boot Düsseldorf 2024: International motor boat premieres that inspire
Absolute 52 Fly
The Absolute 52 Fly is a luxurious vessel at 16.76 m length – boasting dimensions that live up to the Italian shipyard’s self-professed claim of being ground-breaking and pioneering. The shipyard calls this the “Absolute Direction”. This includes features on the 52 foot and three largely flush decks with a feel of comfort and space otherwise only found on much larger yachts.
The huge space available is reflected by the full-beam layout of the master cabin in the bow, which ensures perfect privacy. The VIP guest cabin midships offers so much space it could be considered a second master. Another guest cabin and the crew cabin provide retreats from the generously spaced open deck areas which turn the boat into a sea-view villa for 14 persons. The only difference being that thanks to the 2 Volvo-Penta engines (D8-IPS800) the crew decide anew at any time which bay offers the most beautiful vistas.

AMT 165 R
The Finnish shipyard extends its side-console boat line to include a medium-sized model. Those looking for a multi-purpose boat under 5 metres are even well served with the standard version. The boat for 5 passengers comes with a choice of fibreglass or aluminium hull. Likewise, you can choose between a bow section for sun worshippers or fishing. The standard equipment includes bow light, fixed fuel tank and soft deck. The AMT 165 is rated for a 50 to 70 hp outboard motor. Meaning 30 knots are no problem. The large-surface windshield and the especially non-slip decking also provide safety at higher speeds.

By reworking the Axopar 29 the “Adventure Boating” shipyard is giving itself and its customers a big gift to mark its 10th anniversary. It has consistently implemented its slogan “Innovate or Die” with advanced industrial design, larger seating and lounging areas, increased efficiency and variable layout options. The Axopar 29 will be available in three versions: Cross Cabin, Sun Top and Spyder. Axopar also steps up in terms of power – introducing Mercury Verado V10-powered engines. The bigger on-board fuel capacity means that the power increases and the range is also extended. The new Axopar 29 is worthy of an anniversary.

Azimut Magellano 60
Introducing the three-storey Magellano 60, the Italian shipyard Azimut has succeeded in squaring the circle: racy, Italian elegance without compromising on space. To enhance the experience of openness without boundaries, special emphasis was placed on panorama windows and unobstructed views. Azimut calls the cockpit “Infinity Terrace” – with spectacular views of the sea thanks to a parapet-free aft glass. To not lose travel comfort during quick sprints either, the Magellano 60 is equipped with trim flaps. Two 760 hp engines bring her up to 26 knots top speed. Such a chic powerboat, however, is preferably paraded at walking pace.

