Owen Clarke Yacht Design's New 130's

Owen Clarke Design LLP is recognised as being at the leading edge of high performance sailboat design. They are particularly known as pioneers in the field of canting, lifting, and lifting/canting keels for racing and cruising boats. Now they have used their infamous design skills to design two new 40m (130ft) Superyachts, one is a cruiser-racer design while the other is a full on blue water cruiser.

Cruiser-Racer Design 130

The sleek lined cruiser-racer concept is for an owner who likes to have a stylish cruiser with a clean deck appearance for sailing the blue waters of the Mediterranean or the Caribbean, but also has the racing hull design and performance equipment for competing in the famous Rolex Superyacht circuit.

She has a raised deck saloon so that owner and guests have plenty of space for relaxation and interaction. Built into her luxurious interior are 3 guest cabins and an owners cabin aft with access to a private saloon and aft deck area. One of her top features is the navigation area in the main saloon, which is situated so that the navigator has full panoramic views out over the deck for ocean voyages.

  • Length: 40m (130ft)
  • Beam: 9.15m (30ft)
  • Draft: 6.00m (20ft)
  • Displacement: 118 tonnes
  • Sail area: 838m2

Blue Water Cruiser 130

The blue water cruiser is for the owner who wishes to take advantage of his passion of sailing while keeping his family and guests satisfied. She is modern, functional, luxurious and capable of fast transoceanic passages, making her the perfect home at anchor in remote tropical bays. Owen Clarke Design have created a great cruiser for owner and family to enjoy to her full potential while being handled by minimum crew.

Just like her more racing orientated sister she has a dreadnought bow that offers a maximum waterline length, reduces the yacht’s displacement to length ratio and provides a safer and more secure deck space to tack spinnakers and furling gennakers without the additional complication of a bowsprit.

She will be able to accommodate 10 guests including the owners in 2 guest twin cabins, 1 double, 1 VIP and a full beam owners cabin aft with private access to the aft deck.


  • Length: 40m (130ft)
  • Beam: 9.15m (30ft)
  • Draft: 6.00m (20ft) down, 3.8m (12ft) up
  • Displacement: 130 tonnes
