Moth: World’s coolest yachts
Published on October 11th, 2021
Yachting World has been asking top sailors and marine industry gurus to choose the coolest and most innovative yachts of our times, and speed record holder Paul Larsen nominated the International Moth. Here’s the report:
“There are so many boats out there that have cool aspects and yet remain horribly compromised or are no longer relevant. After a ridiculous amount of consideration (and excluding our own creations), I have to go for the foiling International Moth,” says the world’s fastest sailor, Paul Larsen.
“Like foiling or not, you can’t shoot the messenger! As a cool boat it stands on its own, and for what it has since inspired.
“The concept just works so well. Its performance and accessibility inspired sailors, backyard builders, designers and performance sailing in general.
“Buy a good one to race at your club or against the best of the best. This little foiler came to the local skiff/cat party and smacked all the old cool kids down. Things change when that happens.”
