Originally designed for the Ranger syndicate by Starling Burgess and Olin Stephens, superyacht Lionheart was launched in 2010 as the largest J afloat. Lionheart is all aluminium, which is unusual for other Js, and her 17-metre (56 foot) overhang is making her a very special sailing yacht.
NOTABLE FEATURES: ~ One of the most popular racing yachts in the world ~ Superb performance & capabilities ~ Winner of Superyacht Regattas and the J Class Regattas
From the comfort point of view, Hoek Design also gave Lionheart yacht two deckhouses and two cockpits, with one of each reserved for the owner. The owner’s cockpit leads into his suite as well. This method of ensuring privacy is one that Hoek Design has previously engaged aboard yachts like Adele and Athos.
For the racing aspect on the other hand, Hoek Design made sure that the J class super yacht Lionheart would be stiff. She employs horizontal stringers as a result, making her weigh more, however definitely fulfilling the stiffness need. Hoek Design also analyzed the performance of all the J-Class yachts built back in their heyday as well as the newer ones, to analyze what could be achieved with Lionheart superyacht. And, as expected of a proper racer, Hall Spars built the spars, and Harken carbon winches were chosen.