Bavaria SR 36 Open Top
A success line to feature in its entirety at boot Düsseldorf. Bavaria has convinced the professional testers with their SR models. The SR 33 was nominated French Powerboat of the Year in 2023. The SR 36 received the Best of Boats Award the same year. Launching the SR 36 Open Top, Bavaria now makes an offer to all powerboaters who like it even more agile and sportily open. She will be displayed as a German premiere in Düsseldorf. Presented as a counterpart will be the comfortable SR 41 with two roomy cabins and two separate bathrooms. With the S 30 and R 40 Fly Bavaria finally completes their range from sporty to elegant.
Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH Hall 1 / B37
Bénéteau Antares 12
Bénéteau adds a new flagship to its long-lived Antares line. Designed as a family cruiser, the Antares 12 places full emphasis on the biggest possible diversity and homeliness. The all-glass saloon and cockpit are on the same level. With saloon doors opened, a large, spacious terrace emerges which can be extended even further by fold-out bathing platforms. Above the salon with pantry, the Flybridge features an additional seating area with L-shaped seating and wet bar. The master cabin has an ensuite bathroom. A glance at the propulsion reveals that the term cruiser is an understatement: three Mercury Verado V8 with 300 hp each can be installed.
Bénéteau Hall 1 / B71 – C71
The Norwegians at Cormate know their stuff when it comes to powerboats. Their T28 is as classic in design as she is innovative in terms of technology. Her particularly stiff and lightweight sandwich structure gives her a top speed of 72 knots. But she is not only good at speedboating but also invites powerboaters to relaxing holidays. Full teak deck, water-flushed toilet, fridge under the sitting bench, twin berth cabin in the forecastle and a music system with subwoofers provide the T8 a premium onboard experience. At the helmstand complete with 12-Inch Simrad plotter you can sit or lean against the flip up bolsters – depending on your current mood.
Cormate AS Hall 4 / D21
Cormate Chase 35
The Norwegians know how to build powerboats – as they have proven for almost two decades (and again with the T28 at boot Düsseldorf). Their new Chase 35 targets all those who find a “power-only boat” too radical and do not want to forego the benefits of a day cruiser. The Chase 35 manages to bridge the gap between performance and comfort.
Her re-designed hull makes for better stability while allowing the use of twin high-performance outboard motors with 565 hp at the same time. This brings the Chase 35 up to 82 knots top speed. The surface vessel appears classic (right through to its pastel paintwork) but offers as much usable space as a bowrider. A swim platform featuring a bench with upholstered back rest makes it perfectly clear that holiday comfort plays a leading role here.
Cormate AS Hall 4 / D21
De Antonio D32 Open
With 9.50 m hull length, the De Antonio D32 Open is one of the smaller boats built by this shipyard. As a walk-around model she offers room for twelve guests on board. The three different zones on board could also stand for three types of use – featuring three pilot seats at the helmstand, dining table, mini galley and sun studio in the cockpit plus two cabins and WC below deck. The black T-Top roof and the boat’s vertical stem together with the boxy hull lines give this boat lots of character. The D32 can be propelled by two 200 or 300 hp engines. The special highlight: these outboard motors are not visible for guests on board because they are hidden underneath the sun pad – like on the other De-Antonio models.
De Antonio Yachts S.L. Hall 5 / B20
Fairline Targa 40
Targa 40 rejuvenates Fairline’s successful range. She is more fun when speeding sportily but also places more emphasis on sociable spaces. With her “Beach Club” balcony and tender garage she makes maximum use of the usable space. Thanks to her open cockpit design the Targa 40 lets in plenty of light. The canvas roof can be completely retracted electrically so that you sit in the open air in the U-shaped dining area. The Targa 40 is equipped with the latest Garmin touch display and reaches a top speed of 36 knots with one 760 hp engine. Two twin-berth cabins invite families to cruise, while at anchor there is room to party with 12 people.
Fairline Yachts Ltd. Hall 6 / D59
Fairline Squadron 58
With the Squadron 58 British premium shipyard Fairline offers a powerboat under 60 feet but with the feel of an 80-foot yacht. The trick deployed by the shipyard here: Beach Club balconies on both sides which can be folded out on demand. These not only increase deck space but also provide an elegant step down into the water. The interior design is deliberately neutral to create a retreat of calm and cosiness on board. Thanks to the modular design, the cockpit furniture positions are customizable. Owing to the expanse of glass, making for an almost 360° view, nothing stands in the way of Mediterranean wellbeing. In addition to the Squadron 58, Fairline will also be bringing the Targa 40 to Düsseldorf.

Four Winns H6
The H series of bowriders account for the biggest segment at Four Winns. At eight metres long, the H6 is the flagship. The 2.3 ton boat is “catapulted forward” by a 430 hp outboard motor. You can see at first glance just how much this boat is tuned to speed and performance: all seats facing forward are equipped with arm rests for improved support. The helmstand was ergonomically optimised and upgraded with backlit switches and an integrated stereo. For increased safety, the special Surf edition positions the propellers away from the board riders. Just as much importance is attached to having fun at anchor with sun loungers, dual coolers and storage space for water toys.
Four Winns Hall 1 / B66
Four Winns TH 36
The North American shipyard Four Winns has built a reputation for open speed boats – both racy and high-quality. With their power catamaran Four Winns TH36 they transpose these qualities in the cruising segment. Plenty of space that can be flexibly used – the multi-hull fulfils this demand both above and below deck. For the aft cockpit boating fans can chose from three different layouts thanks to tables on sliders.
The two cabins below deck resemble suites with their queen-size beds, complemented by heads with separate shower area, wardrobes and indirect lighting. The Four Winns TH36 can be equipped with twin 600 hp or 700 hp outboard motors. As sleek as the lines of this catamaran are so too the way to steer it: by joystick.

