Watch our videos and enjoy pictures from the Düsseldorf Boat Show
Motor Boat & Yachting has been busily trapsing the halls of the 2014 Düsseldorf Boat Show to bring you videos and pictures from one of the best boat shows in the world.
The show was peppered with exciting new launches but few were more important than the debut of the first “German” Sealine, the F380. See Jack Haines’ video review of the boat below.
Also turning heads was the Greenline 48 Hybrid, a brillianty packaged and handsome three cabin flybridge cruiser. It has the eco credentials that Greenline is famous for but at its core there is a practical and capable twin diesel flybride boat, with a pretty resonable starting price just south of £425,000.
Elsewhere we saw a new hard top version of Jeanneau’s leader 38, dubbed the 40, the first in a new flybridge line from Privateer and Windy’s eagerly awaited 39 Camira. All of which you can see pictures of in our gallery by clicking the link at the top.
Broom took Düsseldorf as an opportunity to launch an updated version of the the 425, called the 430. The basic outline may be the same but the 430 feels bang up to date with a shiny hull wrap and modern, beautfully appointed interior.
At the smaller end of the market there was a resurrection of the popular Draco name through the new 26 and XO has added a neat forward cabin to its flagship 270 Cabin to make pretty much the ultimate weekender.
A full round-up of the show will be going into out April 2014 issue, out in the first week of March.
