Unfurled – 46-meter vessel is the first yacht built as collaboration between Vitters and renowned Argentinian racing yacht designer Germán Frers. Both the design studio and the yard have a long track record of high performance cruisers and their joint experience created a great combination. Unfurled has a sophisticated, innovative interior based on simple geometric principles, but rich in detail reflecting the owner’s rational design approach and objective perfectionism.

To achieve the highest quality for propulsion solutions, the attention of the engineering team was focused to enhance hull performance without dragging a feathered propeller through the water. This integrated design had to be achieved within a tight weight focus.

As such, for the main propulsion two lightweight retractable pods have been custom developed by the Vitters Shipyard’s in-house engineering team.
Both thrusters are direct drive and are able to rotate 90° enabling flexible vessel movement then retracting behind flush hull doors for sailing.
