MONACO YACHT SHOW CONTRACTS

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.  

 

BUILDER COMMENTS

“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.

 

INTERIOR DESIGNER

No shipyard has yet to be chosen for the construction, but Josep Juanpere Miret in onboard as the interior designer.

Ed Dubois was recently in the news for establishing a cancer fund for children.  Yachts designed by Dubois and his team have swept numerous superyacht awards in the past year.

Yacht Designer Launches Child Cancer Fund

ED DUBOIS

People associate the name, Ed Dubois with luxury mega yacht charter vessels. This month, Dubois, one of the world’s leading yacht designers, launched his greatest project to date. He created a cancer fund for children.
 

DCCF

The Dubois Child Cancer Fund (DCCF) is created in conjunction with the charity, Sparks.  European sports superstars created Sparks to fund medical research into childhood diseases.

DUBOIS YACHTS

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 TWIZZLEKOKOMO, and  RED DRAGON.  These yachts trace their pedigree to the studio of Dubois Naval Architects Ltd.

DCCF GOAL

The aim of the DCCF is to increase the survival rate for infants and young children with neuroblastoma.  Researchers are optimistic this goal can be reached. They cite as proof the survival rate for childhood leukemia. It has increased over the last twenty years from 10% to 90%.  Specifically due to increased funding.  For Ed and his wife, Honor, the mission to find a cure for childhood cancer hits home. 
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%.
 

MINNA DUBOIS, SURVIVOR

Six years after her initial diagnosis, doctors report Minna is doing well, as her chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments have been effective.

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.
