Following discussions at the 2011 Monaco Yacht Show, the fabled team at Dubois Designs has entered a contract with an existing client for the construction of a 100m sloop.
“We are pleased to announce the design contract for a 100m sloop,” says Ed Dubois.
“This will demand a 30 month design programme with construction expected to commence mid 2013 with completion 2016. Further information will be available late 2012.”
She is expected to exist as one the most spectacular private yachts. Her main mast will tower 125 meters above the water. The yacht is designed as an explorer vessel. Much of her volume is dedicated to storage (stowage) space for tenders and equipment. This sailboat holds a maximum draft of 12.8m. She has accommodations for 20 crew in single cabins. There is a unique hard top over the flybridge.
No shipyard has yet to be chosen for the construction, but Josep Juanpere Miret in onboard as the interior designer.
For a luxurious winter vacation on the water, charter a Dubois-designed yacht such as sail yacht KOKOMO or sail yacht TWIZZLE. Contact the 1-800 Yacht Charters desk at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/ for further details.
We first profiled Dubois in May when a handful of the designers yachts swept the World Superyacht Awards. Some of the world’s largest yachts, specifically luxury sailing charter vessels like TWIZZLE, KOKOMO, and RED DRAGON. These yachts trace their pedigree to the studio of Dubois Naval Architects Ltd.
“Most people who organize charitable donations have a good reason to do so,” explains Ed Dubois. “In our case, our second daughter, Minna, was diagnosed with the rare form of childhood cancer – neuroblastoma – in July 2005. Her chances of survival, statistically, were about 40%.”
All funds raised go directly to Sparks. They will fund specific projects in the area of childhood cancer research. This was agreed upon by Ed and Honor Dubois.
