Cauta Super Sailing Yacht
High Performance World Cruiser
To create a sailing yacht closer to art than the yacht, that was the aim. The Cauta is the culmination of this endeavour. A sailing yacht sublime in every detail. From a design perspective, the Cauta sailing yacht has to epitome of provocation, a yacht that breaks the mold of traditional premium sailing yacht body form. The lines of Cauta are inspired by "Shy Albatross" what gave her name, some authors treat shy albatross as the sole species in the genus Cauta. The philosophy of Cauta's design is everything for a reason. Every line, surface and detail of her design enhance the yacht's performance and comfort.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Few brands in the superyacht industry produce such recognisable and innovative vessels. The design philosophy of Cauta was aiming to create a unique form which can give new perspective to the yacht world. Cauta, a 55m high performance world cruiser, is a very challenging, futuristic and unique yacht designed by Timur Bozca. A revolutionary Dynarig sailing system, Cauta has two self-standing and rotating masts which host ten sails, all of which can be controlled by a single sailor. In contrast, the interior of Cauta is warm and welcoming, thanks in part to the OLED lighting system utilized, but also to the luxurious amenities which surround the guests, with aquatic-themed accommodations for up to ten of them available on board.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Boasting a revolutionary Dynarig sailing system, Cauta has two self-standing and rotating masts which host ten sails, all of which can be controlled by a single sailor. The DynaRig is about twice as efficient as a traditional square rig. Knowing that the owners would be spending prolonged periods on board with their children, comfort was another crucial influence in the design and layout of the exterior spaces. Having previously owned a large sailing yacht, the owners identified a large and open flybridge as a necessity. Instead of guardrails, a high freeboard wraps around to become both coaming and bulwark, providing more protection for those on deck than a typical toe rail and a safe place to run sheets and fairleads. Protected behind the superstructure are several living areas: a large cockpit, dining area, lounge and sun beds. The aft cockpit can be transformed into a paddling pool for providing maximum relaxation and for children when it is not safe to swim in the ocean.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in October 2014 in Milan and finished in January 2015 in London, and was exhibited in Superyacht Design Symposium & ShowBoats Design Awards in February 2015.
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Cauta is a lightweight high performance yacht with carbon fibre hull and superstructure. Cauta has two carbon fibre self-standing and rotating masts which host ten sails. The design philosophy and lightweight structure required a bare minimum of detailing, the owner still desired a rich, unique and sophisticated interior ambiance. To achieve this balance of modernity and comfort, OLED technology was used throughout. This gives a dynamic modern structure to the cabins and exterior elements. Additionally, unlike traditional yachts, master and guest cabins provide incredible exterior view and the magical feeling of underwater view with massive monolithic polycarbonate side and floor panels.

The design philosophy of Cauta was aiming to create a unique form which can give new perspective to the yacht world. Realising the importance of accurately designing for owners and crews, the project sets out to establish what makes a yacht physiologically and psychologically practical and appealing to sailors.
As an initial primary research tool, a conceptual framework about human factors, technology and design were constructed to find out what makes a yacht practical and appealing. Then, a questionnaire and an interview were constructed to find out what the owner and crew did, thought, liked, disliked... Although, there were many external secondary sources that were also used such as internet, magazines, videos, books...etc.
Had investigated an optimal sail plan for an environmentally-friendly, futuristic, comfortable, large, world cruising project. Evaluating all possible hard- and soft-sail options, for the Cauta project, chose a DynaRig schooner.
