It is increasingly difficult to find 6 or more friends to go sailing, for a regatta or just for fun. Crews of 2-4 is something you see more and more and something which is more realistic to organize nowadays. Likewise, the whole tourism is moving from Sat-Sat full week concept to short breaks somewhere from 1-4 days.
We developed a sailboat that is in line with times we live in: less people on-board and higher frequency of shorter stays. Reacher 780 will accommodate up to 4 people with adequate comfort for day sailing, weekend break, or even longer camping-style stays for sailing enthusiasts. Beam of 2,54m means you can trail it on the road without any special permit, while boat's low weight means you can do it with a regular family car. Sailing-wise, boat’s impressive sailing performance will make it a blast no matter is it a family cruise or a regatta. It’s time to rediscover smaller boats again and to make the most of that every nice weekend or afternoon!
The problem with many cruiser-racer’s today is that they are often only one of those things – you opt to buy a racer version or a cruising version (different keel, mast, etc) and then it’s impossible to switch, leaving you stuck with the choice you made.
In Reacher 780 we have a modular and versatile platform for both family cruising and performance oriented regatta environments. Our open interior plan allows for different accommodation and comfort combinations giving you the choice to use it as it suits you: 2+2, 1+1+1+1, or something in between. And you don’t have to choose between a racer or a cruiser version, you have both at all times, it's about how you want to use it.
