B60 Sloop

The subject of this collaborative commission is a new 60-foot day sailing boat designed by Luca Brenta and built in Kiel.

The project’s functional goal is to create the ultimate day racing yacht, built for recreational rather than competitive purposes, but with the highest levels of manoeuvrability. The aesthetic expression of these functional aspirations is embodied in the sleekest of carbon-fibre hulls surmounted by the geometric purity of a triangular white sail.

Luca Brenta’s expertise lies in pushing forms and materials and the rigours of an approach which consistently prioritises vision over established ways of doing things. The collaboration harnesses this passion for pursuing an idea to its ultimate conclusion in the service of a particular set of interior spatial ideals.
