The Carmen di Bellavista is a racing maxiyacht designed by Bruce Farr for sailing in light-medium winds. As a result, this yacht is particularly suitable for the Mediterranean, where it can produce maximum performance when running before the wind.
The hull is built on a male mould using Kevlar and carbon fibre for the skins and a variable-density Airex sandwich for the core. A glass and Epoxy resin structure designed by the English company SP Systems, and built separately, is mounted inside the shell to absorb the forces exerted by the keel, mast and rigging; this same structure serves as the engine mounting. In addition, ring frames at the bow and stern add further stiffening to the hull. The deck is also made of Kevlar and carbon fibre with an Airex core and most of the components are made of titanium for racing purposes.
