What our customers say about Racing Sparrow

Being a complete novice, I purchased your book a couple of years ago and built two racing sparrows. Building on this experience I then went on to build, from scratch, an IOM (Triple Crown design). I've since joined a local club and sail virtually every weekend. I would just like to thank you for your endeavours which have allowed me to enter a world I never thought was in my reach.

John Sterland, Australia

Coming upon your book, "Build your own Radio Controlled Yacht" in the Napier Public Library, I am hugely impressed. The combination of your superb photos and illustrations with your easy writing style make it a standout publication and I hope it does well for you.

Richard Spence, New Zealand

Thanks for an excellent design in your RG65. I trialled her again today in a solid 20 knots gusting higher. Even so in a steep chop and fingers off the rudder she drove upwind remarkably well, balanced perfectly. Very impressed that a model boat can handle that with a large rig. I found the book excellent. Ive built several big boats, plus a few skiffs and without that resource building such a good boat would have been impossible.

Hi all, Just finished an RG65 racing Sparrow. (I made an 80% size one a while ago, it's in the gallery). Standard hull with 1 layer of 50g glass and epoxy. Deck is 1.5mm balsa with veneer strips on top. Single hatch with rubber seals and 3 hold down screws.as I fitted the rudder servo into the recessed rear deck. Corona servos DS339HV digital for the sails and CS939 analogue for the rudder, I fitted a greased cork gasket under the rudder servo arm to waterproof the servo. Battery is a 2S 1000mAh lipo with a regulator for the Rx and rudder servo. Radio is Flysky CT6B. laminated ply fin with 2 layers of 50g glass, rudder from balsa with 1 layer of glass. Ballast and fin is 680g. Mast is slightly taller at 1050 so the sails are slightly different to fit within the 2250cm max. All up weight is 1150g. I'll get sailing pix very soon.

More about Racing Sparrow

When I was nine years old my father, Ross Heveldt taught me to sail down at Bucklands Beach in Auckland. My wee optimist dinghy was called 'The Racing Sparrow', the nickname my uncle Bruce Curry gave to me when I was a small boy. Apparently I had an abundance of energy.

I studied at Whanganui School of Design and have been a designer / developer since 1998. I live in New Zealand.

Best wishes and happy sailing, Bryn Heveldt.

Canterbury J Class Model Yacht

Canterbury J Class Model Yacht

model yachts for sale nz

A Brief History of the Canterbury J Class Model Yacht

Sailing at the Christchurch Model Yacht Club [CMYC] in 1996-1997 there was a small classic J Class model yacht named RANGER with a length of 1.2 metres and this was owned by Dave Heanly. This yacht was J1 which was eventually purchased from Dave and is now on display in the CMYC club rooms at Hagley Park.

Ranger J1

A group of CMYC members decided the J Class yacht would be ideal for easy fully rigged transport and sailing in weedy conditions at Lake Victoria.

The hull of number J1 was purchased from Model Boats and the sail plan designed by Hugh Hobden. An approach was made to purchase more hulls. Euan Sargison negotiated and another 9 hulls were purchased and sold very quickly.

The J Class Squadron was formed 2 Sep 1997. Two more hulls appeared making the total at this time twelve.

More hulls were in demand and the place that originally sold the hulls advised that the mould had been lost. After investigating it was found that the original hulls supplied had been taken from a Timaru J Class yacht.

It was decided to make a Canterbury mould with adjustments. The hull was deepened by 16mm and the lead reduced by 16mm and the trim weight put inside the hull. The J Class squadron purchased the new mould with a loan from Peter Vincent and the loan was repaid from hull sales. Number J13 was the first hull

To promote the sailing class three trophies were donated by Peter Vincent.

More Canterbury J Class historical information can be found HERE

IMG_2942.resized

The basic philosophy was to have an easily sailed and economically built  RC yacht’ based on a one design principles to provide good resale value, and with racing dependent more on the skipper rather than designer/builder skill.These objects have been attained and the Class has attracted many first time sailors, mostly from the retired ranks who share the common creed, “it sure beats gardening!”

The boat can be transported easily in the average car or station wagon fully rigged. Many boats have features of the original Canterbury J Class.

The “Wednesday Windlers” can muster fleets of 30 plus for their around-the-lake sailing on Lake Victoria. Why not visit the lake on a Wednesday? Members turn out, except in the most atrocious weather, and are pleased to “turn over the controls” to any interested spectator.

