We take a look inside the new Boarncruiser 1300 Elegance at the 2015 Dusseldorf Boat Show

The first of the Boarnstream Elegance range of aft cockpit and flybridge designs was so mobbed that by the time we got on board at the 2015 Dusseldorf Boat Show they’d already sold seven of them.

It’s not hard to see why; this is the best attempt yet to blend the style of a modern GRP craft with the robust build and seakeeping of a steel cruiser.

The tall side windows give excellent views out while the bi-fold cockpit doors, aft-galley layout and step-less main deck create a wonderful single- level living area.

Both the interior and exterior design have a fresh, modern look that won’t scare off traditional buyers and it’s a very practical layout with three separate cabins in a short overall length and safe deck spaces.

Boarncruiser has a knack for elegant engineering solutions. The electric dinette table and sunroof glide more quickly and silently than on comparable craft.

All the windows are double glazed and the cockpit doors have Venetian blinds encased between the glass.

The rounded bow shape makes for a beamy forward master cabin and ensuite, with a single cabin to port and a twin to starboard sharing the guest heads.
