DESIGNER'S COMMENTS




Dieter Empacher Designs was commissioned to design this attractive, fast pilothouse cutter for an American yachtsman who is looking for a design with speed as well as living and sailing comfort. This new pilothouse design fills a void for sailing yachtsmen.

The design is non-rule binding, and with its high boat speed under sail and power, it provides protective seating for guests and crew with 360 degree panoramic visibility, while sailing or at anchor. This yacht, with its shallow draft and 65' bridge clearance, is equally comfortable for an extended offshore passage or for powering the inland waterways.

Years of design experience and listening to yachtsmen has allowed Dieter Empacher's design office to break ground for new cruising comfort, which has been long overdue.
