he MY SONG interior is very functional. From the aft cockpit descending six carbon steps is the crew quarter where immediately we have the completely composite carbon fiber yacht construction feeling. Floors, structural bulkheads and even the washbasins are carbon made. The discrete presence of Honduras Mahogany trim to round of the angles is the only concession to finishing. However the decor is perfectly in keeping with the character of this yacht where the technology is very much in evidence. In the crew quarters a carbon table converts into a chart table with all the control instruments as well as the inevitable data processing system including in particular a fascinating piece of software for recording and analyzing the yacht’s performance.
From this area , with its vast galley on starboard, you reach the shower rooms on the port side, with a flimsy plastic film mounted on a roller acting as a shower curtain in deference to weight restriction! Through two doors situated on each side of the steps, you enter two strikingly spartan double cabins, with bunk beds for the crew.
The engine’s room is in the center of the boat under the central cockpit. In a first compartment, opening off the galley, there are two water- makers capable of producing 4.500 liters of fresh water a day when cruising. Obviously when racing MY SONG they are taken ashore, thus saving on weight. The starboard passageway opens onto the engine compartment which enjoys considerable headroom under the beam. Next to the 177 Kw Yanmar engine there is a removable air conditioning unit as well as a generator. One can see the care the has been taken to place maximum weight at the center of the yacht. the center of the boat to have a maximum weight on the center yacht’s.
Via this passageway you have access to a guest double cabin to starboard , with ensuite shower room and head ,which also doubles up as a day head , and to the spacious saloon with an area of around 22 mq. With its two large navy blue sofas facing each other, this is a very comfortable lounging and dinning area, with a strikingly modern feel.
To port , besides the rater steep steps leading down from the central cockpit, there is a communication area with fax, satellite telephone, SSB,VHF and so on.
There is a twin bedded guest cabin positioned amid-ship to port, with ensuite shower room and head and fold out child’s bunk.
In front of the mast you enter the owner’s immense cabin with a double and a bench seat which also converts into another berth. Here the dècor is much the same as that of the rest of the yacht. Great care has been taken the Nauta Design using 3D CAD system and renderings, with the composite furniture veneered in mahogany up to the cupboard height in a modern version of lambrie styling.
Various experts have unanimously approved the remarkable quality of the yacht’s sandwich construction around the Nida Nomex honeycomb core from Du Pont de Nemours. Impregnated under vacuum with epoxy resin between two carbon skin , this sandwich structure certainly offers the best performance. Nine times more rigid than steel ,it is solid enough to resist heavy impact and doesn’t break under extreme pressure. In the end the hull built by Cookson Boat is only 1500 Kg.!
14 Tons total ballast torpedo bulb and fin. The ballast bulb is a lead casting with antimony attached to a steel fin. Keel bolts are of high-tensile stainless steel. Steel fin is epoxy coated.
7/8 Southern Spars high Modulus carbon mast , 36.60 mt. above the deck with three rows of swept back spreaders angled at 22° degrees which sufficient to prevent dismasting in the case of runner-handling error.
With her fully battened 215 mq cruising main sail and her furler mounted 145 mq genoa she loses none of her liveliness and responds to the well almost instantaneously.
This sensitivity is the result of excellent balance between sail plan and keel.
Between 3 and 12 knots of true wind MY SONG is without doubt one of the fastest mono-hull and seems unrivalled for her size in real time and easily took the lead in light airs. Close-hauled between 18 and 20 degrees of the wind , “MY SONG”
On board of MY SONG you are immediately struck by the extreme starkness of her deck plan Every fittings has been installed for maximum efficiency, starting with the aft gangway which fits flush into the floor of the aft cockpit.
With her two large shallow cockpits and the fine line of her coach roof, this 84 footer present a very uncluttered deck that one can move around easily with a good sense of comfort and safety.
My Song is a very high-tech sailing yacht with no concessions to traditional design solutions.
On board , the rationality of the technology is astounding and results in a very ergonomic design, making for greater efficiency. Thus the deck fittings, to a superb design by Harken, number of more than 10 winches. The two winch drums for the foresails and the one for the main sail in the aft cockpit are then operated electrically. As you might aspect, two other electric winches at the foot of the mast allow the sails to be hoisted without any effort. There are also hydraulically adjustable jib sheet cars and removable Reckmann hydraulic furler on the forestay.
The cruiser racer concept is signaled by the presence on the transom of two chain plates to take the two running back stay to a more suitable position when cruising.
