MOXIE YACHTS – THE M 61 – AN INNOVATIVE LUXURY CATAMARAN – A VPLP DESIGN BUILT BY THE JAZ SHIPYARD IN CAPE TOWN

MOXIE was named after the 51 footer Trimaran skippered by 65 years old Phil Weld in the 1980 OSTAR race. Phil Weld made it first to Newport. The M 61, designed by VPLP, and built in carbon is certainly from the same blood. Some of you will recognize the lines of the famous “CILIAM”, the Lago 92 also by VPLP with the same interior designer Anne Monique Bonadei. With this World class team, including Cape Town base Jaz Marine shipyard, Moxie Yachts has defined a new concept of high speed cruising in total confort. For performance, the MOXIE 61 will be fully buiLt in carbon from bottom of the dagger boards to top of the mast. VPLP has imported a sail and deck plan from their experience in designing self handling offshore racers. The mast located aft for better weight distribution will be rotating with a Kevlar rig. The hulls are powerful and feature retractable dagger boards for upwind performance and easier access to nice moorings.

For the confort, a roof as large as the beam garantees a lot of space and light inside. The interior lines are clear and clean. The M 61 offers a large owner suite, two nice ensuite cabines for the guests, and sleeping quarters for the crew and kids. A very large and confortable cockpit is protected from the sun by a ridig bimini top.

The MOXIE 61 is scheduled to be launched end of 2009. Need any body for the sea trials ?
