Palma International Boat Show is from April 28-May 1
Northrop & Johnson will exhibit the 40m J Class Rainbow, 34m Song of the Sea and 21m Xeres sailing monohulls along with the remarkable 22m Hanstaiger X1 trimaran at the Palma International Boat Show from April 28-May 1. All four yachts will be available for viewings in the Palma Superyacht Village for the duration of the four-day event.
Rainbow, the 40m J Class
A multiple award winner, the hybrid Rainbow (asking price €6,950,000) was built by Holland Jachtbouw as a replica of the classic J Class yacht Rainbow that won the America’s Cup in 1934. Featuring naval architecture by Dykstra Naval Architects, the 2012 sloop is the first J Class to have a hybrid propulsion and power system, with batteries that can be charged while sailing to reduce the carbon footprint along with her electric systems.
Song of the Sea, the third Swan 112
Song of the Sea (€3,850,000), the third Swan 112, was launched in 2002 to a design by German Frers and has an interior by Dick Young. The Finnish-built 112-footer features a Southern Spars carbon mast and furling boom.
Xeres, an IMX-70 by UK’s Green Marine
Xeres (€1,195,000) was designed by Niels Jeppesen of X-Yachts, built in the UK by Green Marine and launched in 2005. The IMX-70 was built as a high-performance cruiser-racer and features a carbon hull and deck construction with carbon composite bulkheads and keel floor structures. Green Marine’s other builds include Ben Ainslie’s America’s Cup yacht, 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race winner Abu Dhabi and Alex Thompson’s IMOCA 60 Hugo Boss.
The X1 from German builder Hanstaiger
From Germany, the Hanstaiger X1 (€4,250,000) is a remarkable 72ft trimaran with a 32ft beam and 92cm retractable centreboard. Featuring a dark hull and sail, the yacht features an angular, glass filled superstructure along with 830sqft of outdoor spaces including a 320sqft flybridge and 290sqft beach club extension.
Hanstaiger X1’s remarkable interior
The hull of the Hanstaiger X1 is created out of one single piece of vacuum-infused high-grade mould, which comprises fiberglass, carbon and titanium. The superstructure of the Hanstaiger X1 is constructed entirely of carbon-fibre with solar panels integrated into the superstructure. www.northropandjohnson.com
