Luc sails “Zee Wolf” from Ventnor to Zeebrugger in 8.5 hours

Luc de Rijcke collected his new 7.2m Cheetah and sailed it home to Belgium in September. At 7.2m x 2.54m, it is one in the range of smaller Cheetahs. Power comes from 2 x 100hp extra long shaft Honda engines with two 120 litre fuel tanks fitted below deck.

All lighting is LED and the wheelhouse is comfortably fitted out with helm and navigators seats and a third seat, all on moulded storage pods. A folding roof mast gantry and the rest of the stainless steel work was, as usual, carried out in house.

On deck there is a side door for easy access, three rope rollers and a 1000VC Vetus Capstan fitted. Six coats of coppercoat complete the specification.

Unfortunately when “Zee Wolf” left for Zeebruger, the weather was poor with strong winds and rain.

Luc texted “The boat sails enormously good in our short waves.Top boat.Thank you all for the very good service”.
