134-Foot Sloop From Dubois
The Dutch builder Bloesma van Breemen has finished plating up this 134-foot aluminum high-performance cruising sloop from the board of Ed Dubois. Dubois has altered the customary deckhouse he has used on many yachts this size and has given this new yacht a low profile. The yacht has a relatively wide beam of just under 30 feet and a draft of 131/2 feet. Dubois has also specified belowdeck captive winches, an in-boom furling system, and hydraulic running backstays.
The interior includes a large main saloon, a master stateroom with walk-in closets, and three guest cabins, one with twin berths and two with a double berth. In the yacht’s forward section there are comfortable accommodations—including a separate dining facility—for a crew of six. Wood paneling in all guest cabins will be flame mahogany. Built to both Lloyds and MCA standards, the yacht will carry two tenders for use by guests and crew.
