The LRC58, a fuel efficient passagemaker is newly designed to work well as a permanent live-aboard but will be equally suited to coastal cruising, crossing oceans or drifting down inland waterways.
The LRC58 hull is very sleek with maximum waterline length. The interior volume is kept relatively small compared to the overall length. A low displacement to length ratio is crucial for effortless cruising speeds and low fuel consumption.
The LRC58 is self-righting.
A 75-90hp diesel engine running through a shaft and attached to a controlled-pitch propeller will produce a cruising speed of between 7 and 9 knots and a maximum of 11 knots, making this a fuel-efficient boat.
Construction is aluminium which is strong and light.
The LRC58 is available professionally built by experienced boatyards.
