One of the most stunning designs of Hoek Design Naval Architects.
Copihue is a result of the combination of hundreds of thousands of miles of ocean-going experience, together with the expertise of Andre Hoek’s design office in Edam.
When Andre was approached by the owner, it was to design an easily handled, attractive family sailing yacht with a circumnavigation in mind. Aluminium was chosen as the hull material and a traditional aluminium, not carbon, mast was chosen for strength and durability.
The traditional lines and long overhangs belie a modern underwater section, with a deep fin keel and spade rudder under water to enhance performance and manoeuvrability.
Her modern, skeg hung rudder is immediately aft of a fully variable pitch four bladed propeller.
Her decks are clean and sweeping, with a low and well placed aft deckhouse, emphasising her classic appearance. Ample use of teak adds to the classic atmosphere of the yacht inside and out.
An interior layout was chosen designed with family cruising in mind. The warm, open and spacious interior is a testament to the designers and to the skill of Claasen Jachtbouw of Zaandam, in Holland, who fitted out the interior.
The interior is classical and cosy, but light with teak and white painted panelling and teak floors throughout to an exceptional high standard.
She sleeps six in three cabins, with a seventh crew member in an additional pilot berth.
Six years after her launching, Copihue has safely completed five Atlantic crossings, a Pacific crossing and has cruised to very high latitudes, both North of the Arctic Circle and as far South as Cape Horn. Her performance has raised eyebrows and her stunning looks have turned heads wherever she has gone.
Throughout her circumnavigation the yacht has been maintained in absolute new condition, but before being delivered to her new owner she will have been repainted and her rig overhauled.
