Vitters 140

Last spring Vitters Shipyard launched this 140-foot aluminum sloop designed by Ed Dubois. Built to MCA standards, the yacht is a refinement of other DuBois designs in this size range. The contemporary birch interior by Dick Young Designs is exceptionally well finished. Bulkheads are brushed stainless steel with oiled- teak surrounds, and all the bathrooms have floating teak countertops with stone basins and hidden back-lighting. The owner’s cabin is built on two levels. Young has set the bar for luxurious space high; there’s even a separate dressing room and a sauna.
