Whisper – hull n. 01 of SW78 mini-series.
True to Reichel Pugh’s refined naval architecture, Whisper flaunts sleek hull lines, with a fin and bulb keel. The general arrangement plan, deck layout and interior systems were designed by the Italian team Nauta Design, while the composite structural engineering for the cored Kevlar and carbon hull was undertaken by the UK-based SP Technologies.
Designed as a cruiser-racer, Whisper is ideal for blue water navigation and competitive races.
Her deck layout features a large guest cockpit together with a sunbathing area, which is well separated from the sailing cockpit.
Below deck, Whisper features a freshly renovated light modern interiors thanks to a classic teak-lined saloon with an ivory natural fabric upholstery.
Accommodation includes a spacious and wide master cabin at the stern, with both a double and a separate single bed finished with an ivory lined headboard, a twin cabin amidships with an additional lifting bunk and a bunk bed guest cabin afore.
