12 new boats you have to see at Southampton Boat Show

With the Southampton Boat Show now only a matter of weeks away, we round up the 12 new boats that will be topping the bill

Beneteau Gran Turismo 40

Bénéteau Gran Turismo 40

French giant Bénéteau has been fairly candid about its new arrival, with plenty of details already confirmed: twin Volvo Penta sterndrives, up to 370hp, 35 knots top speed.

Now all we need is to see the finished product hit the water and Southampton is where that will finally happen.

Draco 22

Draco 22RS

Another Scandinavian speedster, this pocket rocket from Draco is sure to be a hit at the boat show.

We’ve already been out for a quick test-drive in this bowrider and can confirm that it is every bit as thrilling as its big sister, the Draco 27RS.

Haines 400

Haines 400

Fresh out of this Norfolk yard’s facility the redesigned 400 is a brand new flagship model from Haines Marine.

Extra-long hull windows and twin 370hp Yanmar V8 diesel engines are just two of the reasons to make a beeline for this one.

Linssen Grand Sturdy 45.9 Sedan Wheelhouse

Linssen 45.9

It’s no secret that we here at MBY have a bit of a soft spot for Linssen, so when the Dutch yard launches another steel-hulled cruiser, we’re at the front of the crew.

There’s no need to cross the Channel this time though, as the new 45.9 Sedan Wheelhouse is coming to the UK.
