Red Dragon is a 52m (171ft) performance cruising sloop designed and built for discerning European owners. The brief required a stylish yacht capable of fast passages and long periods of autonomy with a contemporary, bright interior.
Inside and out, the Red Dragon project redefines the marque. The lines are clean and modern, with a near plumb bow, subtle sheer, low-profile coachroof and an extended aft deck flowing back to an elegant transom that slopes down to just above the waterline. The line of the coachroof extends into a long overhang floating virtually unsupported over the aft cockpit.
The hull is finished in anthracite grey with a snow white superstructure. A vivid red covestripe provides a handsome accent against the dark hull and establishes a theme repeated on the boom.
The dark windows of the coachroof wrap all the way around in an unbroken sweep of curved glass. The large aft cockpit side windows slide up and down at the touch of a button to allow the breeze to waft through, or provide protection from the elements as required.
