Dubois Yachts has unveiled details of Super Stern, a 35m high-speed composite sloop. The new project has been designed for an existing Dubois owner, who is no stranger to the regatta circuit.
Super Stern is intended to be a fast competitor on the race course whilst not compromising on superyacht high end features and comfort for family-orientated, blue-water cruising.
The high-tech hull is designed for carbon fibre construction with a structural Nomex core and vacuum infused epoxy.
She’ll feature a twin-rudder arrangement, high-aspect ratio fin and bulb keel – lifting to allow unrestricted cruising – and above deck a regatta-winning sail wardrobe with a flattop mainsail, blade, code and bowsprit-set gennaker.
Amongst her unique features is a convertible stern platform that caters for pre and post-race down-time. It opens through 180 degrees to expose a sheltered ‘beach club’ arrangement with a swimming/boarding platform. This area is directly accessible from the master cabin and in that sense provides private access to the water and a secondary aft-deck space.
In addition, stowage for a 3.3m tender is also provided beneath this folding platform, with the tender crane concealed within the boom.
The interior layout provides for a full-beam owner cabin with en-suite, two twin guest cabins – both en-suite. Forward there is accommodation for two crew in twin bunks starboard and a captain’s double to port.
The build yard and interior design team for this project is still to be decided. Dubois has said in a statement they believe she will be on the water by summer 2017.
Dubois specialises in superyacht design, naval architecture, brokerage, charter and yacht management.
