From the drawing board of the ever successful team at Reichel-Pugh, Scarlet Runner was launched in July 2009 for a hugely experienced Australian owner who wanted a boat capable of inshore and offshore success, with a performance to rival the TP52's, but which included a usable interior. These specific requirements were met in abundance with the help of Composite Constructions who led the build, with vastly experienced Americas Cup builders on the team.She's a turn key package, ready to continue collecting silver wear as she did in the Hobart race 2015.Inventory

Scarlet Runner's owner was very clear about the build and design of his new boatr. He commissioned Steve Campbell's, Composites Constructions to build the boat in collaboration with the Reichel-Pugh team.
Steve has been building boats for over 20 years with involvement in the 1988 Sydney to Hobart winner Illusion, as well as Ultimate Challenge and Morning Mist. In the AC world, he was there to build, maintain, train and test on Nippon Challenge and America One. At the CC Braeside facility, the small, but dedicated team are deeply involved in the development of marine, aeronautical and automotive equipment.
Special Patterns created her CNC finished, steel, foam and glass female mould. All of which means it can be used again. This meant that the most accurate build techniques could be used and the final boat could be removed from the mould with little to no fairing needed, so there is a weight saving there of 60 to 80kg.
Pre-preg Carbon over core cell foam was chosen because it is lighter in the end than a wet lay-up, say around a 100kg saving for a boat this size, and it ensures you get the 35-42% resin-to-fibre ratio required for ultimate strength. It does add 10-15% to the build cost. Best news of all is that Scarlet Runner is dimensionally true and barely a couple of millimetres away from the RP drawings that were supplied. Each fibre batch and cooking time has been logged for future reference and quality control by the CCs data tracker.Machinery
