Broker's Comments

The Lynx 29 was produced by Jaguar Yachts and is almost identical to the Leisure 29. They have a reputation as remarkably sturdy sea going boats. To quote from the original brochure: “The hull is built in solid GRP with foam ribs and stringers for exceptional strength and minimum maintenance. The deck is in balsa sandwich for maximum insulation properties.Down below the cabins are fitted out in teak veneers and quality furnishings. Double lined throughout, the interior has long tinted windows which make the saloon light and airy by day. The companion way steps are easily removed to give access to the engine. The basic arrangement is a dinette which will seat five people in comfort with four more on the berth opposite. A separate toilet compartment, and hanging locker are fitted between the main saloon and forecabin. A full galley is fitted with cooker, sink and icebox.”

She definitely feels sturdy when first climbing on-board and there is an overwhelming sense of space both outside, with an impressively large cockpit and inside with full standing headroom, a navigation station, which you can actually fit into and cleverly converts to a quarter berth, large saloon and galley.

She is presented nicely throughout, has a good inventory and the icing on the cake is the recently fitted engine, which from the looks of it has done very few hours at all.

The overall impression is of a larger yacht, but everything seems to be in the right place, instruments, controls, winches, etc. and with halyards running back to the cockpit I imagine short handed or even single-handed sailing would be a breeze. And if all this wasn't enough she even comes with a Sailing Today review in 2003 by Colin Jarman. This boat has been viewed and photographed by Chris of Boatshed Essex.
