Whether it is performance cruising, offshore racing, or the Americas Cup, Reichel/Pugh Yacht Design has had unparalleled success at producing some of the worlds most distinctive and consistently rewarding sailing yachts including designs that have continuously won major regattas over several decades.
The world-renowned naval architecture and engineering firm’s latest creation design number 260, the 35-meter Superyacht, combines grand prix racing speeds with elegance worthy of royalty in a modern, and truly versatile package. R/P’s last superyacht in this size range was the hugely successful 34m Nilaya who’s interior and style was by Nauta Yachts of Milan. Nilaya, R/P design #178 was designed in 2007, built by Baltic Yachts and went on to be the most successful superyacht of the era winning the Superyacht Maxi Class of the Maxi Rolex Cup in 2011,12 and 2013. The fast 35m luxury performance cruiser has been designed to marry the on-deck and interior living spaces.
The ultra-flush teak decks feature an ergonomic layout for racing and a protected social guest cockpit seating ten and a wide aft sun lounge.
The glass-topped coachroof allows light to fill the raised saloon while lowering vertical glass panes brings the outside in. For the interior design Reichel/Pugh teamed with U.K. based Design Unlimited
