Following the release of SY 300, a 90-metre (300-feet) concept this spring, Philippe Briand has announced a second concept from this family of self-sufficient performance yachts: Perfect 60.
The London-based naval architect and yacht designer Philippe Briand revealed the concept of Perfect 60. It will be smaller than its bigger sister, SY 300, but equally powerful, featuring a traditional, carbon-fibre mast and rig, and the same inverted bow.
Briand has designed the yachts in response to the growing trend for sailing megayachts that are effectively motoryachts with sails, requiring engines to assist in propelling them through the water. Perfect 60 will be able to take part in regattas such as the St Barths Bucket, with great performances expected.
Briand’s self-sufficient sailing yachts will also appeal to owners who prefer to minimise their impact on the environment while cruising the oceans. The efficient hullform characteristics of Briand’s designs mean that more power could be harnessed through underwater turbines to charge the batteries on board.
