The original R5 series and has proven to be a very capable bluewater cruiser. A lot of care and consideration was taken in her development and construction with an emphasis on versatility, large social areas, ease of handling, performance, rigidity, and style.

The new R5MKII now incorporates a lot of the new design features of the R6 which elevates this series to new heights.

Our goal was then to retain what makes the R5 such a comfortable and easy to handle offshore performance yacht and add more of the finishing trims and hull volumes that people expect in a modern performance liveaboard. To that end, she features a redesigned hull that is slightly wider, slightly longer, and allows her to carry a little more in the way of creature comforts. Her engineering has been completely redone and the platform now features full carbon construction for all of the full-width bulkheads as standard with all components vacuum infused for optimum weight and structure integrity control.


The additional hull volume and the new R6 inspired coachroof allow for the MKII to feature a similar ultra-versatile 3 or 4 cabin layout to the majestic R6. She retains the MKI’s large saloon but gains better visibility and headroom along with an opening helm window and twin sliding roof hatches above the helm as found on the R6.


 Her internal finishing utilises natural timbers clad over foam cored structure as well as synthetic textured surfaces bonded on to PVC substrates. She shares the R6 Davit System, features very large bunks throughout and includes an overhanging galley counter which allows for a breakfast/bar seating common. This series also features a host of amenities that can be tailored to your needs including Induction cooktops, electric oven, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and many more.

The R5 was developed to take full advantage of electrical propulsion systems which have proved to be popular in this series.

As previously, we are offering the Mk2 with a full Electric propulsion system as standard and the design has been further refined to be built around electric propulsion, however, there is a traditional diesel option available.

The Propulsion system is powered by high voltage lithium batters which can be replenished by a large solar array, hydro regeneration, rapid shore charging or range extending generator.

The additional capacity allows for the use of induction cooktop, electric oven, electric water heater and all round better electrical load management.

This series comes standard again with a Fully integrated B&G sailing package and a host or other creature comforts.

For a additional control, a CZONE Digital switching system can be installed as well as the “sail by wire” system, as found standard with the R6 series.


The performance of the R5 speaks for itself where she comfortably achieves 200 miles per day without generating high loads which causes breakages. She covers distances effortlessly, but can also be dialled up to reward sailors with an exhilarating ride when required. Her sailing cockpit is a safe and secure sail handling area optimised for single-handing with all sail controls in one location and includes an electric line driver (used on all the R line yachts) to control the mainsheet traveler.

This series includes a Sparcraft Aluminium spars package consisting of mast, boom, longeron and crossbeams and is complemented with a set of performance Ulman sails. In addition, her light weight construction and large daggerboards ensure that achieving close to windspeed is easily achievable.
