The New Full Carbon Racer Cruiser RP-Nauta 100′ Revealed

The new RP-NAUTA 100’ custom yacht is proceeding at full speed at Southern Wind Shipyard in Cape Town, South Africa. Work is on target for the delivery scheduled in Spring 2020.

This is not the first time that Nauta, Reichel/Pugh and Southern Wind have worked together, in fact they have already collaborated on several semi-custom series by Southern Wind and on the recently launched custom SW-RP 90’.

The experienced owner’s main brief was for a very fast performance cruiser with an aggressive and sporty look. Since the owner plans to enjoy this yacht for years to come, the yacht’s look and onboard technology had to per designed to stay at the forefront long after the launch.

Nauta worked on the 100’ custom project with three main targets in mind: functionality for safe and comfortable navigation, performance for racing in the most renowned superyacht regattas, and sexy, sleek design to keep the yacht turning heads wherever he may sail.

The new RP-Nauta 100′ is a fast 63 tons full carbon racer cruiser with a lifting keel (6.10m-3.90m).
The RP-Nauta 100’ features a modern deck design, marked by a very low freeboard and a sleek coachroof which appears to be suspended in air thanks to clever and discreet use of teak, glass and composite. The deck is also very clean as all tracks for manoeuvres have been recessed.

The interiors feature a seafaring look that recalls the aggressive and modern look of the exterior. The interior layout features a spectacular saloon with a studio area, 3 guest cabins with the Owner’s suite located forward, and a functional crew area aft. The crew area includes two cabins, the navigation control station, the galley and a crew mess.
