One Classic. One Modern. NEW Concepts for the reichel/pugh 200' Classic and 55m superyacht - scroll down for the complete press release


The Reichel/Pugh studio continually develops concepts which are the latest accumulation of thinking and research, however these only serve as a blank canvas from which an owner can begin to realize and develop his vision. The 200’ Classic is an offshoot of the 200’ Reichel/Pugh-designed Hetairos, which is the most advanced yacht of its type ever built, combining the beauty of a Classic and belying the superlative performance of its modern underbody. The 55m makes no pretenses of being anything other than a modern superyacht that can cruise the oceans in luxury yet thoroughly dominate superyacht regattas. Reichel/Pugh continues to open new paradigms in yacht design providing a truly authentic value and client collaboration second to none.

Design No. 262: 200’ Classic Superyacht

Provoking a reaction of beauty – Recreating the natural beauty of a classic yacht on the fluid surfaces of a modern hull combines the romance of the past with modern performance and vastly improved seakeeping. The final hull shape of this Classic will have undergone an extensive CFD study to further enhance the performance without impacting the classical aesthetics. Incorporating modern construction technologies now practiced at top yacht builders allows the Reichel/Pugh team to develop an easily driven hull at a much reduced displacement, greatly reducing the sailing loads. This design benefits from the team’s extensive experience that came from developing the Naval Architecture of the groundbreaking 220’ Ketch, Hetairos, Reichel/Pugh design no. 181.
