In this Tried & Tested, yacht bedding specialist Sea Design conducts a review into the best duvets, quilts and pillows on the market. It tests a series of leading products to work out the best yacht bedding money can buy.
In the words of Ron Holland Design:"This world-famous project imposed more technical challenges and resulted in more innovation than, arguably, any other custom yacht of recent times. A 75m composite hull, 90m sloop rig (the world's largest), 150-ton lifting keel, luxury accommodation and outstanding performance under sail are just a few of the ingredients that add up to a very special yacht indeed”. M5 has some impressive rigging specifications. Mast length is 90 meters, the V1 has a break load of 700 tons, and The Reacher forestay is 88 meters.
M5 chose Carbo-Link as a partner to supply the rigging as they have the design and manufacturing expertise and many years producing very large composite cables for yachts and industrial applications.
Carbo-Link produced the state of the art carbon rigging package that incorporates technology developed for America’s Cup yachts and industrial products including massive crane cables.
The new Carbon rigging resulted in a staggering 14 tons weight saving over the Nitronic steel rigging that was replaced.
Some of the features incorporated that are new to Super Yacht rigging include:
