Description: "Lola" (originally "Ariane") was comissioned by a dutch couple back in 1970. Plans of a successful ocean racer design were purchased from "Sparkman & Stephens", brought to Holland, and modified slightly by dutch naval architect "Dick Koopmans". The steel hull and superstructure were built by "Massdam-Dekker" yard in Holland and then moved to the "Royal Huisman" yard for completion and fitting out before being launched in 1972. The dutch are famous for producing high quality steel boats and "Lola" is a perfect example of one of these works of craftsmanship.

The previous owner spared no expense on an extensive yard restoration on the U.S East Coast between 2010-2012 to bring her back to "New" condition from top to bottom. Including all new electrical, electronics, rigging, sails, mechanical systems, paint, varnish, etc. (the list is too long). After finishing the restoration he had her shipped to the west coast where he continued to liveaboard and sail her locally while keeping her in "show boat" condition. In our search for a cruising ketch we came across "Lola" and immediately fell in love with her. In March 2017 we purchased her with the intention to use her for what she was built for, some serious around the world cruising. We have sailed her from the West coast to Hawaii, the Marquesas, the Tuamotus, and are currently in Tahiti. "Lola" is a serious offshore cruiser, capable of handling whatever weather comes her way, we can tell you that from experience. She is easily singlehanded, and sails like a dream. Her large sail area gets her up to speed quick and the 6 tons of lead ballast in the keel keeps her stiff. Her long fin keel and skeg hung rudder make for a responsive helm while still allowing her to track well and self-steer with well trimmed sails. We have enjoyed the last 2 years sailing her and are reluctant to put her on the market, but we're expecting a new additon to the family soon and are heading back to shore for this next adventure.
