RP130 My Song Most Innovative Sailing Yacht of 2017

February 7, 2017 · Posted by kate

18 winners of the ShowBoats Design Awards 2017 have been announced and Reichel/Pugh’s 130′ My Song has been crowned The Most Innovative Sailing Yacht of 2017. Reichel/Pugh wishes all those who submitted and the winners a warm congratulations.

Reichel/Pugh, Nauta and Baltic triumph with things you don’t see: a sophisticated, fully retractable, azimuthing propeller, hydraulic and line runs hidden in the bulwarks to reduce deck thickness, a “crush nose” on the keel bulb to reduce impact and damage of a grounding, and a construction weight-shaving program by the yard that rendered even small parts such as electrical cable trays in carbon fibre. Even the interior has some weight-saving tricks with resin-coated linen used for floors, countertops and bulkheads. In three hours the rig can be switched from a typical cruising mainsail to a flat-topped main and split running backstays for racing. For stowing the 400kg Code Zero racing headsail, a very large drum hidden in the forepeak coils the 55m sail. For cruising, the wide stern creates a sheltered sunbathing area that features hydraulic seating integrated into the flush decks.
