These designs are in the spirit of the W.37′, W.46′ and W.76′ yacht models already sailing, of which multiple copies have been built, but in particular the sailing yacht W.76′, designed by Joel White.

The W.100′ yacht model has been designed to compete in classic yacht regattas such as the Eggemoggin Reach, Les Voiles de Saint Barth, Antigua Classic, the Bucket Series and for occasional cruising. She is the minimum size yacht to qualify for these events. The interior and deck layouts have been optimized for crew efficiency, comfort and accommodations.

The boats will be constructed of wood/epoxy at Front Street Shipyard of Belfast, Maine and in conjunction with both Rockport Marine and Brooklin Boat Yard.

Technical Specifications of the new W.100′ superyacht concept:

LOA 100’-1”
LWL 80’-0”
Beam 22’-6”
Draft 13’-0”
Displ. 169,950 lbs
Ballast 55,000 lbs.
Hull speed 12.01 knots
Sail Area 4,950 sq ft.
