LULWORTH Hakvoort | From EUR€ 54,000.00 /wk
Sailing yacht LULWORTH offers the rare opportunity to experience classic grandeur and class. LULWORTH has a beautifully restored mahogany interior.
For sail lovers, a true emotion will surely arise by stepping on board this Lady full of history, knowing that in the 1920's she competed against the King's yacht BRITANNIA in the Big Class regattas, and even beat SHAMROCK V on four occasions during her final racing season in 1930.
A genuine restoration started in the Classic Darsena Shipyard nearby Viareggio. The yard was established to rebuild the 1939 Feadship IDUNA and its success lead to the new project with LULWORTH. The works started in July 2001; a complete restoration to the original state, using traditional methods. The yacht is a composite of wood and steel. Half the steel frames were restorable, 60 percent of the stingers, over half the floor plates, 70 percent of the interior was saved. Even Honduras mahogany of 14 meters was found for the hull!
Incredible know-how and attention has been dedicated to this superb Classic gaff-rigged super yacht that was launched in February 2006.
Her deck where it is posisble to enjoy Al fresco dining is of course THE place to experience the thrill and delights of sailing such a beauty, feel her speed and power.
Lulworth, one of the most spectacular classic yachts racing today, finalised a programme of sailing in the UK summer including participation in the J. P. Morgan Round the Island Race, Skandia Cowes Week, Cork Week, the British Classic Yacht Regatta and Falmouth Week. Lulworth, designed and built in the UK in 1920 last sailed in England in 1930. Few, we suspect, would have imagined her returning 78 years later looking better than she did when she left!

There will also be a special visit to Lulworth Cove, the current owners of which, the Weld family, were the second owners of the yacht herself in the 1920s when the great gaff cutter raced against the likes of King George V's Britannia, Westward, Shamrock and other examples of the so-called Big Class.
Lulworth, the world's biggest gaff cutter whose Dutch owner Johan van den Bruele completed an award-winning, multi-million euro restoration of the yacht in Italy two years ago, will not be alone in British waters. The superb Bermudan cutter Cambria will be in the UK attending the Fife regatta in Scotland this summer and will join Lulworth, the Nat Herreshoff schooner Mariette and the 19m class gaff cutter Mariquita, restored some years ago by Fairlie Restorations in Hamble, at the regattas on the south coast.
