Designed as a luxury cruising yacht, the gurus at Reichel/Pugh Yacht Design came up with a new sailing concept focussed on fusing cutting-edge performance with functional high-end features in a creative package.

Sweeping curves, large glass panels and uncluttered deck spaces are what sums up the 55-metre One Modern design. “The Reichel/Pugh 55m is a pure luxury cruising yacht, that has high performance and easy handling,” says Jim Pugh. “It is the next level in luxury yachting.

A flybridge cockpit creates the ideal daytime cruising spot and offers the helmsman excellent views across the deck and beyond. Larger groups can easily be accommodated on the main deck below and leads inside to a bright and roomy saloon served by those life-sized side windows.

Another unique design element is the owner’s suite on the aft deck. Not only is this one of the most comfortable areas onboard while underway, this setup also features wrap-around windows on three sides of the suite that looks out over the swim deck, which has been lowered as much as possible to make viewing the stunning surroundings from the semi-sunken suite possible.
