Hetairos, the 66.70m sailing yacht won the Judges’ Special Award in the 40m+ size range, for her notable contribution to the technical advancement of sailing superyachts, at last week’s World Superyacht Awards in Turkey.
Hetairos’ design by Dykstra Naval Architects is considered to have set a number of new benchmarks never seen before in superyacht design and construction.
Her unique design features include a custom retractable and rotatable hydraulic drive system which produces 2x 460hp, as supplied by Ocean Yacht Systems.
Her interior design was overseen by Rhoades Young Ltd, while the whole building project was managed by Jens Cornelsen GmbH.
