Malö Yachts Presents New 54ft Flagship

During Open Yards in Kungsviken on August 21-23, Malö Yachts presented their latest project, a new 54ft flagship - the Malö 54. According to the builders, the new launch aims at satisfying customer demand for a larger model, while taking advantage of the great craftsmanship established during the last 70 years of operation at the Malö yard.

The underwater body together with the sail plan is designed by FARR Yacht Design, which ensures excellent sailing characteristics, claim Malö. The hull has a 'beautiful bow overhang in the stem with sharper lines in the forbody'. The sections midships are shallower than previous models and extend into a long afterbody that ends in a classic transom. The cockpit is large, but well protected and functional. A targa arch not only holds the mainsheet track, but also forms a stable framework.

There is a possibility for a completely sheltered position in the cockpit for the crew on watch. The yacht is easily handled, according to Malö, due to all functions being led to the ergonomically positioned winches in the cockpit. Shortening of sail is 'comfortably achieved by a simple push of a button'. The rudder is securely mounted behind a skeg and the propeller shaft is protected. The 19/20ths fractional rig enables easier handling of the gennaker.

According to Malö Yachts, the objective of this design is to 'create a safe and capable long distance vessel of superb quality, truly adapted to its purpose of ocean voyaging'. ”We increasingly find that many of our customers want to cruise extensively and they approach us to bring their dreams into reality. The yacht is therefore designed from start to finish for a comfortable life on board. She will include a number of practical solutions, as well as being equipped with highly reliable systems. This allows the customer to focus on the experience,” says Fredrik Forsgren, designer at Malö Yachts.
