Big Pimpin’
In 2007, the design office of Bill Tripp produced Valkyrie, a 78ft modern cruiser-racer that offers its owner great luxury and style while retaining much of the pedigree of a modern race yacht. The build materials, for example, are the same as those used in custom raceboats: pre-preg carbon fibre over a foam core for the hull and deck. This materials mix delivers plentiful strength and stiffness while helping to keep this large yacht’s displacement down to just 38,000kg. Meanwhile, a generous sail area deployed on the yacht’s carbon rig gives a sail area/displacement ratio that ensures impressive performance in all conditions.
Dubbed a ‘café racer’ by Tripp, this fast, sleek and comfortable custom yacht features a flush deck, powerful winch package and innovative line-handling systems so that in both racing and cruising modes the teak decks remain clutter-free. In a nod to the dual purpose nature of this performance yacht the long carbon bowsprit retracts into the bow to keep both anchoring and mooring easy.
This boat is available through the Seahorse Brokerage.
