Our Mega Maxi project has caused an international sensation. The innovative hull design and the extreme speed predictions convinced an Asian investor.
The is extremely demanding. "I only want the best of the best. My yacht is foilen just like the model boat." The man, who declined to be named task is clear. "In the latest 2 years I want to win the Sydney Hobert Race." So not only the best materials are installed at 100 feet in length, but the most qualified professionals who are on the market, working on the project.
Bucking the trend, the first yacht will not be built in China, but in Hamburg - Schenefeld. In Osterbooksweg 31 a hall will be converted into a huge tempering oven.
"By producing in Hamburg we have the whole process under control, and have access to our established network." Hans Genthe is delighted with the job "The temperature in our hall can go up to 150 degrees. In order to process the prepreg." About special vacuum isolation panels, otherwise rather used in aerospace, the hall can be divided and thermally optimized.
The molds are milled to time in a special operation in Rostock. The foils can be optimized in a project together with the University of Kiel. The sails are derived from the megayacht line of Elfström-Sails. The Yacht will become painted with ALEXSEAL varnish - also in Schenefeld. As a consultant, the super yacht designer Frank Neubelt and FARR Yacht Design stand aside.
"First, our client has of course sailed the Mega Maxi as a model. Fortunately in the last few days a lot of wind. But our Yacht Performance Center concept, the Intregration all major trades concentrated in one location, was the point that brought ultimately the job. " Genthe has invested in the past few months a lot of time planning. "And our sailmaker Albrecht von Bremen has presented a very convincing concept for Elvstøm sail - I have rarely seen such enthusiastic future owner."
Construction is in October 2015. Until then, a lot of time is invested in hydrodynamic optimization and structural calculations.

Brian Thompson & Lloyd Thornburg join the Farr280 fleet and confirm entry in the HP30 Class Race Circuit.
30 March 2016. Farr Yacht Sales is pleased to announce that Lloyd Thornburg and Brian Thompson will shortly be taking delivery of a Farr280 for the summer season.
Lloyd and Brian's Phaedo3 MOD 70 team will be moving to Cowes for the whole of the summer and the Farr280 will be arriving in early May and will be worked up in time for the inaugural HP30 Class event at the Vice Admiral’s Cup in Cowes, on the 20th May. The boat will also compete in a number of other HP30 and Farr280 Class events.
“This is a significant departure from our normal ‘weapon of choice’!” comments Brian, who currently runs the super-fast trimaran Phaedo 3. “We have been looking for a high performance race boat that we can sail, in addition to the trimaran, ideally with the same small relatively small crew. Looking around the market place, there was plenty of choice, but the Farr’s One Design credentials and the boats high quality and technical features made it stand-out.”
This year, the UK based Farr280’s will be racing in the HP30 Class fleet, as well as amongst themselves at Cowes Week, where a number of European Farr280’s will also be competing. Expectations are for at least six boats on the start line.
“We are delighted that Team Phaedo are joining the fleet.” Comments Joe Hall, head of Farr Yacht Sales Europe. “People are beginning to realise that the 280 offers great performance in a neat package and owners are now a lot happier to take the plunge, knowing that in addition to the One Design racing, they can also get out on the race track and compete with similar race boats in the HP30 Class.
“Having Lloyd and Brian on one of our 280’s is a great testament to the boat and to the class. People with discriminating taste can see the effort we’ve put into the boat, and see the true international basis for the class. I’m really confident that Team Phaedo will campaign the boat at a very high level, which will be great for the class’ momentum in 2016.” Said Patrick Shaughnessy, President of Farr Yacht Design.
Farr Yacht Sales has recently appointed a new agent in Germany and expects to do the same in Sweden very soon. With recent boat sales in the USA and Japan, numbers are increasing, in key territories, building an international fleet for the future.

New!!! The 3x1 pure racing. TP52/HPR-Style. High performance model yacht, which fits the 3x1 class rules.
The 3x1 HPR fits the 3x1 one design class rules - the yacht as another deck layout, but the same geometrie: The lines plan and the mast/sail arrangement is the same as with the 3x1-Racer. So it´s no problem to join the races of the 3x1 class.
With the HPR deck you get a 100% racer.
The HPR rule is based on the ORC rules and enables real racing yachts close racing together. Due to the fair and fast racing more than 200 boats are built inside the rule - in less than two years.
Every 3x1 has the genes of an ultramodern racing yacht - but the 3x1 HPR has the cool design also.

