June 2018 — LRC58 #4 RAW was delivered from Auckland NZ to Phuket Thailand, a trip of a little more…
At this point in time two yards have been selected to build the LRC58 long range cruiser. That is Aluboot (www.aluboot.nl) in Hindeloopen, The Netherlands and Dickey Boats (www.dickeyboats.com) in Napier, New Zealand.
Aluboot (“Aluboat”) ”with over 40 years of experience” has specialised in building privately owned sailing yachts as well as motor yachts, the hull being built entirely in aluminium. Apart from that, the company has built more than 20 lifeboats for the Dutch SAR organisation KNRM.
Aluboot is a full service yard which means that every part of the LRC58 is constructed to order in-house.
