The latest collaboration between G-Force Yachts and Reichel/Pugh Yacht Design is the
fast and fun X-Treme 32 - A high performance design for inshore and offshore racing.
The briefing to the Reichel/Pugh team was to develop a flat-out racer that delivers the
thrill of a high-performance design as well as the ability to capture podium positions.
The X-Treme 32 hull form is honed to deliver performance across a wide wind range. The
hull lines minimize wetted surface in low-heel situations but maximize hull form stability
when heeled. The maximum beam is carried well aft at the deck to insure crew weight is
as far outboard as possible, providing maximum stability and straight heeled waterlines.
The deck geometry and hardware layout is optimized for efficient crew work while
keeping windage to a minimum. Controls for the main trimmer are led to the cockpit
floor centerline, just forward of tiller. Backstay winches are angled inboard to allow the
crew to trim the backstay with feet outboard hiking. The cabin geometry allows for
optimized jib trimming at narrow lead angles. The slightly raised companionway houses
an oversized hatch to allow for easy movement of sails to and from below decks, and
conceals underdeck runs for halyards and controls lines from the mast and foredeck. The
foredeck hatch has a soft rounded edge to facilitate smooth takedowns with an
integrated line system for dousing spinnakers.
X-Treme 32 construction complies with the CE category A regulations. It is delivered with
a 13,6 hp Yanmar inboard diesel engine and easily removable keel, making delivery
around the world by open top container an easy choice.
