The Yachts

Zara

Zara

 

Zara was designed by A.E. ‘Bill’ Luders, Jr., and built by Cheoy Lee Shipyards in Zhuhai, China. The elegant 47 is designed to be a fast cruising yacht, and its construction is the result of over 90 years of yacht-building knowledge and experience, utilising the best materials and perfected for the most rigid standards and longevity. The yacht is typical of all Cheoy Lee yachts; designed for performance and built for stamina. The strength and durability of her solid fiberglass construction is beautifully concealed above deck and below by rich Burma Teak overlays. Griffin and his crew will be praying for strong winds to propel her to Hobart in a reasonable time for Zara’s first Hobart. Griffin and Zara are regulars in the CYCA winter series, and also race with the Sydney Amateur Sailing Club.
