At nearly 140 feet (42.6 meters), Sarissa is the largest carbon fiber superyacht sloop built by Vitters Shipyard and in Holland overall to date. To put her size into further perspective, her mast towers 167 feet (51 meters) above the deck, and her beam is 28 feet (8.6 meters).

Of course, size alone doesn’t make Sarissa worth noticing. She’s a performance-oriented sailing yacht, intended for competing in international regattas and cruising the world with her owner’s family.

This video showcases her sailing abilities, plus gives you a good look at her family-friendly layout.
