PREVIEW Reacher 780, the racer cruiser with asymmetrical deckhouse entry

After a year of design and development, the new Croatian shipyard Reacher has unveiled renderings of its first boat, the Reacher 780
, a small performance cruiser suitable for both racing and weekend cruising. This is a boat that aims to replace the Express, X-79 and other hulls under eight meters, a size for which there is still much demand (just look at the success of the minialtura and the numbers, in proportion to the number of entries, of small boats at the various winter championships).


The first Reacher 780 is expected to be launched at the end of the year, while mass production should be started in the following months so that the first deliveries can be completed as early as next summer. The boat will be built in Croatia using the vacuum infusion process with epoxy and carbon reinforcements. The shipyard aims to have a hull that is easy to use, fast, trailerable, and can provide good comfort (camping-style) for four people. Designed by Andrej Justin, the boat features modern, clean lines, an open cockpit, asymmetrical deckhouse entry, and upside-down foredeck. VPP (Velocity Prediction Programs) in hand, the Reacher 780 should be able to reach 15 knots in glide, and speeds in the double digits should still be within reach. The lifting keel reduces draft by up to 0.5 m, maximum beam is 2.54 and displacement is 1,150 kg. Below deck we play on “portable” solutions (such as the galley), and the night layout includes either four single berths (ideal for racing) or two doubles: in each case the beds are longer than two meters. The price, excluding VAT, is 38,990 euros.
