RAPIDO 60 - The World's Best Ocean Cruising Trimaran
The RAPIDO 60 is an "Owners Yacht" - designed and built by real sailors - for real sailors! Take the highly experienced sailors that have built more production trimarans than anyone else in the world and team them up with one of the best multihull design groups in the world--- the result is an innovative ocean cruising yacht. The first of its kind!
The RAPIDO 60 can go to windward as well as, and even better than, the best racing monohulls, is light, strong and very fast on all points of sail. The Rapido 60's Kevlar, E glass, carbon and foam sandwich construction combined with water tight bulkheads, crash zones and auto fire extinguishers in the huge engine compartment and equipment area ensure that it is safe and as unsinkable as possible.
All heavy and variable items of equipment are centralized, including anchor chain, fuel and water and all provisions for extended long term cruising. The massive buoyancy of the floats combined with a beam of 11.7 meter (38') beam and a righting moment about equal to an America's Cup 72, ensures outstanding and unparalleled stability.
The RAPIDO 60 is a purpose built ocean cruising trimaran designed for extended cruising in comfort. A spacious open layout with the cockpit, saloon, galley and navigation work station all on the same level provides superb visibility as well as an expansive living space of 5.7 m x 3.8 m (18’ 7" x 12’ 5”) with 2.1 m (6' 10” ) headroom. Superb all points visibility when helming, high and dry away from the elements and with major controls leading to the helm makes single or short handed sailing easy and safe. The result, a yacht which incorporates all the best features of a bridge deck cruising catamaran, while retaining the trimaran’s unbeatable safety, seaworthiness, stability and ultra fast speed.
A trimaran design was chosen because no other yacht gives you such ultra fast speed, stability, safety and sailing joy, that real sailors crave. We chose Morrelli & Melvin to design the yacht because in our opinion they are the most up to date and thorough multihull design group in the world today. They don't just sit in the design office, they sail boats, build boats and have hands on experience and technical knowledge derived from many successful Americas Cup campaigns. The result, the Rapido 60, the first ocean cruising trimaran to offer both superb performance, and space, all in one yacht. One that will take you there safely, quickly and in real comfort.
