This spectacular 85 meter Fast Cruising Ketch, is the world’s largest high-performance ketch and marks Vitters Shipyard’s and Oceanco’s first cooperative effort.

Throughout all stages of this custom project, the close collaboration meant that both Vitters and Oceanco  brought in their highest level of experience, knowledge and capabilities in their individual areas of expertise to make this unique project a true combined success.

As experienced sailors, the owners’ brief called for a comfortable performing cruising yacht, suitable for long range world-wide sailing with long-time independence from shore. Three key elements defined the design and build process of the project: Safety, Comfort and Performance. Finding the right balance between these three different, and sometimes contradicting, requirements was the most challenging part of the project for all the members of the team.
