R42 to Build at ACMY's in 2018
A project that explores the boundaries between a high performance cruiser and a lightweight racer. The R42 deploys a fine main hull with just enough concession to creature comforts below decks to ensure that planning a long term cruise is as equally realistic as mixing with the action at the front end of the fleet in a major race series.

The R42 is custom designed to a well thought through design brief from an experienced Australian trimaran owner. Construction will start at Jamie Morris's Australian Custom Multihull Yachts on the Australian Gold Coast early in 2018.
