Closer look at Reichel/Pugh's 35m sailing yacht design

Unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show in September, Reichel/Pugh Yacht Design has released further information regarding their latest 35 metre sailing yacht design. The U.S. company has teamed with the U.K. based Design Unlimited on her interiors.

The design focuses on creating the ultimate sailing yacht experience for her owner, with high performance capabilities. Hull and appendage hydrodynamics, perfected rig positioning and a structure optimised for strength and stiffness provide a reassuring feeling of stability and control especially in more arduous wind and sea conditions.

She features flush teak decks with an ergonomic layout for racing and a protected social guest cockpit seating up to ten guests. One her most notable characteristics is the glass-topped coachroof which floods the raised saloon with natural light.

Two general arrangements are offered; the first features a forward master suite with cinema snug, day-head and twin cabin. Aft accommodation features generous VIP cabin and midships galley with crew quarters further aft. The second arrangement features a large full beam master suite with walk-in wardrobe aft, VIP and twin cabins at mid-ships and crew accommodation just forward of the Galley and TV is a snug fourth Cabin.

“We develop our next generation superyachts hull shapes incorporating into the design the on-the-water experiences from all our designs and the results of our latest hull studies in computational fluid dynamics,” says Jim Pugh. “All areas of our designs are open for development with focus on hull development, on improving the underwater foil package, reducing windage and improving the yacht’s seakeeping, systems and function. In tandem the collocated Reichel/Pugh engineering team advances the State of the Art in composite structural design improving stiffness and strength, while lowering the VCG and further improving the yachts stability.”
