While we may never experience the feeling of sailing a super maxi sailboat, this video by Rick Tomlinson brings us pretty darn close. Aglaia is a spectacular 66m sloop-rigged aluminum yacht with low superstructure and a clean deck. This cruiser has serious sex appeal.
The large sloop rig is all carbon with EC6 rigging and gives a sail area to displacement ratio equivalent to a racing yacht. This Dubois design breaks new grounds in several areas - not just the length of this sloop but in the design and all the engineering, innovation, technique and craftsmanship coming together.
