Friday, May 8, 2015 saw the premier German shipyard, Nobiskrug, launch the massive and breath-taking 147-metre mega yacht WHITE PEARL (hull 787) at the shipyard’s facilities in Kiel. The largest vessel ever built by the prestigious German shipyard, the all-new superyacht WHITE PEARL will now undergo the final fitting-out and first sea trials. There is a new fleet of next generation massive sailing yachts coming very soon, starting with the 147m mega sailing yacht White Pearl currently under construction at Nobiskrug in Germany – part of Abu Dhabi Mar Group. OceAnco‘s mega sailing yacht SOLAR is the third yacht in line to join the list of largest yachts in the world with 106 metres in length. Another important yacht to be launched this year is the Vitters-built 85-metre hull 3069 yacht, also known as Project 85. Launched in 2014 with a very recent delivery, PERSEUS^3 yacht by Perini Navi represents the first sloop in Perini Navi’s new generation of 60-metre series, and the second yacht built from these series. Numerous other sailing yachts have been launched in the past few months with others still under construction.
With each new build, Owners are commissioning sailing yachts with better and improved performance, ease of handling, safety and reliability. The fleet of sailing super yachts is represented by a wide range of vessels, be it for luxury yacht charter or for the owner’s private use.

Scheduled for delivery next year, the impressive WHITE PEARL yacht currently represents the world’s largest sailing yacht. Her construction started in March 2012, and she is reported to feature a beam of 24,38m (79’10”) and a draft of 8m (26’2”). One is the 141m (462’6’’) mega yacht DREAM SYMPHONY, taking shape at Dream Ship Victory in Turkey. Naval architects, yacht designers and builders are continuously challenged by the new generation of Owners as well as the latest technologies on the market.
She is being constructed by Dream Ship Victory in Turkey and represents the largest sailing yacht ever built in collaboration with Dykstra & Partners for naval architecture and Ken Freivokh Design for exterior and interior styling. She was entirely designed by the acclaimed design studio Nuvolari Lenard with naval architecture by Dykstra Naval Architects and is set for launch in 2015.
Boasting exterior design by Bill Tripp with interior design by Doelker + Voges, she is expected to have luxurious accommodation for twelve guests and a crew of eighteen.
She is being built by the Italian shipyard with design by their in-house team in partnership with bespoke Philippe Briand. With the largest 2014 sailing yacht launch being the beautiful traditional Phinisi LAMIMA measuring 65 metres. She was designed by the yard’s in-house naval architects in collaboration with Ron Holland, with optimised performance representing a decisive step forward.
Some of her most notable features, in addition to her excellent performance, include the aft deck spa pool, two large tenders stowed below the foredeck and a swing lift centreboard, which allows her to slide into shallow lagoons and waterways by only drawing 4 metres.
No doubt, there are some stunning and impressive vessels to join the worldwide fleet of luxury sailing yachts. Due to the increasing interest for sailing regattas around the world, the sailing performance plays a larger role in the construction of new generation sailing super yachts. There are yachts from high-performance racers right through to heavier displacement yachts for cruising. The winners of these prominent awards will be unveiled during a gala evening at Amsterdam’s majestic National Maritime Museum on Saturday, May 3, 2014.
Dream Ship Victory’s philosophy is to build sailing yachts with cutting edge technology on board with the largest hulls in superyacht construction, working with world-leading designers and naval architects to create perfection itself and to stay loyal to its traditions. Vorontsov is currently the world biggest sailing superyacht ever built with a hull made of laminated wood.
Founded in 2011, the yard builds luxury, handcrafted superyachts, combining modern production technology using advanced materials with traditional craftsmanship working in natural stone, wood and hides.

The yard also offers a full range of refit and repair facilities for yachts up to 3000 tonnes. Still family owned, today this East Boothbay, Maine company has evolved into a leader in advanced composite construction while maintaining exceptional skills for world class traditional and modern interiors.

