After recently being declared the overall winner of the America’s Cup Superyacht Regatta, luxury sailing yacht LIONHEART has continued her winning streak and maintained a steady performance to finish three points ahead of her next closest J-Class competitors VELSHEDA and HANUMAN who finished jointly on 14 points.

In the 35th edition of the America’s Cup, the Superyacht Regatta drew more than 20 participants, including J-Class sailing yacht LIONHEART.

Proving her ferocity on the water in both superyacht and J-Class events, this 2010 built Claasen Jachtbouw hull is the first generation of ever-evolving aluminium hulls. At 43m/142ft in length with 17m/56ft of overhang towards the bow and stern, she is the largest J-Class yacht in existence and truly unique in terms of design.

To view S/Y LIONHEART‘s engineering up close, it’s possible to reserve her for week-long periods in the Mediterranean. Featuring a timeless interior last refitted by Pendennis in 2015 and a comfortable and spacious cockpit for alfresco dining in large groups, sailing yacht LIONHEART is as much a stylish charter vessel as a high-performance regatta winner.

Among the J-class participants was another yacht for charter: classic yacht RANGER. Based on the original sailing yacht RANGER built in 1937, Danish Yachts constructed her namesake in 2004 with teak interiors to create a truly classic cruising experience. Able to sleep up to 10 guests over 4 stately cabins, her comfort is matched by her impressive entertainment, providing diving equipment, water skis, and snorkeling equipment as well as Kaleidescape entertainment systems for days packed with enjoyment. Sailing yacht RANGER is available for charter in the Mediterranean from €55,000-€60,000 per week plus expenses.
