BOOT Dusseldorf 2020. Luxury, speed & HI TECH TECHNOLOGIES
From January 18 to 26, Düsseldorf was again the centre of the yachting universe. The largest exhibition for representatives of the water sports industry in the world has already been held here 51 times. Among the representatives are those from the world’s largest shipbuilders. They present new boats and yachts where you can see amazing technologies, innovative materials and coatings. The number of visitors this year exceeded 250,000 people, of which about a quarter came from abroad. About 1,900 exhibitors from 60 countries presented their new boats, marine products and services. In addition to the regular visitors – enthusiasts, owners of large yachts, engineers, designers and those who just came along out of curiosity – are the businesspeople; those who are interested in commercial matters. We have selected several new products from this year’s show that impressed not just visitors, but also the jury of the exhibition who selected them as favourites of this grand and impressive event.
SILENT 60 OCEAN-GOING SOLAR CATAMARAN
A true world cruiser
The SILENT 60 uses a quiet electric drive for unlimited range without noise or fumes and minimal vibration, it is self-sufficient. As a result, the operating costs of the vessels are significantly lower compared to motor yachts with more traditional propulsion systems.The catamaran is available in several layouts ranging from three to six cabins with a maximum of six bathrooms. There is a large saloon with large windows on the main deck, a spacious flybridge with another steering position, seating area and sun loungers. The SILENT 60 is equipped with the company’s ventilation system, which provides cool and fresh air in all accommodation, bathrooms and saloon. In addition, a reverse cycle heat pump system warms the interior when needed for year round comfort. The insulated hull ensures that the desired temperatures are efficiently achieved on board.
Palm Beach GT50
Pure elegance and speed
The GT50 is a powerhouse with a top speed of 40 knots that achieves an efficiency of 40 gallons per hour at 35 knots. Beautiful exterior contours and contemporary interiors ensure timeless appeal. As with all Palm Beach models, a hyperfocus on lightweight, rugged construction helps optimize the GT’s efficiency. The hull of the GT50 is a fully infused vinylester E-glass construction, which is complemented by a fully infused 100% carbon fiber deck and superstructure. The deck and bulkheads are structurally bonded to the hull to increase strength and stiffness, forming a semi-monocoque hull that results in a much more stable boat.
Sunseeker 76 Yacht
Performance, style and space
Performance, style and space – the all-new 76 Yacht is unmistakeably Sunseeker from the exceptional sea-keeping of the very latest deep-V hull design to the class leading space throughout her beautifully appointed deck. For life “al fresco” her exterior decks provide unprecedented levels of space and flexibility that can be adapted to suit any needs. On the flybridge choose a spa tub, an allocated spot for your jet-ski or additional sunbeds to maximise the space as you wish. For even further customisation, your cockpit can be adapted for additional lounge seating or cocktail bar, with the stern equipped for an additional mini beach club, complete with a barbecue grill, fold-out seating and a rain shower, perfect for entertaining family and friends, making the most of the extended bathing platform, which can accommodate a Williams 445 tender.
BRABUS Shadow 900
Packed with technical innovation and with maximum performance, BRABUS presents the new BRABUS Shadow 900 Spyder in full-open version for pure, unadulterated driving pleasure and the new BRABUS Shadow 900 Sun-Top. Luxuriously equipped and based on the revolutionary Axopar 37 hull, this series is available in the fully equipped Shadow 900 version and, to top it off, also in a very limited, exclusive “1 of 37” Black Op’s Launch collector’s edition, which traditionally accompanies the launch of a new BRABUS product. The BRABUS Shadow 900 Black-Ops “1 of 37” is handcrafted and focuses on precision and workmanship. All Limited-Edition models are exclusively delivered in the unmistakable “Gunmetal Grey” paint scheme, in combination with the bright red BRABUS seating – a very striking combination. Owners can now expect even more power than before as Mercury Marine’s latest 450R Verado XL 4.6-litre V8 four-stroke engines reaches over 60 knots, hence the name Shadow 900. These ‘beefy’ new powerhouses in dual rig configuration offer improved performance and the best driveability in their class.
Vision of innovation
The E32, the most efficient and quietest chaseboat in the world, built for ultimate range and speed with zero emissions. Besides the open version of the E32, Domani presented the versions E32 Targa and E32 Gran Turismo. The E32 Targa offers sun protection and solar energy options, the E32 Gran Turismo, with a closed superstructure or hardtop, offers a more cruising oriented driving experience. The E32 Chaseboat will have the same qualities as the S30 sports yacht, underlining DOMANI’s vision of innovation, technology and uniqueness. With the E32, DOMANI is also targeting the huge tender boat market of the superyacht industry.
Solaris Power 48 Open
Tradition interpreted in a modern way
Solaris Power is constantly redefining the concept of traditional American lobster boats and is now introducing the 48 Open. The new Solaris Power 48 Open offers a number of features that are unique in the category. The latest generation propulsion system is perfectly integrated into the shape of the hull, something that has never happened before in this segment. These features allow long cruises in adverse weather conditions with absolute safety and long range… The 48 Open is capable of efficiently sailing at low speed in displacement mode and also well over 35 knots, unlike normal boats with gliding hulls. On the main deck, starting from the bow, there is a sunbathing area with a protected headrest. Designed by Norberto Ferretti
