Custom Built in 2007 by McConaghy Yachts, Rima2 is a near sister ship to the Australian racer "Wedgetail" (formerly YENDYS), built just months before. Rima2 is slightly different in its hull and rig design, to favor the moderate conditions of the Northeast USA to provide a more powerful platform. The design brief called for a powerful and fast IRC design capable of competing against TP52’s inshore buoy racing yet strong enough to handle the most grueling offshore events. With a more offshore focus, interior volume and headroom were high on the list of priorities. Compared to a TP52, Rima2 offers a considerable interior living space, full-sized bunks, a complete and proper Nav. Station and far greater hull and deck strength.
Rima2 features a high stability keel and bulb; over 50% ballast/displacement ratio. The high modulus carbon rig and composite C6 rigging adds greatly to the stability of this design. Rima2 is a powerful design capable of strong upwind performance in the 9+ knot range and even more exciting downwind rides at well over 20 knots.

Rima2 has been measured and rated to compete under IRC, ORR, HPR and ORCi. Rating Certificates are available.

Rima2 was built using Pre-Preg carbon fiber with Nomex core and high-density PVC foam core in the slamming areas. The construction of this yacht was focused around extensive offshore sailing; durability was of paramount concern. The composite materials utilized in construction are nearly twice that of a Med Cup TP52. Rima2 features large beam structural supports throughout the hull and deck. This boat was engineered to handle the toughest environments, with full structural engineering provided by SP Systems.
In 2012 Reichel Pugh designed a new fabricated steel keel fin, increasing the draft nearly 2'. The fin was moved aft slightly to improve balance. The keel bulb was re-milled to make it smaller and lighter and the bulb was shifted forward on the keel fin to maintain fore and aft trim. This reduced the displacement by about 2,000 lbs. allowing the boat to sit higher on the waterline while maintain roughly the same righting moment. Rima2 now accelerates much quicker and and planes more easily downwind.
Designed for offshore racing, Rima2 has a comfortable race boat interior with sufficient room at storage for Ocean Racing.
The galley is set to starboard with a large refrigerated ice-chest to port, with port and starboard storage lockers just above. A large sink is on center-line atop the engine box and under the companionway.
The main salon features port and starboard upper and lower hinged bunks with storage below and soft storage zipper bags above.
Forward there is a large enclosed marine head to starboard with line storage to port. The bow section is open for sail storage and lined with loops for foul weather gear / Life-sling storage.
Aft of the companionway, port and starboard are additional upper and lower hinged bunks with storage under. The Nav Station is forward facing aft on center-line under the cockpit. Storage is provided under the hard bunks with additional storage lockers and bins.
