Interparus in touch! We have found an interesting boat for travel, which will expand the horizons of the yachtsman. Apparently, the creators of the yacht decided to present a boat that can show itself perfectly both in the hot tropics and in the harsh conditions of the north.
The 15m Lynx by Owen Clarke is an aluminum expedition yacht with a lifting keel. Among its main features are increased impact resistance of the hull and high cross-country ability.
The average speed is also on the level. Under sail can reach more than 8 knots. At the same time, the yacht has enough diesel fuel to cover 3,000 miles with a large margin. Agree, the result is worthy. A large supply of fuel will also allow the vessel not to suffer from a lack of speed in light winds or calm. So the boat will be able to reach its destination on time.
The ship's hull has a large width at the stern, double rudders and helms, as well as a fairly impressive forecastle. Another feature of the boat is the ⅞ rig. On board there is a whole set of staysails for all occasions.
Idea and concept
For sleep and rest there are two double aft cabins. There is also a spacious galley to port and a saloon. The cabin can accommodate four more people.
The place in front of the main bulkhead is equipped with a workshop and an extensive pantry. The result is an interesting interior arrangement that is uniquely different from standard charter yachts. The reason for this is in the specifics of using the yacht.
According to the initial idea of the customer, the yacht should be managed by a minimum number of crew. Ideally, only the customer and partner. Plus, the boat must have high autonomy and the ability to do without calls to ports and marinas for a long time. The result of Owen Clarke's work was the Lynx yacht.
The reason for this not the most standard layout was also the ideas of the customer. The salon is moved forward, the cabins are at the stern, and the workshop and pantry are located closer to the forecastle.
Though conceived as a private yacht, the Lynx is one of the few boats of this size that fully complies with MGN 280 standards for commercial/charter sailing in all oceans and polar regions. The construction of this yacht began in February this year at the shipyard Koopmans Kasko in North Holland.
