Reichel-Pugh reveals modern and classic sailing designs

28 January 2017 • Written by Chris Jefferies

Design and naval architecture studio Reichel-Pugh has showed off the diversity of its offering by releasing two contrasting sailing yacht concepts.

The first of which, the 61.1 metre Reichel-Pugh 200 Classic, is a smaller sister ship to the 66 metre Hetairos, which was launched by Baltic in 2011, while the second is a modern 55 metre sloop design.

In a statement, the studio added: “We continually develop concepts which are the latest accumulation of thinking and research, however these only serve as a blank canvas from which an owner can begin to realise and develop his vision.”

The Reichel-Pugh 200 Classic (pictured above) has undergone extensive CFD testing to ensure enhanced performance without impacting upon its traditional aesthetic appeal. This twin-masted sailing yacht would feature accommodation for eight guests and eight crewmembers, while the vast open-air cockpit would include a dining area that could seating up to 12 people for a formal meal.

Meanwhile, the Reichel-Pugh 55m Modern (pictured below) promises a responsive sailing experience with the potential for superyacht regatta racing. Accommodation is for eight guests and ten crewmembers, and star features include a spacious superyacht sundeck with extensive seating aft of the upper deck helm position.

The al fresco dining area takes up a shaded position amidships, while the aft deck lounge provides another option for soaking up the sun. Indirect lighting built into the bulwarks gives this sleek sailing yacht a stunning nighttime party piece.

Naval architecture projects recently completed by Reichel-Pugh include the 27.5 metre Southern Wind custom sloop Allsmoke and the 39.62 metre Baltic 130 Custom sailing yacht My Song.
