A recent model launched in 2019, from the drawing board of Soto Acebal… The Solaris 64 RS represents an extremely innovative yacht in the performance bluewater cruising world, featuring a raised saloon with 360-degree windows for unparalleled panoramic views and a central engine room (which also houses all the main services) with two aft cabins set nicely aft with a companionway thus isolated from any noise from the machinery and systems and giving a greater feeling of privacy.
The innovation begins with the interior layout, which provides a large sail locker in the bow, which can also be specified as an optional en-suite crew cabin. A spacious owner’s cabin forward, with generous storage, available with either an island or an outboard berth. The galley is located close to the mast and extends across the full beam of the boat.
The wide saloon features the companionway offset to starboard, which provides a passageway to the guest cabins and all en-suites have separate full height shower compartments. In terms of size and storage volumes the two guest cabins have nothing to envy to the owner’s cabin forward.
The 3-meter long fore and aft tender garage, with longitudinal access, does not intrude in the aft cabins at all and enables to large lockers with full deck access to port and starboard while the transom also serves as an ample swim platform.
The off-set companionway creates a spacious cockpit with a fixed table to the portside and a deck sofa to starboard side with a passageway in between.
The sail handling area of the cockpit features a central plinth dedicated to the mainsheet and two side winches control lines are located within easy reach of the helm and the signature self-tacking jib makes her easily handled.
Again, with a choice of interior finishes – light oak, teak, washed and antiqued oak, the craftsmanship, attention to detail and quality throughout is as you would expect from Solaris Yachts.
