I may be mistaken but I think that is a Phil Bolger (RIP) design.

I do know some about Lang yachts. I was looking at Lang yacht called Jireh I believe that was the name of the vessel.

It is a custom built 67' long range motor Lang yacht. It was built in 1991 had a 10' extension in 2001. There was another extensive refit in 2003-2005.The hull has a flared bow with a bulbous extension and a modified V underbelly with twin rolling chock chines to reduce roll. It also (I believe) had twin screws if I recall right, but I may be wrong on that. Brand I do forget it was a number of years ago when I looked at her.

It did seem to handle well as I recall, however it was not my cup of tea for a number of reasons but my taste and your taste are different so do not hold that against the vessel. Once I ruled the vessel out of my list, I really did not look into the full history of Lang yachts. Sorry about that.

I hope that is some help to you.

Happy cruising to you.

Cheers.

Never heard of Lang boats but the boat in the pic is very unusual. She has a very hollow forfoot and a very wide chine amidships and very slab sided topsides midships to aft. The slab side is not very attractive but other lines are very nice. The very wide chines should give her good initial stability depending on beam. Probably has soft chines. I'm having a little trouble relating to the Phil Bolger connection. There's both a John Atkin and Phil Bolger design that looks a bit like this but they lack the wide chine amidships.

Personally I think straight lines on a boat re the chines, topsides or gunwale/sheer is to be avoided .. both for appearence and function.

A recent member that goes by the name of Autumn Dream showed-up in the thread about Great Harbour yachts a week or so ago. His Avatar sported a Lang Custom 32....beautiful looking vessel. That's the only ref to Lang I've noticed on the Forum. Was this you with another handle? Here's the link. Scroll down for his posts.

Johnny.


I did find some of my old notes on the Lang motor yacht. The designer was Ted Lang and his son. Looking over the my notes, I did see where they started in Massachusetts then moved to N. Carolina. From there they closed shop. In my notes I did write.


"It's heavy like tank and handle only okay, but not as well as other vessel I was looking at!"


But as I said. your tastes will be different from mine.
That is about all that is worth saying from my notes..


Better of luck and happy cruising to you.


Cheers.

Thank you

Thanks for all the replies I've had the boat for months and have been researching them since then I've found atleast a dozen ads on Google and other facts about them and a crazy thing happened with the research I actually found the original Ted Lang naval architect in virginia and he still has a business call Lang Yachts Since 1925 and I called the phone number Ted himself answered the phone and we talked for a couple hours I was absolutely amazed if you read everything I have he had a lot of patents and many boats under his belt

The ads I found from the 60s for lang boat sales advertised up to 90 sport fish on hand and one of the first travel lifts before they built fiberglass lang yachts but what a sharp guy still at 84 years old and very nice also

Hi Johnny
Here is what Information I have on our Lang 32 Autumn Dream. Here is a copy of a response I posted in my blog about Autumn Dream when I received a question from another Lang owner. As you probably know Autumn Dream is for sale but if she does not sell I will not be heart broken. We enjoy her, she is comfortable, day and safe. She handles reasonably well in a seaway. She rolls on a beam sea but rides nice punching into the waves. Only mechanical issue we have had is the damper plate on the transmission going south. The engine has been great!
Here is the info from my blog entry. Hope this helps.

Well this blog covers many things but it was initially created to talk about our trawler MV Autumn Dream – Today I received the following comment and questions from fellow Lang owner’s Brad and Holly. So I thought I would use this entry to answer some of their questions. Actually they are the only other Lang owners in the world – no just kidding – From what I know Lang mostly built sport fishing boat’s not pilothouse trawlers like Autumn Dream. I may have the only Lang 32 Pilothouse trawler in the world. So to start answering their questions here goes.

Q:I’m intrigued by your boat… had no idea Lang had made a trawler. A: Prior to finding Autumn Dream for sale on the yacht world website we did not even know there was a boat manufacturer named Lang. We were told our Lang 32 came out of a factory in Canada and may have been a one-off. I have not seen anything else like her in this size range.

Q: I’m curious if you could share how yours is powered and what sort of performance you’ve seen. We’ve got a two-stroke Detroit Diesel Series 71. A: Autumn Dream has a single engine Bedford Diesel that was maranized by Palmer Company of Cobb Cos CT. She is 165 BHP engine, normally aspirated. We have about 3500 hours on the engine. She was maintained in excellent condition. I only hope to continue to be as good a steward of her engine as the previous owner was! With this engine we typically run at about 6 knots (1800 rpm) and if we push her to say 2200 rpm we can get 8 knots out of her on a good day. Not very fast, but we’re along for the ride. At her comfortable cruising speed of 6 to 7 knots we burn an estimated 2 gallon/hr, but I have not actually measured her fuel consumption, but it is reasonable.

Q:Also, do you have more photos? I’m curious how the interior has been handled around the (rather pinched) bow section. A: Check out my old blog Kevin and Beth in Ashland there are some more photos here. The interior has the master stateroom forward and 4 steps down forward of the pilothouse. The master stateroom has an almost queen sized bed on the port side at the bottom of the ladder as you enter the forward space. Also on the starboard side opposite the bed is a “sofa” and a hanging locker. Forward of the master is the head. We have a door between the head and master. The head is in the forepeak of the boat but contains a vacuflush toilet (now see the blog about a crappy weekend) sink and a separate shower stall. Forward of the shower stall where the hull is very pinched in there is a locker and forward of that the anchor locker. The layout made very good use of the space. I’ll pace a few more photos of her in this blog and this weekend I’ll take some of the forward space and the main saloon. Autumn Dream also is equipped with two solar panels to let us run a fridge and not worry about killing our batteries. Hope this gives you a better insight to our Autumn Dream.

Let me know any other questions....

Thank you for the info I appreciate it

I spoke to Ted again today and asked about your boat he said he only recalls building one pilot house trawler and it was in Canada so I'm guessing that's the one I would love to meet and talk to any lang owner and all if possible I couldn't find any pics of your boat on the link but then again I'm not to good with electronics and first time in a forum but if there are any other lang owners I'd love to see pics of them like I stated earlier not to good with forum yet but if email might be easier that would work for me any lang owner who would like to trade pics

67' Lang Yachts Custom pilothouse expedition


Click thumbnails for larger image view.

Here is the Lang I looked at Johnny. If Mr. Lang said he only built one pilothouse trawler then this must be it. As you can see it was in Vancouver. That is where I looked at her. She has sold since then but she may still be around that area. Hope that helps.

Happy cruising to you.

Nice spaces in that big Lang. Helm looks like serious sea-going intentions but wow...what a square transom..at least what you can see.

Hello,
I am owner of a custom built trawler based on a Lang hull. It is a 30 feet aft cabin trawler with flybridge. I bought it recently and I am more than pleased with it. It ismpowered by a Acadia diesel engine, naturally aspirated. At 1800rpm it moves me at a bit more than 7 knots for an average of 1.5 gal/h, pretty good for my wallet and I like to take my time when cruising
