BROKER'S COMMENTS

The Arthur Robb Lion Class is a classic racer cruiser – and in that mode as capable of long crossings as short trips, well proven by her present owner. Robustly built but with graceful lines, she’s also spacious below with headroom enough for her 6 foot 4 inch tall owner, whose original intention to cruise has evolved somewhat on finding her to be such a fine racing boat. Usually cruised with 2 aboard she is very manageable. For racing, especially with the spinnaker, she’s more ably crewed by 4 and sometimes 5.

Construction

-Carvel teak planking on hardwood frames. -Bronze floors – renewed in 1995 -Deck in marine ply with GRP over -Teak superstructure and interior

Her present owner discovered TWILIGHT literally up a creek in Bermuda in 2003, her then owner having moved overseas. She needed some sprucing up and interior fit out but was in very sound condition having undergone a complete restoration in the 1990s. She has been kept in A1 condition since then. Lived on for 2 years in the Caribbean both cruising and racing (she won many of her races at the Antigua Classic Regatta in 2004 and 2005, and got a 2nd in the Concours d\'Elegance), she crossed the Atlantic two handed in 2005. The first year she sailed engineless but in 2005 a Yanmar 3GM30 was fitted in Trinidad before crossing to the UK. Most recently she has achieved notable results in Round the Island races; 3rd overall on handicap in 2007, 2nd in 2008 (and 1st in class of 150 boats) and 4th in class 9th OA in 2009.

Arthur Robb Lion Class

Full specification

Wooden Ships Comments on this Arthur Robb Lion Class

Designed by Arthur C. Robb and built by the Cheoy Lee Shipyard, Hong Kong in 1961.

The Lion Class was a very successful design from the eminent Arthur C. Robb. Many examples (including this one) were built by the Cheoy Lee Shipyard in Hong Kong benefitting from the close proximity of tropical forests where the best teak could be sourced.

The Lion Class was built in deep and shallow draft variants, this yacht being the deeper type at 5’7” with a reasonably cut away forefoot making her nimble and quick in the turn. Elegant stretched ends with a sleek counter and a very sweet sheer line which is helped by the low profile coachroof.

This yacht has benefited from an incredible amount of diligent refit work by the three most recent owners. Initially in Bermuda during the 90’s where much of the interior was altered and bronze strap floors fitted replacing the original steel. After crossing the Atlantic several times and competing very successfully in the Antigua Classics regatta in 2004 and 2005 she came back to the UK. Her successful racing career continued with notable results in the Round The Island race and other classic regattas.

In the following ownership she had a good deal of updating including a new engine, systems and rig with a thorough cosmetic spruce up but in the current ownership the standard of finish, systems, and structural maintenance were taken to a new level with major work to include dropping of the ballast keel and replacement of all keel bolts, some beefing up of the centreline structure and the yawl rig replaced by a beautiful custom made fractional sloop rig in full length Oregon pine to the original drawings. All work carried out by David Moss Boatbuilders who are well known for their exceptional quality.

Other work carried out during the refit included new timber hatches to replace modern ones, much improved access to the drive and stern gland, a new fuel tank, rudder bearings and a Featherstream four bladed folding prop giving much improved performance under sail.

The work was completed by a back to bare timber repaint and professional varnish work. A new suit of top quality tri-radial sails by Goachers put the finishing touches to what is now a top class yacht in superb order.

A  shakedown season in the Irish Sea and Western Approaches during 2022 allowed thorough testing of the new rig and systems. The yacht has been stored under cover since and is in ready to sail condition.

