Going For The White Spots. When in the old times those brave explorers came back from their trips into uncharted territory they marked the areas on the map that they still haven’t ventured into ‘here be dragons’ to warn the people of the unknown dangers that might lurk somewhere out there. Of course, there were those sailors that where intrigued venturing exactly there…


Today those white areas on the maps have long been filled in, but still there is a certain thrill in leaving the beaten tracks of the Mediterraneans or the Caribbeans and head into the great wide open.

In close co-operation with newcruise Yacht Projects & Design in Hamburg coquine![design] had developed this well balanced 105ft world cruiser sailing yacht that is equally fast and easy to handle as it is comfortable for long journeys. A special emphasis has been given on creating ‘real sailing experience’. What that means? The result is a surprising blend between state-of-the-art technological solutions ( like the ring-frame construction or the use of glass) and an almost ‘retro’ appearing focus on old-fashioned sailing. Coffeegrinders instead of push buttons. While this is not everybody’s cup of tea, there are still some sailors out there that like to head for uncharted territory. On the map and in their mind.
