Presenting "R-SIX" - a new HH66 Catamaran – setting the standard for luxury racing Cats.
R-SIX is the first in a new line of luxury performance cruising catamarans, designed to set the standard, for performance luxury sailing. With its Morrelli & Melvin design pedigree, its generous interior spaces, and clever use of ultra-modern materials, R-SIX achieves a level of performance and luxury, not previously found in this genre of very fast sailing catamarans.
Performance is the backbone of this design. Winner of the 2016 Multihull Cup in Palma, R-SIX was designed for comfortable cruising, but able to ‘kick it up a notch’ and move with speed when desired. Modern hull forms, the latest generation curved C daggerboards and high aspect spade rudders, incorporates design learnings from the latest America’s Cup campaigns. And 100% carbon fiber composite sandwich construction, produces a hull and structure of incredible strength and stiffness, while interior construction of lightweight cored panels, finished with exquisite veneers of both wood and stone, presents you with the highest quality interior finish.
Unique styling, innovative sailing systems and a beautiful interior combine to make R-SIX a truly exceptional yacht. High performance elements make this boat a competitive racer, while its efficient design allows you to cruise, or make easy fast passages, with comfortable +350nm days. And its unique styling and fine finish provides comfort and ambience second to none.
After his first sailing season, the owner has become increasingly excited about racing, and is ordering a higher performance version of the HH66, making R-SIX available, after it completes the Fastnet race, in August 2017.
No matter what you are looking for - whether you want to race, cruise Caribbean waters, explore the reaches of the South Pacific, or simply pass the time in a Mediterranean fishing port, "R-SIX" will be the most talked about craft in the bay.
From the designers:
"The HH66 represents the evolution of Morrelli and Melvin's 25 years of performance catamaran designs. We blended lessons gained from three America's Cup campaigns, around the world records, 24 hour records, and over 25 custom cruising cat designs, for discerning owners, from 46ft to 90ft. We have listened to, cruised and raced with our clients to understand their needs, and incorporate these ideas and features into the design of the HH66 Super Cat .
In collaboration with Hudson Yacht's international team of design engineers and builders, we have strived to bring the best equipment, buiIding materials and techniques to this next generation performance luxury cruising cat.
Utilizing state of the art, light and strong materials, allows us to maintain an unusually high degree of Iuxury finishes and detaiIs, not normally found in performance cruising cats. The HH66 is a light and strong race boat in disguise, so owners can enjoy all the comforts of home, to make any time spent on board luxurious, fun and safe."
-- Gino Morrelli - Morrelli & Melvin --
As designers of all the HH66's and HH55's, the personnel at Morrelli & Melvin are intimately familiar with all the aspects of the design, construction and history of this impressive vessel - and are in the enviable position of having been asked to represent R-SIX on the world stage. We look forward to assisting potential prospects with their due diligence during the sales process, and continuing support, after the sale.
