We’ve enjoyed working with Dutch cruising yacht specialists Hutting who have asked us to design a 52-footer for long distance cruising.
The design is robust with the elegance of a classic yacht. Sportive yet graceful. It is a yacht with endurance that makes you feel confident and secure, regardless of the conditions or your destination. A well thought out design with a high standard in every aspect: safety, comfort, performance and sustainability.
Sailing under heel, the extended waterline length will give extra performance. In light winds the yacht will benefit from a small wetted surface and the retractable bowsprit to carry an optional Code 0 or Gennaker. A high aspect jib combined with a large mainsail with an easy reef system to reduce sail area, makes the Hutting 52 an ideal short-handed sailing yacht.
While she will be performance orientated with a fin keel and spade rudder, she will also feature a large, very comfortable cockpit and deckhouse arrangement forming the focal point of the accommodation. Due to the aft overhang, a spacious and safe cockpit could be designed, a detail not often seen on yachts this size.
