Large volume 35ft sportsfisher with interior dimensions closer to a 40ft boat. Very well equipped and with just one owner since new. The owner will consider part-exchange with smaller centre console fisherman.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
LILIA was launched in 2009 and is a particularly well-maintained example with just 790hrs on her engines. Her specification highlights include:-
“The Luhrs 35 Convertible offers a fascinating choice of propulsion. There are three options in conventional shaft drive: 440hp and 480hp Yanmars, and the ever-popular 480hp Cummins QS8; plus either Volvo’s IP-S500 or IPS-600 at 370hp and 435hp (each) respectively.
Our test boat had the IPS-500 option. This installation uses short jack-shafts between the engines and IPS units to move the motors forward for better weight distribution.
In calm water inside the Gold Coast Seaway, our GPS recorded a top speed of 30.8 knots at 3500rpm, which was a whole half-knot quicker than performance figures provided by Luhrs’ Australian importer and distributor, BlueWater Power Yachts.
We also saw fuel consumption on the test boat’s instrumentation around 90 litres per hour (total burn for both engines) at 22 knots and 2800rpm, which I think is close enough to the supplied figures of 91.4 litres per hour at 22 knots and 2800rpm. Volvo maintains their IPS-500 units are equivalent to 500hp engines with conventional shaft drives. This claim is hardly refuted by a graph on the Luhrs website that shows the (370hp) IPS-500 actually manages a slightly higher top speed than one of these boats powered by the 480hp Yanmar option. IPS-500s add just over $12,000 to the cost of the 480hp Yanmar option, and $5500 more than the Cummins option, so it all adds up to some serious thinking for potential buyers.
[…] They’re a pretty impressive set of figures from a boat that impresses in every way. Luhrs have been building fine bluewater fishing boats for over 60 years – and it shows – 35-foot bluewater fishing boats simply don’t get any better than this”.
