This exciting new project is designed for life aboard, long distant cruising in complete comfort and style. Whether the colder southern Chilian coast, or the warmth of the Pacific Islands, the Voyager 72 is perfect for those looking to explore hard to get to destinations, in comfort, speed and style.
The Voyager 72 was commissioned by a New Zealander who wanted an exciting performance cruising yacht that he could use to explore hard to reach places on the global cruising circuit. But he wanted it done in complete comfort, in a hull that looked stylish and modern. Why wouldn’t you, we ask.
Featuring a powerful but easily reduced sail plan balanced with a high righting moment ensures exciting, fully controlled sailing in all conditions. A lifting keel and twin rudders allows access to shoal draft areas that are hard to reach by deeper drafted yachts. All sailing systems lead back to the twin wheels for easy shorthanded sailing.
A semi hard top bimini covers the forward area of the cockpit for getting out of the elements, and a large area aft of the wheels allow Tender storage as well as sunbathing and lounging when in warmer climates. The transom hinges down to further extend the cockpit when at anchor as well as allowing easy launching and retrieving of the Tender.
