This latest yacht from the Maasbracht yard is the flagship in the SL series and the first in this series to feature the Linssen Variotop®. The Variotop® combines an inside steering position, outside steering position, flybridge and bimini to create an extremely comfortable steering saloon where the entire crew can have a good time in all weathers. The canopy can be operated at the touch of a button. When a low bridge comes into view, the bracket in which the canopy folds can also be folded, reducing the clearance height to 3.49 metres.

Further highlights include the hydraulically pocketable bathing platform, full original Linssen teak deck, 400V bow and stern thrusters with proportional controls, hot water heating with radiators, biological sewage treatment plant, Linssen ICCESS system, 17.5 kW generator, a comprehensive navigation package including two 16" displays, two refrigerators, a dishwasher, washer/dryer and much more.
