Middle cockpit variant: Lots of structure, three levels
Retirement is different. After a short absence from the industry, the bustling Schmidt is back and has founded a new brand called Michael Schmidt Yachtbau. It starts with an 80-foot yacht, constructed by BrentDesign / Lorenzo Argento and designed by the English star architect Sir David Chipperfield. The puristic and voluminous boat shows a new deck design. Aft there is a large lake terrace with its own access to the master cabin, which takes up almost a third of the interior. The cockpit itself is framed by the superstructure and could be described as a central cockpit. The deck is on three levels. A version with an aft cockpit and one with a deck saloon are also being planned. Visually and technically, the boat should be kept simple in order to save weight and reduce maintenance. The Brent80 should be sailed by a small crew.
Clear lines and lots of volume dominate
The hull, bulkheads, floor pan and deck are made of carbon composite. The outer layers of the fuselage, however, consist of the less sensitive E-glass. The boat is manufactured in a vacuum process and cured in an oven. The composite work comes from the Polish shipyard Regayacht, which has extensive experience through its work for the Mylius and Vismar brands. The expansion comes from another supplier.
The boat will be equipped with a carbon mast, Park Avenue style carbon boom and a self-tacking jib. The expansion is also carried out in a lightweight construction from lacquered or veneered foam panels.
The plans for the Brent80 and further details will be presented at boot Düsseldorf (Hall 7a, Stand C 7).
Consistent purism also prevails below deck
