Lidgard 35 The Yachtmans Speedboat.

Garry Lidgard, Lidgard Yacht Designs, was commissioned to design a replacement for the original owner of our earlier 32 ft day boat design. It was decided that this vessel would have mahogany decks with the hull shell to be painted, the main reasons for this being aesthetics, ongoing maintenance and cost at build.
Generous flared bow sections and freeboard ensure a much smoother and drier ride than normally experienced. The cockpit, sun deck and luxurious double berth and head are a balance of comfort, practicality and generous space. A custom made wheel and comprehensive instrumentation make this boat a joy to drive.
40+ knots has been achieved with a pair of in-line six cylinder Detroit 300 hp turbo-charged diesel motors. These engines offer vibration free performance and are supported on robust bearers and housed in a thickly insulated engine space. The sun deck hatches have been designed to open completely to offer total engine accessibility for general maintenance.
Large areas of the hull have been retained as sealed, positive buoyancy chambers and all open deck spaces are self draining. Low, vertical, center of gravity coupled with high stability ensures fast and safe passage in open waters.
The Lidgard 35 decks have the appearance of a classic timber boat. In actual fact, the 35 is constructed with high performance epoxy composite materials, overlaid with exquisite 8 mm mahogany deck, and an impeccable clear coated deck and high gloss two pack hull shells.
The hull is constructed with Composite strip Planking, a combination of balsa cored strips in the bottom and foam cored strips in the topsides. The strip planking was pre made with a uni-directional E-fibreglass on either side of the cores. The unidirectional fibre allowed the planks to conform readily to the complex contours of this design and increased the stability when turning the hull.
For the 35 edge gluing of the strip planks was done with a high strength, epoxy adhesive, and a laminating Epoxy was used to laminate E-fibreglass stitched reinforcements to the inside and outside to complete the hull structure, and for taping throughout the boat.
Decks, bulkheads, interior parts were also constructed with pre made foam Panels with designer specified laminates to best meet weight targets and stress/impact loads.
The result of all this is a super tough, lightweight, superbly built boat of great style and quality.
