THE VAAN R5
R5 is the perfect size for extended blue water cruising or a family live-aboard. Of course, like the R4, the R5 is made of truly sustainable and circular materials such as recycled aluminium, FSC certified cork decking, recycled fabrics. And of course it is all-electric too.
GO THE DISTANCE
At 49ft the Vaan R5 really goes the distance. A luxury platform to explore the most distant places and faraway islands. A spacious sailing machine for couples to large families. And like every Vaan it is made of circular materials and almost entirely recyclable. A true testament to the Vaan mission: Sail the Planet.
The open spaciousness of the R5 transforms this sailing cat into your penthouse on the water. Even with a family of six you can spend a year exploring the planet. The kitchen has all the features you find at home and the couch is large and soft.
A TRUE BATHROOM
The forward cabin in the owners hull holds a superior bathroom with a spacious shower. The mirror slides sideways to open a cabinet and three large drawers and shelves give you all the storage you need.
HOME AWAY FROM HOME
In the evening, when lights are dimming, the saloon provides a spectacular view of the surroundings. The wrap-around windows give a great sense of freedom and transparency, with all the coziness you want from a home.
THE R5 LA: THE LUXURY LIVE-ABOARD
With the sliding glass door moved further aft, part of the cockpit becomes part of the interior space creating a 30m2 saloon area. The sliding doors and sliding side windows can be opened to be ‘outside’, or closed to be ‘inside’ the spacious saloon.
No flapping tents, zippers and view distorting plastic but crystal clear floor-to-ceiling glass all the way around. For different parts of the world or sudden weather changes, the R5 LA offers the best of all worlds.
The R5 comes in two versions: the open cockpit and the closed cockpit live-aboard version, the R5-LA. The main difference is the sliding door that is placed further aft in the LA version. While this may seem minor, it creates a vast interior saloon space that allows for truly unique layout options which can be tailored to your needs.
