Based on the successes of the first Truly Classic 128 Atalante and TC128-2 Vijonara built at Pendennis, a third TC 128 is presently under construction at SES yachts in Turkey, with hull construction at Bloemsma.
The options available for the Truly Classic 128 are clearly illustrated aboard the latest interpretation of the design with the owner requesting a single deckhouse and a steering position set well aft. Her design again shares the same hull lines but has a different sailplan deck and interior layout.
In addition, this yacht will be unusual in that she is fractional sailplan, which should provide her with a sparkling performance in light winds. The spreaders are swept back, so that only one set of runners and checkstays are required. The boom will be of Park Avenue type for easy sail handling.
Under the water a torpedo-style T-bulb keel has been carefully designed using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and positioned slightly further aft so that it relates to the mast step position and the machinery space positioned slightly further aft in this yacht. With a spade rudder and no skeg this yacht, which has a similar righting moment to that of a J-Class, will be a powerful and exciting sailing yacht.
Down below the deckhouse saloon has been moved aft and the classical styling throughout is from our own Hoek Design team.
Our office is responsible for the exterior and interior styling and design and all naval archtecture work.
