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!

Eerste European Powerboat of the Year Award voor Steeler Yachts


Tijdens de 'Flagship Night' van de Düsseldorf Boatshow op 17 januari 2015 heeft de internationale jury van de prestigieuze verkiezing 'European Powerboat of the Year' de Steeler Panorama FlatFloor 46 uitgeroepen tot 'Europees motorjacht van het jaar 2015'. In haar rapport toonde de jury zich met name onder de indruk van het gelijkvloerse concept van de Steeler Panorama en de 360 graden panoramische ervaring. Dankzij de combinatie van een baanbrekend design en indrukwekkende cijfers ten aanzien van brandstofverbruik, geluidsniveaus en vaareigenschappen, werd de Panaroma FlatFloor als glorieuze winnaar verkozen boven vijf andere genomineerden in haar categorie.

Voor Steeler Yachts betekent de award een erkenning voor een strategie gebaseerd op innovatie en de durf om anders te zijn. Hans Webbink, CEO van Steeler Yachts: "Er is in feite helemaal geen marktonderzoek aan het concept van de Panorama FlatFloor voorafgegaan. Met onze bestaande modellen van de Steeler Next Generation en de Bronson tender kwamen we tegemoet aan de meeste eisen van onze doelgroep. Maar de drang was gewoon te groot om het idee van een gelijkvloers concept nader uit te werken, waarbij de beschikbare leefruimte aan boord verdubbeld zou worden ten opzichte van traditionele motorjachten. "
In samenwerking met Vripack Naval Architects nam het uitdagende ontwerpproces meer dan 1,5 jaar in beslag en werden er maar liefst drie versies van de Panorama ontwikkeld. Naast de bekroonde Panorama FF46, gebouwd van staal met waterverplaatsende romp en een snelheid van 11 knots, heeft Steeler Yachts ook nog een FF48 Offshore (aluminium, 23 knots) en een FF53 (aluminium, triple IPS, 34 knots) ontworpen, die er nu klaar voor zijn om gebouwd te worden.

Hans Webbink: "Wij zijn ervan overtuigd dat de voordelen van het FlatFloor-concept niet beperkt hoeven te blijven tot waterverplaatsers. De ongeëvenaarde ruimte en het unieke zicht en comfort van de Panorama FlatFloor bieden iedere jachteigenaar voor vrijwel alle vaargebieden een uitdagend alternatief voor de momenteel op de markt verkrijgbare (sport)cruisers en jachten."
