Superyacht Lionheart sold by Hoek Brokerage and YPI
by Malcolm MacLean
Pieter van der Weide at Hoek Brokerage tells me he found the buyer for the 43.4m sailing yacht Lionheart, a joint listing with Will Bishop at Yachting Partners, in a transaction dating back to June 1st this year.
Lionheart is the first of a new breed of aluminium J-Class sailing yachts built to a Hoekdesign at Holland's Claasen Jachtbouw.
The largest J-Class superyacht in existence, with 17m overhangs on an LOA of 43.4m, Lionheart is designed for cruising as well as racing, and is therefore built to MCA Classification. Lionheart can accommodate eight guests in four cabins. She featured in the November 2010 issue of Boat International.
