It looks like carbon fiber is not just the favorite material with automakers these days. Even yacht makers are incorporating this lightweight and expensive material in their designs. And the latest yacht makers to use this material are New Zealand’s Yachting Developments, who have recently launched their latest carbon fiber Superyacht, the Bristolian. Designed by Philippe Briand, the Bristolian is a lightweight, low profile, super-sleek sloop with an ultra-modern lightweight foam core interior, black hull, black carbon fiber rig, and distinctive black sails. At 121 ft, the Bristolian boasts of an owner’s cabin, two guest cabins forward, a split-level saloon amidships, and accommodation for 6-8 crew aft. The luxurious interior includes Sycamore wood paneling and a centerline skylight. Twin pod helm stations provide the necessary control and navigation equipment and direct access to the galley and crew quarters. A mean machine, the Bristol is definitely a class apart.
