    Sailing Yacht Aglaia is a 66 metre stunning vessel, launched by Vitters Shipyard in March 2011. The hull 3063 superyacht Aglaia features naval architecture by Dubois Naval Architects, whereas her spacious interior was projected by Redman Whiteley Dixon design studio. 

    The impressive superyacht Aglaia boasts sleek lines with an extended aft and a deep navy hull with teak decks. Her draft is 4.9 m (16ft) keel up / 9.0 m (30ft) keel down, featuring a beam of 10,3 m (190ft). One of Aglaia’s interesting features is her massive mast. Being a sloop, she requires one very tall and technologically advanced mast, which stands over 80 metres above her deck and even further above the water line. This huge, modern luxury yacht designed by Dubois Naval Architects, also has one of the largest composite rudders created. 

    Luxury Sloop Aglaia has racing yacht performance, thanks to her powerful rig, long waterline length, light weight and lifting keel, which when fully extended provides enviable pointing and speed. 

    Vitters’ Aglaia sloop is powered by two C-18 engines of 532kW at 2100 rpm and her total tank capacity is 50,000 litres. She is able to reach a maximum speed of 13 knots.