Frauscher x Porsche eFantom
In Frauscher and Porsche two partners have met on a “luxury-level” playing field. Driving a Frauscher you attract as many appreciative glances as with a Porsche. Together the two have developed a sports boat that is as exquisite as it is forward-looking. The eFantom fuses the design expertise of both brands and surprises the world with a genuine technical coup: she is propelled by the e-motor of the Porsche Macan, which will not be out on the road before 2024. On the water its electric powertrain already does its job in the eFantom’s hull. This boat is the avantgarde. In Sport-Plus mode she shoots up to 45 knots. And even then her high-end stereo does not have a problem in drowning out the driving noise.
Frauscher Bootswerft Gmbh & Co. KG Hall 5 / C21
Galvani Boats will be showcasing the all-electric day cruiser Galvani Ventisei at boot Düsseldorf. The comfortable and well-thought-out electric tender with classic lines comes care of yacht designer Bernd Weel. Sea Level Naval Architects were in charge of the naval architecture.
The elegant looking 26-foot model built by the Dutch shipyard is available in two versions. As a completely furnished standard series Ventisei-e with a 10kW electric motor for relaxed cruising at 48 Volt and as a fast glider called Ventisei e-HS. Her 100kW electric motor (288 Volt) is fed by a 64 kWh battery pack and brings her up to over 20 knots top speed. The maintenance-free electric motors are made by Bellmarine.

Grand Golden Line G 680
RIB specialists Grand upgrade their medium line with the 22-foot Golden Line G680. The space in front of the centre console is used for maximum -sized sunbeds. The wet bar between the centre console and the U-shaped seating includes a sink, fridge-freezer and freshwater system. This RIB is designed for a 200 hp outboard motor. A 200l fuel tank is integrated. The dashboard is big enough for a 16” display. With her exquisite grey-beige colour scheme and tidy lines the G680 elegantly stands out from the mass of RIBs. Those wanting to pop the corks while cruising, are well catered to by Grand’s newcomer.
Grand Hall 9 / E04
As green as it gets. Not to be confused with Greenline from Slovenia, Green Power Boats hail from the Netherlands. Thanks to her hull shape the firm’s all-electric GreenPower 33 boasts a range of up to 80 nautical miles at a speed of 18 knots, by shipyard accounts. The wave-piercer shaped hull and the efficient, rigid hydrofoil make for highly efficient and completely relaxed cruising here.
Three battery options are available for the different ranges. Charging is done at customary 380 V power outlets. If these are not available, charging overnight with a 230 V can substantially increase the range.
Dynova4U BV Hall 4 / F04
Interboat Intender 950 Cabrio
This Dutch shipyard is an expert in open day boats. Their sloops and tenders have been synonymous with guaranteed quality for 30 years now. With the Intender 950 Cabrio just under 10 m long they are now presenting the flagship of their fleet. People want to have more room on board – and quality time on the water. The Intender 950 Cabrio responds to these needs with an especially expansive sunbed at the stern and a seating and dining area in the bow in front of the helmstand. A toilet can be built into the bow cabin. Powered by a 320 hp diesel engine the tender can reach a top speed of 25 knots. The shipyard gives a 10-year hull warranty – though nobody doubts the longevity of Interboat models anyway.

