A raining day didn’t stop the excitement for the launch of new “Oscar3“, the first among new Milyus 65′ created in a Flush Deck version. The launch ceremony took place last Saturday in Marina di Cala de Medici in Rosignano Solvay (Italy).
Myius Yachts is living a very exciting period, involved in the construction of two other Mylius 65′ (one in FD version, the other in Raised Saloon) and three Mylius 76′ (two Flush Deck and one in Deck Salon version), confirming this way as one of the world’s most active yards in the market of luxury fast cruiser-racers, from 20 to 24 m.
Oscar3 is a particular boat: her owner is the architect Aldo Parisotto, who already owns Mylius 50′ Oscar2 and who, as partner of Parisotto&Formenton Architecture Studio, has also contributed to the definition of the boat’s layout, details and materials.
The project (by Alberto Simeone, as usual) presents full cruising interiors and systems but the boat is also ready for an intense season of races. Oscar3 is 20.20 m long, 5.25 m wide, with a sailing area of 258 square metres and a displacement of about 20 tons. These numbers are, first of all, possible thanks to an advanced construction technology which uses composite everywhere: hull, deck, bottom structures and bulkheads are all made of a carbon fibre sandwich, with an expanded PVC differentiated-density core (lamination is solid only in some areas subject to a greater load).
The project, supported by Mylius Technical Department, is an evolution of the bottoms present on previous Mylius 60′-65′ but with a better ratio between the sail aera and the displacement. Moreover, the bottom is wider than the previous ones in its astern sections. All this ensures a greater holding and course stability, in addition to better performances at high speed.
As we already said, the owner gave his own contribution to the definition of the boat’s layout and interiors.
The dinette is a large open space, clean, essential and flooded with light, equipped with opposite sofas. Interiors are in smoked eucalyptus and open pore oak. A carbon sliding door separates the living zone from the master’s one, conceived as a large suite: the corridor is covered with leather and the installation of the closet takes a contemporary twist, as far as materials, finishes and accessories are concerned, of the luggage suitcases theme. The bathroom has a separated shower on the right, while the master’s double bed is located on the forward bulkhead.
On the right side of the boat we find the chart table and the cabin crew, with superimposed beds. On the stern, there are the kitchen and two guest cabins, each equipped with a bathroom and a private shower. The sail locker is equipped with a small toilet and shower, while the stern garage can accommodate a 2.70 m tender.