Cheoy Lee 35 Lion Class Nice used-boat review in Soundings: Designer Arthur Robb, a native New Zealander, was well-known in the 1950s and ’60s for his offshore cruising sailboats. Cheoy Lee, the pioneering Hong Kong builder (though it was founded in Shanghai) began producing the 35 Lion Class in 1955, and more than 100 wooden hulls were built before the changeover to fiberglass in the 1960s. These early glass hulls featured teak decks over plywood, which often led to delamination problems. Production of the popular cruisers continued into the 1980s. In 1965, a new Cheoy Lee 35 Lion cost $13,900. Used models today generally run from about $40,000 up to $85,000 for “showroom” boats, although there are bargains out there, too, especially if you’re looking for a fixer-upper. http://www.soundingsonline.com/boat-shop/used-boat-review/287682-cheoy-lee-35-lion-class

The Lion Class Battleships: Britain’s Unfinished WWII Leviathans and the Bismarck's Fierce Legacy

T he tale of Britain’s Lion class battleships is a narrative of ambition and shifting priorities in the crucible of World War II. Planned as a series of six ships intended to lead the Royal Navy’s line of battle, these vessels were a response to foreign naval developments and a bid to maintain British naval supremacy. The Lion class, conceived in the late 1930s, was poised to become the most advanced and powerful capital ships in the Royal Navy’s arsenal. They were designed with significant firepower, including 16-inch guns, and a protection scheme that could withstand contemporary threats.

However, the outbreak of the Second World War and the rapid evolution of naval warfare would dramatically alter their fate. As the war progressed, the need for more escorts to defend against submarines and other smaller vessels became critical. The Royal Navy’s strategic focus shifted away from a potential engagement with enemy battleships to convoy protection and anti-submarine warfare. As a result, work on the Lions was halted, and they remained on the drawing board. If completed, these 40,000-ton behemoths would have been a sight to behold, representing the zenith of British battleship design.

Their intended capabilities were remarkable: with dimensions exceeding 700 feet in length, and a beam of over 100 feet, the final Lion class designs boasted an impressive array of armaments. The primary armament was to consist of nine or twelve 16-inch guns, capable of devastating volleys at long range. Secondary armaments included numerous dual-purpose 5.25-inch guns and a plethora of smaller anti-aircraft weapons, including the versatile 40mm Bofors, to fend off aerial attackers.

Their protection scheme was equally formidable, with belt armor up to 15 inches thick and an intricate underwater defense system to withstand torpedo attacks. The designs also included advanced radar systems, such as the Type 279 for air-search and the Type 284 for fire-control, which would have provided the Lion class battleships with cutting-edge targeting capabilities.

The Lion class battleships embodied the strategic dilemma that confronted the Royal Navy during WWII: how to balance the construction of capital ships with the pressing need for smaller, more versatile warships. This dilemma was shared by other navies as well, most famously Germany’s Kriegsmarine, which faced its own challenges with the famed battleship Bismarck.

Launched in 1939, Bismarck was the pride of the German fleet. While the Royal Navy grappled with the evolving nature of naval warfare and the consequent cancellation of the Lion class, the Bismarck demonstrated the deadly potential of a battleship at large. Its sink the Bismarck saga became the stuff of maritime legend, culminating in a dramatic final showdown with the British fleet in May 1941.

The Bismarck’s brief but eventful career at sea began with a successful engagement against the battlecruiser HMS Hood, resulting in the latter’s catastrophic destruction. However, this victory was short-lived. In a grim twist of fate, Bismarck, a symbol of naval might, was rendered impotent by a seemingly antiquated foe: Fairey Swordfish biplanes from the aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal, which damaged its rudder.

Cornered by a determined Royal Navy force, Bismarck faced relentless bombardment from battleships including HMS Rodney and HMS King George V. After a protracted and brutal fight, the Bismarck was sunk, taking with it over 2,000 lives. Its wreckage, located by oceanographer Robert Ballard in 1989, remains a somber reminder of the ferocity of naval combat and the end of the era of battleships as the ultimate arbiters of sea power.

H22 is a 21 ′ 11 ″ / 6.7 m monohull sailboat designed by Rob Humphreys and built by Lion Yacht starting in 1994.

Drawing of H22

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

Initially designed as a kit boat for amateur builders using the ‘Prefix’ build system, (glass moldings with pre-cut plywood panels). The H22 is now being built of glass sandwich construction in Latvia. At least one class racing fleet exists in Italy.