Invictus TT 420S
The bigger Invictus TT 460 already leveraged the benefits to be expected from a collaboration of “top guns”. The luxury brand Invictus and star designer Christian Grande ventured and won. The characteristic design with the flowing lines of inverted bow and windscreen now also captivate sailing enthusiasts with the little sister TT 420. The outboard motor version TT 420 S meets the trend towards outboards.
Equipped with three Yamaha 350 hp engines the S model outperforms the inboard version. The space inside gained by this is used as additional storage space. Above deck a protected lounge area in the bow is “juxtaposed” with a maximum open terrace in the stern. A small but nice bonus: the first TT 420 S comes in the exclusive colour Vogue White.
Aschenez Srl Hall 5 / C20
Lomac Turismo 9.5
Milan-based shipyard Lomac specialises in RIBs and this specialisation pays off. In terms of design and technology they leave other suppliers far behind. Their Turismo 9.5 even convinces the strictest RIB critics with her full-fledged ship aesthetics. In an anthracite-yellow colour mix she looks as racy as she does elegant. With two Mercury 300 hp outboard motors she faces the most adverse conditions while the crew stays protected from spray water thanks to the special bow design. The new top model adopts all the benefits of the bestseller Turismo 7.0 but makes them bigger. More expansive sunbeds and better equipped with a refrigerator and convertible dining area. The Turismo 9.5 offers high performance in all aspects.
Lomac Nautica s.r.l. Hall 9 / A42
Marex 440 Gourmet Cruiser
With the Marex 440 the Norwegian shipyard launches its biggest model – and its most special one. In addition to the standard version, Marex has designed the Gourmet Cruiser version with a focus on the pantry as opulent meals are part and parcel of a great cruise for more and more people. The Gourmet Cruiser accommodates this trend with an especially large U-shaped kitchen with an induction hob with oven, double sink, refrigerator and freezer as well as dishwasher. Lowering the kitchen window you get a counter that opens up to the seating area in the cockpit. This makes cooking fun! Needless to say, the other comforts are not neglected either: The aft deck of the Marex 440 can be converted into a sun pad when the table is lowered or even into a closed saloon when the curtains are drawn.
MAREX Boats UAB. Hall 1 / B70
This family day cruiser does everything right. The layout comprising two double-berth cabins in the bow and stern optimally accommodates parents and children. The big pantry with a two-burner hob and 60l refrigerator makes cooking fun even for several people. As a special feature the Polish shipyard positioned an aft sun pad above the outboard motor. The way via the gangway to the bow sun pad is particularly safe. The half-glider hull can be propelled by a 40 hp as well a 250 hp outboard motor – depending on the desired destination. The 880 proves how comfortably a family can cruise on nine metres. For next year the Nautic shipyard has already announced a “markedly bigger” powerboat – inspired by “exquisite boats positioned in the high-end segment”.

Navan C30 / S30
A Navan powerboat always ensures sufficient performance. Brunswicks’ new powerboat brand Navan targets all those who are “past” the Quicksilver and wish to have more sociable space on board – with the same quality and easy handling. The Navan C30 is truly a “mobile home” whose pilot deckhouse even makes cruising in adverse conditions a delight.
The cabin cruiser comes in the currently popular cross-cabin version, i.e. with a cabin and sleeping area below deck. With their new brand Brunswick have managed to accommodate all amenities on markedly less space than their competitors.
In parallel with Navan C30 an open version will also be launched. The Navan S30 is equipped with a GRP T-Top and swivel cockpit seats that can be arranged as an L-shaped seating area. Features even include a small cooking area.
Navan Hall 3 / B53
Nordkapp Coupe 830
The Coupe line built by the Scandinavian shipyard Nordkapp can cope with any type of weather. When the sun is shining you open the roof of the pilot house and spread out on the spacious areas in the cockpit and on the bow. When the weather is bad, the closed yet fully glazed pilothouse provides a cosy shelter. From the helmstand a sliding door leads you directly to the outdoor area. Bow and stern thrusters as well as trim flaps ensure unparalleled handling in narrow harbours and choppy waters. The 400 hp outboard motor always has power reserves. Thanks to her spacious cabins and high safety levels, the Coupe 830 is particularly popular with families.
Nordkapp Boats Hall 4 / D04
Northman Trawler 1050
The Polish shipyard attaches increasing importance to the seaworthiness of their models. This is why their 10 m trawler 1050 can be fitted with a 320 hp engine – fit for the CE-Category B. The design of this trawler comprises a flybridge with helmstand and sun pad and fold-out aft and side platforms for the most versatile on-board experience possible. Saloon and cockpit are located on the same level and can be connected into one area. The cockpit bench can be pushed to the side. There are two layouts below deck sleeping four or five. The finalist in the Best of Boats Award 2023 boosts the trawler theme.

Omikron OT 60
The quiet lifestyle of sailing, the convenience of powerboating: the OT 60 built by Greek shipyard Omikron combines the best of both worlds. Her exclusively developed Eco-Cruise hull with carbon reinforcement makes for such low-noise and economical cruising that you almost feel like being on board a sailing yacht. But the OT 60 is not dependent on wind – she covers 1,000 nautical miles at 12 knots with her twin 300 hp diesel engine consuming 1.25l per hour. The space above deck is comparable to that on a deckhouse yacht. The saloon is connected to the cockpit via glass doors. Three or four cabins are offered – each with their own bathroom. Omikron places special emphasis on daylight entering through skylights so that each crew member feels like a VIP guest.

