Boot Düsseldorf, Europe’s most important indoor boat show dedicated to the world of recreational boating, is just around the corner and promises to be full of news! Next week, from Jan. 20 to Jan. 28, we are going to browse the yards’ booths to tell you about the “hot” models coming up for the next season.

Boot Düsseldorf

Boot Düsseldorf, the most interesting new products for 2024

Still not everything has been unveiled; there are shipyards such as Hanse and Cantieri del Pardo that hold the best surprises for the show. This is our list of the most “tasty” proposals of the German trade fair in Düsseldorf: models on display and projects in the making that we will see exhibited at the show.

Arcona 50 (15.80 x 4.60 m)

The Swedish shipyard’s new flagship is a boat geared toward long-range cruising. The aesthetics are reminiscent of the performance-cruiser world(there is the “touch” of Jeppesen, founder of X-Yachts), with generous but balanced volumes, nearly inverted bow exits that are also appealing to those who like sporty boats. In contrast to many pure cruisers, she has no edge on the hull, but rather the stern exits are soft, with a slight knee that winks more at the world of sport boats.

Boot Düsseldorf. Bavaria C46 (14.86 x 4.70 m)

Boot Düsseldorf 2024

New entry in Bavaria’s C-Line range, the series of performance cruising boats designed by Italian firm Cossutti Yacht Design. A boat with a “classic” V-shaped hull starting at the bow, thin along the waterline that widens as it reaches the deck, providing more forward volume. The edge is very pronounced towards the stern and the maximum beam is set back: another solution to increase cabin space, living comfort and brightness. Learn more

Beneteau Oceanis 37.1 (11.93 x 3.92 m)

Marc Lombard oversaw the water lines, Nauta deck and interior, available in various layouts. A boat in continuity, as a philosophy and aesthetic, with the rest of the most recent Oceanis range. Offered in a standard sail plan version that includes a classic, or furling, mainsail and self-tacking jib, with double rudder blade and L-shaped keel. For those who enjoy sailing and are looking for some extra horsepower, a “First” package, with square top mainsail and low overlap jib, will be available.

Contest 63CS (19.29 x 5.50 m)

Designed for high performance in all weather conditions, the new Contest 63CS, features balanced lines designed by the naval architects at judel/vrolijk & co. and an interior styling by Wetzels Brown Partners. Full certification by Lloyd’s Register guarantees Contest’s high standards. Unique in its class, it offers two identical VIP suites in front of the square, ideal for families and friends. Clever solutions and electric maneuvering make it a boat suitable for even small crews, despite its size. Learn more

Boot Düsseldorf. Dufour 44 (13.91 x 4.45 m)

Boot Düsseldorf bavaria

The design recalls the “family feeling” of the Dufour 41, also designed by Italian studio Felci Yachts. Characterized by a sleek hull with large windows at the broadside, which lightens the weight and increases the brightness of the interior. At the bow finds space for the dolphin boat that houses the anchor snout (with vertical bows this is now a must). Double rudder wheel but single blade, with a view to reducing hydrodynamic drag and favoring sensitivity. The interior, by Ardizio Design, offers bright spaces, with “front” or “side” galley options and different cabin configurations. Learn more

Elan Impression 43 (13.60 x 4.25 m)

The search for harmony between design, performance and comfort was the guiding principle behind the new Elan Impression 43, which bears the signature of Rob Humphreys and Pininfarina. This 13-meter, ideal for charter and family cruising, is made with 3D VAIL (Vacuum Assisted Infusion Lamination) technique, which provides a stronger and lighter structure. The hull features a sharp edge that increases the section and volume of the boat, improving performance and stability. Dual rudder blade system in the water ensures maneuverability and increased wheel feel. The bright and spacious interior features a full kitchen, C-shaped dinette, and comfortable bathrooms. Learn more

Boot Düsseldorf. Flaar 24 (7.23 x 2.50 m)

Boot Düsseldorf. Flaar 24Full-carbon Hungarian boat designed to reduce maintenance costs without compromising racing or cruising performance. Optimized for lakes, it features a hull, lifting keel, sail rig and interior layout designed for this environment. A distinctive feature is the keel that can be lifted by electric winch, allowing use in shallow water making it easily transportable without a crane. The cozy interior can comfortably accommodate four people. Motorization is available as an option with an integrated electric motor or outboard motor. Learn more

Hallberg-Rassy 69 (20.96 x 5.89 m)

At the Düsseldorf Boat Show we will finally get a first-hand look at the new Hallberg-Rassy 69, the largest yacht ever built by the shipyard. This 69-footer, of course designed by Germán Frers, is designed to be run as a family, through the use of electric winches, but, for those who wish, there is also room on board for a deckhand or skipper. The interior is on one level throughout the boat. Like any self-respecting Hallberg-Rassy, the 3.5-meter-long cockpit is protected by a tempered glass windshield, and tall guardrails run all around it. There is, of course, a large engine room, which is easily accessible so that action can be taken if necessary even while underway. Learn more

Hanse 410 (12.55 x 4.29 m)

Hanse at the Düsseldorf boat show will be present with as many as three new products, two of which (one boat under 40 feet and one over 50 feet) are still under embargo. The new Hanse 410, on which we have already had the opportunity to go on board at the Genoa Boat Show, will also be on display in Düsseldorf. A boat that bears the signature of French studio Berret-Racoupeau and is distinguished by an inverted bow, integrated dolphin boat, and a promisingly shaped hull for optimum performance. The edges continue from bow to stern, improving stability and making the most of interior volumes. The windows change, compared to the 418 it replaces, will still be three, but with the central one far more extended and streamlined. On the “old style,” however, the configuration of the deckhouse and paramare running aft. Less engine, less fuel consumption, with the option of electric propulsion to cruise with zero emissions.