J-fleet_historic4.resized

377 hulls [December 2022] have been purchased and they are to be found in all areas of New Zealand and as far afield as the USA, Australia, Canada, Germany and the UK. It is a one-design yacht and all hull shells, keels and trim weights are made from moulds officially approved by the Canterbury J Association with an identification number moulded into the hull.

There are rules that, prohibit exotic materials, define a fixed minimum weight, strictly control dimensions in the three sizes of sail rigs.

The yacht can be bought as a kit or in separate pieces and assembled as the budget allows. This also allows members handy at making small components to make many of the parts and keep the price down. All parts are available: hulls white polyester, keels, brass fittings, and computer-generated sails, winches and radio gear. If you cannot find the part you want we will find it or we can make it at reasonable costs.

There is also an active and increasing North Island fleet sailing out of the T auranga Radio Sailing Club  Gilmour Lake  Waihi , [links to external sites] , Palmerston North and Auckland

New Zealand-built yachts for sale: six of the finest specimens

Although New Zealand is a small and relatively isolated country, she punches well above her weight in the superyacht industry. Her yards have an enviable reputation for building fine superyachts, both power and sail, that garner prestigious awards and feature prominently in regattas worldwide. We asked Ivor Wilkins, eminent writer and commentator on the New Zealand yachting scene for his comments on this phenomenon:

Ivor says that the foundation of New Zealand's superyacht success was built on a number of planets aligning simultaneously in the late 1980s and early 1990s. As an island nation in an isolated corner of the south west Pacific, New Zealand had a strong connection with the sea, both from a commercial and recreational standpoint.

In the mid-1980s, the first New Zealand superyacht yard was established by Neville Crichton, an extremely competitive, hard-driving sailor, who had cut his teeth in the cauldron of IOR racing.

Having made his fortune in the motor industry, he assembled a small team, leased space at an existing boatyard and built a 28m sloop, Chanel . That project led to the establishment of Alloy Yachts. Although Crichton relinquished his ownership of the yard quite early on, he became a frequent client, building a succession of six Dubois-design sloops and a Dubois motor yacht.

Yards like Yachting Developments, which specialises in composite construction, Fitzroy Yachts, McMullen & Wing and others created their own portfolios, and a slew of support industries sailmakers, spar makers, electronics companies, design studios flourished.

For a nation of just over 4 million people, this rise to prominence in a very exacting world market has much to do with culture. New Zealand's relative isolation has led to a practical, can-do approach which tackles problems head on and tends to embrace innovation.

Also, a strong connection with the sea has seen the marine industry populated by people who understand boats. Boatbuilding is not just a job. It is a passion.

Here we present six yachts built by New Zealand's premier yards and currently for sale.

Red Dragon 2008 51.7m 28 million

Red Dragon is a 51.7m sloop built by Alloy Yachts in 2008 to a design by Dubois with an ultra-luxury and contemporary interior by Wilmotte & Associates. This epic yacht is as sturdy as it is beautiful, with the ability for fast passages and long periods of autonomy. Red Dragon was a finalist in the 2008 Boat International World Superyacht Awards.

Listed for sale at 28 million, her broker, James Mcmaster at McMaster Yachts says, ' Red Dragon is an outstanding yacht. She is the culmination of experience gained by the owner aboard his previous R ed Dragon, the 42.9 metre Vitters-built sloop. She is in exceptional condition having just completed a substantial refit in Mallorca. This included painting her hull and topsides as well the removal of her mast and rigging. All the PBO components of her standing rigging have been replaced and she has new running rigging as well. It is important to note that, very unusually, the same captain, engineer and mate who were involved in her build have remained on board.'

Big Fish 2010 45m $29 million

When McMullen & Wing's 45m expedition yacht Big Fish burst onto the scene in 2010, the superyacht industry was rocked in its moorings. Here was a boat that could cruise the world's most glamorous destinations and hold its own alongside the most desirable yachts in the marina. But more than that, Big Fish was a boat packed with innovations and cutting-edge technology equipping it to pursue a more adventurous course, to take a new breed of thrill-seeker to any destination on earth, all in total luxury.

Fast forward 24 months and this vision of luxury expedition yachting has been enthusiastically endorsed by a virtual clean sweep of the superyacht world's major awards, and a string of successful charters stretching from the sun-kissed waters of the Caribbean and the south Pacific, to white-knuckle, once-in-a-lifetime adventures in both the Arctic and Antarctic seas.

