If you have any questions about the LION NEW ZEALAND information page below please contact us.

Built by Whitbread in 1985 for Sir Peter Blake, sailing yacht LION NEW ZEALAND boasts a design by Ron Holland and a history of world-wide cruising - she took part in the 1985/86 Whitbread Round The World Race. She was purchased by the NZ Sailing Trust and gives sailing experiences to young New Zealanders. She underwent a two-year multi-million dollar refit at Yachting Developments ending in 2019 that has given her a new interior and a lighter, faster and more efficient hull.

The accommodation sleeps up to 22 guests over 11 bunk cabins and during the day up to 40 guests can stay on board.

"I’d say I was a sailor before a designer. My designing was influenced by my experiences. It doesn’t have to be that way, but it was with me. Becoming a designer wasn’t a strategic decision." - Ron Holland, founder of Ron Holland Design