The new J Class sailing yacht Lionheart

Lionheart was the third new J Class to be launched since Harold S Vanderbilt's successful America's Cup Defender, Ranger , took to the water in 1937. In 2003, a replica of Vanderbilt's Super J Ranger left the Danish Yacht boat yard and immediately began racing, followed six years later by the J Class replica of Endeavour II , renamed Hanuman , leaving the Royal Huisman Shipyard and competing successfully against Ranger just four months after launching. With the launch of the Hoek Design_ Lionheart_ from Claasen Jachtbouw the stakes have been raised again.

The meeting between the replicas of Ranger and Endeavour II was significant when the duo met in 1930s, Ra nger _was victorious, but the more recent _Endeavour II-r eplica, Ha numan, triumphed on the water 90 years later.

For Andre Hoek, a detailed research program focused on testing the various, original J Class designs revealed that Lionheart was one of the best set of designs available for an all-round, high-performance J.

When an existing client came to us for a third yacht, his main interest was a new J Class yacht,' says Hoek. 'He asked us what we would do if we were to build a new J and that led to a proposal to first do a dedicated research project to determine what would possibly be the best performing J Class yacht.

'We proposed to analyse the theoretical performance of all existing J Class lines and to develop a dedicated Velocity Prediction Program specifically geared to J Class hulls with long keels,' the marine architect explains, 'as the existing VPP software is all for round-bilged hulls with fin keels and spade rudders, which are totally different hydrodynamically to a long keel hull with a rudder that forms a flap on a long keel.'

The proposal was accepted and a new Velocity Prediction Program for typical J Class hulls was developed together with Peter van Oossanen (of wing keel and FDHF fame).

Tank test data of a 20 foot long model of the J Class _Rainbow _was used to calibrate the mathematical formula of the VPP program. With this new software, initially all possible Super Js (with a maximum waterline length of 26.51m) were analysed for performance both on line honours and handicap.

The five best-performing hulls from this research were then analysed using computational fluid dynamics software (CFD). The CFD analysis confirmed the VPP findings and the search was narrowed to three hull designs:

One of the eight tank-tested designs commissioned by Vanderbilt from W Starling Burgess and Olin Stephens for the Ranger 77-F project;

Svea , designed by Sweden's Tore Holm in 1938 but never built; and A Frank C Paine design that didn't progress beyond the drawing board.'Of the final three, Lionheart showed the best overall performance,' Hoek reveals. 'The Paine-designed Atlantis is a very good light wind and downwind boat and Svea is the best upwind boat.'

Furthermore, the research proves that the_ Lionheart_ design is faster than the lines chosen for the original Ranger a choice that was not due to flaws in the combined wisdom of Vanderbilt, Burgess and Stephens, but purely that tank testing with models of just under a metre in length is now known to supply inconclusive and misleading data.

Once the optimum design podium was full, the client purchased the intellectual property rights for the Burgess/Stephens Ranger 77-F designs from Sparkman and Stephens and optimisation began on the_ Lionheart_ hull, rig and sail plan. The process started with recreating the 1937 lines to ensure that both port and starboard matched a common error in early, hand-drawn, pre-digital designs.

Continuing research soon showed that the designs with the buoyancy further forward were more effective; wind tunnel testing produced the sail plan geometry, and rudder angle calculations with the new VPP dictated the mast position.

The next phase in the design process was hull strength and construction. While the original J Class yachts were built in steel, the J Class Association (JCA) allows the modern, replica yachts to use aluminium a farsighted decision by the JCA, but one that raises issues of longitudinal stiffness in yachts possessing the enormous overhangs synonymous with the classic J Class profile.

To prevent the characteristic hogging, sagging and alarmingly slack standing rigging associated with an elastic, aluminium hull, Hoek and his team used a 3D finite element model (FEM) to explore load levels throughout the yacht, resulting in an exquisite, internal lattice of aluminium supports to keep Lionheart stiff, and hull panels of multiple thicknesses dependant on specific load stress areas.