With her “predator mouth” the Parker Sorrento not only looks but really is sporty. Her twin-step hull design and the maximum propulsion of a twin 350 hp make this boat a sports coupé on the water. “But she is very ‘good-natured’ nevertheless,” says Parker’s shipyard manager Chris Scott explaining the sailing behaviour of this maritime GTI.
“The Sorrento works for all,” adds Chris Scott, “for both people with a brisk driving style and those who predominantly want to feel safe on the water.” The maritime “sports coupé” comes with comfortable furnishings – including a full-headroom shower as standard. The Sorrento could be the sports cruiser of choice especially for families with children – if they aren’t on the swim platform to take a dive they will most probably be playing in their quarters below deck.
PARKER POLAND Sp. Z.o.o. Hall 3 / B31
The F-Line by Prestige has been a sure-fire success for over 30 years. Introducing the F4, the French shipyard now takes this line to the next level. A new, sharper V-hull, modernised interior design and plenty of space for guests all adapt to the needs of a new generation. The new line is oriented towards fulfilling highest holidaying demands from the sun pad on the flybridge to the lowerable swim platform. Sociable spaces play a prominent role: the helmstand in the saloon is framed by seating. The pantry opens towards the cockpit with a door and hinged window. The settee in the aft faces both the open sea and the cockpit. Tons of air and light – and what about the noise? The engine is so silent that you do not hear it below deck. This is true luxury.
Prestige Hall 6 / D57
Quarken 35 Cabin
The Finnish shipyard Quarken builds boats that can put up with just about anything – and they already signal this with their looks. Like the smaller Quarken 27 model, the Quarken 35 combines a deckhouse and inverted bow into a kind of SUV look and her properties are in no way inferior. But the increased functionality does not interfere with homeliness here. Prefer two sporty single seats or rather a two-seater sofa? Your choice. Like the cockpit furnishings: prefer a wet bar, settee or maximum open space? Thanks to the fold-out side walls the aft area opens up into a roomy terrace giving life at anchor a very special quality.
QUARKEN BOATS OY Hall 4 / B19
Rand Breeze 20
While details on the two bigger premieres at Rand Boats are still held back from the public, most is known about the Breeze 20, the smallest new edition by this Danish shipyard. While true that the Breeze 20 was designed and optimised as an electric boat – with her hull being built as a lightweight structure by the shipyard; her design “cuts through the waves” thereby extending her electrical range “like never before”, explains the shipyard. However, there is also a version with a 115 hp outboard motor, which effortlessly brings the Breeze 20 up to speeds above 30 knots, ensures the shipyard.
Rand Boats A/S Hall 5 / A21
Rand Roamer 29
In Scandinavia powerboats are everyday companions that have to serve many purposes. The Roamer 29 by Danish shipyard Rand does so in unrivalled style. Her boxy, futurist design cuts a fine figure in all kinds of weather. In sunshine the pilothouse can be opened completely with the exception of two pillars. In bad weather it can be converted into a closed deckhouse. The bow can be turned into a king-size sunbed while a toilet with standing height and skylight also allows for longer cruises. Rand attaches importance to offering all models with e-motors or IC engines alternatively – also the Roamer 29. With Mercruiser propulsion top speeds of 45 knots can be reached.
Rand Boats A/S Hall 5 / A21
Rand Solara 33
No compromising on design plus petrol and power on an equal footing for propulsion. The Danish shipyard Rand builds eye-catchers that elegantly point towards the future. Even today, over 40% of Rand’s boats are propelled by e-motors. The Solara 33 is to become the flagship of the e-fleet. This luxury daycruiser looks like a mono hull, but actually glides through the water on two hulls like a catamaran. This ensures maximum efficiency for the Solara 33. Solar cells on the coachroof also extend the range of the e-motor. The deck layout between lounge and terrace is perfect for silent propulsion: the luxury of unadulterated relaxation.
RAND Boats A/S Hall 5 / A21
Ruban Bleu Scoop 2
Boating can be so easy – as is demonstrated by the open electric boat Scoop 2 built by the French electric pioneers Ruban Bleu. Five metres long, she offers eight hours of sailing time at around 4 knots and seats seven. This makes group excursions on inland waterways fun, silent and relaxed thanks to the 1.8 kW motor. With a Bimini sunshade and table in the forecastle, the Scoop 2 becomes a picnic boat – no wonder it has become the first choice for both rental businesses and private customers. Since its foundation in 1992, Ruban Bleu has already sold over 3,000 electric boats. With Scoop 2 they have created everybody’s darling.
Ruban Bleu SAS Hall 4 / E03
Regal LS9 Surf
One of the biggest boat manufacturers in the US is Regal Boats from Orlando in Florida, the No.1 federal state when it comes to powerboats. Accordingly, the shipyard’s portfolio ranges from day boats to cabin cruisers. Exhibited in Düsseldorf for the first time will be the wakeboard boat Regal LS9 Surf. This boat is made for wakeboarding thanks to her large ballast tanks, specifically adapted wave-shaping tabs, and matching propulsion – the Forward Drive by Volvo Penta. Two 12” glass cockpit displays make for a clear overview during configuration, thereby ensuring both the right wave shape behind the boat and a comfortable ride forward. The hardtop can be lowered for lower bridges – just like the aft platform which – if need be – disappears under water.
Regal Marine Industries Inc. Hall 3 / A16
In Finnish latitudes boats face tough conditions. Sargo’s boats have risen to this challenge since the 70s. The shipyard has labelled its new explorer yacht Sargo 45 as an “All Season Yacht”. With its 880 hp the 15-metre boat reaches 30 knots – even in the most adverse conditions. The Sargo 45 is not only tuned to ruggedness. Her manufacturing quality impresses us down to the smallest of details – such as retractable cup holders, concealed power outlets or the handy knob on the steering wheel. Thanks to CAD the interior layout knows no “dead angles”. In addition to the Sargo 45, Düsseldorf will see the Sargo 36 exhibited – with an oak interior in ‘ice cool’. After all, the Finns are proud of their latitudes.
SARGO Oy Ab Hall 4 / B21
Saxdor 400 GTO
The Finnish Saxdor shipyard tops their sport boat line with the Saxdor 400 GTO. The flagship model features 12 m LOA and 3.55 m beam and a wheelhouse that extends to the full beam of the boat. The bow area is accessible via a door next to the helmstand. This layout not only provides maximum space in the saloon but also privacy for the bow sunbed. Twin 400 hp outboard rigs speed up the Saxdor 400 GTO to 48 knots. Privacy is also the name of the game for the cabin layout on the lower deck. Forward and aft cabins can be accessed by separate companionways. When the cockpit side walls are lowered the area behind the helmstand turns into an open space almost 5 metres wide – and all of a sudden, guests are just above the water line.
Saxdor Yachts Oy Hall 4 / D39
Schaefer 375 / 450
In Brazil Schaefer is the biggest yacht manufacturer offering models from 30 to 83 feet. The brand will be taking part in boot Düsseldorf for the first time now. The Schaefer 375 and 450 models are in the 11 m to 14 m range. The Schaefer 375 can be powered by inboards and outboards. Fold-out balconies come as a standard, just like the retractable hard top, a separate shower and a full galley.
Measuring almost 14 m in length, the Schaefer 450 Fly features a cool box, L-shaped seating and a sunshade on the flybridge, an extendible barbecue station and a fold-out starboard balcony in the cockpit. The Copa-Cabana atmosphere comes for free.

