Lyons 70 - High Performance Cutter

High performance cruising cutter sloop from Applied Alloy Yachts in Australia, designed by David Lyons, Australia. Many upgrades and major refit right down to bare hull in 2004 by Marine Applications of Australia. Great looking ocean cruising yacht with good accommodation, and all fixtures and fitting you would need. New mast and rigging, new engine in 2007, sails replaced in 2009. Worth considering if you a want a large blue water cruising yacht with good turn of speed and attractive to look at. The yacht design was originally called Lyons 65 (not 62) however after the major refit and rebuild with creating a transom garage it was extend to 70 feet (21.34 m).

Owners Comments

Valtair is a pedigreed sailing yacht built in aluminium in 1996 in Melbourne, Australia.

Valtair was extensively refitted and refurbished in 2002 from the bare hull to new riggings and sails. It took nearly two years in Brisbane to re-commission Valtair. As much as four tons were added from her minimum weight ratio for pure racing to suit the present cruising needs of modern comfort such as generator, air conditioning system, watermaker, additional fuel and water tank, furling boom, music and video entertainment centre and a host of other creative comfort furniture and easy navigational equipment. Valtair has twin Yanmar 75 HP engines , retractable keel, sonar and bow thruster for maneuvering in a tight spot. All safety equipment are on board to meet the international sailing safety standards.

There are five double cabins on Valtair : two forward (front) for the crew, one at mid section and two at Aft (rear). The two Aft cabins shared a head (bathroom), the mid section has attached head, the rear two share in between head. Valtair can accommodate ten people, four for crew and six for guests and if the owner would be on board, she can take two couples as guest.
A large saloon come-dining at mid section offers panoramic view and similarly the cockpit can be used for lounging and outdoor dining under shade of the bimini.
With all the hydraulic and automatic equipment on board, Valtair can be sailed easily with minimum crew.
