Sunseeker Ocean 182

Sunseeker Ocean 182 running

The luxury class is open to experimentation. Sunseeker dare to propose a new deck layout with their Ocean 182. On the 27 m yacht, the helm station was moved to the enclosed flybridge creating a spacious deck saloon that rivals those found on-board super yachts. There is a full-beam master cabin located midships and like the VIP cabin in the bow and two other cabins it has an ensuite bathroom.

Powered by twin 2,000 hp the Ocean 182 achieves a comfortable top speed of 27 knots. At 12 knots cruising speed she has an extended range of 1,800 nautical miles. This yacht is suitable as a principal residence.

Sunseeker Predator 75

The Predator 75 is a performance yacht and – without any false modesty – focused on power as much as on luxurious comfort. Outside, the colour mix of midnight grey and jet black impresses us on the arrow-like hull, while inside we are struck by the furnishings with refrigerator and cooler, dishwasher, wine cooler, electric barbecue and even a walk-in wardrobe.

High-performance air conditioning, HiFi stereo and TV set form just as much part of the amenities as does a Simrad 19” display. With 3,800 hp the Predator 75 exceeds 40 knots top speed. By the time you look at the underwater lighting you realise this yacht is not only about performance but also about making a grand entry.

Omikron OT 60

The quiet lifestyle of sailing, the convenience of powerboating: the OT 60 built by Greek shipyard Omikron combines the best of both worlds. Her exclusively developed Eco-Cruise hull with carbon reinforcement makes for such low-noise and economical cruising that you almost feel like being on board a sailing yacht. But the OT 60 is not dependent on wind – she covers 1,000 nautical miles at 12 knots with her twin 300 hp diesel engine consuming 1.25l per hour.

The space above deck is comparable to that on a deckhouse yacht. The saloon is connected to the cockpit via glass doors. Three or four cabins are offered – each with their own bathroom. Omikron places special emphasis on daylight entering through skylights so that each crew member feels like a VIP guest.


Ferretti Group with MennYacht Group presents wallypower50 that serves as the magic connection between utility and comfort, between performance and style, and between form and function. The concept for its design revolved around creating a bridge between the more open style of the wallytender43 and wallytender48 and the larger wallypower58. The result is a model that can be specced to a seemingly endless array of operational profiles for a vast array of customers, from support vessel to standalone family cruiser.

At its heart are twin Volvo Penta IPS650s that can take the wallypower50 past 36 knots, while offering both a 30-knot cruise and easy joystick handling with DPS (optional) in close-quarters manoeuvres. The deep-V hull ensures a faster cruise in bigger seas, and the model is also offered in the X version with quad 400hp Mercury outboards that deliver a scintillating ride at 48 knots while still offering a 240-nautical-mile range.

Frauscher x Porsche eFantom

Frauscher x Porsche eFantom exterior design

In Frauscher and Porsche two partners have met on a ‘luxury-level’ playing field. Driving a Frauscher you attract as many appreciative glances as with a Porsche. Together the two have developed a sports boat that is as exquisite as it is forward-looking. The eFantom fuses the design expertise of both brands and surprises the world with a genuine technical coup: she is propelled by the e-motor of the Porsche Macan, which will not be out on the road before 2024.

On the water its electric powertrain already does its job in the eFantom’s hull. This boat is the avantgarde. In Sport-Plus mode she shoots up to 45 knots. And even then her high-end stereo does not have a problem in drowning out the driving noise.

Saxdor 400 GTC

Designed for a twin outboard rig with proprietary naval architecture, both models of the Saxdor 400 deliver a ride to remember every time. What sets the new Saxdor 400 GTC apart is the main deck. The wheelhouse extends to the full beam, like the GTO, but with the sides sealed by vast, insulated glazing to welcome in light and warmth without the disturbances of wind or rain. The exceptionally large lateral terraces provide plenty of outdoor space onto which the modular furniture can expand.

The possibility of 360-degree transparent protection for the cabin with a glass door aft sets the Saxdor 400 GTC apart as the most adaptable yacht in the category. Accessed via two separate stairs, the spacious forward double cabin and amidships double cabin are served by an ample head, and it is even possible to add a third berth for kids.

Invictus TT 420S

Invictus TT420S side view

The bigger Invictus TT 460 already leveraged the benefits to be expected from a collaboration of ‘top guns’. The luxury brand Invictus and star designer Christian Grande ventured and won. The characteristic design with the flowing lines of inverted bow and windscreen now also captivate sailing enthusiasts with the little sister TT 420. The outboard motor version TT 420 S meets the trend towards outboards.

