MP 100 is a new sailing yacht 100' long. It is a particular project because it has all the signatures of a racer: a broad stern, maximum beam near the transom, a chine barely over the waterlines that starts aft and dies away at the sides of the bow, and, naturally enough, a trapezoidal mainsail. At the same time, she is safety and comfortable cruising yacht right for navigations across the oceans. She is a Yacht with elegance classic shape like the ancient sailing yachts. The challenge of the project was to build gorgeous, solid, high-performance beauty for around 30 per cent less than the price of the competitors. The notable features of MP 100 are: - diesel/electric hybrid power, with lithium battery pack; part of the electric motor’s power is also supplied by photovoltaic panels on the deckhouse roof; - lifting keel; - the transom is particular, opening up to create a great beach area with direct access to the owner’s cabin’s relaxation area on one side and the galley on the other. Staying aft, there is also tender storage; - large saloon with an inside helm station and chart area; - the natural light of the interiors of this yacht is one of the most important feature of the project.
