RENEGADE R5 MKII

Design

The MKII came about after the R6 was drawn and we asked ourselves if we could translate some of what makes the R6 so good into the platform we already have in the R5 MKI. The simple answer was yes, the more complex one was she would need a new hull. 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, although the Mk1 was no slouch in this regard. 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.

Living

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. This allows for just about any graphic design to be printed and applied to these areas. In fact, a supremely cost effective interior refit of the textured surfaces can be pre-cut and couriered to the yacht for quick local application whenever her owners decide they would like to change those features on her interior. She shares the 4 position aft beam/seat/davits with the R6, features very large bunks throughout and includes an overhanging galley counter which allows for a breakfast/bar seating common.

Technology

As previously, we are offering the Mk2 with a full Torqeedo deep blue 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 optional ‘sail by wire’ package takes the previously sublime feeling steering system to another level and adds 2 more outboard seated tiller steering positions, each with remote control of the traveller line driver and trimming winches, creating a full vision one handed sailing experience. The starboard aft cabin on the 3 cabin version is left ‘open’ on purpose as this space can be used for many different things sans the presence of diesel engines.

Performance

We already know what a great performer the Mk1 is, simply put, the Mk2 is just better and we’ve made an already simple and ergonomic sailing cockpit even more user friendly with a larger area featuring seating and all lines under deck.
