Lloyds yacht club are fortunate to own Lutine, an X-55 Danish designed and built cruiser racer. At 55 feet and weighing in at 16 tonnes, with a carbon fibre rig, it is fast around the race circuit whilst having all the luxuries one would expect of a high end cruising yacht. Built in 2010 and acquired by the club in 2014 Lutine is maintained to the highest standards by our club skipper with a little help from club members.

Encouraging sailing in the Lloyd’s Insurance Market since 1938

Racing on Lutine

Lutine and LLYC provide a wonderful opportunity for members to take part in some of the most prestigious sailing races in the Solent calendar – both inshore and offshore

You do not need to be an experienced racer, one of the key benefits of Lutine’s size is that you can join a crew of mixed experience and combined with instruction from your qualified skipper, the learning curve can be as steep as you wish!

Club weekends on Lutine

Any Club member may book a weekend designated as a Club Weekend via the booking page and a member may invite up to 2 non-members for just a small additional charge.

The weekends are set up around the wishes of the crew although obviously weather dependent, and all are skippered by a hugely experienced Club Skipper (all of whom are volunteers) or possibly by the Club’s professional skipper.

Destinations vary hugely – from a weekend cruising the Solent to round the island, cross-Channel and westwards to Poole or Weymouth for example.

Charter Lutine

Lutine is available to members of the insurance community, clients and service companies. Chartering Lutine is a highly cost effective way to provide corporate entertainment that is very different to the more run of the mill alternatives. No previous sailing experience is necessary – you will have an enjoyable day on the water irrespective of whether it is your first time out or whether you and your guests are seasoned sailors.

Longer charters involving over night stays can also be arranged.
