“Simba”, the classic Hoek-designed 108ft sloop, is a sistership to “Jazz Junior” and has a full package of Navtec rod standing rigging and fibre runners, together with a full hydraulic package including vang, backstay, outhaul and halyard cylinders. Lewmar also provided stainless electric and hydraulic deck winches, a hydraulic power system, complete mechanical steering system with custom wheels and a high-powered electric V9 anchor windlass.
“Music”, built at the Soyaslan Yard, is a 33.5m modern sloop. Navtec again provided a full set-up of rod standing rigging and fibre runners, alongside a full complement of hydraulic cylinders. Lewmar provided stainless winches, a 400 hydraulic thruster, Ocean Racing hardware, a hydraulic power system and Mamba steering system. The anchoring arrangement includes two V8 heavy-lift windlasses and twin 300lbs CQR anchors.
Lewmar’s custom division remains an extremely busy and important part of the overall business, with many ongoing re-fit and new development projects. Recent developments in windlass, hardware and winch have strengthened Lewmar’s already expansive custom product range.
