LEONORE has a very versatile layout with a great pilothouse and engine room for ease of use and management at anchor or at sea.


In her almost 100,000 miles at sea under her first owner, LEONORE used her generator VERY LITTLE as she has gigantic alternators and very large banks of batteries.  Please note that the batteries have all been replaced (7/2018) under her new ownership, allowing for many years of trouble free supply of direct current on board.


LEONORE has a great master cabin the full width of the boat aft with a totally separate access to deck.  In addition, she has two cabins forward with separate heads and a very large shared shower.  The port cabin has upper and lower bunks and the starboard cabin has a double bed.


In addition, the fourth cabin, with its own head and shower that doubles as a powder room, converts from the aft port salon seating area and treadmill, to a cabin with privacy enclosure.  This proved, in LEONORE's many miles, as a valuable "overflow" cabin and, more importantly, an easy access for someone who was to back up the "on watch" person.

Seahawke Rigging carried out an 8 year rod rigging refit with BSI components.  The 8 year service consisted of the following work done in November 2015.


Main Mast Summary

- The headstay and inner forestay rods were replaced with new.  The cutter stay (middle stay) and the backstays were reheaded and had a short section added at top to make up for loss of length during the reheading process.  All eye fittings, sockets, rod connectors and toggles were replaced with new.  The backstay SSB isolators were also replaced.

- Some lateral rigging was replaced with new, some reheaded.  Please refer to the BSI spreadsheet as this cannot be summarized.  The spreader tip-cups and diagonal tang assemblies were all sent to BSI, Denmark to be inspected, undergo non-destructive testing, cleaned and polished.  All turnbuckles were replaced with BSI type SL5.

- Kevlar running backstays were reused.


Mizzen Mast Summary

- All rods on the mizzen were replaced with new with the exception of the D1 aft which was reheaded.  Please refer to the BSI spreadship for full breakdown.  As with the main mast, the spreader tip-cups and diagonal tang assemblies were all sent to BSI to be inspected, undergo non-destructive testing, cleaned and polished.  All turnbuckles were replaced with BSI type SL5 except D1 forward and D1 aft which were inspected, NDT, cleaned and polished.


- Kevlar backstays were reused.

- Spreaders for both masts were painted.

- All spreader lights and navigational lights were replaced.

- Both Navtec vangs were resealed and recharged.

The original owner of LEONORE was an extremely experienced yachtsman having owned multiple sailing yachts before LEONORE.  When LEONORE was built, he lived in New Zealand the entire time during her design and construction.  When completed, without compromise, the owner sailed aboard for just under 100,000 nautical miles.  This took him all over the world, from high latitudes both north and south, all over the Pacific, around Cape Horn and throughout the Atlantic and Mediterranean.


The current owner has concentrated on the Pacific Northwest.  After hundreds of thousands of dollars in capital upgrades, the owner is moving on to a new land based adventure..


LEONORE is a very well proven design and ideal layout for her next adventures, near or far.  In yachts of even 20-30 feet longer, NO YACHT HAS A WALK-IN, STAND UP ENGINE ROOM to facilitate easy access to ALL equipment LIKE LEONORE .  This enables important maintenance to machinery and systems to ensure reliable service.