Says her broker, Neil Cheston at Y.CO, ' Big Fish is quite unique in that many claim to be explorer yachts but few have anything like her storage capacity, luxury and 9,000 mile range. Less that two years old, she's already covered over 50,000 nautical miles and ventured to every corner of the globe. Able to carry stores and supplies for 12 weeks at sea, Big Fish is in fantastic shape.'

Inmocean 2008 41m $13.5 million

The 41m sloop Inmocean , built by Fitzroy Yachts in 2008, is a classic style yacht. Her pretty, easy flowing sheer line with long classic ends promotes a gentle motion at sea and keeps the decks dry.

Her interior, designed by Adam Lay Studio, has the owner and guest accommodation forward in three cabins while the crew is aft in three cabins. Designed for long ocean passages and off-the-beaten-track cruising, she turns heads wherever she goes. Inmocean is striking, timeless and a joy to sail.

Toby Walker has her listed for sale at Dubois Yachts asking $13.5 million and says, 'She is a unique yacht, combining the very latest in superyacht systems and technology, but unlike many modern yachts she has the lines and style of a classic. Grace and comfort make Inmocean one of the friendliest yachts on which to cruise, coupled with a very high build quality from Fitzroy Yachts.'

Aime Sea 1994 35.11m 5.5 million

Aime Sea (Ex Corinthian ) was the fourth Dubois design built by Alloy Yachts when she was launched in 1994. She combines good sailing performance with a versatile layout and has a wonderful, light and airy maple interior by Redman Whiteley Dixon.

Aime Sea has recently benefited from an extensive refit and is in first-class condition with all her systems maintained to the highest standards. She is MCA compliant and is commercially registered in the Cayman Islands.

Her broker, Simon Goldsworthy at Camper & Nicholsons International comments: 'Benefiting from an undoubted pedigree, her carbon rig means Aime Sea sails superbly. Having been neglected under her previous ownership the yacht has benefited from substantial investment by the current owner since the purchase in 2008, and Aime Sea has been returned to superb mechanical and technical condition throughout.

'All that remains for a new owner is to repaint her hull and superstructure in the colour of their choice to complement the rig, mechanical and systems refit already undertaken. Her more than enviable charter record over the last few years also gives potential purchasers the option of offsetting a considerable amount of the annual running costs. At the current asking price of 5.5 million she provides excellent value for money to a new owner looking for a trouble-free investment. The owner has now finished using her and is keen to receive offers.'

Eclipse 1991 32.6m 5.5 million

Eclipse , launched as Esprit in 1991, was the first Dubois design to be built by Alloy Yachts and she began a long and highly successful association. All technical areas have been either upgraded or refitted. A large volume yacht, Eclipse is in turnkey condition and ready for worldwide cruising.

Nick Dean has her listed for sale at Ocean Independence and says, '_Eclipse_ is a classic Alloy that is a proven worldwide cruiser. The current owner has sailed her across the Pacific and Atlantic on many occasions and yet she is still presented in truly fantastic condition. All new rig and sail wardrobe in 2011 means she is right up to top specification and ready for further world cruising.'

Neptune 2004 25.6m 2,957,000

Built by Fitzroy Yachts in 2004, Neptune is designed for extended ocean cruising and is fabricated in 'Alustar' aluminium as a custom yacht tailor-made to the owner's specific requirements.

The spacious accommodation includes a three-cabin layout aft, the owner and all guest's cabins having private en suite heads. The two forward crew cabins also have separate heads. The generous main saloon provides a dining area to starboard and comfortable lounge. The deckhouse incorporates an additional dining area, chart table and inside steering position. Fully retractable side windows provide a pleasant open aspect and enhance the panoramic views afforded from the deckhouse.

Interior joinery is American walnut to complement the red leather upholstery and other quality textiles used throughout. Two Charles Eames designed loungers placed in the lower saloon complete a very luxurious fit out.

Bernard Gallay at Bernard Gallay Yacht Brokerage has her listed for sale and says, 'Designed by the famous German naval architects Judel Vrolijk, Neptune is a true long distance sailing yacht with luxurious accommodation and high quality equipment. The interior is very well fitted indeed with a proper deck house, leather settees and a welcoming atmosphere

'She is in spotless condition and with her recent reduced asking price of 2.957 million, she is very attractive on the current brokerage market.'
