Project: Hartman 24 Livingstone

Hartman a Dutch company which has roots into shipbuilding and maritime transport from 1775 and is today based on the island of Urk has decided to enter into the yachting sector, presenting itself with a host of projects and a two range offer.  The 24 Livingstone is the first of the projects presented and comes from a design of Niels van Oostenbrugge and Albert Abma of Sheerline.  The looks of the series is inspired to luxury liners of the early twentieth century, while the name is a tribute to Dr. David Livingstone famous for his travels around Africa and work against slave trade.  Dr. Livingstone also sailed the first steel boat ever build in 1858. The Hartman 24 Livingstone is to be build of steel.  Standard power for Livingstone 24 will come from twin Man 345hp with hull one being powered by a single Man unit of the same power which delivers a cruise speed of eleven knots.
