Seattle-based superyacht design studio JQB Design has unveiled two new sustainable superyacht designs: the 74m high performance sloop Ecoyacht Concept and the 88m high performance schooner Ecoyacht Concept.
The 74m high performance sloop Ecoyacht Concept is equipped with a collapsible upper sail. With a height of 61.3 meters, the sloop is able to overcome the American Bridge in Panama, which underlines the yacht's maneuverability despite its length. In addition, the yacht will be equipped with a rotating carbon fiber mast.
The second concept presented by JQB Design is the 88m high performance schooner Ecoyacht. The schooner has a displacement of 1,650 GT and is equipped with two carbon swivel sails with folding tops. The yacht's design has been optimized for upwind sailing. The hull configuration incorporates the aesthetic elements of a classic sailing yacht, while utilizing state-of-the-art hydrodynamic technology.
Yacht designer Jonathan Quinn Barnett of JQB Design has been designing superyachts for over 35 years.
The design studio notes, “Our Seattle studio has always focused on 'buildable design' and that they are 'convinced that sailing rigs will provide significant performance and usability benefits.'
