UK yacht design studio Malcolm McKeon has unveiled a brand new luxury sloop concept, sailing yacht MM725.

The 72.5m/237.8ft length is impressive alone as a feat of engineering, added to which is her clever concealment of a flybridge deck within the sleek modern lines.
From briefing, one of the most important features was ensuring that the salon received plenty of natural light and the solution was to position the flybridge farther back and extending it over the cockpit for a curved piece of glass to achieve the desired result.

Fold-down bulwarks to port and starboard on either side of the cockpit create desirable balconies for a more open and connected experience when at anchor.

 In a similar way, the swim platform bulwarks also fold down to increase the beach club area, which can be directly accessed via the Owner’s suite. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows in the hull also ensure that the Owner’s suite is connected with the natural environment, receiving panoramic views of cityscapes and verdant islands.

Above deck, the tender well on the foredeck converts into a large pool that has an integrated seating area as well as the option of a Bedouin canopy for shade.

Among her other unique innovations is her sail handling, which stores the downwind sails on a self-towing reel below deck, and a lifting keel and square top mainsail to maximise cruising performance.
