Currently located in Seattle, Washington, the 2007 Reichel/Pugh 55 Zvi is primed for another successful ocean racing campaign across the Pacific!
Asking Price: $538,000
If ocean racing is on your bucket list, look no further than the Reichel/Pugh 55, Zvi (ex Crossfire and Rima 2). Zvi is an optimized, purpose-driven design by the best in the business — a collaboration effort between Reichel/Pugh, Tony Beale & David Oliver, along with Greg Stewart of Nelson Marek Yacht Design and Justin Ferris of Doyle Sails New Zeland, built in Australia by McConaghy Yachts.
Zvi is a near sistership to the Australian racer Wedgetail (ex Yendys), built just months before. The design brief called for a powerful and fast IRC design capable of competing against Transpac 52s inshore buoy racing, yet strong enough to handle the most grueling offshore events. With a greater focus on offshore racing, interior volume and headroom were high on the list priorities. Compared to a TP52, Zvi offers considerable interior living space, full-size bunks, a complete and proper nav station, and far greater hull and deck strength. Her high modulus carbon rig and composite C6 rigging adds greatly to the stability of this design. This is a powerful design capable of strong upwind performance in the 9+ knot range and even more exciting downwind rides at well over 20 knots.
Truly turnkey, rating optimized (ORC and ORR), and set to race across the Pacific Ocean in 2023, this immaculate ocean racer is immediately available and presents an excellent opportunity for the right crew to pick up where the current owners are leaving off. Zvi’s stellar performance and strong showing in the 2022 Pacific Cup is a testament to the care, attention, and preparation she has received in recent years. A second to finish (elapsed time: 7 days, 13:35:02) behind line honors winning Pyewacket (modified Volvo 70) was a highlight for her owner and crew. Zvi is fully primed for another ocean crossing and the registration deadline for the 2023 Transpac is March 1, 2023 (https://transpacyc.com/race-info/2023-race-info). The 52nd edition of this legendary 2,225-mile ocean race from Los Angeles, California to Honolulu, Hawaii starts in late June.
Zvi underwent a extensive refit during the winter of 2020/2021 following her current owner’s purchase in August 2020. No part or system onboard was left untouched. Extensive vessel improvements and upgrades were completed with no expense spared. Invoices from CSR Marine and Doyle Sails are available.
Zvi’s equipment list includes a shipping container and custom shipping cradle. A Ford Transit team van with racks, tube and box carrier can be available separately.
Highlights of the recent refits include:
