175' Erica XII

Launched in 2007 by Vitters Shipyard, the 175-foot sloop Erica XII is a further development of the successful collaboration on the 180-foot ketch Adele. The hull design shows generous overhangs reminiscent of the J class yachts, with a modern round-bilged canoe body and deep fin keel. The keel has an exceptionally wide bulb of approximately three metres in width. Although her 4.6-metre draught is slightly shallower than Adele's, Erica XII has a higher righting moment thanks to a high ballast ratio, carbon sloop rig and carbon rigging. Her carbon spars and furling booms are by Southern Spars from New Zealand. The overall sail plan was optimised using wind tunnel tests and the mast height was set to allow the yacht to pass under the Bridge of the Americas in the Panama canal. Erica XII's hull is built in high tensile aluminium 5383. We extensively analysed its structure for strength and longitudinal stiffness using finite element structural modelling techniques. Our unique privacy concept is taken to new heights on Erica XII. There are two steering stations at deck level, the aft deckhouse being reserved exclusively for the owners, with a huge separate lounge cockpit and dining area in-between. A dedicated crew cockpit with dodger is located just forward of the mast - another unique feature for a boat of this size. The owners' stateroom is completely separated from the navigation area and social cockpit amidships. The four guest cabins and their ensuite facilities in the aft section are also apart. The main deckhouse includes a dining space, bar and navigation area. The lower, open-plan saloon takes up the full beam and is adjacent to the gym and captain's office, which can be converted into a spare cabin. Four crew cabins, a galley, crew mess and a large laundry room are integrated in the forward section. Redman Whitely Dixon was responsible for the interior design of Erica XII and MCM was the owner's representative.
