SY Heureka was launched during the Summer of 2014 for an owner wanting fast passage times and a rewarding to sail.
This was not the only requirement in the design brief of this beautifully built yacht. She had to be sleek, visually striking and with a clean and uncluttered deck. Meticulous design detailing can be seen in abundance; the recessed chainplates and the headsail furlers, the recessed blade and genoa tracks, the hidden hydraulic backstay cylinders, the oval closed fairleads and the retracting superstructure coaming doors to name a few. Ironically, we decided to keep the mast drum winches on deck, as the practicalities outweighed the aesthetics of recessing them in a winch pit.
