The combined talents of two highly regarded yacht design offices have come together to create the ‘Mantis 80’.
Dixon Yacht Design, are responsible for the naval architecture and the external styling, and have joined with Ken Freivokh Design who have designed the interior.
The original concept was to design a flybridge performance super sailing yacht with the flybridge deck integrated into the hull line.
Constructed of aluminium, the long waterline and slim, easily driven hull, will be propelled by a powerful ketch rig.
A lifting keel will optimise stability and weight while in no way intruding into the vessels accommodation.
The interior design complements that of the exterior, with considerable emphasis being placed on continuity of line and the integration of spaces. The custom built interior is lightweight, so as to have negligible affect on the performance of this no compromise blue water yacht.