Sea Ray SPX 190
The Sea Ray SLX 260, which will enter the European market in sizable numbers from 2024 for the first time, will be joined by the brand-new Sea Ray SPX 190. This US boat, on display for the first time in Germany, is the next model – featuring Sea Ray’s both classic (in other words proven) and updated design language. Celebrating a premiere will be the completely new hull and deck design and the curved windscreen – a future classic.
Being their smallest model, the SPX 190 is of strategic importance to this the probably most iconic US powerboat producer – as an entry-level model for the brand. And this is why customers are spoilt for choice: the compact family cruiser will be showcased in Düsseldorf both as an inboard version and for Mercury outboards. Standard furnishings therefore include all the comfort features that make boating easy – including an NSX display by Simrad as an info centre and the automatic Mercury trims for perfect performance.
SEARAY Hall 3 / A69-A70
The boats built by the Estonian shipyard Seastorm are literally made “from a single mould”. The special polyethylene rotational moulding process makes for especially torsion-resistant and durable hulls. The shipyard gives a 20-year guarantee on their hulls – and promises minimal maintenance. The Mannerfelt Design Team, famous for its offshore race boats, has drawn the hulls for Seastorm. They boast amazingly easy handling and great safety. The line includes three models ranging from 3.60 m to 5.20 m, which can be equipped with various Mercury outboards between 10 and 80 hp. As colourful as the fleet – as carefree the pleasure of driving these boats.

