For the sailor interested an elegant platform that can do it all, Le rêve, overall winner of the prestigious 2018 Swiftsure International Yacht Raceis truly “the dream.” Today we often think there are cruising sailboats and racing sailboats, with no crossover between the two, however Le rêve has proven this wrong. The caring and attentive owner specified tasteful performance optimizations without inhibiting her cruising capability or comfort, and the result has been victories. These optimizations include a complete North Sails sail inventory and upgraded running rigging and systems. When the racing is over, Le rêve is quickly converted back into her cruising form, with all the cruising equipment that enables simple, safe and comfortable cruising. She features the desirable three-stateroom/two-head layout, each with separate shower stalls. Her light oak interior with beautifully contrasting blue upholstery is modern and bright. The large cockpit is protected with a custom dodger, bimini, connector panel and enclosure (mesh) by Iverson’s Design and her sails quickly deployed via her in-mast mainsail furler and headsail furler, both assisted by power winches.

Interior Accommodations

The interior of Le rêve   is finished in satin light oak and taupe panels, beautifully complimented by white bulkheads, dark blue custom leather upholstery and a wood cabin sole. Her spacious three stateroom, two head layout (each with separate shower stall) comfortably accommodates six.

Beginning forward, the spacious master stateroom is truly a fantastic space, featuring a walkaround island berth. Ample storage is available in hanging lockers and drawers around the cabin. Hull side windows provide a view and a bright feel to compliment the oak interior.

The ensuite master head is equipped with an electric toilet. A large counter runs along the aft side of the compartment with sink and mirror. A separate shower stall is located inboard, separated by an acrylic door.

The salon arrangement feels much larger than her 45 feet, with a chart table/settee space to port and dining table to starboard. The light wood and white bulkheads with large windows and numerous hatches gives a bright and modern feeling. Blinds on the windows are hidden behind a valance. To starboard, the U-shaped settee surrounds an oak dining table, with a settee inboard on the centerline. There is an open locker and shelves outboard to starboard. The electrical distribution panel, battery monitors and tank gauges are cleverly hidden behind a slider. To port, a sliding chart table allows the settee space to be used either as a nav station with chairs on either side or a double love seat. There is top loading storage outboard and the B&G VHF radio and a chart spotlight.

Le rêve’s galley is to port in the salon and very much feels a part of the salon space. The counter is L-shaped, with fiddles surrounding the gray laminate counter to keep items in place while under way. The forward end is an open counter space with a top loading freezer and front-loading fridge below. Aft is the gimballed two burner stove and oven, followed by a two-bin sink. There is ample storage below the counters, in a shelf outboard along the hull side and generous lockers stretching along the counter above. Storage for wine bottles is located beneath the companionway and in a locker across from the galley aft of the dinette.

The starboard guest stateroom is configured with a generously sized quarter berth. A hull side window adds visibility to the outside and a lot of light to the space. There is storage in a hanging locker and a shelf with additional lockers. A door forward allows ensuite access to the aft head.

The aft head is well positioned in the salon adjacent to the companionway for day use while underway and also as a space to remove wet foul weather gear before settling down in the salon. The electric toiled faces inboard, with a counter and sink aft. A large separate shower stall is separated by an acrylic door.

The port aft stateroom is arranged similarly to the starboard cabin with a quarter berth and window in the hull. A shelf runs along the side of the hull and there is a hanging locker forward.

Deck and Hull

Le reve’s gray hull will catch eyes wherever she goes. Beginning forward, there is an anchor locker with recessed anchor windlass. Aft of this locker is a large deck accessed sail locker that is perfect for storing flying sails and all the other toys that come along with a cruising boat. The deck is surrounded by double lifelines with boarding gates to port and starboard and a wood toe rail. The mainsail is sheeted to an arch that also supports the beautifully constructed canvas dodger. Her spacious cockpit is T-shaped with twin wheels and open access to the stern. A drop leaf table is mounted on centerline forward. Her rigging is very simple, with control lines led aft to cabin top winches, a powered model to starboard that controls the mainsail furling and mainsheet. Aft, two speed electric primary winches assist with headsail sheets. There are shallow cockpit seat lockers and lockers beneath the sole aft.
