Nice ketch

New Zealand-based Lloyd Stevenson Boatbuilders preview their new ketch-rigged blue water cruiser known as H239.

Lloyd Stevenson Boatbuilders are proud to announce work has begun on a 24m ketch-rigged blue water cruiser known as H239, from the drawing board of Arnaud Yacht Design.

Intended for long distance sailing to remote locations and high latitudes, the vessel is self-supporting and practical, whilst allowing a good level of comfort and performance, and great safety for a live-aboard owner sailing mostly short-handed. The low-profile overseas owner has a racing background and is excited to work with LSB to create his dream boat. Hull construction is in 6-skin, 50mm thick, cold-moulded Alaskan yellow cedar. LOA: 23.9m, DWL: 22 m, Beam: 5.60 m, Draft: 3.80 m, Displacement: 50 tonnes.

“It’s a perfect project for LSB, we are experienced in this kind of quality construction and the custom nature of the build is our strength. The whole team is excited to begin work” Luke Hill Marketing & People Manager. The Ketch will be Lloyd & Tracey’s 66th custom build and their largest boat to date.
