Shuairan - Uniting the super-world of motor and sailing yachts

by Lee Mylchreest on 18 May 2014
Shuairan aft view SW
It's said to 'unite the world of motor yachts and sailing yachts' but she looks more like a sailing yacht from a science fiction movie. Is this how the sailing boat of the future will look - before the oil runs out?

Shuairan is a concept for a 35m sailing yacht, which is the latest project of Italian yacht designer Pannone Architetti.

According to Superyacht Times her 'sleek exterior lines with high-bulwark and large windows create an aerodynamic look, whilst offering her guests a light and airy atmosphere inside.'



Proud of the sleek shape of the vessel, Pannone Architetti have also designed the night lighting to emphasise the sculptural form of the exterior.

At the stern is a configuration of sofas as that of motor yachts, but with two consoles for instruments next to the two rudders. Forward to the rudders, Shuairan extends her versatility with the external dinette and relaxing sunning area, which are both removable in order to leave more freedom to maneuver in a regatta.



Guests are accommodated in three en-suite luxury cabins as well as an elegant master cabin, located forward with full beam bathroom.

The deckhouse, as mentioned, has sculptural forms, but aerodynamic. According to the designers, the inspiration comes from observation of the fish and their gills. At the bow of the deckhouse Pannone Architetti created a sunning area with sofa and sunbed which can be dismantled for serious sailing.



As for the interior, there is a dinette under the deckhouse. At the stern, there is the area with two crew cabins for the crew and one for the captain, kitchen and technical area.

On the main Island Tortola. ‘Road Town’, the capital of British Virgin Islands is on the other side of the Island. To get from Cane Garden to Road Town (by taxi) is over hills. Big hills. With much vegetation.

This all stems from the learnings in the widely read, ‘Debbie says there are 7 Ps and 1 C with insurance’. This all stems from the learnings in the widely read, ‘Debbie says there are 7 Ps and 1 C with insurance’. As time unfolds some more, we learn that indeed there are a lot of reasons you need to apply patience with both your dealings with your insurance company, and also all the many trades that are working feverishly to get all the jobs done.

Fourteenth blog from on board Perie Banou II - British Virgin Isles
32 days back I departed the British Island of Saint Helena. Clearing port, customs, immigration simple. Jon has arrived in the BVI ahead of his estimated arrival. He had somehow managed to completely disconnect from the on-board communication system that they set up for him, and as a result we didn't have communication with him while he was at sea. of course, that is nothing strange for Jon, and perhaps he wanted it to be more like his circumnavigations of old? Hmmmm.... Accidentally on purpose?

Debbie says there are 7Ps and 1C with Insurance
Debbie says there are 7Ps and 1C with Insurance If you have been on the planet or around boats long enough, you’ll know all about the 7Ps. The one ‘C’ mentioned here refers to consequence, and in the legalese that surrounds insurance, it gets applied distinctly to consequential damage. We’ll come back to all of that in a while, but for now, our mission is to look at the consequences of actions prior to TC Debbie making landfall.
