Infiniti Yachts and McConaghy Boats Unveil the 32m Sailing Yacht Infiniti 105

Infiniti Yachts and McConaghy Boats have teamed up to introduce a new, 32-metre sailing model called the Infiniti 105. The first five hulls will be available for sale with Northrop & Johnson’s Sean McCarter, with delivery on the first scheduled for 2025.

According to the shipyard, the Infiniti 105 will have “greater performance and comfort than any comparable yacht” and “reduced heeling and pitching”, thanks to its Dynamic Stability Systems (DSS) foil.

The yacht will be constructed to DNV class in pre-preg carbon fibre, with a combination of foam and Nomex cores cured under vacuum to ensure a lightweight, stiff structure.

There are two bow options available: a reverse bow for a “race-orientated and progressive feel” and a traditional, vertical bow. There is also room for customisation in the layout (including arrangements suited to cruising or competing) and a customised sail plan if required. The default sail plan includes a self-tacking headsail and captive-controlled mainsheet to ensure “that sailing does not require an army of crew”.

Accommodation is for up to six guests across three cabins, including an owner’s cabin positioned forward. Design is by naval architect Hugh Welbourn (a pioneer of DSS) with interior by Design Unlimited. Renderings reveal a contemporary, monochromatic design proposal, with the main saloon positioned below the glass superstructure for a “dramatic influx” of natural light.

The Infiniti 105 also comes with the option of a hydraulic lifting keel, improving performance and allowing access into shallower anchorages and ports. The draught range is between 5.6 to 3.6 metres, although this could be increased for a “more performance-orientated evolution”.