While the overall hull design remained faithful to the original, 1930s J Class remit, one aspect of the replica hulls had to change. 'We are allowed to raise the freeboard by 10cm and make a bulwark of an extra 10cm above the level of the deck,' confirms Hoek. 'These are the only two changes you are allowed to make to the original lines.'

The reason the JCA introduced the rule change is simple: 'It has everything to do with the fact that the boats were never built to be equipped with vast interiors, generators, powered winches, galleys and electronics,' Hoek explains. 'There were hardly any interiors in these boats and they were purely built for racing.'

However, J Class purists who fear that the sanctity of the original class rule has been compromised with modern tampering should realise that the truth is somewhat different.

'Most people think that a J Class has an extremely low freeboard with long overhangs,' continues Hoek. 'Especially when you look at the original, surviving boats Ve lsheda, Shamrock V _and _Endeavour.'

In reality, the modern equipment on Velsheda and _Endeavour _has sunk both yachts by around 30cm below their 1930s waterline.

'None of the surviving Js fit the original Universal Rule now,' he adds.

The Universal Rule ensured that waterline length was no longer than 87 feet (26.51m). 'In some of them, the waterline length is now about 95 feet as they are so much lower in the water,' states Hoek.

Historically, the 26.51m waterline achieved by the Super J yachts was a fundamental advantage an area researched heavily by Vanderbilt.

'In 1936, they did a test with Rainbow and ballasted her down to precisely 26.51m,' recalls Hoek. Sinking the yacht below her natural 24.99m waterline delivered immediate results.

'She was faster than she was before due to the improved righting moment, but still did well in light airs,' he adds. 'The conclusion that a Rainbow -type boat at 26.51m waterline length would be high performance led to all the subsequent Ranger designs.'

The implications of this issue are twofold in terms of performance and aesthetics, for although modern photographs of the surviving yachts suggest that reduced freeboard is more in keeping with tradition, the replica Js with their stretched overall length in the overhangs to compensate for the increased freeboard, share an identical design DNA.

'So, technically, the freeboard of the new boats is higher,' explains Hoek, 'but they are actually closer to the original.'

Lionheart's immaculate hull has been built at the Bloemsma yard, a key player in the current J Class revival, which has also been responsible for the hulls of Atlantis and Rainbow . Lionheart's fitting out was done at Claasen Jachtbouw with a team of 20 craftsmen and specialist contractors working with extraordinary co-ordination in the yacht's slender hull.

Deeper into the boat at the turn of the bilge in an area that charter guests are unlikely to visit the engine room is a masterpiece of space management. Despite the sheer volume of engineering squeezed into such a confined space, it is possible to stand upright and move around without skinning elbows or slipping discs.

And while Claasen Jachtbouw is famous for its exquisite joinery work and attention to detail, technical installations are to very high quality levels as well. MCM from Newport, USA, acted as the owner's representative a team of specialists that have added considerable experience to the build team. Their vast technical and big boat racing experience has also contributed to the end result on board.

For Victor Weerens, the yacht's project manager at Claasen Jachtbouw, Lionheart has been an exceptional experience.

'It has been a great project for us with many challenges,' he admits. 'But the team here and our sub-contractors have met all the demands of building a modern J.'

After launching she was taken up river to Zaandam for the stepping of the clear-coat carbon mast and boom from Hall Spars with Future Fibres PBO rigging.

Claasen Shipyards

Lionheart, completed by Claasen in 2010, was the first J-class yacht with an aluminium hull. With a length of 43.40 metres, she was also the largest so far, although she is due to be surpassed by the SVEA project currently being built by Vitters Shipyard.

Lionheart is designed for cruising as well as racing, and is therefore built to MCA. No expense has been spared to ensure that she is competitive on the race course, and her performance has been optimised by a design that incorporates research done on previous J-class yachts.  Lionheart ’s hull is built in high tensile Alustar plating and extrusion materials, and she employs longitudinal stringers to ensure maximum stiffness.

Tremendous 17-metre overhangs lend Lionheart a striking appearance. She features two deckhouses and two cockpits, with one of each reserved for the owner, and the owners’ cockpit linked to their suite for maximum privacy.
