Rapier 550


Sail Performance





A new look at fast cruising, the 550 brings together an incredible combination of high performance, high specification and radical new design. The 550 is a whole new generation of innovation, beautiful, high performance catamarans with a true racing heritage, giving class-leading performance. Intelligent electronics, navigation and radically simple sail handling come as standard, as do the creative and contemporary luxury interiors.

With its self tacking headsail, powered reversing winches, and all controls at the enclosed helm, the 550 is perfect for single handed or shorthanded sailing. Even with several on board, most neither know how to, or want to, sail the boat. You can relax as the skipper, knowing that you are in control.

The unique one level, one space combined cockpit and saloon gives a vast entertaining and living space – unheard of in a boat of this length. Maximising the saloon width between each hull gives the perfect combination of interior and exterior space, making the 550 useable regardless of weather conditions.
