The Lutra 56ft Formidable 3, is an 11.5 ton one of a kind Offshore Racer/ Cruiser, designed by Ad Konijnendijk ( Lutra Yacht Design ), in cooperation with Dijkstra Naval Architects ( lifting keel ) and Eric Goetz ( GOETZ Custom Yacht Builders Bristol RI USA
Formidable 3 is a very competitive Racer Cruiser; although her structure is entirely made of carbon fibre, she is well fitted out below.
Built with a lifting keel (2.50m/3.70m) and 4 water ballast tanks, she can sail both in keel fully up, and fully down position and has increased stability for short handed sailing when water ballast tanks are used, replacing more than the weight of her full crew on the rail ( water capacity each side: 1360 Liters ).
This very fast yacht is remarkably comfortable to sail, is built to the highest standards and comes with a high modulus Halls Spars carbon fibre rig, including PBO (fibre cloth) standing rigging and a full inventory of 25 North Racing and Delivery Sails.
