North Wind is recognised as one of Spain’s most well known yacht brand names and we were pleased when they asked us to design an all new 100ft / 30.5m addition to their cruising range.
The end result is a contemporary looking, deck saloon design of attractive proportions with a large ‘Mediterranean-style’ cockpit.
Borrowing from the success of ‘Akalam’ we have once again maximised the external space by working from already generous beam proportions, we have positioned the cockpit coamings out as far as reasonably possible. Then by placing two discreet steering positions adjoining the rear of the deck saloon this has enabled us to use the space normally reserved for a central wheel.
In addition to the 5m long owner’s suite, one other unusual characteristic for a yacht of this size is inclusion of three double guest cabins. The owner’s suite benefits from twin bathrooms and private access to the transom platform, while the guest cabins are pretty much all of the same physical size.
Straight edges styling optimised towards cost-efficient aluminium construction, the design offers low heeling angles and a compliant ride.
An all carbon, self-tacking cutter rig and variable draft centreboard with lead bulb accentuate an ‘easy-to-handle’ mentality. With the hull effectively ‘wrapping’ itself over the top of the bulwarks to create a smooth integration where hull meets deck.
By no means a dark chasm like some, our deck saloon benefits from plenty of natural light provided via large windows and an internal steering position with small navigation table completes the picture inside. And considering there are no less than seven large windows along the length of the design, light will play a significant role within the inside of the hull as well.
