Sail-World.com : 140ft schooner Senso One for Superyacht Cup

140ft schooner Senso One for Superyacht Cup

The 140' (42m) schooner Senso One (formerly Mari Cha IV) has confirmed they will be taking part in The Superyacht Cup Ulysse Nardin in Palma next month. Senso One will be the fastest boat ever to take part in a Superyacht Cup event.

Senso One has two 45 metre masts but weighs only 50 tonnes due to a lightweight, sleek carbon-fibre hull which contains a stripped-out and minimalist interior. This is a complete contrast to some of the luxurious staterooms onboard several of the other participating yachts.

'We are delighted to have Senso One participate at The Superyacht Cup' commented Event Director Patrick Whetter, 'the response to our new IRC class has been very positive this year and we expect the fleet to grow significantly for the future.'

Formerly called Mari Cha IV, Senso One still holds the Transatlantic record for a monohull, crossing from New York to Lizard point in just over 6 days. Capable of speeds of over 40 knots, the boat was designed by Greg Elliot, Clay Oliver, Philippe Briand and built especially for ocean record breaking. They will race in the new IRC class for The Superyacht Cup against such yachts as the classic J class Ranger, and the Wally Open Season.

Ocean Yacht Systems have also renewed their sponsorhip of The Superyacht Cup Ulysse Nardin. OYS are world leaders in the supply of rigging solutions, offering a wide range of custom hydraulic cylinders and panel systems as well as bow and stern thrusters. Several of the yachts competing in The Superyacht Cup are OYS clients, including the largest boat taking part, Hyperion (Frers designed 46m ketch) as well as Gliss (Briand 32m) and Ranger (Stephens 41.4m). OYS will have a display tent in the regatta village promoting their latest products and services for superyachts.

The Superyacht Cup Ulysse Nardin will take place in Dique del Oeste in Palma, Mallorca from 11 to 14 June 2008
