Meet Project Sonata, a Rule-Breaking 351-Foot Sailing Yacht That Cruises Like a Luxury Liner

If ever built, sonata would be a first for sailing superyachts. it would have high-tech sails, but would ride more like a motoryacht., julia zaltzman, julia zaltzman's most recent stories.

The sailing superyacht Sonata is an amalgam of different superyacht features.

What do you call a superyacht concept that takes the progressive learnings from the world’s leading new builds and packs them together in one visionary design? You call it Project Sonata. With three DynaRig systems inspired by the legendary sailing yacht Black Pearl , an inverted bow to slice through waves and enough space on board to compete with a motoryacht, could the 351-foot hybrid sailing yacht have it all?

  • We Toured the World’s First Inflatable Space Station. Here’s What It Was Like.

Project Sonata is the work of emerging Swiss studio Valentin Design. Headed up by industrial designer Valentin Weigand, winner of Young Designer of the Year 2020, and naval architect Romain Acquaviva, the duo have their eyes set on a more sustainable, smarter, and buildable yacht.

“Our aim is to create a sailing superyacht that is more accessible to clients than the ones currently in the water,” Weigand told Robb Report . “Many clients are scared off by how complicated they perceive sailing yachts to be, requiring large numbers of crew and complicated rigs. We want to offer something that combines the joy of sailing with the ease and comfort of a motoryacht.”

Project Sonata would be the largest super sailing yacht in the world.

Sustainability is also key to the concept. Two diesel electric engines generate recuperative energy through the yacht’s propellers while sailing, supplying enough power for the hotel load and to charge its Lithium-Sulfur battery pack. The 4MW batteries, developed by Oxys Energy, are free of heavy metals, such as cobalt, and are considered safer than Li-ion batteries.

The pair have strengthened their proposition by drawing on the expertise of Derek Munro, director at Divergent Yachting, who was instrumental in the construction of Oceanco ’s groundbreaking build Black Pearl .

“Derek has first-hand experience on what can be optimized or simply didn’t work with Black Pearl ,” said Weigand, “and we’ve worked that into the design of Project Sonata to eliminate those points.”

What works includes a 16-foot retractable keel that saves 6.5-feet of draft when required. The considerable DynaRig is low in maintenance yet highly durable, meaning a smaller crew is required. And, like Black Pearl , the tips of the masts can be unmounted to give enough clearance to sail under the Bridge of the Americas, and access the Pacific Ocean through the Panama Canal.

“ Black Pearl’s masts underwent three years of engineering and are proven to be highly efficient,” said Weigand. “By using the same molds on Project Sonata, we save time and money. In the same vein, the seating arrangement aboard Black Pearl is not ideal for heeling. We’ve ensured all exterior decks have been designed with heeling in mind.”

That said, Project Sonata has also undergone computational fluid dynamics studies to ensure it performs when sailing without heeling too much. “Most sailing superyachts’ main functions are regattas, which means they are super-fast, super light and heel a lot,” Acquaviva told Robb Report . “This can be really scary for owners who are used to stability and comfort, so our design prioritizes the guest experience. Our inverted hull extends the waterline length and cuts through waves.”

At 2,992 gross tonnes, the interior volume is sizable, complemented by features that follow the current trend for a connection to the outdoors. “The only thing our design lacks is a large swimming pool, which requires too much space on a sailing yacht,” said Weigand. “We’ve mitigated that with multiple exterior platforms to access the sea itself.”

A large sun deck affords alfresco dining. On the interior, glass is king, creating a design without visual borders. The master stateroom, spread across two decks, is virtually encased in a glass bubble. The VIP cabin enjoys direct access to its own private beach club, making a novel charter proposition. A double height atrium in the formal dining area speaks of elaborate guest entertainment. This also supports the studio’s intention to make the forward areas formal, so as guests move aft the more causal the design becomes.

Project Sonata, presented to the world by Ocean Independence, is a bold proposal from a studio made up of keen sailors, but whose sailing yacht designs to date have been limited to the 50-foot range. But that hasn’t deterred the dynamic pair.

