Arguably one of the best known of all of the Hoek designs and certainly one of the best built with full custom construction to ABS classification in aluminium by the legendary Vitters shipyard in the Netherlands. Not to be confused with her wood epoxy sisters, with her robust-yet-light aluminium construction TINTAGEL was conceived with a plan for world cruising and explorations to high latitudes. Short-handed cruising is both safe and effortless thanks to her hydraulic deck winches and cutter rig with furling headsails.

For those wishing to race, TINTAGEL boasts enhanced upwind performance thanks to her winged keel which also keeps her draft down to a very practical 2.40m, along with the protection of a fully-skegged rudder. In racing mode, TINTAGEL has won the Round Admiralty Island Race in Alaska on two occasions and her owner has also enjoyed short-handed racing in the Mediterranean where the yacht is now based.

Below decks, TINTAGEL benefits from comfortable and spacious accommodation for two couples in two cabins and is finished in luxurious solid Honduras Mahogany with contrasting white lacquered bulkheads, light maple flooring and white Corian counters. Her forward cabin and interior spaces were extensively remodelled as part of a 2015 refit. Detailed owner’s manual 2023 by Spinta Studio available upon request.
