The Buizen name needs little introduction to discerning sailors, with the Buizen 48 Series 3 carving another notch in the Australian yachtmaker’s legendary reputation having won this year’s 'Boat of the Year (Sail) 2008 award.

Buizen yachts don’t rely on model changes to drive sales, nor is their philosophy price focused. Instead, uncompromised quality, refinement and evolutionary improvement have been the hallmarks of the blue water cruising 40’ and 48’ yachts that Buizen hand build for their loyal customers to sail the world.

It has been 12 years since Buizen Yachts introduced a new model. Now, Buizen announces the release of a new 60 foot model; a move that represents a significant milestone in the company’s history.

Director of the company Steve Howe said 'Since the 48 was launched, we have had a considerable number of enquiries from current owners and prospective customers asking when we would be building a larger yacht. Until now we have resisted, preferring to concentrate on developing the 48 to its ultimate expression. Satisfied that the 48 Series 3 is exactly that, we began laying down plans for the 60. Rather than pursuing a mere incremental change from the iconic 48, we chose to develop an entirely new model which would be significantly different and offering appointments exclusive to craft of 60 + feet. This is something we felt Buizen customers were searching for and we anticipate will also be highly appealing to prospective customers in international markets.'

Buizen are renowned for hand building unique world cruising pilot house yachts typified by exceptional design and quality. Now the 60, completely new and undeniably Buizen, offers inclusions approaching super yacht status.

The design on deck features a twin helm area separated from the social and entertaining cockpit, backed by a transom garage which lowers to provide a swim platform and enormous storage area behind for water toys and gear. Up front, a full standing height sail loft below deck, accessible from a foredeck hatch, provides storage for outboard motors, sails and all manner of ancillary gear.

Below deck accommodation features the famous Buizen pilot house saloon with internal helm, and sumptuous leather lounges and dining table., along with a standing height owner’s Aft Stateroom with ensuite. The spacious gourmet galley features a large twin corian benchtop along with full height fridge/freezer and pantry. Forward of the saloon and down a few steps are guest cabins also with ensuites. Buizen is offering a number of optional configurations including crew quarters if required.

All Buizens are designed to be sailed by couples or single handed and the Buizen 60 is no exception. Stern and Bow thrusters, a self tacking furling headsail, in-boom mainsail furling and hydraulic winches make for effortless sailing and docking.

A culmination of an intense18 month design collaboration period with Anthony Starr Design, naval architects Peter Lowe Design and the Buizen team has produced a luxurious and fast passage-making yacht. All are immensely proud of this new model which stands on the threshold of a new and exciting era for Buizen Yachts.

For a personalized preview of this amazing yacht, you’re invited to contact Steve Howe of Buizen Yachts for a comprehensive introduction to the exciting new Buizen 60.

All I can say is that had LRBAR's hull not been stopped by SBTJ's windward foil there would have been serious injuries aboard the Japanese boat. Moreover, notwithstanding the damage done to Land Rover BAR's boat, there must be considerable damage to the dagger-foil case of SBTJ. Considerable.
