Originally designed for the Ranger Syndicate, by Starling Burgess and Olin Stephens in 1936, her design has been extensively optimized by the Hoek Naval Architects to ensure that she will compete at the highest level.

"LIONHEART" is designed for cruising as well as racing, and is therefore being built to MCA Classification.

Competitively priced, she represents a unique opportunity for an Owner looking for performance with the added versatility of a cruising configuration.

A new breed of J-Class for a new era of J-Class racing.
