Rhea 800 Timonier
In the cockpit, the large engine casing gives access to storage lockers as well as the engine itself – all completely perfectly accessible. A second large stern locker has room to stow all the equipment you’ll need. The cockpit’s three folding benches provide comfortable seating for 6 or 8 people.
The deep cockpit, the handrails around the deck-house, the choice of materials used for the generously-proportioned components, and the sturdy, meticulously-finished, high-quality construction is all make for safe cruising.
The hull, designed by marine architects Joubert-Nivelt, guarantees good seaworthiness, excellent handling in choppy seas, excellent course- holding, and terrific stability. Maximum speed is 26 knots. Comfort and safety too from the protected rudder and propeller, safety glass windows, hydraulic helm, 450-litre fuel tank capacity, and the optional propeller access well that allows clearing a rope or net in complete safety. The twin-engined version allows easy beaching on the two keels that protect the propellers and rudders effectively.
The roomy interior accommodation has been designed by Bertrand Danglade.
The forward cabin has a V-shaped double berth, a hanging locker, and various places for stowage. The head has a wash-basin, shower, and sea toilet. A sewage holding tank can be fitted as an option.
The wheelhouse has been fitted out in a very modular way. The helmsman’s seat can be adjusted fore-and-aft. The dinette, seating 5 people easily, converts into either a double berth or a bench seat for the co-helmsman. Lockers under the bench seat and a drawer offer plenty of stowage.
The galley is equipped with a two-burner stove, a 65-litre refrigerator, and a sink with pumped water from a 135-litre fresh-water tank. Cupboards, drawers, and shelves make living aboard practical when cruising.
The very effective ventilation is via 2 sliding doors, one opening light on the port side, and a deck hatch. An optional sliding roof hatch will bring light and extra ventilation to the saloon.
Everything has been designed for enjoyment and efficiency: A very deep cockpit, "walk-around" deck layout, emergency tiller, optional dual controls.All types of fishing are possible in complete safety, everywhere you want to go.
