AHIMSA (EX. AGLAIA, 2012)
Ahimsa is a spectacular 216ft sloop-rigged aluminium yacht, designed by Dubois.
Built with a combination of innovation and advanced technical craftsmanship,
Ahimsa boasts a low superstructure and clean deck.
Ahimsa’s strengths lie in steering and manoeuvrability, key features include the ability to
hoist the main sail in less than two minutes and tack the boat within 30 seconds.
The 83m carbon mast is the largest ever produced by Southern Spars and had to be transported to
The Netherlands in two pieces.
Ahimsa carries the world’s largest artwork on canvas
– a Code 1 piece by the Norwegian artist Magne Furuholmen.
LARGEST ARTWORK ON CANVAS
Ahimsa started off her second Mediterranean season with a spectacular novelty:
she now carries a Code 1 artwork by the Norwegian artist Magne Furuholmen.
This is the worldwide largest artwork on canvas.
Though one can hardly call a 3600 sqm painting a detail, this is yet another confirmation of
nearly every single detail of this yacht being extraordinary.

Ahimsa is a spectacular 66m sloop-rigged aluminium yacht with low superstructure and a clean deck.
The large sloop rig is all carbon with EC6 rigging and gives a sail area to displacement ratio equivalent to a racing yacht.
This Dubois design breaks new grounds in several areas
– not just the length of this sloop but in the design and all the engineering, innovation, technique and craftsmanship coming together.
For us as a yard, Ahimsa is the confirmation that it’s kind of fun to do the impossible!
Length hull overall: 66 m
