The Lynx 29 is not a common yacht, but is nevertheless well worth looking at if you are looking at Moody 28s or 29s, Sadler 29s, or similar high-volume family cruisers. Although the example illustrated here is wheel-steered, most of these boats were tiller-steered. As with the Leisure 29, the engines were single or twin-cylinder Volvos with Saildrive.

Lynx 29 (Leisure 29)

The Lynx 29 was designed by Frank Pryor for Jaguar Yachts. The design evolved from the Leisure 27, which was then enlarged to create the better performing Leisure 29, of which about 30 were built

 

After production of Leisure 29s ceased, the moulds were taken over by Jaguar Yachts, who marketed it as the Lynx 29. It has a slightly modified interior from the Leisure branded boats, with extensive inner GRP mouldings. Less than ten were built. Externally she has clean modern lines, and deep and fine-sectioned bilge keels with a 45% ballast ratio for good performance.

Both bilge keel and fin keel versions were built, bilge-keelers being more common. Most were originally tiller steered, though this yacht has been fitted with wheel steering.
