Fjord 41XL

We have just seen the 12-metre powerboat segment (click here). Today we’re going up a size and seeing what’s new in the 13-metre segment: the difference seems small, but it leaves room for technical innovations and customisation. Here are 5 new 13-metre boats!

New innovative 13-metre boats


Sea Ray SLX-R 400 E – 12.04 m

It is certainly among the most innovative boats of 2020, destined to make its mark in terms of innovation. The “e” in the SLX-R 400 E’s name indicates how electronics and electricity are central to this boat. She is the first to be equipped with the Fathom e-Power high-capacity lithium-ion system, which replaces the traditional on-board generator and has a range of 8 hours without recharging. The propulsion of this 12-metre boat is entrusted in the standard version to three 350 horsepower Mercury Verados combined with a joystick control system. The layout of the Sea Ray SLX-R 400e offers seating for 22 passengers. The cabin has four berths.


LOA: 12.04 m (with platforms) / 12.78 m (outboard) – B.max: 3.68 m – Draft: 1.14 m (0.81 ouboard up) – Weight: 8.408 kg – Engine: Triple Mercury® 350 Verado® Outboards with Joystick Piloting – INFO:

43 wallytender – 13.22 m

Wally’s founder and designer Luca Bassani is one of the greatest innovators in the nautical world. No outboard for now for the new 13-metre Wally, which focuses on performance (up to 40 knots) and a well thought-out deck. The 43wallytender is a 13-metre with a very sheltered central cockpit to protect the comfort of guests in all circumstances. The result is a fast, comfortable and practical runabout, designed to be essential, easy to manoeuvre and which can also perform the function of a daycruiser without any problem. She can carry up to twelve people at speeds in excess of 40 knots.


LOA: 13.2 m – B.max: 4.30 m – Draft: 1.20 m – Displacement: 9 t – Fuel: 1.200 l – Water: 200 l – Engine: 2 x Volvo 380 HP (std) / 2 x Volvo 440 HP (opt) – Max speed: 36 / 40 knots – Passengers: 12 – INFO:

Frauscher 1212 Ghost – 11.99 m

The new Frauscher 1212 Ghost which represents the link between two cult models of the yard: the Frauscher 1017 and the 1414 Demon, 10 and 14 meters respectively. Frauscher’s 12-metre boat is the 1212 Ghost, the latest innovation from the Austrian shipyard, perfectly in line with the shipyard’s philosophy. A sporty and elegant line, therefore, for a true sea sportswoman. This model fits between the 1017 GT and GT-AIR and the 1414 Demon and Demon-Air. The large teak deck, the frameless windscreen and the vertical bow make the Frauscher 1212 Ghost unmistakably Frauscher.

The large side air intakes, already featured on the 747 Mirage and then on the 1414 Demon, are the design feature. The line is immediately recognisable in this way. In line with the demands of today’s shipowners, the aft section is characterised by the generous teak beach platform with “open” masonry profiling.

Sealine S430 – 13.55 m

The yard wants to design and build boats that are naturally lit and ventilated. From the open cockpit to the roof, which can be opened almost completely. The side windows, angled towards the rear, further blend the cockpit with its surroundings and give 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, but can also be converted into a large sunbathing area. Below decks, two exclusive double cabins, a bathroom and a freely configurable port cabin provide plenty of comfort and space for all the crew.
