Ground breaking 15m explorer, Lynx leaves yard

Posted on 13th April 2023

Lynx, our 15m lifting keel high latitude explorer and blue water cruising boat has left cover for the first time for shot-blasting prior to final fit-out.  The aluminium structure and appendages have been built at Koopmans Kosko, Holland and will be fitted out nearby where the process will be project managed by her Swiss owner/skipper.

Lynx represents the latest in small explorer yacht design, aimed specifically at families/small groups for short-handed, fast passages and with the ability to then remain in remote areas without support for prolonged periods,

She is primarily a private yacht yet designed to comply with the MGN 280 code to allow for commercial/charter voyages in all oceans and polar regions. This yacht is the culmination of over a year of combined design effort with her Swiss owner and is already referred to as ‘little Qilak’.

Rigged with a twin spreader Axxon carbon mast the sailplan includes an easy to handle downwind wardrobe, furling/reefing jib and a furling staysail. Analysis over a number of courses indicates an average passage speed greater than 8 kts and an impressive range under motor in excess of 3.000 miles with generous reserve.