Boot Düsseldorf. Jeanneau Yachts 55 (16.93 x 4.99 m)

Boot Düsseldorf. Jeanneau Yachts 55The latest addition to the French shipyard’s dedicated luxury cruising range, Jeanneau Yachts 55 is an uncompromising super cruiser. Designed by Philippe Briand, in collaboration with Andrew Winch for the interior, it features very interesting innovative solutions, including direct entry from the cockpit to the aft cabins via dedicated entrances and an external (and protected) chart table. The interior can be transformed into an open space, thanks to the forward cabin, which can be equipped with sliding doors instead of traditional ones. Finally, the two rudder areas have been advanced a great deal to create a larger sundeck area aft.

Moody 48 DS (15.42 x 4.85 m)

The design of the Moody 48 DS is by Bill Dixon, who conceived a boat that the shipyard itself describes as a monohull,” that is, a monohull with some features typical of cruising catamarans. Featuring a panoramic deckhouse, the covered aft cockpit is connected to the interior dinette on one level, and a forward cockpit in front of the mast, complete with a table and seating, typical of catamarans. Interior options are available for up to three cabins, with as many bathrooms with separate showers. Learn more

RM 1080 (10.80 x 4 m)

Rendering of RM1080RM1080, also known as RM-K, is a 36-footer still under development. Designed by Marc Lombard, she features modern lines, an inverted foredeck, and an imposing dolphin deck. The distinguishing feature is the convertible full beam cockpit, offering versatility between sailing and relaxing. With extended wing guards and semi-rigid sprayhood, it provides optimal protection. The cockpit can be configured in different modes, creating large aft sundecks. The interiors favor panoramic views, with raised kitchen area and square. The philosophy behind the RM1080 project reflects the RM tradition of leisurely sailing on performance monohulls. The first RM1080 is scheduled to be launched in July 2024.

Saffier SL46 (14.90 x 4.45 m)

The Dutch shipyard Saffier, which specializes in daysailing boats, is reinventing itself and presenting a brand new product in Düsseldorf: a 15-meter that combines the performance and elegance of smaller models in a new, larger format. This new flagship belonging to the Saffier Luxury range joins the Worldclass Daysailers (SC and SE), and will be launched in June in MED and NORTH versions. The SL 46 MED features an open stern, with helmsman seats that can be converted into sunbeds.

In contrast, the SL 46 North offers a more sheltered cockpit and garage under the sundeck for the dinghy. This model will stand out, like the yard’s others, for ease of handling in small crews, high performance and comfort. In Dusseldorf you will have a chance to see a mock-up of it; the boat will be launched around July 2024. Learn more

Boot Düsseldorf. Sunbeam 29.1 (8.99 x 2.49 m)

Boot Düsseldorf. Sunbeam 29.1Sunbeam, a well-known Austrian brand, has chosen an innovative direction by focusing on smaller boats under 32 feet. The new SUNBEAM 29.1 follows the success of the 32-footer, offering a modern, sporty style ideal for short cruises. With a hydraulic canting keel, it can sail in shallow water and is trolleyable. The bright and versatile interior, together with the high standard of construction quality, ensure great on-board comfort.

Sun Odyssey 350 (10.40 x 3.59 m)

The stepless stern-deck configuration simplifies circulation, while the elimination of the backstay expands helmsman and cockpit space. Also available with an electric propulsion, for coastal sailing. Learn more

Swan 51 (16.90 x 4.85 m)

After unveiling the first renderings at the last Cannes Boat Show, the Swan shipyard will offer an immersive 3D experience of the new Swan 51 in Düsseldorf. The model, an evolution of the first Swan 51 from 1981, the first boat to bear the signature of renowned naval architect Germán Frers, like its predecessor was designed to bridge the gap between the current Swan 48 and Swan 55, completing the range of “small” performance cruisers. Swan 51 is available in three different configurations Standard (cruising), Comfort and Sport that suit the owner’s sailing style. Comfort version, includes a first in the Swan world: the Arch Concept, a roll bar similar to that seen on X-Yachts X6, which acts as a guide for the mainsail sheet, to keep the cockpit clear, and as a support for the bimini.

Wauquiez 55 (17.50 x 5.25 m)

With the Wauquiez 55, the French shipyard famous for its Pilot Saloons (boats with a fully windowed deckhouse and raised saloon, so that even from the inside you have a wide view of the deck, sails and surroundings) challenges tradition and presents a boat with a bold, modern design. The challenge is to Combine the efficiency of a racing boat with the comfort of a deck saloon. A yacht with a dual identity characterized by a distinctive design (with “arched” edges running along the bulwarks, an inverted prow, and a long integrated dolphin boat that brings the overall length to 17.50 m) and, above all, equipped to be a perfect blue water from long sailing. The interior, designed by Stéphane Roséo, combines elegance and practicality, with spacious cabins and quality finishes. Learn more
