Lionheart | Claasen Shipyards

http://claasenshipyards.com/yacht/lionheart/

Saved by uncleflo on February 23rd, 2019.

Lionheart is designed for cruising as well as racing, and is therefore built to MCA. No expense has been spared to ensure that she is competitive on the race course, and her performance has been optimised by a design that incorporates research done on previous J-class yachts.  Lionheart’s hull is built in high tensile Alustar plating and extrusion materials, and she employs longitudinal stringers to ensure maximum stiffness. Tremendous 17-metre overhangs lend Lionheart a striking appearance. She features two deckhouses and two cockpits, with one of each reserved for the owner, and the owners’ cockpit linked to their suite for maximum privacy.

F-Class « YachtWorld UK

Saved by uncleflo on February 23rd, 2019.

A well-designed sailing yacht is a thing of pure beauty, here are just 10 of the world’s finest… in my eyes at least! Velsheda
When she was launched in 1933, the J-Class yacht Velsheda represented the cutting edge of technology and sophistication and won races against all the great yachts of her day. However, she only was only used for three seasons and after World War 2 it looked as though none of these great yachts would ever sail again. King George V’s Britannia had already been scuttled south of the Isle of Wight, and Velsheda became a houseboat, firmly embedded into the River Hamble Mud for almost 50 years. In the 1970s she was saved from being cut up for scrap after being bought by a group of enthusiasts led by Bembridge bank manager Royce Pook. She then became the first of the class to be restored – in near original specification – thanks to Yorkshire scrap metal merchant Terry Brabant who bought her in 1984. Further refits after Brabant’s ownership saw her refurbished into the spectacular luxury yacht we see today.

The J Class Association

https://www.jclassyachts.com/class

Saved by uncleflo on February 23rd, 2019.

The J Class Association (JCA) was founded to protect the interests of the Class, present and future. To keep the J-Class fleet and races alive and to encourage new build yachts to enter the field, new Class rules were established for the construction of Replica Rebuilds from original plans. One of the key drivers of the J-Class revival was the decision of the J-Class Association to allow aluminium and other materials to be used as a hull construction material. This reinforced the renewed interest among owners to build J-class yachts. After a performance analysis by Gerard Dijkstra of the existing J's as well as the designs that were allowed to be built under the new JCA rules, a specific J Class handicap system was developed in order to enable all yachts built to the J Class designs to race against each other regardless of size, sail area or hull construction.

Sailing Uma - Our Boat

https://www.sailinguma.com/our-boat

Saved by uncleflo on February 23rd, 2019.

They say a journey of a thousand miles, begins with a single step. For us, rather than a step, our journey began with a leap. We sold everything we didn’t need, cars, computers, motorcycles, furniture — everything. What we couldn’t sell, we donated and we used the money to buy a sailboat. Our boat “Uma” is a 1972 Pearson 36. She is neither fancy and expensive, nor cheap and flimsy—to us, she is perfect. We wanted a name that carried with it the motivation and rational that led us to buy her in the first place. Her name was inspired by the Portuguese number 1 (uma), meaning first or primary. She is our first step

Youtube - Systems and Components of an Offshore Sailing Catamaran - Lagoon 410 Walkthrough

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFxgUTW_F3s

Saved by uncleflo on December 19th, 2018.

After three and a half years of sailing around the world and well over 10000 nautical miles we wanted to give you a tour of our floating home as it is now. Nahoa is a 2005 Lagoon 410 owner’s version that has carried us all this way. We have worked hard over these last years to set her up for long term offshore cruising. While there is always a project list and a wish list (new high output alternators, spinnaker, new Genoa), we are very happy with our current setup and wanted to share it with you. Our longest video to date includes a high level view of our main power, navigation and safety systems that enable us to live life off the grid. Don’t worry you also get a detailed tour of the inside of our boat and the comforts that keep us happily sailing around the world! Nahoa has had a huge remodel since we purchased her in 2015. We have done 2 refits to get her setup for comfort and to solve our power requirements. Notice all the beautiful green has been replaced? Well that isn’t all! Below we have a list of some of the main components we have added or replaced. This list does not include basic maintenance items since those are essentially relentless. It does however cover some of the bigger items which were replaced as they broke and wore out. We have found that in the last year, as the boat turned 12-13 years old, we have had to replace more of the remaining systems. Also the previous owner had replaced standing rigging and so that is something we have not had to yet tackle, but it will come up again soon! So without further rambling, if you are curious please check the exhaustive list below and I hope you enjoy the tour.

Shuttleworth Design

Saved by uncleflo on September 14th, 2018.

Through innovative design and engineering, our yachts are carefully crafted for comfort, safety and performance. Shuttleworth Design is a multi-award winning design consultancy that has been working with an international client base at the forefront of yacht design, engineering and naval architecture for more than 35 years. Shuttleworth Design grew out of John Shuttleworth Yacht Designs Ltd, a company founded by John Shuttleworth in 1980 to develop the knowledge of multihull design and engineering. John was one of the first yacht designers to develop the idea of "integrated design", a way of approaching the engineering and overall design as an integrated whole rather than a series of parts joined together. John also pioneered the use of computer aided design in multihulls and has always been a believer in research and development, often conducting tank tests and radio controlled model tests. This innovative approach resulted in boats that were lighter, stiffer, and stronger than any previous multihull designs, and put John Shuttleworth Yacht Designs firmly in the forefront of the field. John then successfully transferred this knowledge to cruising designs, an area that is under continual development. His designs have many ocean crossings behind them and Zeepoes (a 63 ft cruising catamaran) has completed two around the world voyages.

Philippe Dufour - Horlogerie Compliquée - Welcome to the non-official Philippe Dufour web site !

http://dufourwatches.free.fr/

Saved by uncleflo on June 5th, 2018.

Philippe Dufour is an AHCI member living in the Vallée de Joux, a very nice place considered as the cradle of high-end mechanical horology. He is clearly one of the most respected, most inovative and most talented master watchmakers working nowadays. His creations are considered as the quintessence of watchmaking, above everything that can be bought from known and respected companies. Philippe Dufour was born in the Vallée and went to the Sentier technical school when he was 15 years old. He became a watchmaker in 1967 and was employed by Jaeger-le-Coultre. The master watchmaker Gabriel Locatelli gave him a great knowledge of horology. He then worked in the Caribean islands and came back to Switzerland in 1974, employed by Audemars Piguet and Gerald Genta. He gave life back to old and very complicated watches, including quite a lot of repeaters, working for the Osvaldo Patrizzi workshop. He also made five "grandes sonneries" for Audemars Piguet and, then, decided to produce watches under his own name in 1989. Since that time, Philippe Dufour is one of the most sought after independant watchmaker. His search for perfection is what makes him so special in this world ! He is working alone (with the help of his daughter and of a young assistant) in his workshop, making nearly all the parts of his watches by himself and focusing on an incredible level of finishing and precision that can probably be found nowhere else today.