Seven Seas Yachts Venus Speedster X
Aesthetes swear by the neo-classics care of Seven Seas Yachts. And the Venus Speedster X is also a special beauty. Lines echoing the grandezza of the “airstream epoch”, two-tone paint or mahogany decking convince even the most demanding connoisseurs. And her sailing abilities are none too shabby either. Even when accelerating her bow only rises minimally. The amphi-hull reduces the water resistance and hence consumption. The low centre of gravity allows the Speedster to be especially stable in the water. Those wanting to take old style into the new age can also opt for a Deep-Blue e-drive by Torqeedo instead of the 350 hp Mercruiser. The Speedster is a feast for the eyes either way.

Steeler 50 TA
The abbreviation “TA” in the Dutch power yacht Steeler TA stands for TransAtlantic. The semi-displacement motor yacht made of steel and aluminium offers a transatlantic range, be it on the Rhine river or on the open seas. To achieve this range the fuel capacity was increased to 5,000 litres and a Wingit Kite system incorporated. This kite system uses wind energy to save fuel accounting for the first 4 or 5 knots of speed without the two Volvo Penta D8-600 consuming any diesel.
To take the 16.50 m long and 4.93 m wide yacht safely across the ocean, the shipyard has ensured all technical systems are fully redundant. These include radar, night vision devices, satellite telephones, dual radio systems, and other state-of-the-art equipment for carefree Atlantic crossings. The starry skies always remain visible through the 2.40 x 3.20 m XXL glass sliding roof.

Sterk 31 Wetbar
The Sterk 31 RC proved THE surprise of the powerboat year 2023 celebrating its global premiere at boot Düsseldorf. The fast debut boat from Germany backed up by an international team of designers and technicians convinced both as a performance cruiser and a comfy family cruiser.
Now the second model is to follow the rear-cabin version: the Sterk 31 with wet bar. Complete with a well thought-out bar, compact galley and separate dining area, the aft cockpit offers either a lounging area for dining with friends and family or sun pad. Important: a bathroom cabin with washbasin and a pull-out shower is also on board.
In practical tests she not only surprised with her speed but also with the safety and ease with which she reached over 55 knots. The boat testers were thrilled: the boat is perfectly balanced on the water – no trim flaps. Engine trim alone is sufficient to keep the Sterk 31 in an optimal glide at any speed.

Sunseeker Predator 75
The Predator 75 is a performance yacht and – without any false modesty – focused on power as much as on luxurious comfort. Outside, the colour mix of midnight grey and jet black impresses us on the arrow-like hull, while inside we are struck by the furnishings with refrigerator and cooler, dishwasher, wine cooler, electric barbecue and even a walk-in wardrobe. High-performance air conditioning, HiFi stereo and TV set form just as much part of the amenities as does a Simrad 19” display. With 3,800 hp the Predator 75 exceeds 40 knots top speed. By the time you look at the underwater lighting you realise this yacht is not only about performance but also about making a grand entry.

Sunseeker Ocean 182
The luxury class is open to experimentation. Sunseeker dare to propose a new deck layout with their Ocean 182. On the 27 m yacht, the helm station was moved to the enclosed flybridge creating a spacious deck saloon that rivals those found on-board super yachts. There is a full-beam master cabin located midships and like the VIP cabin in the bow and two other cabins it has an ensuite bathroom. Powered by twin 2,000 hp the Ocean 182 achieves a comfortable top speed of 27 knots. At 12 knots cruising speed she has an extended range of 1,800 nautical miles. This yacht is suitable as a principal residence.

Super Air Nautique G23 Paragon
When wakeboard boat specialists like Nautique launch a new model, you expect her to be as much fun for boarders as for the passengers. The G23 Paragon is in a class of its own – as the multi-faceted hull sides and the sharp-angled bow make patently clear. This diamond-like pattern is also echoed by the high-tech materials used for the flooring and upholstery. The helmstand boasting two 15” displays, a special driver’s seat adjustable in all directions and new ergonomic design is clearly geared to top performance. The wakeboards perfectly fit underneath the aft benches thanks to a new Board Management System. With two flicks of the wrist the aft benches are folded to face the bow or backwards – where the wakeboarding action is.

