24 metre Livingstone delivered by Hartman Yachts
by Chris Jefferies
This steel-hulled displacement yacht was developed in collaboration with naval architects Kroes & Poortinga, while her interior décor comes courtesy of Sheerline Yacht Design.
Inside Livingstone has a family-friendly layout with a lounge, dining area and galley on the main deck, and four guest cabins below. Registered in the Dutch town of Urk, she has a 6.71 metre beam.
Key features on board Livingstone include a foredeck seating area that matches her colourful hull, a raised pilot house, which provides great views while underway, and davit storage for her custom-made Italian tender on the extended upper deck.
Dutch supplier Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology was responsible for the design and installation of the electrical, audio-visual, navigation and communications systems on board this classically styled yacht.
Power comes from a single 350hp MAN Tier II diesel engine for a top speed of 11 knots. When trimmed back to her cruising speed of 10 knots Livingstone will return a maximum cruising range of around 3,000 nautical miles.
Yard founder Johan Hartman added: "We know the ins and outs of the nautical trade as no other. Values and standards that have stood the test of time are at the core of our company and underpin all our activities.”
