50m ketch Meraki

Recently the 50m modern classic ketch "Meraki" , built at Vitters Shipyard, was launched.

The design work of Meraki started with the development and optimisation of hull, deck, and interior layout with a focus on performance, reliability, and comfort as the owners plan to sail in remote areas and race. Extensive computational fluid dynamic modeling and windtunnel testing resulted in a graceful, fast and stable hull shape. The yacht features sleek lines with reduced freeboard and low deckhouses which allow the helmsman unrivalled visibility over the deck. Meraki’s hull is one of the first of such a large yacht with a slight “tumble home”. The tumble home ensures extra righting moment at the optimum angle of heel and contributes to the overall beauty of the boat. The keel was designed with a large centre board to improve her upwind performance.

The deck layout of Meraki features a large centre cockpit with two steering stations and forward of the main deckhouse another cockpit area for quests or crew. This forward cockpit is protected by a sprayhood and provides access to the crew area that is located forward in the yacht. There is an aft owner’s deckhouse and private cockpit connected to the owner’s cabin. This rare three-cockpit layout adds a layer of versatility and design flow. 

The interior of Meraki is unique and completely tailored to the owner’s wishes in a contemporary classic styling of the highest quality of any sailing vessel. Meraki represents a new, higher standard for modern classics.  She should be equally adept at cruising with family and friends or competing in sailing regattas  around the world.  

All naval architecture, interior layout and exterior styling are done by our design office, the interior is done by Rhoades Young and MCM Newport was responsible for the owner’s representation and supervision of the build.
