The 22-meter cruiser/racer sailing yacht Louise was built by Claasen Shipyards.

Berret Racoupeau is responsible for her exterior design and naval architecture. The French design studio gave her a lifting keel with a draft from 2.30 m to 3.90 m to discover the world in shallow waters. LOUISE got the latest marine technology. Rhoades Young Design created her interior.

Built under MCA for yachts up to 24-meters with CE-A certification, she is ready for safety trips like her maiden voyage to Rio de Janeiro.

The owner intended to have a yacht for racing and for cruising as well. The yard constructed the vessel with an aluminum hull and superstructure made of composite. The interior has foam sandwich panels to save some more weight. Furthermore, there are some carbon-fiber parts like the mast and the backstay.
