Standard Specifications:


The Pacer 376 R is built in accordance with CE-Certification and meets the requirement for Cat A (ocean) for recreational craft.


The Hull is built using vacuum bagged hand lay-up before the hardening process starts, and is post cured after it has left the mould. The laminated construction consists of hydrolysis - proof epoxy resin, multidirectional fabrics and foam as sandwich material. Internally the laminate is sealed using topcoat. No Gelcoat – Painted Finishes.


The Deck and Hull are bonded together using epoxy, providing a neat joint. The laminated construction consists of hydrolysis-proof epoxy resin, multidirectional fabrics and predominantly foam core with end-grain balsa used in certain areas.

All deckfittings have Aluminium reinforcements laminated into the deck.
The Pacer 376 R offers a factory developed non-skid surface.


Stainless steel Pushpits and Pulpit are fitted, together with 610mm stainless steel stanchions with two safety wires, the bottom-most raised slightly to aid hiking. Aft positioned stanchions are braced for hiking.


The deck has an integrated toe rail extending from bow to mast.


The Pacer 376 R offers a ‘racey’ interior finish with structural integrity assured via lightweight epoxy composite bulkheads, doors and floors, each bonded to hull and deck. The cabinetry is of the highest quality ‘steamed Beech’ with a matt protector finish. There is a good balance between functionality and aesthetics. Hull liners are replaced with aesthetically acceptable satin finishes.

The washboards consist of a two-piece translucent removable system, which when in place locks to the translucent sliding cover. A stainless steel sill protector leads you down the ladder/stairs which are integrated into the engine cover.

Engine Cover:
Lightweight Epoxy moulded unit with sound damping, fixes to rear bulkhead, light and easily removable for excellent access to the engine.

Aft Cabins:
Both cabins offer lightweight double berths. Lighting is in the form of bulkhead adjustable spots for reading. High density Mattresses are covered in removable wear resistant fabric.
Natural light and fresh air is accessible through a port light which opens to the cockpit.

Positioned on Port at the foot of the companionway, the redesigned linear Galley is fitted with a single deep stainless steel sink, pressurized cold water with faucet as standard and hot and cold as an upgrade. Cold Box or Fridge is optional. The worktop is finished in an attractive light-weight material. A 2 plate, semi-gimbaled, stove (no oven), is fitted as standard.

The Pacer 376 R offers a fully race-optimised deep draft keel (2.6m) consisting of a combination of welded steel plates forming a foil – encapsulated in GRP to give a perfect profile, with a cast antimony hardened lead bulb. The low centre of gravity keel is fastened to the hull recess by a series of stainless steel bolts with loads being distributed via the floor beams evenly through the laminate construction of the hull.


The non standard race developed elliptical balance rudder has a shaft of sea-water resistant stainless steel with an integrated high-strength framework within the GRP foil shape. Self-aligning rudder needle bearings provide the lowest possible friction and ultimate control for the helmsman.

The steering system is ‘Jefa’ type, consisting of a quadrant connected to the shaft, with the gearing offering responsive steering by way of the ‘Jefa’ style 1700mm diameter wheel.
