LOCURA, a fractional rigged sloop, was conceived as a performance bluewater pilothouse sailing vessel.  She is capable of long distance voyaging to any port in comfort and speed, and is presently in turnkey condition and ready for the next voyage.

In 2003, LOCURA completed an extensive refit by the original builder, Salthouse Brothers, in New Zealand.  An extensive list is available upon request but in brief, this refit included new hatches, new teak decking in the cockpit, aft deck and swim platform.  All done without the use of fastenings.  The addition of a bow thruster, new “Park Avenue” boom, complete refinishing and servicing of the mast, new 14’ RIB tender w/60 hp Yamaha 4-stroke, new life raft, new north sails (2012), mainsail, self tacking A-4 asymmetric spinnaker jib, and complete hull and deck painting.  Nearly $1,000,000 (USD) has been spent on upgrades.  New rudder was designed, built and installed (8/2012), greatly enhancing base of steering and performance.

LOCURA offers a comfortable and practical interior arrangement.  Rather than locating the owner’s stateroom in the aft section, which can be subject to noise from machinery and foot traffic, the owner enjoys a full-width stateroom forward which is private from the rest of the yacht.  Ideal for charter, long distance cruising and living aboard for extended periods, LOCURA also sails exceptionally well as her designers have incorporated their experience in larger racing yachts, including those that have raced in the America’s Cup.  

LOCURA is constructed in aluminum of marine grade alloy and built to American Bureau of Shipping approved plans.  Hull and deck thermal and acoustical insulation is achieved with foam sprayed on to all inner surfaces from the waterline up, including deck and pilothouse.  The interior of the engine room is covered in acoustical, sound absorbing foam rubber (covered by aluminum foil).

Separate sound insulation box for the generator.  The lazarette, lockers, paint/oil locker, sail locker and “garage” are painted in off-white Awlgrip but not insulated.  Exterior is painted in Awlgrip with an emphasis on low maintenance.  The deck is fitted with either built-in hand rails or stainless steel hand rails.

In calm water, the yacht averages approximately 8.75 to 9 knots at 1,550 rpm, burning roughly 3 to 4 gph.  The top speed in calm water is 12 knots at 2,350 rpm with consumption of approximately 7 gph.  Her range is approximately 1,600 to 1,800 miles at 8.5 knots under power.

In calm seas, the vessel will sail at wind speed to weather and easily reaches 10 to 12 knots.  Off-the-wind, the vessel will sail 13.5 knots in about 25 knots of wind.  Reaching, the yacht will be making 12 knots with 20 knots of breeze.  New sails and rudder 2012.
