Aglaia’s design brief asked for an all-weather performance sailer with sleek and clean lines. In addition, requirements were stated for sailing, steering and manoeuvrability. With the motto to develop a 60m+ yacht that sails like a dinghy, the design team set specific targets like hoisting the main sail in less than two minutes and tacking the boat within 30 seconds. The 83m carbon mast is the largest ever produced by Southern Spars and had to be transported to The Netherlands in two pieces. The three-dimensionally curved glass in the deckhouse has a spectacular light effect and gives undistorted panoramic views.
My Great Uncle was on one of the ships in Pearl Harbor. He jumped into the water and received 3rd degree burns over 50% of his body due to the ignited gasoline on the surface water. He only said that it was “too horrific to speak about it” and took the events of that day to his grave. Remembering those lost and injured, and the family that took care of them. #pearlharbor
