“Want to go faster?”
Designed to always be ahead, the Shogun 50 is the yacht for you who want to go faster and be out in front.
Her speed comes from the lightweight carbon structure and daring design – her overall weight is only 7 900 kg – 45% of which is found in the keel bulb. She has a retractable keel, with a blade made of carbon, which allows the draft to decrease from 3.3m to 2m.
Large twin rudders keep the Shogun 50 steady and safe in the water, she is almost impossible to wipe out. Thanks to the mast being so far aft, the increased foretriangle allows plenty of headsail options to choose from depending on the conditions and occasion. Just like a skiff, she also has an extendable bowsprit, making her a real blast to sail.
As much as she is a thrilling joy to sail, the Shogun 50 is also an example of extraordinary design. She has definitive lines purposely created to make her stand out and if you ask the designer, you will learn they are also there for good reason. The spray rails and a negative bow provides performance and comfort – the essence of every Shogun yacht. The spray rails limit the amount of water on deck, while the bow shape gives the hull a longer water line, increasing performance. The sleek line of the bow has been carefully designed to continue the angle of the forestay, giving the Shogun 50 a smooth and contemporary design that stands out.
