Arrluuk information required
« on: March 16, 2019, 09:52:49 PM »
I'm looking for information about Arrluuk, a 66 feet ketch or yawl. Can't find anything on the web. Some say year of build is 1934, others say 1997 or 2001.  The yacht with sail No. 58 will participate on this year's Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta.  Thanks for sharing some data. - Gerhard Standop, Cologne, Germany.

Welcome Gerhard,

Typically we need more information but an easy internet search shows this is a cold molded Bounty model of LF Herreshoff (design 58).  It is 66' LOA and not quite 58 on deck.

L. Francis Herreshoff Design # 58 Location: Oxford, MD

The boat sails well, is a well regarded yacht, and has had a few dozen replicas built.

Arrluuk is a very accurate replica of the Bounty design by L. Francis Herreshoff.  Built by Legendary Yachts in Washington state, USA.  Launched about 2000.

How many of those yachts were manufactured do you think?
