  • About the Project

    Marie, a 180ft classic ketch, was delivered in 2010 and is one of the most recently launched yachts by Vitters Shipyard.

    She is proof that it is possible to combine the lines of a classic ketch and still get the modern performance of a cruiser/racer. The use of the most modern technology and the latest knowledge in rigging resulted in an exceptional result during Marie’s maiden voyage, sailing a knot above the true wind speed.

    The Southern Spars Carbon Fibre masts can carry an amazing 3300 square metres of sail, with infurling booms for both the main and mizzen sails.

    Designer: Hoek Design Naval Architects
