Looe - Lugger 40

Designed by Alan Pape and based on a design from 1895, this modern reconstruction in steel is a real head-turner. She has been rigged with single or short handed sailing in mind, and she turns heads in every port she visits. Ideal for the liveaboard dream, long distance cruising, or even sail training. A 2006 survey report is available on request.

Owners Comments

This is the "one and only steel lugger" build along the traditional lines and will outlast any wooden vessel. 

No condensation inside due to the foam coating.

She can be sailed single handed with ease and due to the powerful engine and big rudder combination, is very maneuverable in close quarters and she sails like a Rolls Royce!
