10 May 2021


Gibraltar-based brand Infiniti Yachts has confirmed that its first production sailing yacht, the Infiniti 52, will be officially launched later this year.

Designed by Infiniti Yachts, engineered by developer Gurit and manufactured by Composite Builders, this upcoming racing yacht stands as a first of many – the Infiniti 52 being the first racing yacht designed, engineered and built around Dynamic Stability System (DSS) foils.

Featuring a DSS transverse foil, the Infiniti 52 presents pure performance without the expected risk and cost of more complex class-driven foils, allowing the yacht to be sailed easily with a crew of eight.

The Infiniti 52 will also be the first racing yacht built around Doyle Sails Cableless technology as well as the first moulded yacht to incorporate Harken air winches and GrandPrix deck gear.


“To me, the Infiniti 52 is a fantastic vehicle to demonstrate the many advantages of Doyle Sails luff sail technology,” said New Zealand sailing great and Doyle Sails affiliate Stu Bannatyne.

Stu Bannatyne is currently a sailor in, and the coach of, Tulikettu Racing – the team who will be campaigning the Infiniti 52.

“The Infiniti 52 is designed for peak performance, without compromising handling and comfort, capable of F1 speeds with incredible ease,” added Harken GrandPrix Sales and Project Manager Skip Mattos.

Other brands associated with this hull are Isotop, Design Unlimited, NZ Spars & Rigging and Waypoint Racing.

“We were all very impressed by the team behind the Infiniti 52. We have an ambitious set of offshore goals, and this is the future proof Grand Prix yacht required to achieve them,” said Tulikettu Racing skipper Arto Linnervuo.

The Infiniti 52 is expected to land in the US from July before being campaigned by Linnervuo and his Finnish race team.

“We are thrilled to be part of the revolution and look forward to racing this fast, fun rocket that will be easy to sail with a smaller crew,” added Linnervuo.
