The RP90 is a creative, collaborative blend of the owner’s vision paired with the passion and dedication of the Reichel/Pugh design team. Built by Southern Wind Shipyard and launched earlier this week in Cape Town, South Africa, Design No. 251 is an ultralight Fast Performance Cruiser with detail-oriented, world-class accommodations. She is the result of thousands of hours spent by industry leaders and will be as at home on the race course as she will be on long ocean passages.

Cape Town, South Africa (April 2016) – Last month R/P Naval Architect and Project Manager Tony Beale and Lead Engineer Will Cyr traveled to Cape Town to the Southern Wind Shipyard to visually inspect the build progress of the RP90. This design is the first fully custom build for the Southern Wind Shipyard and is for a recurring client of both SWS and RPYD. For this project RPYD is responsible for the Naval Architecture, Deck and General Arrangement and Structural Engineering.
