model extends the range to support sailors who want the ability to sail into
shallow or tidal areas and even beach the yacht on the sand between tides.
Also, with its easy-to-operate folding mast, it is ideally suited to sailing
in rivers and lakes, where boats are otherwise restricted by low bridges.
This model can even be configured for towing so that the yacht can easily
be transported from one cruising area to another by road. Additionally, these
lift keel cruisers can be stored on a trailer, and launched / recovered after
each trip, thereby significantly reducing berthing costs and also antifouling
These yachts benefit from the same hull as the rest of the range and are tiller
steered. The lift keel is a fully profiled keel, ensuring that no hydrodynamic
efficiency is lost over the fixed keel model. They are available with an inboard
14hp diesel or an outboard engine.
As with the fixed keel cruiser, all of the sail controls and lines are led
aft into the cockpit, making the yacht very easy to sail. The cabins are spacious
and luxurious and, as with the other models in the range, you can custimise
the yacht to your taste including a choice of hull colour and wood type.
