Hi Pepe. Welcome. I am from the LM country - Denmark and is also sailing a LM27. The hatches you have on the deck seems strange to me. Can you post some poctures of the inside?
Hi jadane, the hatch at the bow was handmade by last owner, a wooden frame and methacrylate. Which pictures de you want? the bow hatch from inside or general pistures of the inside? This weeked I will go to the marina and I can do them.
Hello, I joined this forum in August 2014 and Charles informed me I have the privilege of being the 100th member. I joined because I had identified the LM as the boat that would best suit our needs. I am now pleased to say that My wife and I are the new owners of "Stringalong" a fine bilge keel LM 30 that has been used and cared for in South Wales for many years. We will be transporting her to Dartmouth where we have sailed for the past 10 years and look forward to enjoying many years of cruising in the South a West with family and friends. We hope to meet other LM owners during these travels. Best wishes, Chris.
Hi Charlie We are thinking of replacing our Drascomeb Lugger with something more waterproof!! Have seen the LM website and think these boats may be a possibility. We see your boat is at Wolverstone and we have our boat at Shotley! We wondered if there is any chance of catching up with you and having a look at your boat and picking your brains as to whether a LM25/26/ 27 for us. Best wishes Robert
I am owner of Désirée, LM Vitesse 35. Built in 1990/91 an bought as my first new boat. We are sailing in the Danish/Sweedish/Northern Germany sea area. Here a Picture of our admirable lady when she was prepared for the season 2015.
Hi folks, After many years of Moody ownership my wife and l are now in the middle of purchasing a LM 30. We hope to complete the deal in a few days and then sail her to her new home in Southampton. Must admit though it did not take long to decide that the LM was the right boat for us - just trying to decide whether it should be a 28 or 30 took the time !
I don't know if you already have found the boat of your dreams, but elsewhere try to look on the Boats for sale here in Denmark the price has dropped very much over the last couple of years, and there is many boats on the market. Especially the LM28 dropped around 50% over the last 7-8 years, and it is possible to buy them as low as £15.000 - £20.000
We have now found the boat ( hopefully of our dreams ) on the south coast of England. l have been watching the european market very closely and if l had not been successful in the UK then l would have certainly headed across the North Sea as the £/Euro/DKK exchange rate is very good at the moment.
I am in the South of France, near the Mediterranean sea and the canal du Midi. I am looking for a boat able to travel on both. I was thinking of an LM 24 because I would prefer a small boat (24 of 25ft).
I would like to be able to go to Corsica or Balearic islands. Corsica is 100 miles from Nice in France so the boat would be at 50 miles from shore at the furthest.
LMs are not common here. I have some questions but I do not know if I can ask them in this section of if I should open a new topic in the "Advice Sought section". I have already read a lot of useful information on this forum.
Anne. It doesn't matter where you post your questions, but opening a new topic in Advice Sought is probably best. Presumably you will have to lower and raise the mast fairly frequently on the Canal du Midi, so you may wish to ask about that. I hope you find the boat you are looking for. Good luck!
we have owned Freya since 2001 and sailed out of Christchurch . She is of the open plan design . She has sailed from the East coast to the Scilly islands and N Brittany etc . She was re-engined with a Beta Marine 28 hp in about 2005 and to our horror the drive plate sheared off last year with no explanation or interest from the manufacturers ! We bought the boat in Denmark and it was brought over by lorry at additional cost but still a saving on UK prices at the time .
