STORMBIRD of LORNE was supplied to her first owner by these offices in 1994. Her first sailing seasons were spent in Northern Europe predominantly on the west coast of Scotland. After a spell in the British Virgin Islands she returned to the UK in 2002 to be purchased by her current owner who has kept her based in the Solent.
STORMBIRD of LORNE has not been heavily used however she is prepared for all aspects of long distance cruising. Navigation, communications and domestic practicalities are all taken care of largely with recently updated equipment.
STORMBIRD of LORNE is the last HR49 built by Hallberg-Rassy. The HR49 is renowned for its comfort both at sea and in harbour. It has the expansive clear flush deck that is such a feature of the marque making deck work easy and providing fabulous living space in a warm climate.