Tinn Silver 350
As with all Tinn Silver models, anyone looking for an easy-to-handle and solid boat for fishing or a bathing trip is perfectly catered to with these Dutch aluminium boats. The 3.50 m model is the shipyard’s youngest model. With as little as 300 kg she can be trailed to a wide variety of applications. In addition to the 350, Tinn Silver also exhibits the Limited Edition: the 500 Sport features especially elaborate manufacturing. Her hull consists of 5-millimetre seawater-resistant aluminium. Tinn Silver boats are a natural companion you don’t have to brag about – they are just good.
Valkama’s excursion boat is only 5.1 m long but it has everything it takes. Launching their Picnic Cruiser, the Finnish shipyard for all-electric boats intend to put to bed the tiresome topic of range for e-motors. The 40 kW drive with a 28 kWh battery pack gives the Cruiser impressive values. A top speed of 18 knots can be maintained over 1.5 hours. At pleasurable trolling speeds you will hardly come up against range limits because they stand at 48 hours. The Picnic Cruiser is perfectly equipped for anchoring in a bay with a refrigerator, ceramic grill and integrated stereo. Valkama opted in favour of a recyclable aluminium hull in order to pursue the sustainability theme consistently.

Viper V 323 HT
On show in Düsseldorf for the first time: the sport boat Viper V 323 HT. Brand new features of this boat made in Germany include its hard top, audio systems and electric sliding roof. Powered by Volvo Penta or Mercury inboards the Viper V 323 is a classic-type cruiser without visible engines. Relaxed manoeuvring in harbours is ensured by the optional joystick instead of the wheel.
Featuring the biggest aft cabin in her class, precious wood interiors and a roomy underfloor cabin, the latest debut of the fast Viper line offers plenty of comfort below deck. The 9.80 m long boat, available with optional hard top, offers a spacious cabin with sleeping areas, a full galley and a bathroom – making her also fit for longer cruises.

Wellcraft has a reputation to uphold: they build yachts that enable their users to enjoy both adventures and holidays alike. The 435 is the new addition to their line and a performance cruiser brimming with self-confidence and power. The 13.4 m yacht is powered by triple outboard motors totalling over 1,000 hp. The helmstand with its three pilot and co-pilot benches and elaborate navigation system resembles a command centre.
Both twin berth cabins below deck have private bathrooms with separate showers. With its glazed coachroof above the sofa and galley, the saloon spreads summery wellness on board – enhanced further by the seamlessly connected cockpit with two lateral folding side terraces. Ideal for tanning high and dry is the triple sun lounger in front of the pilothouse.

Windy 29 Huracán
With its special V-hull this Scandinavian shipyard has built a legendary reputation for itself for over 50 years. Their new Sport Cruiser W29 Huracán follows on from their classic design language while taking this combination of sportiness and luxury to the next level. After the Camara, the Huracán is the second model with an interior developed by Design Unlimited. Sleeping area and open pantry connect to form an elegant loft: bright, airy and clear-cut. The 9 m boat is powered by a Volvo Penta or Yanmar inboard. Both engines provide the same racy top speed of 40 knots.

XO DFNDR A8 Fishing Edition
Finnish boat manufacturer XO Boats is breaking new ground. The XO DFNDR A8 Fishing Edition is the shipyard’s first sport fishing boat made entirely from aluminium. The walkaround boat is recommended as a an “agile companion for anyone leading an active lifestyle”, as Rabbe Nerdrum from XO Boats defines the typical owner.
This was achieved via the successful combination of materials (the DFNDR A8 is made from military-grade marine aluminium), striking design as a sleek modern daycruiser – and impressive performance and safety on the water. Boat testers were impressed. The boat can be equipped with either two 225 hp engines or a single engine with up to 450 hp. “This allows her to reach speeds of over 50 knots,” says Nerdrum.

X Shore Pro
Electric boat manufacturer X Shore are presenting their third model – the X Shore Pro – as a world premiere at boot Düsseldorf. The boat has the same iconic silhouette as the Swedish manufacturer’s more compact tender models. The 8 m long X Shore Pro is available in two versions – Cabin and Open, with a fully modular interior that can be adapted to the user’s needs.
The large pilothouse-style deckhouse makes the Cabin version completely independent of weather conditions. This is important for the purpose of the X Shore Pro, which the shipyard describes as “silence at work”. The new boat model is the shipyard’s first development for commercial shipping. One of the first examples to be delivered is being used as a floating school bus for daily shuttle services in the Swedish archipelago.