Scheduled for launch in 2014, superyacht Dream Symphony by Dream Ship Victory will represent the world’s largest sailing yacht, once completed.
I estimated total PR value of my HPV 24 hour record attempt adventure to be in excess of 8 to 10 million viewers. In an age where our natural environment and ecology play an important role, sailing yachts are gaining increase in popularity. Her construction has started in March 2012 and she is scheduled for delivery in 2015, however recently published photos of White Pearl under construction suggest that there is quite a bit work to be done before she can be launched onto the water. Her designers are also responsible for the spectacular charter yacht MALTESE FALCON design, which suggest that DREAM SYMPHONY is another master-piece to look forward to.
The interior is said to feature modern elements with light-wood and stainless steel details balanced with colourful upholstery.
She is a stunning Indonesian wooden sailing ketch with accommodation to fourteen guests in seven luxurious yet traditionally-styled cabins.
Owners are participating in the regattas not only for sheer enjoyment and fun, but also with a scope of winning.
Today, yacht charterers will find the same level of luxury and unprecedented service aboard sailing yachts as they would by chartering a motor yacht. We are the largest professional broker specialising in luxury yacht charters and we are the most dedicated. A wealth of world renowned shipyards in the region and a rich maritime history makes Amsterdam a truly fitting location to celebrate excellence in superyacht build as well as design.

Esenyacht is a subsidiary of the Tursen Group, whose interests also include renewable energy and mining. Samuel Gassan in 1945, the company still concentrates primarily on diamond cutting, wholesaling and retailing in set diamonds, loose polished diamonds, gold jewellery and watches. Below is a video of Dream Symphony, released by Ken Freivokh, responsible for her exterior and interior styling, while the naval architecture is by Dykstra & Partners.
Vorontsov is completed to the highest Dutch standards of superyacht construction and will be fully RINA classified. She boasts 6 beautifully appointed suites and carries an impeccable crew of 12 professionals.
That includes Popular Science Magazine with a total circulation of about 7 million, local news coverage which included both TV, newspapers and magazines as well as international press and TV plus dozens of web sites. Although the world’s largest mega yachts are mainly represented by motor yachts, sailing yachts reach just as impressive overall length, the latest in advanced technology, architecture, design as well as styling – not to mention performance!
She will also provide her guests with a massive 30-metres guest area situated on the main deck, connected to the spacious cockpit by 4-metre wide sliding doors. LAMIMA combines traditional Indonesian boat-building techniques with modern design, technology and supreme safety. Note that this list will change very soon, once the previously mentioned yachts have been launched.
As a result yacht builders and designers are aiming at creating yachts with improved sailing performance. Although motor yachts offer larger outdoor and indoor areas due to their multi-deck characteristics, sailing yachts provide a more intimate feel and somewhat more hands-on experience. Vorontsov superyacht is a breathtaking three-masted classic schooner, featuring a concept design by Valeriy G.
The long term count could reach as high as 15 to 20 million with mention of the world record in books now being published, more web sites linking to the AOG site, continued growth of the AOG web site and longer term 'feature story' type of public relations efforts.The human powered Atlantic crossing is a much larger project than the HPV record, and as such, should generate much more world-wide, national and local attention.
Ocean swells and waves from the side are absorbed by the pivoting outriggers keeping the cabin and prop level.
She will feature an 18-metre fly-bridge, offering additional outdoor and entertainment area for guests.
Faster yachts are more efficient and are capable of sailing lower down the wind range and perform better off the wind, thus saving on fuel consumption. The crew aboard these vessels is extremely well trained, selected upon previous experience and job references, making sure guests aboard are well taken care of and enjoy their yachting holiday not only in style, comfort and luxury, but also in safety. Stepanenko, naval architecture by Gerard Dykstra & Partners and interior design by Ken Freivokh. If ocean conditions are severe, and the vessel capsizes, the outriggers simply rotate around the cabin and swap positions with the lower set of hulls.
Most of the large next generation sailing yachts are built in steel and aluminium, with composite rigging, stiff light and durable moulded sails, freestanding masts, lifting keels, retractable drives, off wind furling Code sails, hydraulic and electric captive winches and other technologies developed in the recent years. At the moment, the yard is also working on the largest wooden sailboat in the world – the 141m megayacht Dream Symphony, scheduled for launch in 2014. If your company can offer assistance in any way (like donating equipment or supplies), here is what I can offer you in return:1. The constant rocking action can turn an electric generator to store power for radios, water maker, and other misc electronics. A series of high res photographs and video clips of your product being used in the 'extreme' ocean environment while on the expedition which the sponsor could use as content for various advertising and promotional campaigns.2.
A testimonial from me regarding the applicability of your product and it's use during the expedition.3. I managed to get quite a bit of press coverage for the 24 hour HPV record including the cover of Popular Science magazine, and I plan to aggressively seek as much publicity as possible for the Atlantic Expedition. A serious technical problem to this approach is that once the hull has been rotated back onto the water, it would need to be rotated further to lift the heavy cabin up and then locked into place to match the original geometry.
I'm not sure how the operator would lever his power to lift the entire boat up 2 or 3 feet.

