Quality and Functionality Drive Minorca Yachts’ Design

Iñigo Toledo, the designer behind Minorca Yachts, is owner and managing director of Barracuda Yacht Design. He is one of the marine industry’s most well-known and widely acclaimed naval architects and yacht designers.

Here he discusses the recent venture with Sasga Yachts and the creation of the Minorca Yachts line, detailing superior design elements to maximize interior volume and performance capabilities for this new line.

“…it’s all about increasing the volume. Everything is bigger: the prow cabin, room in the lower deck, the dining room, even the number of windows is higher. The volumes are better balanced  and we’ve optimized the engine room so the living space can be bigger.”

Traditional lines paired with a hull design focused on improving performance and reducing consumption places Minorca on the cutting edge of yacht design, while still maintaining the proud history evident in every vessel. Sasga’s resin-infused hull molding process produces a strong, lightweight hull that has a perfect fiberglass to resin ratio, resulting in maximum strength and efficiency.
