Largest ever Sunseeker launches
Wednesday, 09 April 2014 00:00

Largest ever Sunseeker launchesSunseeker International marked the official British launch of its new flagship tri-deck 155 Yacht with the help of its new owner, Formula 1’s Eddie Jordan.

The Formula 1 star was in attendance alongside Sunseeker International’s Group President, Robert Braithwaite. As the biggest project ever undertaken by the British based luxury yacht manufacturer, the official launch was a monumental day for Sunseeker.  Braithwaite commented: “We were incredibly proud to launch the 155 Yacht here in Poole with Mr Jordan. The 155 Yacht is a truly iconic British yacht. From drawing board through to testing, the yacht was designed and built in Poole, so it really is British through and through and the fact the launch took place in Poole made it all the more special.”

 
Whaly New Classic 440
Tuesday, 25 March 2014 00:00

Whaly New Classic 440This spring Whaly boats is introducing the new Whaly New Classic, a robust and elegant longboat. The New Classic is designed for electric propulsion (it's also suitable for a petrol outboard engine) and moves easily through the water. The U-shaped bench in the bow gives room to a lot of passengers and it has enough storage space below the seats. These features guarantee many hours of fun on the water.

 

The New Classic is available with and without a steering console. The console is located in the middle of the boat and the necessary cables are routed under the floor to the engine. Hereby sufficient living space is reserved when the captain prefers the comfort of a steering console. The integrated skid bracket in the rear protects the engine.

 

 
The J/88
Wednesday, 12 March 2014 00:00

88_1The J/88 is an 8m family performance boat with stability, style and sailing comfort. The J/88 fits nicely into J Boat’s performance sprit range – being large enough to provide the creature comforts of a sit-in cockpit, inboard diesel engine, overnighting interior and head and small enough to be single-point lifted, owner-trailered and stored.

Design highlights include a high-aspect, non-overlapping sail plan (no genoas) with a carbon fibre, double-spreader mast – deck stepped for easy rigging, tuning and keeping the main cabin dry. The 6.5 ft fixed, low VCG keel with moulded GRP finish is similar to the J/70’s, ensuring a fair, smooth foil for every boat.

On deck, the daysailing comforts include a spacious T-shaped cockpit similar to the J/111, with seating and backrests forward of the floor-mounted traveller and a wide-open cockpit aft due to the tiller-steered, transom mounted high-aspect rudder. Adding to J/88’s ease-of-sailing characteristics is an in-deck jib furler, retractable carbon bowsprit and cockpit-led sail controls. Below decks, the J/88 sports a weekending layout with two full length settees, Igloo cooler, galley sink, private head forward of bulkhead and optional V-berth.
