Hello minecrafters !

Today let me show you my sailing yacht! The design is quite classic, inspired by another project from  Van Geest Design called ‘60M Sailing Yacht’. The singularity of this sailing boat among the others PMC boats I believe is that I took the time to recreate nice shaped sails with realistic planking in a reaching point of sail. That’s way the genoa is larger than the mainsail. On one hand, I tried a design that I found good enough to keep on the genoa, but I’m not fully satisfied hence if you had any suggestions of shape, I would be glad to hear them. On the other hand, I like the gray stripes on the mainsail aiming to represent the battens adding somewhat graphic design.

About it dimensions, the length is of 61 blocks, 84 blocks tall from the top of the mast to the bottom of the keel, and the beam is 9 blocks long. The mast itself is 76 block tall, and the boom is 27 block long. If you want to build a realistic sailing yacht, I recommend you to take the proportions of the Yacht Aglaia, the ones that I took to complete mine. In terms of digits, it is a mast of 84 meters for a 66 long boat, with a beam of 10.5 meters. Therefore you have a ratio of 1.27 for the mast and 0.155 for the beam, which may seem weird at the beginning of the construction but will make a good render eventually.

The furnishing of the deck and the hull is complete but there is nothing impressive to see because it is really hard to make some nice indoors designs with 2.5 blocks ceiling height. However, I managed to fill the hull with 2 bedrooms, a kitchen, a dining room, a toilet, a bathroom and a small living room.


Minecraft 1.8 is required to have a proper look to the yacht, It would be even better to use my texture pack because of the custom textures I used. The texture pack is available here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/gn48jkjbqgqpadp/Mixpack+3.1.zip

All the terrain has been taken from o00gareth00o‘s map on PMC called “Rocky Islands”, here is the link to his creations:  http://www.planetminecraft.com/member/o00gareth00o/ 

Screenshots made with my texture pack and SEUS  and Rudo’s play shaders, renders made with Chunky. 

About the yacht, feel free to copy it on your map/server as long as you keep the credits to me. 

Thanks for reading/watching/visiting/whateveryouredoing, have fun and see you soon for other builds!
