Passagemaker LRC58-3 BRITT For Sale


The passagemaker LRC58-3 BRITT, designed by Dennis Harjamaa (NZ) of Artnautica Yacht Design, was built in 2017 by Aluboot, Hindeloopen, The Netherlands. It is a CE-A certified, self-righting long-range cruising boat, equally at home coastal sailing or crossing an ocean.

Built of marine grade 5083 aluminium (8mm bottom, 6mm topsides, 5mm wheelhouse, and deck), she is long and narrow, with a rugged and simple engine, and weighing in at 15 tons fully laden, which makes her incredibly economical to run. With her fuel tanks topped off, clean bottom, and sailing 8 knots on average her range is 3500 nm. Slow down to 7 knots and her range extends to 5000 nm.

LRC58-2 already crossed the Pacific starting in New Zealand and ending in The Bahamas. Last year she did the Great Loop (Broadsword sailed the Great Loop). LRC58-4 sailed from New Zealand to Thailand (RAW sailed to Thailand).

BRITT was designed for spending extended time off the grid if you choose so and full time liveaboard. Getting there, passage making at 7 to 9 knots, is easily achievable. Artnautica Europe was actively involved in the construction and fitting out of BRITT.

LRC58-1, KOTI (Finnish for home) is lived aboard full time by her owner and the designer of the LRC58.

BRITT spent the last two summers in the Baltic but since she is meticulously insulated and has double glazing (12mm outside, 6mm gap, and 6mm inside) she is operational throughout the year.

BRITT is for sale because her owners want to move to a liveaboard vessel that can accommodate six persons. So they intend to adopt a larger long-range cruiser, the LRC65.

BRITT is available now to travel the world, without the build wait.


The stateroom is forward with an immensely comfortable double bed, the saloon sofa and seats cleverly make up into one double and one single. The saloon is the ideal cozy place on the boat and includes a proper kneehole desk/table. The wheelhouse is where all the action takes place when driving the boat, entertaining guests, or cooking.

There are lots of things that make the LRC58 special but perhaps the one sailors will most appreciate is the spacious laid-out engine room or, the large stern cockpit.

The bathroom has a proper-sized standing shower with hardwood floor, glass shower-door, washbasin, Tecma electrical freshwater toilet plumbed to the black water tank, separate shower cabin, and unlimited hot water.

BRITT has a workshop, outfitted with a vice and numerous spare parts kept in the lazarette, such as a freshwater pump, impeller, gaskets, oil filter, belt set, fuses, bilge pump, led-lamps.

BRITT main dimensions are 17.6m (58′) LOA, 17.4m (57′) LWL, 4m (13.1′) Beam, 0.95m (3.1′) Draft, 3.2m (10.5′) x 3.5m (11.5′) Cockpit, Airdraft 7.2m (23.6′) and 3.5m (11.5′) with mast down.
