110' performance sloop
This performance sloop has been designed by Philippe Briand for an avid yachtsman. The yacht is an ocean going performance cruiser solidly engineered to be built in aluminium.
This project has been developed for a young family looking to cruise around the world. Performance is always key: first of all the yacht needs to be able to outrun the weather, but more importantly the Owner needs to enjoy the responsiveness of the yacht.
Briand designed a roomy hull that can easily accommodate a large owner cabin, three guest cabins and a spare room usable as an office or rec room. The engine room is full beam and is located at midship to reduce the pitching of the yacht. The living area is raised to provide the best outer panoramic view. The Owner will find great pleasure looking out towards the horizon from the comfort of the main salon.
The crew quarters layout comfortably and accommodates six crewmembers. The layout is fully LY3 compliant.
The cockpit is exceptionally large, safe and well protected by the roof of the superstructure. For those passengers who like to be in the sun there are comfortable sun pads.
The manoeuvring and handling is concentrated around a steering station, for minimal interference with the guests and optimal efficiency in operating the yacht.
Philippe Briand Ltd designed a generous sail plan that guarantees this yacht will perform in all conditions including light air. Philippe believes the most fun in sailing is when the boat beats smoothly in a light breeze.
Last but not least we believe the first function of a yacht is that her Owner is proud of her: we think we have achieved this goal.
