- The design brief for this boat is to fill the gap between the RE10.66ph and
the RE13.7ph, styled on the lines of the RE10.66ph, this new design is
orientated more for charter and offshore cruising.
- The interior layout has a large double bunk forward with shelves each side
and a hanging locker and dresser to port. This area is separated by a
companionway door. Just aft is the chart table over the freezer box with
instruments behind. Opposite to the chart table is the toilet and separate
shower area. The keel stepped mast is confined to the toilet. There is one
step up to the galley on port, another step aft of the galley brings you to
the landing at the base of the companionway steps. This creates a single
large step up to the elevated saloon seating in the pilot house which allows
seated visibility forward and abeam. Under the table is the engine room
which has ample space for a four cylinder diesel motor and a small genset,
inverter and batteries, water maker etc. To port and aft of the galley is
the second head and vanity. This accesses to the saloon and to the port
private aft cabin. There is another double cabin to starboard.
- There are two steps out to the cockpit with a seat each side of a permanent
cockpit table with flaps that fold up to put your feet against while
sailing. This also stops nick knack's rolling about. There is a pair of
winches at the forward end and aft end of the cockpit seating. The helm is a
central wheel on a pedestal at the aft end of the seats with instruments on
a pod just in front of the wheel and gauges on the bulkhead at the forward
end of the cockpit. Aft of the pedestal is the helm seat which houses the
gas bottles. When the lid is lifted the helm seat exposes the BBQ, sink and
also creates a wind break. This is also at a comfortable working height
because of the step down onto the boarding platform.
- The landing is large enough to store an inflatable dingy on end and tied off
to the tower while underway or on the mariner. The tower is designed to
house a couple of medium sized solar panels and the main sheet. It also has
the VHF aerials and SSB antenna bolted to it if applicable. This feature
ensures that in advent of being caught in treacherous weather causing a mast
to break you do not lose communications. There is also a bimini cover off
the tower which could have clears to enclose it, for an all season cockpit.
- The rig is a generous fractional sloop with double swept spreaders an
topmast back stay for safety. The head sail is on a furler and the main in a
boom furl for ease of handling.
- The sail plan is offset by a full volume hull with all the ballast in a bulb at the bottom of the keel. The keel and rudder use modern foils to reduce drag and increase sailing performance. Download study plan
