TP52 Racing Yacht
March of 2010 saw the latest project to leave the Salthouse yard - TEAMORIGIN's TP52, designed by Juan Kouyoumdjian.
Due to the introduction of a new TP52 class rule, time was tight when Team Director Mike Sanderson came to Salthouse Boatbuilders with the exciting design from Juan Yacht Design.

'The building schedule was tight enough to scare even the most optimistic among us', recalls Director of Salthouse Boatbuilders, Greg Salthouse. 'However we saw the challenge as one not to be missed.'

It was therefore hugely rewarding to see the boat go into the water several days ahead of plan as well as under budget and meeting design weight. The valuable extra time allowed TEAMORIGIN's sailing crew to test the boat over several days before shipping to Europe for the Audi Med Cup Series.

Greg Salthouse says the new Germansky Lloyd (GL) requirements have created an extra dimension of difficulty in building high performance race boats, due to the fact that additional structural systems need to be incorporated in the new designs. With some of these new rules being learned during the build process, it was crucial that the communication between the Juan Yacht Design's office, TEAMORIGIN andSalthouse Boatbuilders ran smoothly. It is in this area of communication and management that Salthouse Boatbuilders are carving a reputation as a yard that provides a seamless service to clients.
“ When TEAMORIGIN decided to do the 2010 TP52 season we were very short of time, the new class rule was only finalised in late 2009 and we had to have a boat sailing in Europe by April 2010!!

In that time we had to design, build and ship the boat. To make that happen we needed a boat yard that was going to be flexible enough to work with us and enable us to design the boat as it was being built!!  

The result from Salthouse Boatbuilders was outstanding. Our new TP52 is beautifully built, down to design weight, ahead of schedule and under budget!!  What more could we possibly ask for? We went to Salthouse Boatbuilders because we trusted that even with the huge time restraints, Greg and his team would go that extra distance to really give us a special boat, from all of us here at TEAMORIGIN to everyone at Salthouse Boatbuilders, Thank you!! ”
