Our anniversary year is almost over. It’s been a busy year, with many events celebrating our 70th anniversary, many boat shows with our firsts (the new Grand Sturdy 35.0 AC and Sedan and the 480 AC Variotop®) on display and many improvements and alterations to our production system. For example, the main warehouse has been upgraded to include a roller conveyor for incoming parcels, we have outsourced the cutting process, the hull plant has been remodelled so that we can now build all the hulls in one plant, and there’s a separate department where the entire Variotop® section is prefabricated. More about this in a later edition. We now focus on the upcoming Linssen Yachts Boat Show.
This 21st show is again packed full of new things. The most important of these is the launch of this year’s firsts:
• the Grand Sturdy 35.0 AC
• the Grand Sturdy 35.0 Sedan
• the Grand Sturdy 480 AC Variotop®
Grand Sturdy 35.0
The smooth lines of the silhouette reveal themselves in the beautifully curved three-part window section with an extra-large glass surface. The windows create a lot of light in the interior, with the colour structure from floor to ceiling providing an optimal spatial experience. This also means the maximum possible amount of daylight in the saloon.
To meet the requirements of our market, the Linssen Yachts design team, in collaboration with design studio KesselsGranger DesignWorks, has chosen a colour range that creates tranquillity but at the same time is also rich in contrast. This makes the 35.0, just like the 30.0, look even more spacious due to the interplay of light and the interior.
Grand Sturdy 480 AC Variotop®
In addition to the Grand Sturdy 450 AC Variotop® launched at the end of last year and the Linssen Yachts flagship, the Grand Sturdy 500 AC Variotop®, this line now also includes the Grand Sturdy 480 AC Variotop®.
With a length of 14.95 m and a width of 4.65 m, it is larger than the Grand Sturdy 450, so that three sleeping cabins can be provided, but slightly shorter and narrower than the 500. Just like the 500, the Grand Sturdy 480 AC Variotop® has six fixed berths in three cabins, a spacious saloon with an L-shaped sofa and a large starboard pantry. The dinette and a spacious cupboard unit are located on the port side. The dimensions of the Grand Sturdy 480 have been deliberately chosen to ensure that both European inland waterways and coastal and marine areas pose few navigation problems. The 480 is shorter, narrower and lower than the 500 and therefore almost all inland waterways can be sailed with this luxury yacht. Without compromising on luxury, comfort and safety compared to the 500, the new Grand Sturdy 480 AC Variotop® is a bit more manoeuvrable in the various inland waterways.
The Linssen Variotop® – a wheelhouse that combines an inside and outside steering position – is unique in yacht building. The concept that Linssen has been applying since 1996 has been technically refined to such an extent that it is now being applied to the Grand Sturdy 450, now the Grand Sturdy 480 and the Grand Sturdy 500, making it a fully-fledged yacht series.
Linssen SL Series. Timeless class
This new SL line is characterised by its rising waterline, which perfectly follows the curves of the bow and therefore has a sleek, modern look.
The window section in the superstructure is finished in dark contrasting shades of grey, giving it a unique look.
The sturdy rubber bumper adds the finishing touch.
In addition to the standard white hull colour, three unique colour palettes have been created as an optional extra, with a choice of green, blue or grey shades.
Modern yet timeless. That’s Linssen.
