It was a massive effort for the logisticians to deliver the 175 ton luxury yacht Drettmann Explorer Yacht 24 safely from the shipyard an onto the transport pontoon. The largest yacht at boot Düsseldorf won‘t just break this record.

Drettmann Explorer Yacht 24!

Big Willi has limits
The yacht's journey from the shipyard to Düsseldorf began four weeks before the fair's opening. Only after the hall door was enlarged to accomodate the 24m long Explorer was it possible for the specialists to transport the yacht across the street to the waiting heavy-load pontoon. This alone took 24 hours. Afterwards it sailed on the Rhein to Düsseldorf, where another heavy-load transport brought the DEY 24 the last meters to its exhibition stand in Hall 6. The fair’s crane „Big Willi“ wasn‘t strong enough for this little super yacht.

Very special debut
Drettmann Yachts, the Bremen-based family business, knows premieres and yachts like almost no one else in Germany. Drettmann Yachts has sold over 10,000 ships since its founding in 1970 and approximately 1,500 were new construction. Nevertheless this premiere is something special: „this yacht is guiding us into a new era and will cause a sensation on the market,“ explains Claudia Drettmann, managing director. „The yacht‘s technical equipment is extremely complex, the space is above average, and the quality standards are equivalent to much larger ships.“ Diesel electric POD propulsion is being utilized for the first time worldwide in a yacht of this class. For its size, it features a completely new room concept that integrates a generous beach club with a sauna and lounge area astern.

The DEY 24 will be exhibited at boot Düsseldorf in Hall 6, Stand A59.
