New OC 15m blue water cruising yacht starts build

Posted on 25th December 2021

OC are very pleased to announce the commencement of build in February 2022 of their latest blue water cruising yacht design Lynx, at an as of yet undisclosed yard. Over a year in design with her Swiss owner, although already referred to as ‘little Qilak’, she has many unique details specific to her skipper’s exacting requirements after his many years of reviewing boats currently on the market.

Engineered in aluminium with a lifting keel, she is designed for her owner and wife for their retirement dream of a blue water circumnavigation with friends, cruising all the world’s oceans. To support high latitude cruising, including both the North West Passage and the North East Passage (Northern Sea Route) the yacht is ice strengthened, has a significant cruising range under motor and complies with all relevant Arctic and Antarctic codes and regulations.

Lynx’s accomodation consists of two twin berth double cabins aft, along with pullman and pipe cot berths for up to four other guests. A large saloon and galley in the hull are augmented by a comfortable lounging and watchkeeping area in the large deckhouse. This serious blue water cruiser boasts a workshop space, a large foc’sle storage and is the second of our designs to feature a two-person sauna.
