PCP will become famous soon enough
There is a new racer cruiser class box rule for serious racers, an all carbon fast boat, a big one with 100ft

Well, we would expect a carbon racer to have a pretty poor interior, just the needed for racing but not this one. The minimum racer-cruiser interior fit out would comprise of:

Owners en-suite cabin with queen size double.
Two guest cabins with split beds that give the option of singles or doubles.
Additional pullman berths in each of these cabins would be an option if racing offshore.
A large saloon split into a separate lounge and dining area.
Galley to port with rule minimum, 3 hob stove, oven, fridge and freezer.
Chart table with day head to starboard.

The crew area is spacious, but it can be fitted out using lighter materials and methodology than the guest areas and it comprises part of the accommodation requirements of the rule. There is one en-suite cabin with two bunks and an allowance for pipe cots if additional crew is required for cruising or if racing offshore.


This is the design program and you are already thinking, this is no race boat. Well, look at the first one:



Green Marine - Southampton - Wally Cento : 100 pieds, 100% Wally - Annonce bateaux - Annonces bateaux - Occasion Bateaux - Occasion Voiliers - Occasion voiles



And look at all this carbon interiors:












Of course, it could only be a wally, the Wally Cento the design is from judel-vrolijk and it will be made by Wally.
