Caledonia is fully equipped for longer journeys at sea and she is currently en route to Kiel, Germany from where she will mostly explore the Baltic Sea. Trips along the German Coast, Denmark, Sweden and Norway are scheduled for her and most likely other destinations will follow.

We want to thank the owners for a wonderful construction period in which we could demonstrate that we are truly capable of fulfilling their personal wishes and building the yacht of their dreams.

Launch of 41 S-design with “Flying Chairs”

17/08/18

Steeler Yachts launched a very special edition of the Steeler 41 S-design this week! Together with the owner, the Steeler design team developed “Flying Chairs” for a Flybridge experience in a “coupe” design motoryacht. In combination with a second steering position mounted on the roof and a bimini top, the concept allows the owner and his wife to enjoy their cruises in the open air!  

The same comfortable chairs,  upholstered in luxurious leather, can also be used in the salon or in the cockpit.  

Perfect example of a project that reflects our reason for being … if you can dream it … we love to make it!  

Please note the happy faces on the photos ..  

More pictures of 41 S-design “Sunray” on our website soon.

Rotterdam – Gibraltar... on one fuel tank?
Yes, Steeler S-design can!

17/08/18

Our claim that our patented S-design is far superior in terms of fuel efficiency has already been proven but this is a special milestone for our shipyard : When 59 S-design “Ocean Camp” reached Gibraltar last week after travelling 1250 nautical miles, her total fuel consumption had been 3325 liters, 83 % of her total fuel capacity of 4000 ltrs. This translates to 2.66 liters per nautical mile during a trip that included a crossing of the Biscay Gulf and 7 Beaufort wind with 4 meter waves heading down from the southwest coast of the UK.

Apart from the low fuel consumption, the NG59 impressed her owners on their maidentrip with cruising in utmost stability and comfort. The pictures on our website of a relaxed captain in the middle of a jungle of waves speak for themselves.

In the meantime, the ‘Ocean Camp’ has reached Ibiza on her trip from Amsterdam to the Cannes Yachting Festival.

The Cannes Yachting Festival starts September 11th upto the 16th. Please visit Ocean Camp at stand PAN028!

STEELER 65S LI-JANNE WINS EUROPEAN POWER BOAT OF THE YEAR AWARD

STEELER 65S WINS EUROPEAN POWERBOAT OF THE YEAR AWARD 2019
Steeler Yachts in the Netherlands has won the European Powerboat of the Year 2019 award in the length-independent displacement hull class. Describing the long-range cruiser as “a very special boat for very special clients”, the judges praised the custom-built 19.50-metre Li-Janne for many features, including for proving that families with disabled children can still enjoy a luxury yachting experience.

This is the fifth year in succession that Steeler Yachts has been nominated for the European Powerboat of the Year award and the third time that the premium Dutch yard has come out as winner. Since launching its patented S-Design hull, which combines high speeds with ultra-low fuel consumption, minimal spray and exceptional interior volume, Steeler has gone from strength to strength. The S-Design is available in steel (long range), aluminium (high performance) and trawler versions, with a flybridge option for the larger models.

A superb example of the long-range cruiser line, the European Powerboat of the Year winner Li-Janne was delivered to her owners in the summer of 2018. Custom-created for a Dutch family looking to sail with their handicapped daughter, the yacht includes dedicated wheelchair access, entrance via both side decks, a hydraulic lift, a specially adapted cabin and triple-redundant hydraulics to ensure constant medical treatment. Li-Janne also benefits from the assets that all Steeler yachts have in common in terms of exceptional engineering & construction, maximum comfort and an unrivalled standard of quality and detail.

“Li-Janne proves that it is possible to build modern, smart steel yachts for the disabled,” announced the jury for the European Powerboat of the Year award 2019. “She is equipped with everything that disabled people need to enjoy life onboard. Clear lines, no frills, exquisite finish… This Steeler 65S meets all these requirements and is a very special boat for very special customers.”

“We are thrilled and honoured to win this award,” says Hans Webbink, director of Steeler Yachts. “Every Steeler tells a story and the success of Li-Janne is a tribute to the vision of her owners and their desire to create a bespoke motoryacht for all the family. At Steeler we pride ourselves on listening carefully to our clients’ wishes and translating them into smart and innovative solutions. Li-Janne is a fantastic example of how this custom approach pans out in practice and why a Steeler is a thrill to build as well as own.”
