Mylius 60' CK Offshore-racer & performance cruiser.
The Mylius 60’ CK, the racing evolution of the new Mylius 60 FD, is an offshore-racer & performance cruiser. A yacht designed to take part as a protagonist in the most important offshore regattas, but also equipped with spaces and comforts such as to be an excellent yacht for summer cruises in the Mediterranean.
The concept of the project, at the express request of its first owner, has been developed by providing a canting-keel system of latest generation resulting in a substantial increase in righting moment with a not excessive draft (3.500 mm), considering the size of the boat.
With the full carbon construction (the bottom structures are made using carbon fiber pre-pregs) and the ballast weight reduction made possible by the canting-keel system, the displacement has been kept below 15 tons in lightship conditions. The hull volumes have been totally redesigned for the higher speeds and the lower heeling angles foreseen in the project: the new hull is therefore characterized by higher LOA / LWL and Bmax / Bwl ratios, larger bow volumes, more flared central sections to increase the stability of form, extremely flat stern lines and finally by a reduction of the immersion of the canoe body and a less accentuated rocker. Thanks to the increase in stability provided by the canting-keel system, the 60 CK offers a very generous sail plan and the values of the sail area, upwind and downwind, are very close to those of a pure racer.
The deck plan, while keeping the distinctive Mylius style, has been redesigned for a more sporty use: the steering positions have been moved to a more forward position, the mainsail track is at their stern, the halyards winches are positioned on the sides of the companionway while the primary winches, the main sheet winches (German system) and the backstay winches are all in line at the sides of the cockpit.
When racing the winches are powered by a hydraulic system with a PTO pump on the main engine, however the lithium-ion batteries installed on board have the capacity to provide the necessary power to run the winches when the boat is in cruise version.
The interiors have been designed in a light and sporty concept, with extensive use of carbon on sight, while retaining the necessary comfort for sport cruising. The careful study of the levels and internal arrangements has made it possible to contain all the components of the canting-keel system entirely under the floor and the canard foil box is positioned in a way to not interfere with the living spaces. The layout offers a large owner’s cabin with a dedicated bathroom in the front, two aft guest cabins with a bathroom, the crew cabin at the far bow. The galley and the chart table are respectively on the port and on the starboard side of the access ladder aft of the large main saloon. There are also lockers for personal effects in each cabin and ample space for the stowage of clothing and navigation equipment.
The Mylius 60’ CK is also offered in a version with a fixed keel, with draft at 3,800 mm and relative increase in displacement in relation to the required set-up.
