For the sailor interested an elegant platform that can do it all, Le rêve, overall winner of the prestigious 2018 Swiftsure International Yacht Race, is truly “the dream.” Today we often think there are cruising sailboats and racing sailboats, with no crossover between the two, however Le rêve has proven this wrong. The caring and attentive owner specified tasteful performance optimizations without inhibiting her cruising capability or comfort, and the result has been victories. These optimizations include a complete North Sails sail inventory and upgraded running rigging and systems. When the racing is over, Le rêve is quickly converted back into her cruising form, with all the cruising equipment that enables simple, safe and comfortable cruising. She features the desirable three-stateroom/two-head layout, each with separate shower stalls. Her light oak interior with beautifully contrasting blue upholstery is modern and bright. The large cockpit is protected with a custom dodger, bimini, connector panel and enclosure (mesh) by Iverson’s Design and her sails quickly deployed via her in-mast mainsail furler and headsail furler, both assisted by power winches.
