than unique.
