It was 1997 when we penned the lines for the Chincogan 52 and Pete Coram's team set to work to build the tooling in a factory adjacent to the cane fields in Northern NSW, Australia.

First boat out of the Factory was Julian Way's Catchus which quickly demonstrated a penchant for the open ocean, effortlessly eating up the miles and serving as a highly amenable retreat on mutliple forays into exotic locations in Asian and Western Pacific waters.

Chincogan 52 is no longer in production but examples are keenly sought after and several of the 52's have been or are currently being refitted for extended cruising including at least two circumnavigations that we know of.

 

Raku 52 borrows a lot of her DNA from the Chincogan, but also incorporates new features and we expect the new design to carry the Chincogan spirit well into the future.
