Design 809, is a new 50m concept that has been created to re-define what it means to be a high performance superyacht. .
Farr Yacht Design and Design Unlimited have partnered together to create this high performance racer cruiser that will establish a new class in competitive sailing superyachts.
Breaking records, dominating the Superyacht Racing Circuit, and comfortable Mediterranean and Caribbean cruising round out the uncompromising design brief. Cutting days from trans-ocean records and finishing hours ahead of the closet competition in superyacht day races are all easily within the capabilities of this incredible yacht.
This 50m concept is pure power with a long, light hull of only 155 tons displacement, and a rig that stands 68m above the waterline. 2500 square meters of sail, twin daggerboards and rudders and a telescoping/canting keel allow this yacht to easily achieve speeds into the mid-20’s in moderate winds and well above 30 knots in strong winds. Advanced and proven sail handling systems provide the necessary flexibility and safety needed to confidently achieve those high speeds.