Nice advertising. Alex Thomson is flying with a Kite and with the halyard of his Open 60 "Hugo Boss" nearly double as high as his mast, at the zenith he is releasing the halyard and flying free back to earth. Also the landing had to be perfect. After 13 attempts the video was made finally. A lot of work and a lot of wet best suits :-)

(January 26, 2016) – The former CEO of World Sailing says he was fired for pushing to get rid of polluted Guanabara Bay as the sailing venue for this year’s Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
Peter Sowrey tried to change the venue, or at least have a “B plan” but says “I was told to gag myself on the subject.” Andy Hunt took over just two weeks ago as the new CEO, and sailing is still scheduled to begin in August in the sewage-filled bay.
In interviews with The Associated Press, Sowrey and Hunt said the bay — overlooked by the famous Christ the Redeemer monument and Sugarloaf Mountain behind it — may give sailing the kind of television coverage it seldom enjoys.
It could also bring unwanted attention if sailors fall ill, or if floating rubbish — plastic bags to door frames to animal carcasses — fouls rudders and costs someone an Olympic gold medal.
Sowrey proposed moving the event to Buzios, a coastal resort about 160 kilometers (100 miles) from Rio that has been host to several large sailing events. Of course, it’s too late now for that change.
Sowrey, who left in December after only five months on the job, came to the governing body from the consulting company Accenture. He acknowledged he had little experience dealing with the politics that drive international sports federations. But he brought business acumen.
“The board felt I was way too aggressive,” Sowrey said. “They basically voted me out. I didn’t resign. The board finally told me to leave.”
Sowrey said looking at Guanabara Bay on “fact-based, data-driven model we would never consider sailing in that quality of water.”
Independent testing of Guanabara Bay conducted by the AP over the last year shows disease-causing viruses linked to human sewage at levels thousands of times above what would be considered alarming in the U.S. or Europe. The tests include the venue for sailing, but also Rio’s Olympic venues for rowing, canoeing, open-water swimming and triathlon.
About 1,600 athletes will compete in these venues during the Olympics, which open Aug. 5, and hundreds more during the subsequent Paralympics.
Experts say athletes will be competing in the viral equivalent of raw sewage with exposure to dangerous health risks almost certain. Many sailors have described the conditions as “sailing in a toilet” or an “open sewer.”
Viruses like those in Guanabara Bay can cause stomach and respiratory ailments that could knock an athlete out of the Olympics.
When he first learned of the AP analysis, Sowrey supported the same kind of independent viral testing. But he was nudged to support the position adopted by the International Olympic Committee, the World Health Organization and local organizers; that the bacteria-only testing was sufficient.
“I was just stepping on toes,” Sowrey said.
Like many of the 35 federations that participate in the Summer and Winter Olympics, World Sailing gets much of income from the IOC. Sowrey and Hunt both said more than half of World Sailing’s annual revenue was from that source.
World Sailing’s executive board, which Sowrey said dismissed him, has two non-voting members — King Harald V of Norway and Constantine, the former king of Greece — and seven voting members. Some are former Olympians or former heads of national sailing federations.
Sowrey proposed Buzios as a replacement for Guanabara and showed the AP a 20-page dossier detailing the plans.
“I did a plan with Buzios and tried to push it through,” said Sowrey, who also lives part-time in the town. “I couldn’t win that battle, not internally at ISAF (World Sailing) and I couldn’t win it with the organizers. I was perplexed why there was no back-up sailing plan. It’s only sailing after all, it’s not curing cancer.”
Andy-HuntBuzios is no longer an option and Hunt knows the looming risks.
“There’ll be huge interest in how the (Olympic) regatta goes, and the problems that take place,” Hunt told the AP.
Hunt has been weaned on sports politics. He was the CEO of the British Olympic Association, and the BOA delegation head for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games, and the 2012 London Olympics.
“It (Guanabara) is not ideal,” Hunt said. “For one moment I’m not saying it’s ideal, but I do think there’s a huge amount of effort and attention going into this to ensure the safety of the athletes.”
His main worry is the floating trash, which will be policed during the games by a dozen rubbish collection boats, barriers used to block fetid streams that feed the bay, and helicopters to spot flows of detritus.
A sewer pipe to keep raw sewage from reaching the Marina da Gloria, the launching point during the Olympics, is supposed to be ready by late March but is at least three months behind schedule.
Rio treats only about half of its raw sewage, so bacteria and viruses in the bay are long-term problems without short-term fixes.
“I think it’s hard to say there’s a lot more that could be done,” Hunt said. “If there were limitless resources, maybe there’s more that might be done, but it has to be realistic.”
Hunt noted the bay was the venue for the 2007 Pan American Games, and Rio has held two Olympic sailing test events in the last two years. Hunt described these as “successful,” although many sailors complained about the stench around the marina, and teams took unusual precautions to avoid unnecessary contact with the water.
“I’m completely aware of the possibility and the challenge of how this (Olympic sailing) might get portrayed,” Hunt said. “The ultimate test — if we have delivered a great regatta — will be the response from the sailors.”
MORE: Malcolm Page, Chief Marketing Officer for World Sailing, submits the following statement:
“We were surprised by the comments attributed to the former ISAF Chief Executive Officer Peter Sowrey in this recent interview with AP.
“Of their own accord, the Hotel Association, the Commercial and Business Association of Buzios and the Buzios Convention & Visitors Bureau wrote to the ISAF President on 27 July 2015 offering the services of their city as an alternative Olympic sailing venue.
“Under the guidance of Chief Executive Officer at the time, Peter Sowrey, the President wrote back on 3 August 2015 with the following statement, ‘As you know the venue for the Sailing event of the 2016 Olympic Games was evaluated and approved some years ago. There are no plans currently to consider other venues.’
“World Sailing continues to work in close partnership with the Rio 2016 Organising Committee and the International Olympic Committee to ensure that the venue is suitable to provide an outstanding Olympic Sailing Competition.”
