RP 68′ Fast Performance Cruiser Launches

Reichel/Pugh Design Nᴼ 256 – 68’ Fast Performance Cruiser
Comfortable cruising, day sailing and racing all in one beautiful yacht

Builder Baltic Yachts notes, “This spectacular 68ft silver-hulled, fast cruiser/racer for a repeat customer should deliver a highly rewarding sailing experience for her short-handed crew. The all carbon composite fixed keeler is bristling with performance enhancing features including a powerful square-top main, a retractable propulsion system, race boat style appendages and titanium fittings, plus a sophisticated and comfortable interior. As her captain said: “This is as a high performing cruising yacht that can excel on the race course.” A captive winch-controlled mainsheet and a powered winch for the asymmetric hoist take the weight out of handling. Displacing just 17 tons, almost 8 tons of which is in the keel, her advanced composite hull is built of pre-preg carbon over a Kevlar honeycomb core with Corecell used in slamming areas. A lot of attention was paid to fairing the bottom and appendages to the same standard as the topsides. Build time was just 18 months.” Read More …
