A classic, yet modern daysailer - and an eyecatcher!
With the new LA 35, LA Yacht- und Bootsbau GmbH from Waren on Lake Müritz in the north-east of Germany is launching another classic daysailer designed by Martin Menzner at Berckemeyer Yacht Design. The shipyard manager Lothar Fichtner responds to the numerous requests from interested sailors for whom the smaller sister yacht LA 28, which was one of the eye-catchers at the boot Düsseldorf 2017, was a little too small for longer trips. The big sister now offers an interior set-up adapted to the requirements on longer trips with up to four beds and a small pantry. And as its sister yacht, it is once more a real beauty!
Modern boat building in a classic yacht As with the smaller boat, the hull and deck of the LA 35 are made entirely of molded wood and built using modern vacuum technology. The inner layers are made of sipo and cedarwood, the outer veneer is made of selected khayawood. As top deck layer the LA 35 receives a noble teak deck. For the gluing of the veneers, the high-end Waren shipyard uses only high quality EP resin.
Keel and rudder As standard, the LA 35 comes as a fixed keel version with T-keel made of a carbon fin with a lead bomb. Optionally, a swing keel version (2.10 - 0.9 m) will be available. The spade rudder, sitting on a ball-bearing shaft with tiller steering, is pre-balanced and can optionally be replaced by a twin rudder with two short rudder blades for the swing keel version of the yacht.
Rigg and sails Mast and boom of the LA 35 are made of carbon, come from Selden and are rigged using Dyform wire. In addition, the yacht has a kicker made of carbon with gas spring, an extendable bowsprit (carbon optional) for gennaker and code 0 sails and a self-tacking jib system and traveller. Owners can choose between an electric or a conventional diesel inboard engine.
Eye-catcher in action - The LA 35's little sister LA 28
Below decks Below deck, the LA 35 offers sleeping space for up to four people and is suitably equipped for longer sailing trips. Separated by a door from the saloon, a V-berth for two people with 2.20 meters in length is located in the bow. The saloon features a small table and the seating can be transformed easily into two additional berths, allowing four people to sleep comfortably on board. A small pantry and a bathroom with marine toilet and sink complete the touring equipment.
