66 Metre Superyacht AGLAIA by Vitters & Dubois.

Sailing yacht AGLAIA at 66 metre (216.5 ft) was launched earlier in March by Dutch Shipyard Vitters a well known high quality super sailing yacht Shipyard. The Superyacht AGLAIA sloop (hull number 3063) is a huge modern luxury yacht as designed by Dubois Naval Architects with interior design by Redman Whitely Dixon.
One interesting point about this sailing yacht is her massive mast. As she is a sloop she needs one very tall and technologically advanced mast, the second longest mast in the world at 83 metres.
She has racing yacht performance due to her powerful rig, long waterline length, light weight and lifting keel, which when full extended provides enviable upwind pointing and speed. a futuristic Vitters superyacht she makes a very impressive sight.

In the Greek mythology AGLAIA (or Aglaea) was the goddess of beauty, splendour, glory, magnificence and adornment.
