The Young 70 was designed for an Australian client who gave me a great brief and open mind policy to further develop our inside/outside concepts and really show how we can utilize the available spaces on what is a petite and sleek performance catamaran.
The overall beam is below 2: 1 and it is an example where extra length is an incredibly efficient way to increase the performance, aesthetics and handling of any vessel for maximum effect. The rig features our light air headsail system and slab reefing on a carbon park ave boom. The code zero offers a versitle reaching sail with great range to sail good angles with perfomance and ease
The vessels main cabin has glass walls that slide away into a cavity and open the saloon to the cockpit areas to fully utilize the maximum beam of the vessel (true inside/outside living……) Obviously this posed some interesting design challenges and we look forward to seeing them in action.
The vessel has a stunning galley and bar arrangement and going right forward a pilothouse with internal sail controls. The vessel uses push button sail controls and has a sophisticated load management system including a sports mode or safety mode (first seen on the TAG 60).
It is contracted to be built by JTM, China and we look forward to construction commencement very soon.
