Our 60′ Foiler Flying Nikka made her debut at the Rolex Maxi Yacht Trophy in Porto Cervo, the most celebrated event in the most stunning location in world yachting. Competing crews were eager to see how the new concept performed, and were not disappointed as the offshore-capable foiler raced through the fleet.
Arkas MAT Sailing Team have launched the first MAT1220 ‘Blue Moon’, taking our dramatically styled new 40’ design and setting a new standard for artistic livery! Arkas are one of the strongest racing teams in Turkey, and have long had a strong relationship with builder MAT Yachts.
Blue Moon is the first of four MAT1220’s currently on order, in both the fin keel and bulb keel versions. Designed to be a versatile IRC and ORC performer both inshore and offshore, the next three boats will go to Japan, Australia, and Sweden, emphasising the worldwide success MAT has earned over 20 years of performance yacht construction.
Mills Design are 2022 ORC European Champions in two of the three Classes in Hanko, Norway. In Class A Michael Berghorn’s 45’ Halbtrocken Sailing Team finished with a first to top the podium above two TP 52s. In Class B our Landmark 43 Intermezzo Racing Team of Jens Kuphal also won on the final day, just in front of her sistership White Shadow Sailing Team, which confirmed their 1, 2 on the podium they had held for most of the week, with only one point between them! These results continue our strong form in ORC: Halbtrocken was the 2021 ORC World Champion, while our Landmark 43 design has claimed the ORC World Championship in 2018 and 2016.
