Inspired by the boat Bystander that used to get the J Class Endeavour and crew to the race course in the time that the J’s did not have their own engine, this boat oozes elegance. The intention of this design is to be used as a canal boat in the City of Amsterdam as well as to explore the rest of Holland. For silent river cruising she will have an electric engine and to overcome the longer distances on the lakes the boat is able to go planing at 25 kts with a Yanmar 230 hp inboard diesel.
The layout provides a small double bed in front and has a toilet and small pantry inside. Outside the doghouse is enclosed in front with windows that can fold down for fresh air and the aft end is open to the large cockpit that can accommodate many guests or have a removable cockpit table with director chairs to cruise in style with its typical Hoek Design exterior details of the teak work.
