Reichel/Pugh 68 Fast Performance Cruiser To Be Built By Baltic Yachts

June 19, 2018

One of the newest Reichel/Pugh projects is a custom 68′ Fast Performance Cruiser to be built by Baltic Yachts in Finland.

The yacht is designed for short-handed long-distance offshore cruising with the ability to very comfortably overnight at weekend destinations. While comfort and aesthetics are the priority, the owner is also focused on a performance design that can excel on the race course. The result is a hi-tech composite structure with a gorgeous interior that will no-doubt provide a highly-rewarding sailing experience.

Reichel/Pugh President Jim Pugh explains that, “The all-carbon composite, fixed keel, twin-rudder sloop with a powerful square-top main ensure exceptional performance on the race course. A captive winch-controlled mainsheet and powered winches provide safe and easy sail handling while cruising with a pin head main and furling jib.” Read More …