Narrower catamaran hulls may be more efficient than a single mono-hull featured on traditional ocean rowing vessels due to far less displacement.
According to a study by The International HISWA Symposium on Yacht Design and Yacht Construction, they found that the most efficient hull design for a long distance water bikes is a catamaran or a slender mono-hull. The traditional ocean rowing boat is a mono-hull, but most probably not a "slender mono-hull".

Because the cabin won't capsize, this design does not require a heavy, draggy keel or center board thereby improving efficiency. If the constant movement of the pivots combined with the harsh sea water environment were to corrode or damage the pivots, then the main cabin could flip over with a capsize, and power generation would stop. This could be resolved by ensuring that there is a over-ride mechanism to turn the cabin manually in the case of a pivot malfunction. There should also be some form of power generation back-up like a solar panel or wind generator. The force of the hulls hitting the surface of the water upon a capsize could damage the hulls, struts or cabin - especially in the case of the quad hull version.
The aerodynamic drag of this design would be greater than a traditional mono-hull because there is more surface area exposed to the air. However, at typical speeds of a few knots, aerodynamic drag is a very small factor unless powering into a stiff head-wind.
Because the cabin and one or two catamaran hulls are up in the air, the wind could catch it and blow it over causing unwanted hull rotations.
The weight of this design would probably be greater than a traditional mono-hull and could be slower and less efficient because of this.
It is possible that with the drag of the prop and strut, an ocean swell would rotate the main cabin section almost as much as the catamaran hulls are being rotated thereby negating much of the wave isolating pivot effect. The side profile of the prop strut should be as hydrodynamic as possible to allow it to slip sideways through the water.
The boats I build are just over 1 foot wide at the waterline but they are only intended to displace 200lb or so. The boat I am thinking of would have an offset ellipse X-section at the cockpit. A rounded bottom coming up to a beam of 2 feet at the waterline, a little bit wider above the waterline to give shoulder room and then narrow above the shoulders to take in the head. Again strap in so the boat can do a complete roll without you smashing the canopy.
Some modern ones with flat decks are stable upside down and this is a safety issue.
The small boats in the Sydney to Hobart ocean race might roll through 360 degrees up to 4 times in a race. The bigger boats often destroy masts if they suffer a complete 360 but they usually get upright and stay afloat.
The hull needs to be about 500mm wide at the crank so you have clearance for the pedals and heels. Having pedalled 6,500 miles on the ocean I look at the idea of remaining so beautifully stable with great envy!! I'm no design expert, so Alan Boswell or another marine architect's opinion is more valuable than mine, but my two pence-worth of advice is to keep it simple. Build a nice sleek, strong monohull, enclose yourself inside a cockpit you can seal but also give you plenty ventilation when you want it.
Pedal power beats rowing power every time - I'm sure you'll be able to beat any rowing record over the same route. Build a stainless steel version of the MicroMarine units we used, so you can easily replace and repair. Monohulls are horribly tippy and uncomfortable, but a self-righting monohull desgn is safest bet for you. Have a very supportive custom-built pedal seat with racing driver seat belt, and a place to wedge your neck and limbs in tightly to sleep.
When I look at your design I see a lot of windage to slow you down and make it hard to steer, I see complicated engineering, three right-angled changes in direction of power to get to the prop, and a lot of elements that could snap or seize up and be extremely difficult to repair at sea.
I would say the hull has been optimised for the speed the rower can sustain in good conditions- say 5mph. The average speed will depend a lot on the chosen route to take advantage of wind and currents.
However the proposed design should not be bothered by sea conditions as much as ladybird so you can sustain a higher average.
It could be made to be self-bailing for the most part through the open well for the drive leg. It is also a good idea to have a closed well low down in the hull that collects condensation and can be pumped out.
You get a lot of condensation at night after a warm day so things get wet and uncomfortable if they do not drain. I think the idea of an outrigger that deploys from one side would make life a lot better.
I expect you could operate with the cockpit open for maybe 80% of the time depending on the chosen route. You would need to have good weather forecasting to leave the cockpit open while sleeping. The ends of concept 1 get narrow very quickly and you do not want to widen above the waterline in the ends to allow for sleeping.
