Adrian Lewis launched this new vessel from the drawing board of enduring and successful designers, Judel/Vrolijk in November last year, making the step up from his previous 39ft David Lyons boat. Constructed in Germany by Hanse yachts, Geomatic is a weighty cruiser built with comfort in mind. It has galley equipment and a cellar that would be the envy of every boat in the fleet, ensuring her crew is well catered for.
Earlier this year, Geomaticmade the long trek north from Mornington in the south of Victoria to compete in Audi Hamilton Island Race Week, where she finished 18th in Cruising Division 2. It provided the opportunity for some crew familiarisation with the boat and to log a lot of ocean miles. Lewis is joined by a mixture of recent and long standing crew who look forward to the trip south. Won't be a world beater, but she will be a stayer.
