Light, fast and easy to sail
Designed to ensure the best racing performance and the highest cruising comfort, the MD75 successfully meets her owner's expectations, who relied on an experienced project manager to have a sailing yacht who is easy to handle, fast and comfortable to sail with his family.
"We developed the project in collaboration with the Project Manager and the Owner explains Mark Mills who both believe in a design in the name of simplicity and lightness. This vision was key to obtain the requested performance and led us to design an extremely elegant and clean deck plan, almost at water's edge, with all the lines led back under coachroof to the winches placed fore to the helmsman" says Mark Mills.
Made in full carbon, the MD75 will be equipped with lifting keel "she will then be able to maximize the performances granted by a square top mainsail" says Mills
Big volumes for the maximum comfort
The interiors of the new MD75 designed by Nauta, are inspired by a classic style with nautical elements in a modern view, that provides a clean and neat atmosphere
Bulkheads and furnitures are in "lambris" style. The lower part is in scratched Oak, that gives a warm and cosy feeling, while the upper part is realized using white panels that outline the uncluttered design.
The layout offers big rooms in all areas. A large and comfortable companionway, gives easy access the spacious saloon, with a dining area with a table for 6/8 people and a large sofa that can accommodate 4 people. The front section can accommodate 3 cabins each one with head. The owner's cabin is equipped with a large berth and is connected to the owner's head with a double sink and separate shower. The first guest cabin on port side has two single berths that can easily be joined in a double berth. The additional pullman berth gives one more place in the cabin. In the aft section, starboard of the engine room, there is a third guest cabin, with double berth and head. On port side, there is the open galley, through which the crew can reach their cabin, equipped with bunk berths.
