In a collaborative effort with Lager Yachts, Van Gorkom Yacht Design is working to develop a new luxury 80 foot performance cruiser. The sleek, powerful lines and elegant overhangs of this stylish design are complimented by its modern deck arrangement.

The center cockpit of the Lager 80 has seating for ten with a stow-away table for outdoor dining. The separate helm station has a commanding position featuring twin 44″ wheels and consoles with a full array of instrumentation. There is a separate access from the crews quarters to this area, as well as easy access to the stern platform from the after cockpit.

The latest state-of-the-art deck hardware, along with hydraulic winches and furling systems, in-boom mainsheet control, and a non-overlapping jib will make handling this yacht a breeze. In addition, the carbon fiber mast will incorporate four sets of swept back spreaders, no runners, and no baby stay.

The focal point is an elegant 360-degree-view salon. It features a dining table that comfortably seats ten, a dry/wet bar, an entertainment center, and a well-equipped office area. A day head is conveniently located just off the salon.

The spacious forward master cabin has a king-size berth which can be converted into two sea berths whilst underway. It features a roomy head with a separate shower stall. There are two guest cabins, each with double berths and their own head. The double crew cabins, crew head, and navigation station are aft with separate access to the after cockpit and galley.

The gourmet galley is equipped with all the latest culinary tools to produce five-course feasts including a four-burner stovetop and oven, a 3/4 refrigerator, a vertical freezer, a microwave/convection oven, plenty of dry storage, and a trash compactor. Adding to the domestic features, the yacht boasts has a washer/dryer, air conditioning, and 24volt DC and 110volt AC power.

The Lager 80 is powered by a Volvo 200hp diesel engine and has a cruising speed of twelve knots. Six hundred gallons of fuel give this yacht a powering range of approximately 650 miles. There is a 20kw and a 12kw diesel generator on board to fulfil all the necessary power requirements.

The overall theme for the construction of the Lager 80 is high-strength and lightweight building techniques and materials. This is achieved by utilizing a wet-preg glass/aramid layup over a high-tech core material in an epoxy resin matrix and vacuum bagged. Carbon fiber will be used for high-load local reinforcement in areas such as chain plates, longitudinal stringers and transverse frames.

There is little doubt that the Lager 80, with her elegant lines and powerful underbody, will set the standard in luxury performance cruising.
