220ft Vertigo was launched in February 2011. Designed by Philippe Briand and built by Alloy Yachts in New Zealand. She has modern hull lines and is the first yacht of this size to have an almost vertical bow, allowing for greater water displacement and a considerable increase in speed. She is both fast and sensitive to sail.
Vertigo won her share of accolades when she appeared on the scene, winning Sailing Yacht of the Year in the 2012 World Superyacht Awards. She was also named sailing yacht of the year at ISS awards and was named Best in Show at the Monaco Yacht Show.
As the yacht is very big, ketch rig was the only suitable option. Mainsail and mizzen sail include roaches which have never before been seen or used on yachts of this size. More surface area of the sails is exposed up high where the wind velocity is greater than it is at the proximity of the water.
Renowned interior designer Christian Liaigre who has created an extremely comfortable, light and spacious atmosphere designed these accommodations. On the main deck is the saloon and cockpit, housed by transparent sides to allow maximum natural light. The lower deck houses four cabins and the vast owner’s suite which leads directly to the lazarette and swim platform.
Vertigo’s interior layout sleeps up to 12 guests in 5 staterooms, including a master suite, 4 double cabins, and 1 convertible cabin4 pullman beds. She is also capable of carrying up to 11 crew onboard to ensure a relaxed luxury yacht experience.
Timeless styling, beautiful furnishings and sumptuous seating feature throughout her living areas to create an elegant and comfortable atmosphere. Vertigo’s impressive leisure and entertainment facilities make her the ideal charter yacht for socializing and entertaining with family and friends.
