Bo Kooling

Bo Kooling –┬áPleasure Craft

Bo Kooling was launched in 2006 for former NBA basketballer Luc Longley.
Luc first came to Southerly Designs in 2003 to discuss a custom designed adventure yacht. Growing up in Perth and spending many yours in his youth on the water Luc had observed many of the Southerly rock lobster boats in action and was impressed with their reputation for great performance & legendary seakeeping in Western Australia’s sometimes cruel seas.

Over the next 3 years Southerly developed a design with Luc suited to his exacting requirements.
Built by Peter Milner Yachts in Henderson, Bo Kooling features a superb layout suited to adventure cruising backed up by commercial grade engineering systems to give peace of mind over long voyages.
A unique feature of the vessel is twin heavy duty aluminium keels bonded to the composite hull structure, this gives supreme protection to the rudders & propellers and allows the vessel to beached in shallow water areas with a high tidal variation.

Bo Kooling was a resounding success & has since cruised some of the most beautiful and inaccessible locations in Australia & South East asia.
