MBY's excellent preview of what to see at the Southampton Boat Show continues online...(4)

There are so many exciting new boats at the Southampton Boat Show this year we couldn’t fit them all in the magazine!
So following on from our eight-page feature in the October issue of MBY, here, in this and three other stories on our website, is the best of the rest?

Linssen Grand Sturdy 299

Berths 323-4

What is it?
A handsome and classy single engine estuary or inland cruiser.

What they say
“With many innovative and now patented new design features – such as the Floor Integrated System (FIS) providing the whole boat with easily accessible yet completely hidden sub-systems, and the Power Impact Construction (PIC) designed to reduce shaft vibration and overall noise – the Linssen Company continues to produce steel displacement motor yachts to exacting standards that are prestigious, elegant and beautiful.”

What we say
Enjoying its Southampton debut, this model is available in sedan or aft cabin guises and has already proved a hugely popular craft across Europe. For just over £100,000, the manufacturers have been able to maintain the high standards that have marked them out on the rest of their range.
The boat features an aft cabin and forecabin, both warmly fitted out, with en suite bathroom and a separate shower compartment.
