MP 100 is a new sailing yacht 100' long. It is a particular
project because it has all the signatures of a racer: a broad
stern, maximum beam near the transom, a chine barely over
the waterlines that starts aft and dies away at the sides of the
bow, and, naturally enough, a trapezoidal mainsail. At the same
time, she is safety and comfortable cruising yacht right for
navigations across the oceans. She is a Yacht with elegance
classic shape like the ancient sailing yachts.
The challenge of the project was to build gorgeous, solid,
high-performance beauty for around 30 per cent less than the
price of the competitors.
The notable features of MP 100 are:
- diesel/electric hybrid power, with lithium battery pack;
part of the electric motor’s power is also supplied by
photovoltaic panels on the deckhouse roof;
- lifting keel;
- the transom is particular, opening up to create a great beach
area with direct access to the owner’s cabin’s relaxation area
on one side and the galley on the other. Staying aft, there is
also tender storage;
- large saloon with an inside helm station and chart area;
- the natural light of the interiors of this yacht is one of the
most important feature of the project.
