In developing this 49 foot cruiser racer, we were primarily focused on characteristics that make for a good cruising boat: comfort below and above deck, ease of handling, and good seakeeping.


We combined this focus with hull and appendage design  developed from the latest advancements in grand prix design to make for a very exciting package.

Whether racing with a full crew or shorthanded cruising, this yacht will certainly leave you smiling. The yacht has a moderate sailplan that is well balanced with the underwater profile for excellent feel and an easy touch on the helm. The sailplan is easily carried while in cruising or racing mode as the yacht exhibits ample stability from the ballast keel and hull form.

The deck styling is very clean, with a sleek coachroof and coamings, full teak decking, and most running lines underdeck. Hydraulic push‐button winches and high quality deck gear have been located to allow for ease of use and compatible with a cruising or racing mode. At the end of a nice day of sailing the cockpit table allows for six to sit comfortably and enjoy a meal on deck.

Under deck the yacht is modern and comfortable with a very open main salon that features a dining area to port, with a settee and open galley on starboard, and an enclosed guest head to port forward. The full beam master stateroom forward boasts an ensuite head. A navigation station is integrated into the port side saloon settee, which you pass on the way to the enclosed guest staterooms aft. There is also a second guest stateroom to starboard aft.

Reichel/Pugh Yacht Design is developing the structural design in‐house and builds upon the success and experience of the design office’s engineering team in providing complete composite/metal structural design analysis and solutions. Construction scantlings will meet the latest ISAF Offshore Special Regulation Category “1” requirements with Plan Approval services to be provided by Germanischer Lloyd.

The project follows in the success achieved by Reichel/Pugh over the years in developing visually stunning and incredibly quick cruiser racers of all sizes, and continues our long standing and successful relationship with McConaghy Boats.
