The exterior is certainly non conventional, but has some very clever touches, which were lead by the team at BMW Designworks. BMW, of course, are most prominent in the automobile sector, but BMW Designworks Ltd are a design company that originally started in California in the 1970s and were bought by BMW in 1995. Their designs are prevalent in many households, as their portfolio includes top brands such as HP and Nokia.
REGULUS’ interior for example, was designed with a new concept of mobility design. This is paramount to the fundamental layout of this yacht. They drew upon BMW Designworks in depth experience in the mobility sectors which allowed a fresh approach to interior and exterior design – with ergonomics playing a large part of how the yacht flows, the intimate knowledge of space and usability that is generated from years of study of many different mobility solutions.
REGULUS was built in Belgium by Zeydon Yachts, in a custom facility, using vacuum infused multiaxial E-glass and epoxy resin, with the addition of carbon reinforcement around the high load areas, a relatively new technology of building at the time in 2008. This gives the ultimate strength to weight ratio for the yacht and the performance that she delivers.
Zeydon Z60, REGULUS has been through a large refit in 2020 and 2021. Giving the next owner the opportunity to have many maintenance free years of enjoyment.
New sails, saloon cushions, batteries and repainted hull are just a few of the main upgrades that she has had. She has a very high specification, with carbon mast and boom, rod rigging and beautiful and fresh carbon sails which last and increase righting moment – so less pitch and roll, and you reef later.
REGULUS will certainly turn heads wherever she goes with her superb sailing performance and stand out looks.