“I’ve been sailing on boats since I was kid and worked in refit and construction for over 12 years,” said Acquaviva. “I understand what an owner wants from a sailing yacht, but equally what the crew need. When combined with visionary design and fully engineered naval architecture, we believe that’s a winning formula.”

Sonata 6.7 is a 21 ′ 11 ″ / 6.7 m monohull sailboat designed by Gary Mull and built by Sonata Yachts (AUS) starting in 1986.

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

Lifting keel version also available.

MS Lunnaya Sonata Wiki

Built as Marshal Rybalko, MS Lunnaya Sonata (formerly MS Zirka Dnipra / Dnieper Star) is one of Russia's signature "Project 302" river cruise ships.

Dmitriy Furmanov-class Russian river ships

"Dmitriy Furmanov class" (aka "Project 302") are 4 series of Russian river cruise ships built in GDR (Eastern Germany) for USSR (Soviet Union) in the period 1983-1992. The vessel class name honours the Russian writer Dmitriy Andreyevich Furmanov (1891-1926) who also served as Bolshevik commissar (Red Army officer).

These Russian river cruise ships (a total of 27 units) were all produced by VEB Elbewerft Boizenburg and represent an upgraded (larger) version of Project 301 (Vladimir Ilyich-class) riverboats. These ships were used for passenger (cruise) shipping in Northwestern USSR - on the rivers Volga, Belomorkanal, Lake Onega, Volga–Don Canal, Kama and Amur rivers, as well as on Dnieper River (Ukraine), Black Sea (coastal cruising) and Yangtze River (in China). Following the USSR's collapse (1991), all these boats were acquired by private companies (Russian and foreign).

Sonata Yacht Association

for Sonata Yacht Owners

Sonata Yacht Association of Victoria (Inc.)

sonata yacht

The Sonata Yacht Association of Victoria (SYAV) was formed in 1978 and incorporated under the Associations Act in 1986. It’s financial year is 1 May to 30 April.

In 2020 the business name ‘Sonata Yacht Association’ (SYA) was adopted to reflect the fact that association membership is not limited to Victorian Sonata owners and in fact people from other states are very welcome.

Statement of Purpose

 1.  Act as the co-ordinating body for all SONATA yacht owners in Australia.  2.  Maintain affiliation with Australian Sailing.  3.  Liaise with public and private organisations in the marine and boating industry.  4.  Assist members with the purchase and sale of SONATA yachts.  5.  Keep members informed via meetings and newsletters.  6.  Conduct a program of racing, cruising and social events.  7.  Maintain class rules.  8.  Promote sailing as a safe family activity and assist newcomers with acquiring sailing skills.

Since 1978 the SYA has operated successfully as a strong association with a large percentage of Victorian Sonata owners and many interstate members. SYA  has affiliation with the peak yachting body, Australian Sailing , which represents the interests of all sailing associations and yacht clubs in Australia.

SYA  caters for all SONATA yacht types plus those yachts with a ‘Sonata’ hull shape ie Southern Cross 23 and Northwind 7 yachts.

When it comes to buying or selling a yacht the backing of a strong association is invaluable. Our technical knowledge and expertise of Sonata’s will benefit either party. We also have access to an excellent yacht insurance arrangement which provides preferential rates for members.

Our association is run by a committee comprising a President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Membership Officer, Cruising, Racing, Technical and Social committees, newsletter and web-site editors.

sonata yacht

The committee meets regularly and may be contacted via the President or Secretary. See the  SYA Contacts page.

Newsletter – the Associations newsletter, Sonata Notes, is emailed to members 10 times a year.

Racing – For those interested in racing the Association organises an annual class championship over a weekend – typically around the 3rd week in February each year. Please see newsletter for details.

Cruising – There is an extensive cruising program prepared at the beginning of each season covering many attractive venues around Victoria and interstate for longer holidays which is published in the newsletter.

sonata yacht

Technical Support – Within our Association there is an extensive body of knowledge that may be called upon. The Association has a range of equipment available to members including a boat-cradle lifting hoist that enables the hull underside and trailer to be easily accessed.

MEMBERSHIP is open to all owners of Sonata yachts.  The membership year starts 1st July.  You may download an application form from the  Public Documents page.
