ABSENT OVERSEAS OWNERS WANT AND NEED THIS INCREDIBLE AND BEAUTIFUL, SERIOUS WORLD CRUISING YACHT SOLD. SHE IS ONE OF THE VERY BEST EXTREME EXPEDITION SAILING VESSELS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. TOTALLY READY TO DEPART TODAY TO ANYWHERE AT ANYTIME.
This is one serious ocean voyaging vessel we are proud to offer. Silver Lynx was originally conceived as an expedition vessel for motion picture production, and is in every respect a ‘proper ship’. The design brief was for a visually stunning yacht to add photographic value to any film, while filling the dual role of a totally reliable, comfortable, camera platform with smooth motion in tough seas.
She is an exquisitely elegant Classic Yacht. She is Yawl rigged with an eye catching suit of reaching sails, featuring a high cut Yankee, a Genoa Staysail, a high aspect Main, a Mizzen Staysail, and a petite Mizzen. All with a sail plan easily managed by a couple getting up in years.
Downwind she flies large symmetrical or asymmetrical white Spinnakers with Lynx Logo’s in red. The hull in white with understated red stripes has well proportioned traditional overhangs, and a teak deck newly recaulked in perfect condition.
The rugged Aluminum Hull is designed to Lloyds scantlings, and was built for possible operation in known ice and voyaging in high lattitudes. Silver Lynx carries the best equipment and electronics, with duplication for essential systems, to ensure the yacht remains operational at all times. She is fitted with a 6 cylinder Perkins Marine Diesel and a special Hundestad controllable pitch propeller. This enables her to motor sail very efficiently in all conditions, and gives her excellent passage making capabilities with a motoring range of 2,000 to almost 4,000 miles depending on conditions. With her generous fuel capacity, the yacht can meet demanding schedules to and from difficult locations.
This could be your perfect compromise between a spirited sailing vessel and a long range trawler. With her trusty Perkins diesel she motors better than most trawlers, and yet with an ocean to cross, she spreads her wings and sails.
Silver Lynx is in full round-the-world configuration, ready to cruise to any destination. She is a serious vessel with three staterooms and accommodations for six in comfort.
If you are considering a voyage of adventure to pretty much anywhere, you want to take a close look at Silver Lynx. Give us a call now. Lying in Annapolis MD at Annapolis Sailboat Show Time.
Peter Hartoft of Hartoft Marine Survey, Annapolis, Maryland performed a hull survey on Silver Lynx. September 13, 2011. Below is a summary of his findings.
On your request, the 57' Laurent Giles Yawl, “SILVER LYNX,” was inspected hauled out of the water at Washburn’s Boatyard in Calvert Marina in Solomons, Maryland on September 13, 2011. The purpose of the inspection was to ascertain the condition of the vessel’s hull exterior.
The Yacht was built in South Africa by Far Ocean between 2000 and 2005 when the vessel was launched. The vessel was finished and fully commissioned in 2007. The vessel is built of aluminum plating on aluminum frames. Vertical frames are spaced 46cm apart and longitudinal frames around 40mm apart. Plating is 20mm at bottom of keel, 8mm on portions of keel, and 6mm from around garboard area to sheer line.
The vessel’s hull was seen to be in extremely good cosmetic condition with paint finish excellent both on topsides and bottom and no unfairness. Inside the vessel, where stringers and bilge were seen, all were nicely painted and welds, where observed, were in excellent condition. The interior was in general good cosmetic condition. Teak overlay on the vessel’s decks were in the process of being recaulked at the time of inspection.
The vessel’s propeller and cutless bearing were in very good condition. The rudder was in good condition. The bow thruster was in good condition as observed. The zinc anodes on the vessel’s bottom were still active. A Cygnus 3 audio gauge was used taking thickness readings below the vessel’s waterline. All readings, as observed, were within normal limits indicating excellent plating with no signs of pitting or loss of paint adhesion. Refer to attached sketches for measurements.
