Claasen Jachtbouw in Zaandam have recently launched the J-Class Lionheart. William Bishop of Yachting Partners International and Hoek Brokerage jointly list her for sale. Lionheart is the first of a new breed of aluminium J-Class yachts from the boards of Hoek Design in the Netherlands. She will be the largest J in existence when delivered. Tremendous 17-metre overhangs on a LOA of 44 metres have created a fascinating super J.
Lionheart is designed for cruising as well as racing, and is therefore being built to MCA Classification. No expense has been spared to ensure that she is competitive on the race course, utilizing Hall Spars vast experience to build the spars, and Harkens race proven carbon winches.
From a cruising standpoint Lionheart incorporates two small deckhouses and two small cockpits for the owner and his/her guests, a unique feature which will provide added versatility to the use of the superyacht, whether racing or cruising.
Lionheart has an asking price of EU 14,900,000.
