Seller Note

“KATSU” the Reichel Pugh 45 is now for sale.

Built in 2011, she offers a huge amount of potential on the race track, whilst not overly-compromising on comfort below decks.
Great successes under ORC and IRC, she is a potent weapon offshore and is a much more forgiving platform, that is far more manageable compared to the newest breed of flyers on the market.
Lots of 2018 upgrades – really a strong all round package!
