The 14 m. Lemsteraak ‘de Noorderzon’ was built by Hoekstra / Heerlien to a Hoek Design and was launched in 2005.
The design was based on the experience of the Hoek Design office who now have over 300 new builds of these yachts to their design afloat.
The " Noorderzon" was designed with racing and cruising in mind and has the potential to do well in regatta’s. In addition she features very spacious living quarters such as a large salon/ galley, large master cabin and a single berth cabin in the bow. The salon table is mounted on a telescopic leg. In lower position, the table represents the basis for a large double bed.
The many stainless steel parts such as chain plates, capping rail flat bar, windlass en halyard winches, sailwinch bases, rudder tiller, bollards etc,... assure a lasting fresh and clean appearance on deck.
The Noorderzon represents an exceptional quality of joinery work in pear wood with mahogany flooring as produced by Heerlien. The teak decks and classic skylights, oak leeboards and rudder, oregon hollow spars and oak carved exterior joinery are stunning, to say the least.
The interior includes panelling in pear wood finished in gloss varnish, in combination with white satin Oregon grooved ceilings and satin varnished mahogany flooring, creating a very special and warm atmosphere in the yacht.
The yacht has been kept in great condition.
