This new EUPHORIA model is an evolution of the smaller 54 foot sloop currently under production. She has been planned in advance to represent a new logical step in displacement, interior volume and performance from the well proven 54.
The hull follows a similar concept of her smaller sister, although this time and, in view of the larger size, we have decided on a twin rudder configuration in combination with a standard deep keel, plus a fixed shallow draft option. The hull is powerful and the displacement distributed along a full length waterline, resulting in a fast, comfortable, sea kindly yacht.
Half a dozen options of the three cabins plus crew interior layouts developed by Design Unlimited are offered, both with the Owner's cabin aft or forward. The semi-raised main saloon is very ample and well connected to the cockpit. Side hull windows provide natural light to all cabins.
The deck layout is clean and simple with a relatively short superstructure, large flat surfaces forward of the mast, very large cockpit including a permanent table and easily accessible winches for sail control. The aft part of the cockpit opens to the sea as a bathing platform which has access to the lazzarette and dinghy storage area.
The rig is modern and efficient, with a triple set of swept back spreaders on a carbon fiber mast and boom. A hydraulic roller furling boom option would be available for ease of handling and reefing.
A 160 hp will propel the 68 at a speed in excess of ten knot. A diesel generator is located amidships in the engine compartment.
