PCP will become famous soon enough
Another interesting one in its way to production, the smallest on the Murtic range, the 43 IRC.

The boat is designed by Botin/Carkeek and the Croat shipyard says about it:

She is a friendly sailing yacht designed by the world's best design team, Botin/Carkeek, combined with unique design envisaged by the architect and passionate sailor Marko Murtic - we present you with a yachts delivering incredible performance and comfort. She is revolutionary; with her functional and minimalistic design, she delivers incredible performance whilst retaining the cool elegance of an ultramodern cruising yacht.

It sets new standards. Yacht serves as comfortable cruiser, short handed family weekender and competetive IRC racer, capable of competitive racing at both club and regatta level.

With its non overlapping headsails for easy of tacking and an asymetrical spinnaker, the Murtic 43 IRC can be sailed to its full potential short handed, without experienced crew.

The technical characteristics are impressive as well as the Polar speeds.

the boat is sleek and beautiful managing to have a very cozy and comfortable interior full of light.

A racer disguised as a cruiser, or a cruiser that can win major races? An interesting compromise
