Yacht Refit News – Chinese New Year 2009


As we enter into the Year of the Ox we are announcing several significant upgrades to the yacht, including the laying of a new deck, making the schooner Raja Laut better than ever for all of our friends and guests.

For the deck no expense or effort was spared, with several months in the preparation and construction. Raja Laut has 90m2 of deck space and every inch has been replaced with high grade Burmese Teak.

The results were well worth it, as the deck makes a real impression on the eye, as well as under(bare)foot, the moment you step aboard, with light shades of golden brown and a lovely grain.

Improvements to the sails and rigging were undertaken at the same time – new lighter gaff booms made from timber, more than 300 meters of rope, 20 new blocks, canvas re-cut, and an improved configuration all making sailing faster, simpler and more elegant.

To find more information on the Raja Laut and her construction go to Raja Laut yacht specifications page.

Best Wishes & Happy Niu (Ox) Year!
