Opale Design Studio reveals new 62m sailing superyacht concept Hispaniola

Parisian design studio, Opale Design Studio has revealed its new 62m sailing superyacht concept Hispaniola.

The concept came to be as an entry into French publication Chasse-Maree’s design competition and contains two top secret innovations, according to the studio.

Hispaniola was designed as a sailing charter yacht that offers an authentic and unique sailing experience for her eight guests and crew of four. She is reported to have three noteworthy innovative features – two of which must remain secret until the yacht has found a buyer.

Naval architect Paul-Henri Decamp commented on the design and the special features of Hispaniola; “This yacht will be chartered, and to offer her passengers unique and unforgettable experiences, this ship has three big innovations: the first is an automated rig able to be used manually like old and true sailors or completely remotely controlled by the helmsman. The two others concern the living experience aboard which will be only communicated to the buyer of this concept.”

Hispaniola’s namesake, the Caribbean island split between the two sovereign nations of Haiti and the Dominican Republic, is known in the luxury yachting world for its beautiful white beaches and five mountain ranges that stretch across the entire island.
