Jeanneau has pitched its hat into the walkaround dayboat ring with the Jeanneau DB/43 the first in a striking new range aimed at challenging the likes of Fjord, Pardo and Solaris.

The Jeanneau DB/43 will be available with either inboard or outboard propulsion options.

The model is billed as a cross between a premium dayboat and express cruiser.

It appears to have fold-down side platforms, walkaround decks, a vertical bow and a hard top sunroof.

The long hull windows also suggest a larger than average cabin space below decks.

While the Jeanneau DB/43 concept was conceived in-house, the execution was left to American naval architect Michael Peters, who developed the hull, and Italian stylist Camillo Garroni, who designed the exterior and interior spaces.
