USA. Reichel/Pugh Yacht Design - X-Treme 32

Thursday, 19 January 2017


The latest collaboration between G-Force Yachts and Reichel/Pugh Yacht Design is the fast and fun X-Treme 32 - A high performance design for inshore and offshore racing.

The briefing to the Reichel/Pugh team was to develop a flat-out racer that delivers the thrill of a high-performance design as well as the ability to capture podium positions.

The X-Treme 32 hull form is honed to deliver performance across a wide wind range. The hull lines minimize wetted surface in low-heel situations but maximize hull form stability when heeled. The maximum beam is carried well aft at the deck to insure crew weight is as far outboard as possible, providing maximum stability and straight heeled waterlines.

The deck geometry and hardware layout is optimized for efficient crew work while keeping windage to a minimum. Controls for the main trimmer are led to the cockpit floor centerline, just forward of tiller. Backstay winches are angled inboard to allow the crew to trim the backstay with feet outboard hiking.
