About the Euphoria 54
The Euphoria 54 is the first in an exciting new range of performance cruising yachts to be designed by the renowned naval architect German Frers. With an enviable international reputation for drawing elegant, ocean-going cruising yachts, German shares his thoughts on this innovative design…
My aim has been to create a contemporary, sea-kindly and safe 54-footer that combines excellent performance with the highest levels of live-aboard luxury. The wedge-shaped, powerful hull-form and ergonomic deck layout offer a very good balance between performance, ease of handling, aesthetics and comfort.
The clean, efficient deck layout – free of halyards and lines – is a particular hallmark of ours. The mainsheet arrangement runs forward of the companionway hatch, well clear of the cockpit, and a great safety feature. Other lines run aft in halyard channels hidden within the deck, leading to jammers port and starboard. Winches are positioned close to the helmsman to enable simple short-handed control when required.
The sail plan, controlled by a runner-free, swept-back spreader rig, is available with a choice of aluminium or carbon-fibre spars, together with either slab or roller-furling options depending on your intended use for the boat. For the performance-minded owner, the slab-reefed mainsail is cut with an efficient square-top head for maximum power. However, the Euphoria 54 has been primarily designed for cruising and charter sailors who appreciate and enjoy the easy-handling characteristics of a design that will deliver great performance and comfort in equal measure.
