66 Metre Superyacht AGLAIA by Vitters & Dubois
Sailing yacht AGLAIA at 66 metres (216.5 ft) was launched earlier in March by Dutch Shipyard Vitters a well known high quality super sailing yacht Shipyard. The Superyacht AGLAIA sloop (hull number 3063) is a huge modern luxury yacht as designed by Dubois Naval Architects with interior design by Redman Whitely Dixon. S/Y AGLAIA was actually launched to water on Thursday 3rd March at the Vitters shipyard in Zwartsluis, The Netherlands after being barged to Harlingen where the yacht's sloop mast was also stepped.
One interesting point about this sailing yacht is her massive mast. As she is a sloop she needs one very tall and technologically advanced mast which stands over 80 meters above her deck and even further above the water line. Superyacht AGLAIA also features one of the largest composite rudders created to date.
The AGLAIA yacht is the largest Vitters boat that has launched so far. She has racing yacht performance due to her powerful rig, long waterline length, light weight and lifting keel, which when full extended provides enviable upwind pointing and speed. a futuristic Vitters superyacht she makes a very impressive sight.
