In addition to the Grand Sturdy 450 AC Variotop® introduced at the end of last year and Linssen Yachts' flagship, the Grand Sturdy 500 AC Variotop®, this line will now be extended with the Grand Sturdy 480 AC Variotop®.

Perfect dimensions

With a length of 14.95 m and a width of 4.65 m, it is larger than the 450 so that three sleeping cabins are possible, but slightly shorter and narrower than the 500. Just like the 500, the Grand Sturdy 480 AC Variotop® has six permanent sleeping places in three cabins, a spacious saloon with an L-shaped bench and a large starboard galley. The port side features the dinette and a spacious cupboard unit. The dimensions of the 480 have been chosen in such a way that sailing on European inland waterways, as well as in coastal and marine areas presents no problem. It is shorter, narrower and lower than the 500 and therefore almost all inland waterways can be sailed with this imposing vessel. Without compromising on luxury, comfort and safety compared to the 500, the new Grand Sturdy 480 AC Variotop® is slightly more manoeuvrable on the various inland waterways.

The Linssen Variotop® – a steering salon that combines both inside and outside steering positions – is unique in yacht building. The concept that Linssen has been applying since 1996 has been technically developed to such an extent that it is not only being used in the 450 and 500, but now in the 480 too, making it a fully-fledged yacht series.


Linssen will be introducing the Grand Sturdy 480 AC Variotop® at its annual Boat Show in November (16, 17 and 18 November).
