Oiseau Rouge Sailing Yacht Concept by Sylvain Viau Design

Submitted by Sylvain Viau Design, Oiseau Rouge project is an interpretation of a IMOCA 60′ monohull extended to 90′. The hull extra length allows better height for accommodation areas inside, which IMOCA is missing, and it is possible to keep a sleek and relatively low profile. An innovative hard chine design offers strength to a well balanced and versatile hull form. Canting keel and side dagger boards are designed to work separately or together when sailing upwind, depending on the power and comfort/speed ratio required.
