Purchasing a yacht is exiting. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. If you like it, put a ring on it.
Just you, me and the sea
The Truly Classic 65 Rita was built in 1999 by the Dutch shipyard Holland Jachtbouw in the woodcore – composite construction method. This is a strong and light construction method and as maintenance free construction as GRP. She is a very well equipped and specified yacht for shorthanded automated sailing. During the years she has benefited from a series of upgrading and refits that is reflected in her immaculate condition.
The yacht has a 6 cylinder quietly running diesel engine. The yacht is fitted with an aluminium Reckmann boom and hydraulic in-mast furling fully vertically battened mainsail, two furling headsails and an MPS.
The (original) design shows a flush deck with classical details, a classically lined deckhouse, a nice sheer, spoon bow and a long transom overhang. The deckhouse and the two guest cabins in the aft are laid out in such a way that optimal use of the available space is achieved. The deckhouse includes a navigation station, a settee and a wet locker. One of the big advantages of the concept of this yacht is that the yacht can be navigated from the deckhouse and at the same time this area can be used as social area for a drink or a dinner, enabling a clear view outside. The interior shows an open plan salon and forward of the mast bulkhead an owner’s cabin. The Truly Classic designs have classic and timeless design combined with an underwater design and sail plan which has been extensively optimized to a modern configuration by for example a so called velocity prediction program in which keel, rudder and sailing performances are optimized.
