The hull mold for MM33 is being assembled now, so construction on the yacht will follow in a few weeks. Like other recent Vitters builds, and high-performance sailing superyachts in general, she’ll be a composite and carbon fiber project. MM33’s vertical bow allows for her waterline length to be close to her LOA, 98’4” (30 meters). McKeon says she’ll have a “generously proportioned” sail plan to encourage her performance edge. Downwind, for example, it will be 12,701 square feet (1,180 square meters). He adds that she’ll be fitted with a lifting keel. With the keel up, MM33 will see a draft of 12’5” (3.8 meters). Keel down, draft will be 16’7” (5.1 meters).
To encourage relaxation, MM33 will make the most of her 24’6” (7.5-meter) beam. The large swath of tinted glass you see in the illustration will extend over the saloon. It’s easy to imagine the resulting sensation of openness. Further accentuating that feeling, large portions of that glass roof will open. (Fear not about the sun’s rays heating up the interior when the glass roof is closed. The MM33 wisely will have a heat-reflective film on an inner layer of the glass.) The aft-deck doors will be able to remain open as well.
The modern profile of the MM33 is being complemented by what’s said to be an equally modern interior by Design Unlimited. No particulars are being publicized in terms of the decor just yet. However, guest staterooms will be forward, and crew will be aft, with aft-deck access. It’s also worth noting that Design Unlimited has collaborated with previous clients on yachts intended to both race and cruise. The interior of MM33 is therefore going to be as lightweight as possible. Sound and vibration control is being prioritized as well.
