Opus 68

Overview

Were very proud of this yacht! A combination of our naval architecture and styling, married to an interior by one of Germanys foremost interior designers and excellent build quality by Brune Yachtbau makes this first Opus a hugely impressive vessel by anybodies standards.

The brief was to create a yacht with classic exterior lines, an interior with the space of a modern yacht and very good sailing performance. The first yacht has a schooner rig which will be easily handled by a short handed crew using manual winches but, the Opus can also be supplied with sloop rig and electric or hydraulic sail handling equipment. For lovers of more traditionally styled yachts here is the best of both worlds; a spacious, beautifully designed interior, clothed in a classic exterior above the waterline, with a modern underbody below to provide performance.

More details of this lovely yacht can be found at the builder and interior designers web sites, the links to which are below. Much more information on the thinking that lays behind her and those involved, are at this site - www.sailbeautiful.com - where you can also read about the 68’s smaller sister, the 55, which is in the planning and early design stage.
