The state room 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, wash basin, Tecma electrical freshwater toilet plumbed to 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 fresh water 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.
BRITT is CE-A certified (NL-ALHBN093E717) and registered in the land registry of The Netherlands as a seagoing vessel (24472 Z 2017). BRITT has a clean bottom (anti-fouling treatment May 2020) and the life raft has been inspected recently (March 2020). BRITT is currently moored in Harlingen, The Netherlands (90 minutes drive from Schiphol Airport).
The LRC58 hull is very sleek with maximum waterline length. The interior volume is kept relatively small compared to the overall length. Most trawler type boats in this length category are much heavier, beamier and higher, have much more internal volume, weight, and therefore cost. A low displacement to length ratio is crucial for effortless cruising speeds and low fuel consumption.
One of the key elements in achieving efficiency is the controllable pitch propeller (CPP). There is a manually operated hydraulic pump at the helm for adjusting the pitch. With an exhaust gas temperature gauge this allows the engine to be loaded up to optimum operating temperature regardless of the conditions thus extracting the maximum mileage from every litre of fuel. We understand that everybody does not want the added complexity of a CPP system, therefore the boat is available with a fixed propeller option as well.
The LRC58 structure is strong without being over engineered. She is stiffened with 8mm transverse frames and full length girders and stringers. The hull bottom panel is 8mm thick, topsides are 6mm and deck is 5mm. The keel provides directional stability as well as good protection for the propeller and rudder. A propeller tunnel enables a shallow propeller shaft angle of only two degrees.
The LRC58 has low centre of gravity which makes for a stiff boat underway at sea. She has a reassuring firm ride. The hull shape provides the stability. The LRC58 is self-righting from a knockdown. The LRC58-3 BRITT has active fins installed for extra comfort.
The LRC58 design originated in 2013. It is a fuel-efficient passagemaker (5000 nautical miles @7 knots) and is 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 size. A low displacement to length ratio is crucial for effortless cruising speeds and low fuel consumption.
A 75-90 hp diesel engine running through a shaft and potentially attached to a controlled-pitch propeller (CPP) will produce a cruising speed 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.
