Boot Düsseldorf: 6 new boats under 50 feet


Frauscher 1414 Demon Air

All the lines are signed by Studio Kisk with the straight and vertical bow, the walls with the carving “Z-shaped” and the windshield without a frame. An aggressive appearance has given both by the shape of the hull and the side air intakes, made of carbon, a material that the shipyard uses for its lightness and strength.

Thanks to the central and rear position of the wheelhouse, the Air variant offers more space and comfort than the previous Frauscher models. One of the distinctive features of this yacht is the T-top, made of carbon fiber and weighing only 150 kilos.

1414 Demon Air is manufactured entirely in Frauscher’s Ohlsdorf, Austria; here the company can offer its customers a very high level of customisation, starting with the colour of the hull and trim or the choice of engines, through to the materials used, the sound system or the on-board electronics. Frauscher models are distributed exclusively in Italy by Cantiere Nautico Feltrinelli, based in Gargnano.

Windy SR44 Blackhawk outboard

The successor to the highly successful Windy SR52 Blackbird, comes with a new version, the outboard powered SR44 Blackhawk. The look is that of a modern daycruiser that reinterprets without upsetting the lines of the walkaround that has been going on lately. Beautiful to see, it looks bigger than its real size, especially when compared to some of its direct competitors.

Very open has the plan divided into distinct areas with the sunbathing areas at the ends. The T-Top is kept joined to the windscreen by the two side pillars.

The high freeboard allows the walls to be raised to protect the guests on board. Careful attention to detail and at superyacht level some details that make it special. Like the steps that make it easy to enter and exit from the side. They are made of teak, foldable foldable in the impavata and equipped with courtesy LEDs for night use.

Below deck main cabin forward plus two more berths below the cockpit, in a compartment large and bright enough to allow a couple of adults to sleep. For the motorization, the Windy SR44 Blackhawk is open to all solutions. With aft foot or IPS transmission with Volvo Penta engines for up to 880 HP.

Solaris Power 48 Lobster Flybridge

The new 48 Lobster Flybridge has arrived and wants to make its strong points the performance at sea, in terms of safety and seafaring. As for the other Solaris Powers in the control room there were Norberto Ferretti, Brunello Acampora and Giuseppe Giuliani.

Displacement at low speed and planing for when sailing at over 30 knots with Volvo IPS propulsion technology, designed specifically for the hull of this boat.

A new generation flybridge with exterior lines reminiscent of a modern version of the American lobster. Also in the 48 Lobster Flybridge, Norberto Ferretti has paid particular attention to comfort and liveability by creating a walkaround to go from bow to stern of the boat in comfort and safety.

The new Solaris Power 48 Lobster Flybridge is offered with 2 engines – VOLVO IPS 600 or 650 – and is able to reach over 30 knots top speed, sailing at a cruising speed of 20 knots with an autonomy of about 300 miles.




Sealine S430

A very interesting preview from the shipyard that wants to carry on the “here comes the sun” campaign, that is to design and build naturally lit and ventilated boats. How? Starting from the open cockpit to the roof, almost completely openable. The side windows, inclined towards the rear, further merge the cockpit with the surrounding environment giving the boat a sporty look.

The U-shaped cockpit saloon can be variably arranged to facilitate access to the hydraulically lowerable bathing platform as required. This boat is designed for families and, above all, groups of friends. This is demonstrated by the four seats in the direction of travel which also make sailing a convivial moment.

Below decks, the living area includes a large saloon with designer seats and a fully equipped galley. Two exclusive double cabins, a bathroom and a freely configurable port cabin offer much comfort and space for the entire crew.

Bavaria SR41


The new line of motorboats that combines the best of the Bavaria S and Bavaria R sports line. A comfortable cockpit, a large sunbed which can be transformed in no time into a lounge area with a table right on the waterfront and a large bathing platform. It makes the Bavaria SR41 the ideal motor yacht for c with family and friends.

The spacious owner’s cabin has its own bathroom, as do the guest cabins in the bow. The Bavaria SR41 is available as a soft top, hard top and coupe version. The powerful drive is provided by the familiar Mercruiser petrol engines with twin 355HP (261 kW) in the standard version, up to D6 -380 diesel generators from the newest generation from Volvo Penta, with twin 380HP (279kW). Large hull windows which fit perfectly into the broad black hull stripe ensure plenty of daylight below deck.

The Bavaria SR41’s unique design and layout were developed in cooperation by Marco Casali from Too Design in Italy and the Bavaria Yachts development team.

Riva Dolceriva 48

A Riva with a sporty look, a 48-foot open that brings the entire class of the Sarnico shipyard: Dolceriva. Riva Dolceriva is a pure and modern open, where, however, there is no lack of craftsmanship.

The bow surface of the deck deck is made with the traditional mahogany gloss varnish in twenty coats, interspersed on one side with crystal glass with an incorporated skylight, which allows the cabin below deck to have natural light.

This 48′ is designed to live on board with unparalleled comfort, which challenges its market segment with some strong points: a brand new exterior design developed by Officina Italiana Design; maximum use of space on board; attention to detail that enhances the incomparable heritage of a brand that has played a leading role in 177 years of nautical history and success.

The exterior design is faithful to Riva’s typical elegance, which follows the trends of the latest generation runabouts, characterized by the automotive style used in an absolutely marine way and the expression of luxury with a more sporty character. The design of the hull window is the result of complex technical research by Officina Italiana design: generated by a black pencil stroke along the silvery side, which goes up towards the deck.

The stern area, completely free from the knockout, leaves room for an air intake made of carbon fibre with a steel edge. To make this boat even more unique, the windscreen stands out, characterized by a slight counter-curvature, a detail destined to become a Riva style.
