At Luctor Yachts we recognized the absence of a fast 36 foot IRC racer on the market. Therefore we are proud to introduce the Luctor 36. Based on the successful Lutra design of our Luctor GP42, the Luctor 36 is a highly competitive boat, configured for round the cans and offshore racing with a wide appeal due to its size and reasonable cost. This design provides the grand prix racing owner with the competitive edge to win on the highest level of yacht racing. With all the necessary components of a comfortable but light interior, the Luctor 36 will also appeal to those recreational sailors who want to enjoy high speeds and occasional racing once in a while.
With tremendous attention given to keeping building costs down and quality high, it is anticipated that the Luctor 36 will be extremely popular. This design offers versatility to the recreational racing sailor, and a very competitive IRC boat to those planning a grand prix campaign. The sail plan provides a generous sail area and a carbon mast. The deck layout is simple and efficient and features tiller steering for excellent response to the helm. The keel and rudder are both highly advanced deep foils, with minimal tip deflection. The stiff carbon hull has a displacement of just 3.000 kilograms and a long waterline. The VPP shows a very fast boat that can make up for her rating in any type of weather. Her high stability and large sail area generate speeds of well over 25 knots downwind.
Our intention is that the specifications for the Luctor 36 Class Rules provide close racing without time allowance in grand prix competition and that these yachts are fast, sound and seaworthy, retaining thereby, with a minimum of modifications, good value beyond their competitive lives as grand prix racers. The yacht is built in accordance with the ABS Guide for Building.
The Luctor 36 combines the best of both worlds: one design racing and excellent performance within the IRC and IRM rating rules.
