The custom C-Yacht 42ac & 47ac

New C-Yacht line created by clients, together with
Dykstra Naval Architects

Unique Sailing


The design of the custom C-Yacht 42ac and 47ac allows easy short-handed sailing. The layout of the cockpit offers a safe and stable position for the crew at all times. The winches are easy to reach from the twin helm positions and all controls are led to the cockpit. The all-new C-Yacht is unique for various reasons.

The ballast ratio, however is the key to the yachts sailing characteristics: As standard the yacht comes equipped with a leaden keel whose ballast amounts to over 40% of the ship’s total weight. This guarantees maximum stability, safety and cruising pleasure.

Designer’s comments

The custom C-Yacht 42ac and 47ac have been designed as comfortable and safe cruising yachts.  No comprises were made when it comes to sailing performance. The cockpit is designed in such a way that it easy to handle the sails, whether you are sailing with a crew or on your own.
