Description

Solaris reinvent a modern version of the Pilot Classic. It took two years of study and aesthetic-functional tests to combine the comfort and the performance of a hull designed with the simplicity of the window-coachroofs of the past century. It is definitely the most ambitious project of recent years. Thanks to this 72 Solaris confirm its leadership in the design and construction of custom yachts in the range between 70 and 80 feet offering real bluewater yachts designed by the best designers in the world whose yachts have been sailing the globe for years. Deck: the saloon windows are unique allowing a true 360° view without sacrificing the interior dimensions typical of a saloon in a 72 ft. The off-center companionway combined with the classic coachroof of the pilot classic allows the creation of three separate living areas on board: cockpit with a wide large table and seats protected by a sprayhood and bimini; central sundeck more than 2 meters in length; separate helmsmans cockpit to control all the running rigging. The 4 winches control all the concealed sheets and halyards. The coamings and the wash-board in polished mahogany are a strong reminder to the tradition. Hull and construction characteristics: the waterlines are the result of different tank tested hulls. From the beginning, the design choice has been the search for performance and balance of the hull at sea.
