Yacht description

Specification RC 44

The RC44 is a light displacement, high performance one-design racing yacht. Co-designed by five-time America’s Cup winner Russell Coutts with naval architect Andrej Justin, the boats are strictly identical in terms of construction, shape of hull, appendages and weight/weight distribution, as well as a 50-50 split between amateurs and professionals in each eight-person crew. 
Easy Transport Concept
The specially designed canting trailer, easy detachable stern scoop and simple keel to hull
attachment with a conical joint/coupling makes the boat very easy to transport and store.
The mast is also built in two structural parts making the boat easy to transport on the road with oversize restrictions.
Designer     Russell Coutts /Andrej Justin
Yard Pauger Carbon
Class     RC44
Hull, deck and stern scoop are built in sandwich construction of epoxy resin and exclusively carbon unidirectional and biaxial fabrics, while the twill carbon woven rowing is used to give a smooth and clear, carbon look finish on all external surfaces. The core material is 5-20mm and 75 to 200 k
The internal structure is a double cross frame designed to take all the keel, mast and shroud minimizing the hull and deck stress and deformation. It is built of epoxy resin and exclusively unidirectional and biaxial fabrics, while the twill carbon woven rowing is again used to provide a smooth finish on all visible surfaces.
Female moulds for the hull, deck liner and spoiler are built to extremely high standards to guarantee minimal building tolerances. All composite parts are built according to SPSystem specification, vacuum bagged and postcured in an oven.
  • Rudder and keel prepreg carbon
  • Keel bulb lead with epoxy finish
  • Steering system Jefa
Structural design
The hull, deck, structural liner, keel, rudder and rig were calculated and structurally optimised
Nastran software for the FEM analysis.
