In open water she is 23 metres across, but in harbor configuration the outer hull beams fold in to a slender 11 metres.
The design also includes a garage for your sport car!
“The Ultraluxum CXL has a height of 60 metres at the top of the mast and has an overall weight of 150 tons. This is an outstanding yacht in every respect and one of the most refined and beautifully appointed sailing vessels ever constructed.
Ultraluxum CXL is the most extreme fusion of architecture, design, comfort, performance, economy and technology ever created in a luxury sailing yacht. It challenges the forces of nature and the rules of engineering to race across the ocean without using a drop of oil and can cruise the most exclusive harbors powered only by renewable energy.
Completely automated to ensure ease of operation and provide the ultimate levels of comfort, Ultraluxum CXL harnesses the luxury and convenience of a motor yacht with the excitement and speed of multihulls.”

- 1 spa (optional, with 3 guest cabins)
