UK and show debuts from Bluegame, Beneteau and Protector Boats at SIBS 2022
The BGX60 motoryacht is making its show debut at the Southampton International Boat Show (SIBS) 2022, represented by Ancasta International Boat Sales.
Beneteau’s Oceanis 34.1, Gran Turismo 45 and Swift Trawler 48 are also making their show debuts at SIBS, which runs from 16-25 September, 2022.
In addition, and represented by PB Europe, Protector Boats is making its UK show debut with its innovative Protector 330 Chase and 380 Targa leisure and utility craft.
Bluegame is a brand of Sanlorenzo which offers yachtsmen a totally new style of living life at sea, reinventing traditional layouts. The highly customisable design of the 62ft BGX60 is both disruptive and innovative, with the owner-centric layout placing the master cabin at the centre of the yacht, creating an unprecedented, multifunctional living space.
Designed for long journeys with a cruising speed of 27knots, the BGX60 combines excellent performance from twin Volvo Penta IPS1050 or IPS1200 engines with extraordinary seaworthiness, ensuring maximum comfort and safety in all weather conditions.
Beneteau Swift Trawler 48
The new Beneteau Swift Trawler focuses on practical and easy onboard living. Panoramic views are afforded from the 20 sqm flybridge, while the aft cockpit can accommodate a folding table and two director’s chairs, which, together with the large bench seat, maximise the indoor/outdoor living space.
The hull has been optimised to provide a boat that is both comfortable and efficient. The slender bow is remarkably seaworthy, which reduces fuel consumption to give 600 nautical miles of range at nine knots and makes sailing safer.
Beneteau Gran Turismo 45
The Beneteau Gran Turismo 45 sets new standards in terms of functionality and onboard hospitality. With sleek lines and a sporty hull, this 14.78-metre yacht boasts elegant details such as the metallic grey “fashion plates” fixed to the sides of the hard-top and on the engine air intakes.
The cockpit of the Gran Turismo 45 is furnished with a vast U-shaped seat that creates a comfortable and sociable area for guests, which includes a wet bar and retractable TV.
With Volvo Z-Drive D6-380/DPH (2X380 CV/HP) or the Volvo D6-IPS 600 (2X 440 CH/HP) inboard engines and an Air Step hull, the Gran Turismo 45 offers outstanding performance and optimal safety, whatever the conditions.
Beneteau Oceanis 34.1
A versatile cruiser with a contemporary design, the Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 offers better close-hauled pitch control and a more stable helm when heeling owing to the extra width added to a third of the bow. Less underwater surface area improves the boat’s performance and makes sailing more pleasurable in light wind and medium conditions.
The uncluttered layout and roof-top position of the mainsheet provides a spacious cockpit that is ideal for relaxation whether under sail or at anchor, and a stylish swim platform provides easy access to the sea.
With the option of two or three double cabins and a head compartment, the interior of the Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 is bright and airy, with multiple deck hatches, hull portholes and long windows in the hull.
Protector 330 Chase
On show for the first time in the UK, the 34ft 7in Protector Chase 330 is a high-performance centre console RIB which has found popular application at the world’s largest sailing events and, with capacity for 12 people and plenty of room for kit, it’s also proved popular with recreational users.
Protector 380 Targa
From New Zealand’s leading producer of high-performance rigid inflatable boats, the 40ft Protector 380 is an extremely capable and comfortable bluewater performer and, with its 15-person capacity and a cruising speed of 30 knots, it’s ideal for recreational use worldwide.
