The new boat is a direct rival to Beneteau's low-cost Monte Carlo

This new 37 from Bavaria is the final piece of the puzzle for the German manufacturer’s mid-order sportscruiser range.

It replaces both the 35 and 38, and will have Beneteau sweating, as the boat is a direct rival to the French firm’s low-cost Monte Carlo.

This year has seen the launch of three new 30ft sportscruisers from Bavaria, a sign that this is a market the company wants to dominate.

Prices for the new boat will start at £175,715 for the sport version and £197,080 for the hardtop version.

Ancasta expects the first 37 to be in the country by August, in time for the Southampton Boat Show.

Don’t miss July’s MBM (out 21 June) for more details.
