Today we delivered the Steeler Explorer 50 Pilothouse “Caledonia” to its owners.


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”


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!


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!

Our “First Star” finally touched base in homeport Seattle.


After a journey crossing the Atlantic, through the Panama Canal and cruising the pacific on a RO-RO transport vessel, “First Star” arrived on time.

The boat will undergo beautiful journeys in Puget Sound and other surrounding waters, more pictures will follow soon!

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)

Truly Yours,
Steeler Yachts
