Design Brief

The Santa Cruz 70, opened up a new level of High Speed sailing and brought new meaning forever to the concept of "Line Honors".

High speed sailing, in control, in comfort, and getting there first is where the rush and the action is. Especially when you also have to save your time on the slower, less comfortable, less exciting yachts who may finish the next day, or so!

Bill Lee took all of the fast things he knew about performance and blended them as gracefully as possible to meet the requirements of the rating rule at the time without sacrificing speed and maximum power to carry sail area and minimum wetted surface.

Just add water for years the Santa Cruz 70 has set the standard for offshore racing yachts. Heavy wind, light wind, upwind, and of course, down wind, these flyers easily do a horizon job on what used to be thought of as fast yachts. 

In case you don't race all the time, a Santa Cruz 70 is still just what you need for high performance cruising.  High speed under power, maximum passage making under sail, lots of room down below, and good freeboard to keep you dry, make the Santa Cruz 70 the all around super yacht.
