Trends in Modern Yacht Design- Interview with a Naval Architect- Sailing Vessel Delos

Hey Tribe! We know you LOVE the technical side of sailing so we put together this special interview with a naval architect. Kiril did an awesome job filming and editing this together, and we sure hope you learn as much as we did!

Olivier Racoupeau is a naval architect and has designed cruising yachts for Amel, Wauquiez, Garcia, Beneteau, Fountaine Pajot, and many other custom projects. A few months ago while we were in La Rochelle the team at Amel asked if we would like to interview Olivier, who is responsible for the design of the Amel 55, 64, and the new 50 foot sloop that was just launched. We pretty much jumped at the chance to pick his brain about the differences between modern cruising yachts and those from Delos’s era. We learned a lot and hope you do as well! Peace, Love, and Fair Winds from Brian, Karin, and Brady.
