Shaun Carkeek reveals 91m sailing yacht concept C300

South African yacht designer Shaun Carkeek has given details about his latest concept, the 91m sailing yacht C300.

The former South African yachtsman of the year explains that talks are underway to build what would be the largest composite sailing yacht in the world.

Carkeek said, “The genesis of the idea for the C300 started with an owner who was considering a much larger, state-of-the-art sailing yacht. Now, I’m talking to one of the best builders in the world about how to build it and create a team around the project.”

Despite the substantial size, performance was a key aspect when designing the C300, with the aim of delivering the handling performance of a 30m sailing yacht. As a result, the two-mast C300 would be fitted with electric retracting pods.

On-board accommodation would sleep up to eight guests, while the crew quarters would house a staff of 15. The propulsion system has yet to be confirmed, however, the C300 is expected to cruise at 20 knots under power and be capable of sailing speeds in excess of 35 knots.
