Panorama Flatfloor and NG43 Offshore popular across Europe
A year that has started on a ‘high’ with the EPY award for the Panorama, also ends on a high for Steeler Yachts. Sales of the aluminium models over the last few months have been soaring to customers across Europe. Over the last three weeks four aluminium motoryachts were sold with several contracts pending in the pre-design phase.
Both the press and potential clients recognise the added value of the aluminium Steeler models: all the benefits of a custom made motoryacht... with highly efficient planing as a valuable bonus.
The Panorama Flatfoor will be sailing the waters of the Netherlands, Germany, France, Switserland and the UK as from next year and the NG43 Offshore has a promising start with 4 boats sold shortly after her introduction.
An introduction that did not remain unnoticed. The NG43 Offshore also received an European Powerboat of the Year nomination, the second consecutive nomination for Steeler. This back-to-back nomination in two different categories is a first in history and as a relatively new player in this market dominated by mass producers we are very proud of this achievement.
The Explorer range of classic steel displacement yachts is also booming, with a brand new Explorer 50 with raised pilothouse in production and an Explorer 50 in the design phase for a Swiss client.
Expansion of the NG line is nearing its completion with the NG36 and the NG57 under construction. In 2015, the NG43 once again proved to be the most popular model, especially the version with the extended wheelhouse providing unmatched comfort and accommodation in a 13 meter open cockpit. The Bronson tenders continue to attract attention from megayacht owners and demanding dayboat clients. The line will be expanded in 2016 with a 10 and a 14 meter version.
We believe the reasons behind the successful sales numbers are the level of individuality and customisation of each boat we sell and the obsession to deliver unmatched quality. A personal relationship with our clients and rapid response when after sales issues arise are also ingredients that we embrace. The whole Steeler team is dedicated to continue on this road and is committed to keep surprising our clients, and the market, with exceptional motoryachts and tenders in 2016.
We would like to thank all our clients and stakeholders for a beautiful 2015 and wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year !
We look forward to meeting you at the start of the new season at Boot Dusseldorf (Hall 6, stand D05)
