Pauger were glad to join our passion for boat building to Russell’s project and to be part of the creation of this new and exciting racing class. We are proud of the yacht as it presented many challenges and requires very high level of precision.

The majority of RC44s are built with a carbon outlook – an achievement in itself – ensuring the perfect conformity to the one-design specifications. Furthermore as the boat is built with infusion technology (one-shot infusion developed with SP Systems) a very high standard of preparation and accuracy is constant expectation.

The very close relationship and teamwork between designer and builder resulted in an outstanding performance with great efficiency. Only a small number of prototype boats has been built to give a fine tuned racing yacht.