Equipped with three Yamaha 350 hp engines the S model outperforms the inboard version. The space inside gained by this is used as additional storage space. Above deck a protected lounge area in the bow is ‘juxtaposed’ with a maximum open terrace in the stern. A small but nice bonus: the first TT 420 S comes in the exclusive colour Vogue White.


Hallberg-Rassy 69

Hallberg-Rassy 69 is both the largest and the greatest yacht ever built by Hallberg-Rassy. This flagship can be handled by a family crew, by the concept of effortless sailhandling through PushButtonSailing. At the same time, there is room for deckhand or skipper if desired. The exterior exudes graceful elegance with its sweeping lines. The deck is unusually clean and completely flushed forward of the mast. The long cockpit has two L-shaped sofas, a large and solid wooden cockpit table in high-gloss varnishand is well protected by the Hallberg-Rassy-typical windshield or hardtop.

The interior is located on one level from bow to stern, important for moving freely, whether it is while sailing or at anchor or in port. There is an unusual amount of natural light, with eight hull portlights. The interior design options enables a walk-in closet, a cabin for a deckhand, and VIP guest cabins.

Elan Impression 43

The Elan Impression 43 heralds a new era for the famous Elan Impression line. Designed by naval architects at Humphreys Yacht Design, legendary Italian design studio Pininfarina and nautical engineers at Elan R&D, the Elan Impression 43 boasts a sleek modern exterior and a spacious, well-equipped, quality hand-crafted interior, making it an ideal choice for family cruising.

Its advanced features include twin rudders for enhanced handling and a modern hull for an enjoyable sailing experience. The yacht’s spacious cockpit and adaptable layout cater to a wide spectrum of sailors, from experienced yachtsmen to those new to the world of sailing. Owners can choose between three or four-cabin versions. The three-cabin version includes an en-suite with an island bed and a spacious head with a separate shower, and the four-cabin version adds a cabin with bunk beds, perfect for families or groups of friends.

Sun Odyssey 350

Following the tremendous success of the Sun Odyssey 349, launched in 2013 and having sold nearly 1,000 sailboats, Jeanneau proudly introduces its worthy successor: the Sun Odyssey 350. The newest addition to the Sun Odyssey line boasts numerous attributes and optimised functions to win over fans of both cruising and performance. With its distinctive new hull, a generous sail plan, an integrated bowsprit, and a harmonious interior, the Sun Odyssey 350 promises innovation and sailing enjoyment.

Designed by the naval architecture firm of Lombard Yacht Design and the naval architecture and design agency Piaton Yacht Design, this sailboat perfectly embodies the brand’s fundamentals: ease of use, performance, and peace of mind. Offered in two versions, with two cabins + workshop or with three cabins, the Sun Odyssey 350 showcases a contemporary interior design and comprehensive comfort amenities.

Bavaria C46

The Bavaria C46 develops, interprets and expands the design concept of the German shipyard’s very successful C-LINE. Based on the experience of the last successful developments, the new C46 has distinctive chines and the famous BAVARIA V-Bow, which give the C46 a very agile and at the same time extremely stable sailing behaviour. Whether relaxed sailing with a small crew, single-handed sailing or trips with a large crew and sporting ambitions – the Bavaria C46 offers all the necessary options for maximum sailing pleasure.

In addition to an appealing design and high-quality fittings, the clear aim during development was to create a spacious and communicative salon for owners and crew, while at the same time offering a maximum of privacy in the homely cabins. A variety of layouts, also below deck, offers the greatest possible individualisation, whether for sociable costal sailing with a large crew or for long journeys with a small crew or family.

Moody Decksaloon 48

With the DS48, Moody presents its new medium-sized blue water yacht for special demands. Like her larger and smaller sisters, the award-winning DS41 and the DS54, the Moody DS48 is characterised by her spacious saloon with a perfect 360-degree view to the outside. Equally unique is the comfortable and safe Moody walkaround deck with a high bulwark and fixed railing. The well thought-out concept now also ensures the typical Moody ‘monomaran’ experience in the 48-foot class – like a catamaran on a single hull.

Without a disturbing step between the generously protected cockpit and the deck saloon, the Moody DS48 offers plenty of space and area on one level. Designed in collaboration with Bill Dixon and the team at Dixon Yacht Design, the Moody DS48 is another of the brand’s models that epitomises the unique combination of volume and performance of the ground-breaking Moody DS range.
