LADY NAMOI : Legend 36 - 8 berth - 36'
New in 2008, the Legend 36 has proved an exciting addition to the Isle of Skye Yachts fleet. With her easy to handle sail controls, excellent sailing performance and luxurious accommodation down below she has appeal for all age groups.
On deck the tall, B&R fractional rig has all sail controls fed back to the cockpit. The trademark stainless steel arch protects those in the cockpit from dangling main sheets and droopy booms and a large spray hood keeps the wind off. The sail wardrobe consists of a roller furling genoa, large roach mainsail with lazy jacks and easily stowed flaking system and a storm jib. This sail plan makes for easy tacking and fast downwind sailing without the need for additional off-wind sails. Working away out of sight is the winged keel offering increased lateral resistance for a given draft. On the foredeck, anchoring is made simple with an electric windlass.
The cockpit is spacious with additional pushpit seats and there is a large cockpit table which folds away when not in use. The area is uncluttered and family friendly, with the mainsheet traveller up on the stainless-steel arch and three Lewmar winches (for the jib sheets, mainsheet, halyards, and reefing lines) on the cockpit coaming and coach roof. Access for boarding from the stern is excellent.
There is no backstay, the transom is walk-through, and there is sufficient clearance between the seats and the wheel. Storage is everywhere you look and the moulded non-skid deck is absolutely first-rate.
Comfort is truly important aboard and the Legend has a cherry laminate interior that not only looks good, but works for you as well. The eight berths are split between three double cabins and a saloon table conversion to a double berth. The table in the saloon can seat up to eight people. The gourmet galley with front opening fridge, two burner stove with oven, and generously sized working area is fully equipped with all that you need for catering on your cruise and will keep the most temperamental “chef” happy. There is a spacious heads compartment with shower. There is also central heating, hot water and a radio/CD player.
The yacht is powered by a Yanmar 29HP engine and should you require it the steering can be assisted by integrated Auto Pilot. The yacht has full electronic navigation including Chart Plotter/GPS, Navtex and DSC VHF. As with all our yachts, the Legend 36 has all safety equipment to MCA Category 2 charter standards.
“Lady Naomi” is a delightful yacht for anyone seeking a comfortable cruise on a high performance yach. t.arger groups may wish to consider chartering this yacht along with our Jeanneau 36i "Janet Macarthur” as a “matched pair” for exciting and comfortable cruising in company.
