With the 2023 season coming to an end there are many boats for 2024 that are starting to make waves. Also among the new additions, updating its weekender range, is Schaefer Yachts with the announcement of the new Schaefer 375, a sporty 12-meter* that nevertheless looks to comfort, with exteriors dedicated to relaxation and interiors capable of accommodating up to four people on board for the night.

Available with inboard or outboard (dual or triple) engines, the new 375 looks to the brand’s larger models, maximizing its space and trying to offer more volume than is actually on board. Folding down walls aside, always a treat, it also offers a gourmet station, that is, a range of kitchen solutions aimed at meeting a variety of needs. Looking forward to 2024, let us take a closer look at what is known so far.

Schaefer 375 – Exterior

Sleek hard top towards the stern, murals cut by dark glass windows, and low-set bow. The look at a glance is that of a sport-cruiser, especially in the triple outboard engine version (3×300 hp). Yet, aboard the Schaefer 375 it is comfort that wants to take over, with the stern immediately welcoming with an initial convivial space. As soon as you pass the outboard motor (in the versions where it is provided), the cockpit immediately begins, presenting itself as a single terrace on the water, partially protected by the hard top above. Here, in addition to the retractable bulwarks, there is a first central sofa, facing the middle of the boat and served by an expandable central table. Here, optionally, there is indeed a “gourmet station,” or a dedicated open-air cooking station, complete with grill.

Just below the hard top, however, the centerpiece of the boat comes to life, with an L-shaped sofa facing aft and the helm station just beyond, served by dual settee seating. Access to the below deck and bow are also found here, with the latter carved directly into a hatch in the windshield. To ventilate the entire area, a portion of the Hard-Top turns out to be openable, thus opening the dome wide at its top.

Finally, the bow concludes the open spaces with a lounge area consisting of a large sunpad recessed on the deckhouse.

Taking over to make the new 375 a weekender are the interiors, capable of accommodating up to 4 people for the night. As soon as you enter you are ushered into an anteroom with a refrigerator and sink, immediately followed by the forward lounge, a space consisting of a V-shaped sofa that can be converted into a double berth.

A second sleeping area then takes its place aft, with a double berth located in the spaces below the cockpit, just aft of the entrance. Finally, on the starboard side, standing between this and the living room, is the bathroom, complete and separate from the rest of the rooms.

Coming to the engine and performance aspects, as of now, the shipyard has released information regarding the possibility of seeing both inboard and outboard propulsions installed, with the latter option being able to meet needs related to torque or triplet. On the latter front, as shown in the photos, it is plausible that triple propulsion is provided by three 300-horsepower Mercurys. However, it is not yet possible to determine what is the maximum power that can be installed, nor what is the actual performance of the hull. In terms of range, however, there are two distinct fuel tank capacities related to the chosen engines, with 1035 liters serving outboard solutions, versus 690 liters capacity in the case of inboard solutions.
