Design 2550 - Maysylph

Launched in 1990, Maysylph was considered the pinnacle of a near-decade of mega-ketch design. The line of large motorsailers leading up to the design of Maysylph includes yachts Osprey (design #2391 - 96' LOA), Sea Angel (design #2455 - 88' LOA), Freedom (design #2483 - 124' LOA), Galileo (design #2510 - 123' LOA), Venturosa (design #2529 - 110' LOA) and Astral (design 2536 - 115' LOA), representing a span of 7 years. Her sailing qualities were improved beyond those of Galileo and a she featured a further refined sail plan, underbody and appendages including a wing keel with increased draft.

Here's the layout.

She was built by Palmer Johnson with an interior by John Munford.
