The flagship of the Black Pepper fleet, the Code 2 is the result of a design collaboration between Marc Lombard and
Armel Tripon (winner of Route de Rhum 2018, and IMOCA 60 racer) to design an IMOCA 60 inspired offshore speed
machine equally at home racing as she is to very fast cruising. Constructed in full carbon fiber with Axxon carbon rig, twin rudders, centerboard and water ballast, she is perfectly configured for
racing and cruising duties alike.
A real gem of a yacht, built by expert composite craftsmen.

Builder’s comment:
Flagship of the Fleet; this beautiful unit is part of the very exclusive spirit of "Codes" by Black Pepper®; inspired by the latest generation hulls - oceanic racers Imoca 60 - it is intended for offshore travel and racing. Its silhouette and its charm result from the alliance of old and modern lines, the original signature of Black Pepper® (doghouse, teak deck, etc).
On board nothing is left to chance: ergonomics, maneuverability, equipment and luxurious materials, living space, cabins, bathrooms, garage annex, cockpit lounge, everything is designed to ensure owners, comfort, safety and autonomy.

Broker Comments

Press review - Toby Hodges – Yachting World – June 2015“Match a spicy, aesthetics-led brand with a gifted designer and the result is this sensationally cool Black Pepper Code 2 60-footer. Although she may not offer the minimalist, go-anywhere prospect of a Django or Pogo, Black Pepper’s latest creation is still a fast lift-keel cruiser. And she has more than her fair share of sheer panache. Like the smaller yachts in the Black Pepper range, the Code 2 uses a traditional-style doghouse and teak decks blended with a very modern, beamy hull shape to arresting effect. The slight reverse sheer appeals particularly – this is fast becoming a signature look for designer Marc Lombard.Despite her high-end luxury daysailer appearance, Michel Douville de Franssu of Black Pepper Yachts thinks clients will be most interested in offshore racing. Black Pepper’s range is built in Nantes. The Code 2 is made in carbon epoxy sandwich and weighs around 10 tons.Her 4.6m lifting keel helps provide the deep draught needed to support minimum 410m2 of downwind sail area – plus there is 1,500lt of water ballast each side (the equivalent of having a rugby team on the rail). Like the other French designs shown, sheets are led to inboard winches, abaft the cockpit benches. So beamy is the Code 2 in the after sections that the central area between the rudder stocks lifts like the boot of a car to reveal a tender garage below. Below decks she looks every bit the luxury cruiser, including, notably, four heads.”
