Zurn Yacht Design unveiled a 52-foot concept sailboat that was developed as an offshore-capable fast cruiser for a couple or small family.

The signature sweeping sheer provides for dry performance through waves and the boat’s large main sail and small jib will facilitate single-handed sailing. An optional self-tacking jib is easy to operate and the retractable sprit gives the boat good off-wind speed with a large asymmetrical spinnaker flying from the extended pole. The dual-helm layout and low coach roof provide good visibility and passage to the opening transom is open and unencumbered. All sheets lead to the helm station for short-handed sailing ease.

“This yacht is designed to sail, and sail well, with little stress to boat and crew,” Zurn Yacht Design president Doug Zurn said in a statement. “Belowdecks she will encase the crew in comfort, functionality and the ability to customize to great extent. She’s a sailor’s yacht.”

Belowdecks, the Doug Zurn 52 concept is set up for two cabins with a large forward stateroom with a pullman double berth and head with a separate shower. Aft to starboard is a double-berth quarter cabin. The galley can be configured as an L-shape with a forward settee or it can be positioned to starboard with a larger settee to port. The second head is aft to port and would be the day facilities.
