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!

FLAWLESS YACHT

30 June 2018 in VAREN magazine

A custom-built yacht is like a bespoke suit: it only fits its owner. But a yacht like this also projects the quality of its construction. In that respect, the new Steeler S- Design 65 is very highly rated: construction and finishing are at super yacht level.




The Steeler is a beautifully lined, modern motor yacht that exudes class. The Li-Janne is a striking sight in the port of Urk in the Netherlands. She towers high above the other yachts and attracts tourists who take a selfie with the light blue yacht. The yacht was designed by Martin Bekebrede, who refined and technically worked out the lines of shipyard owner Hans Webbink. Webbink is a well-known name in the world of water sports. He first bought the boat company Antaris and after the sale set up the Steeler shipyard. The Overijssel-based shipyard builds steel and aluminium yachts between 29 and 65 ft. The outlines of these are fixed, but the interior is in all cases composed together with the owner. Alongside the much-vaunted Next Generation line with a flared bow, the S-line stands out for its upright stem. The S-line is available in both aluminium and steel in lengths between 41 and 65 ft.

With a length of almost 20 metres, the tested S- Design 65 is the biggest yacht the shipyard has ever built. The steel yacht is solidly built and the paintwork is also of super yacht quality. The upright stem reduces resistance, which makes it easy for the boat to sail faster than its hull speed. Also, less spray is thrown up in waves. The yacht also stands out for having wheelchair access. This called for a number of adjustments, which are not only very smart, but also elegantly executed.

The standard fitting is the Steeler Digital Monitoring System, a system with digital circuits for all electrical items on board. On arrival we're given a short demonstration when a shipyard employee makes us jump by remotely operating the claxon. Of course, you can only log in with the customer's permission. The system simplifies all electrical circuits and allows the yard to offer remote assistance. Because of the wheelchair user's dependence on electrical equipment, all electrical systems feature redundancy. The hydraulics that power the lift systems, but also the bow and stern thruster and the gangways, even feature triple redundancy. Apart from the two engines, power is provided by a small generator.

The yacht has a superb, tasteful interior. The helm position is like a cockpit, with all the equipment and displays around the helmsman. There is a 360-degree view, and the sliding roof means that you can also enjoy the sun inside. The layout and design are determined together with the customer. Optimum use has been made of the space below decks. There are 8 comfortable sleeping berths next to the hugely spacious wheelchair room with its special stretcher shower.

The engine room is everything a technician could dream of. The equipment is easily accessible, all wiring is labelled and neatly tied up. Two Cummins QSL 9 diesel engines of 410 hp provide the propulsion. Thanks to an efficient underwater hull, they are quiet and economical even on a 54-ton heavy yacht. At cruising speed, 12 km p/h, the consumption is only 25 l/h per engine.

It is a pleasure to sail with the Steeler. The helm seat offers every conceivable comfort and even has an integrated joystick for control. The boat sails easily, does exactly what you expect and seems to invite you on a long journey through tumultuous waters. There is a Magnus roll damping system to prevent the yacht from rolling whilst cruising. In fact, this yacht is flawless. That's also reflected in the price: starting at €1,755,000.00
