Performance - Excellent sail inventory.  Winning Record.


Fresh Engine with ZERO HOURS as of 2/1/13

The Santa Cruz 52 has been designed to be fast, not according to some race handicap rule, but just plain fast! The SC52 has a powerful sail plan, but its light displacement results in lower loads. Lower loads, lighter sails and the SC52 deck layout mean high performance can be achieved by both short-handed cruisers and full racing crews. Both conventional and asymmetrical spinnakers are available. A unique, dual-purpose, deck-mounted spinnaker pole serves as a retractable 7-foot sprit enabling easy use of a very powerful asymmetrical spinnaker, further enhancing short-handed cruising. he SC52 moves well in light air, but if the wind dies, you will cruise at 9 knots with its 62 hp Yanmar diesel.

 In addition to terrific cruising performance, the SC52 wins races, both first-to-finish and handicap (IMS, PHRF, or whatever is next), and has compiled an extremely successful race record (summary available). Most of these races have been won with a full cruising interior, demonstrating the SC52 may be the only true dual purpose racer/cruiser available.

The Santa Cruz 52 is designed and engineered to be very strong with specifications well in excess of ABS Standards. Advanced technology has enabled designers and builders to produce yachts which are both strong and light so it is no longer necessary to equate strength with weight. Every piece of furniture, every panel, every cabinet is fully and carefully bonded to the hull and deck, providing an integrated hull support structure. The forward section of the hull includes a kevlar collision mat and a watertight bulkhead.

Other features add to the safety of the SC52. The IMS Stability Index of 121 indicates this is a very stable and safe yacht. The large cockpit is secure, with substantial coamings, easy access through the companionway and drains very rapidly through the open transom. The SC52 is organized so it can be sailed from the safety of the cockpit. The SC52’s speed and short-handed capability are also important safety characteristics.

The Santa Cruz 52 will not only get you there quickly and safely, you will be able to enjoy the comforts of a luxury cruising yacht both on passage and in the harbor.

The SC52’s spacious, well thought-out interior has two large private staterooms each with double berths. You will find a separate stall shower in one of the two heads. The large salon provides dining for 7 and includes 2 roomy pilot berths. There is ample storage throughout the cabins. The teak and holly cabin sole, solid teak trim, and white-accented paneling combine to produce a warm but light and airy environment.
