The Truly Classic 65 Rita was built in 1999 by Holland Jachtbouw in the wood core composite construction method. This is a strong and light construction method and as maintenance free construction as GRP. She is a very well equipped and specified yacht for shorthanded automated sailing. During the years she has benefited from a series of upgrading and refits which is reflected in her immaculate condition
The yacht has 6 cylinder very quietly running 190 HP Steyer engine. Moreover the yacht comes with a complete w set of B+G instruments. The yacht is fitted with an aluminium Reckmann boom and hydraulic in mast furling fully vertically battened mainsail, two furling headsails and an MPS.
The (original) design shows a flush deck with classical details, a classically lined deckhouse, a nice sheer, spoon bow and a long transom overhang. The deckhouse and the two guest cabins in the aft ship are laid out in such a way that optimal use of the available space is achieved. The deckhouse includes a navigation station, a settee and a wet locker. One of the big advantages of the concept of this yacht is that the yacht can be navigated from the deckhouse and at the same time this area can be used as social area for a drink or a meal, enabling a clear view outside. The interior shows an open plan saloon and forward of the mast bulkhead an owner’s cabin. The Truly Classic designs have classic and timeless design combined with an underwater design and sail plan which has been extensively optimised to a modern configuration by for example a so called velocity prediction programs in which keel, rudder and sailing performances are optimised.
