Rob Doyle Design Unveils Café Racer/ Bucket Performance Sloop

Rob Doyle Design one of the new generation of yacht designers rising to the modern challenges of the large yacht business has unveiled a new 36m Sailing Yacht concept aimed at the ever expanding enjoyment of Bucket racing.

The term Café Racer comes from motorcycles modified for speed rather that comfort. The same concept has been applied to this new 120ft Bucket Racer to give high levels of performance while keeping the interior clean, simple and without the extreme weight penalty that the current crop of bucket yachts carry.
Featuring a high tech composite hull, powerful hull lines harness the power of a very effective and easy to handle sail plan. The sleek clean deck appearance with retro classic styling cues gives a fresh view of a high performance Bucket Racer.
The yacht boasts the latest in hull shapes and appendages package but is designed mindful of the need to be a good all-rounder with ease of use for friends and family. With the addition of twin rudders, power and controls are beautifully balanced, allowing the owner to really lean on this yacht to produce blistering results.
The design is built on 20 years of experience in the field of large yachts offering performance and safety.
In September 2012, Rob formed his own company, Rob Doyle Design Ltd., branching out from Ron Holland Design and developing his own clients and projects.
Both his own firm and Ron Holland Design will continue to collaborate on future projects.
