The Mylius 60CK, an evolution with a sports tone of the new Mylius 60FD, a is an offshore-racer & performance cruiser. She is conceived to play a leading role in the most important offshore regattas, but she is also equipped with enough spaces to guarantee a comfortable Mediterranean summer cruising.
The concept of the Mylius 60CK, according to the expressed whishes of her first owner, has been developed providing the yacht with a state-of-the-art canting-keel system, achieving a big increase in stability with a contained draft (3.500 mm) in relation to the general dimensions of the boat.
The full carbon construction (the floor structures has been built in pre-preg carbon fiber system) and the ballast weight reduction, allowed by the canting-keel, let to contain the displacement of the yacht below the 15.0 tons in lightship conditions. The hull volumes have been totally redesigned considering the higher sailing speeds and the reduced heeling angles predicted: LOA/LWL and Bmax/BWL higher ratios, fuller bow volumes, flared mid-sections to improve transversal stability, extremely flat aft exit, together with a pretty reduction of the canoe body depth and a smaller rocker were thus designed. Thanks to the increased stability provided by the canting-keel system, the 60CK shows a generous sail plan, allowing to set the upwind and downwind relative sail area ratios close to those of a pure racer.
Despite the preservation of the Mylius hallmark, the deck area has been redesigned for a more racing use: the steering pedestals has been moved forward and the mainsail track is abaft; the halyard winches are at the companionway sides; the primary winches, the mainsail winches (german system) and the back winches are aligned at the cockpit’s sides.
