Latest sailing superyacht news from Palmawatch…Peter Franklin
Full details of the new 100ft/30metre ‘Egoist’ project from the renowned designer Philippe Briand have been announced.
A new 100ft/30m carbon sloop concept, ‘Egoist’, has been developed by the Philippe Briand Studio, specifically to indulge the owner who wants to simplify their experience on board by having the exclusive use of their yacht.
A focus on the owner:
At a time when many yachts are designed to equally satisfy a variety of different demands, from the charter guest to the potential buyer, the artistic direction can become compromised to the extent that the originality of the design is diluted. The outcome: the essence of why the yacht is being built is in danger of getting lost.
Egoist is the antidote to this; she has been designed purely to satisfy the needs and enjoyment of the owner. S/Y Egoist embodies a fresh take on a classic Eastern Seaboard sailing yacht, but can also be used to race with an expert, though reduced, crew. The yacht has a very roomy interior salon with a superb master cabin and comfortable accommodation for two crew members. She is the ideal day sailor or a cruising yacht for an owner who wants to enjoy the sailing experience of a superyacht without the need for numerous crew.
The designer of Egoist, Philippe Briand, has accumulated 31 international awards so far, but remains driven by his passion to develop new ideas!

Hull length 30m – Hull beam 6m – Waterline length 25.80m – Draft 4m – Light displacement 45t – Full load displacement 55t – Upwind Sail area 430mq – Downwind Sail area 950mq.
