Cœur de Lion has been launched in summer 2005. It is a custom built design based on Gilbert Carroff’s design. (Cutter Extrem 50). Our choice was to built an aluminum shoal draft sailboat that can get everywhere and without limitations. Her centerboard configuration offers 3’ -9 with board up and 9’.. with board down . The keel is a swinging keel and can be control from the cockpit. So far CDL has never been rigged as a Cutter, nevertheless all the attaching points have been installed. The bridge clearance is 64-0 feet. If you plan to run with the mast down, we already have all the aluminum structure done, easy to store and easy to install.
Ballast of over 12000 pounds of embedded lead have been placed each side of the keel providing a stiff and fast vessel in most conditions. This boat can be easy sail by two persons. Built from scratch with ¼ & ½ inches of 5083 grade aluminum plates. Flat bottom allows the boat sit straight on bottom without any problem. Many custom options were added based on our experienced owner such as Anderson large winches, Harken’s battcar, two chains Windlass, each e/w 150 feet of 3/8 chain cordless remote and chain counter made anchorage easy .
Tall rig mast from US Spar sit on deck is very easy to remove or install. The main sale e/w 3 reefs can be operated from cockpit. On the tall boom we have a sail cover e/w lasyjack for easy sail storage. The main sail is install on the Harken’s Battcar System. Major hardware’s such as blocks, tracks, travelers, deck organizers, ratchet blocks are from Harken except for Genoa furler, which it is a Schaefer 3100. Sheet clutches are Spinlock.
The yacht features a large storage room at the forepeak. Accessible from a large hatch (24x24) you can store fenders, lines, power cords, hose, etc. It also provides an access to vertical windlass, chains and bow thruster. Pressurized seawater is available into this storage area in order to clean anchors or else. Another large storeroom is available on rear port side.
