I was always wondering, why golf is more popular than sailing? How to make yachting just as affordable, as other mass sport disciplines? This boat is created for a new type of yacht clubs that will operate as fitness clubs. This business model operates with success in our Kiev Racing Yacht Club.
I’ve never supposed that I will be involved in boats building, but while trying to select an optimal sailing yacht for Kiev Racing Yacht Club I realized that there is no such boat on the market. It should be a fast, modern and inexpensive trailerable yacht with minimum maintenance costs, a spacious cabin and head, good for racing, team building, training and cruising.
We reviewed many options and not seeing anything that would be a perfect fit, we decided to to develop the perfect boat for our needs. Due to our joint efforts with Justin Yacht Design office and Oceantec shipyard, we created the Luka30 – a boat that satisfies very broad requirements. We used the state-of-the-art technology, materials and equipment. The users will enjoy its carbon fiber spars, twin steering wheels and inboard electric saildrive.
Racing teams will appreciate the L30 speed and dynamic handling combined with a wide range of adjustments, as well as its one design concept. Self-sufficiency, comfort and accommodation are perfect for a small family or a racing crew. You can store your L30 in your backyard or a parking, tow it with your family car and splash or lift the boat from a boat slip.
