The Reichel/Pugh 45 is quite an evergreen design, not extreme in any direction, but regularly appearing in the top of the result sheets of many reputable inshore and offshore races.
Sometimes designs are just right and this one certainly is. Of course there is always room to optimise, and tweak performance, and PTERODACTYL has had her fair share in recent years, and follows trends and developments to make her the most competitive that she can be.
A new bow, longer bowsprit, new keel, and rudder (to name a few) have made her one of the boats to beat in the Newport, RI – USA area.
Now ready for her new owner, in sparkling condition and ready to race.
A well sorted, upgraded and maintained Reichel/Pugh 45. A power full weapon with the ability to slay giants (see Vineyard results from 2019, 2021 and 2022). Technically challenging and rewarding – she starts surfing in 14 knots TWS, and remains controllable in heavy air while sparking in light air.
