Boot Düsseldorf 2020 preview

The Boot Düsseldorf, the largest on-land show is kicking-off this weekend. The German Show will host many worldwide premiere and many interesting yacht.
Here are some of them

Absolute Yachts

Absolute will display the Absolute Navetta 52, the Absolute 47 Fly, the Absolute 50 Fly and the Absolute 62 Fly

Absolute Navetta 52

This planing Navetta is characterized by her robust but harmonious appearance, with a very large upper deck and wide glass windows. Inside the main living room, you can experience a 360-degree view and enjoy much higher livability than on similar-size boats. EmpirBus automation technology is integrated into the dashboard, directly accessible from the bridge.The lower deck accommodates three cabins—two doubles and one twin—and two bathrooms.

Absolute 62 fly

The new “Absolute 62 Fly” is the tangible proof that comfort, functionality and beauty can evolve, grow and increase without having to extend the facility and without the consequent greater burdens required. Coming on board the Absolute 62 Fly means savouring a multisensorial experience recalled by a constant prevalence of contrasts and consonances, where the combinations between different shades and materials embody an innovative and timeless stylistic features of elegance.

Absolute 47 Fly

“The Absolute Gateway”, the 47 Fly, represents the big step towards the Absolute world, that “border” beyond which new scenarios, new opportunities, new discoveries and new challenges open up. An emblematic model of freedom, dynamism and agility that takes us to unexplored horizons of technology and space optimization.The refined lines are the setting for a very spacious and well-organized flybridge area, fully equipped, and a very large sunbathing area towards the bow to make the most of the moments spent outdoors.

Arcadia Yachts
Ten years have passed since the first A85 was presented to the public at BOOT Düsseldorf 2010, marking the introduction of a new concept of yacht. The SHERPA XL (the successor of SHERPA) is another step in the growth process of ARCADIA philosophy, giving life to a new line of yachts next to the historical A line. Arcadia Yachts is therefore celebrating its first ten years by presenting in Germany the latest addition to the family, the SHERPA XL.

The spaces inside the new SHERPA XL efficiently use every inch of the vessel’s 24-metre overall length and (especially) the approx. 7-metre beam, which is greater than the average 6.4 metre beam of yachts in the 85-90 feet category available on the market. This means that the overall living area is 220 square metres inside and outside thanks to the side garage solution.

The concept of the SHERPA XL develops around the arrangement of the decks. The bow decks are staggered, so there is one central staircase with reduced height differences. This unusual layout has permitted to achieve large spaces in a limited height, arranging volumes in unusual ways. 

Azimut Yachts
At Boot 2020 Azimut will be exhibiting six yachts totalling over 120 meters in length: the S Collection flagship Grande S10, which at nearly 29 meters in length is the largest yacht the brand has ever taken to Boot, the S6 in a new version, the Azimut 78 and 72 from the Flybridge Collection, the Atlantis 45 and the Magellano 53.

Besided the GrandeS10 who has been one of the stars at September’s boat shows on the French riviera,

azimut Grande S10

the other novelty at the German boat show will be the S6 Sportfly, a new version of the hugely successful S6 featured in the famous Times Square installation last spring. While retaining the collection’s sporty DNA, the boat is enhanced by a spacious and comfortable extra lounge area on the pilot house roof. Access to the flydeck and the second helm station is provided by a retractable stairway.

Azimut S6 Sportfly

Last but not least is the 72 Flybridge, which will be presented here with a new interior design that reasserts the brand’s stylistic hallmarks: flowing lines are accompanied by distinctive features like the ceilings, while the surfaces are enhanced by a play on contrasts between brushed and textured varieties of wood, adorned with polished mahogany detailing.

Besenzoni will attend the German boat show and will display its entire range of tailor-made products designed for all types of boats, including the Unica collection, developed to satisfy the growing market of superyachts, with its extensive range of high-quality and fully-customized solutions. 

The protagonists will be Besenzoni’s gangways, highly requested by Boot’s customers. The range is transversal and goes from the basic and essential manual gangways to the high range of retractable hydraulic and rotating ones, including gangways designed for double use – both as gangway and crane for launching / recovering tenders and water-toys. 

Pilot seats will be another key product on display. Besenzoni is the market leader in this segment, featuring a highly flexible design and using state-of-the-art production techniques. With these seats, the Sarnico company is able to provide “tailor-made” solutions that can meet the requirements of the most demanding shipowners while reflecting the latest trends highlighted by our architects and designers.

World debut at Boot Düsseldorf  for the DutchCraft 25 that is a full-electric, carbon fiber tender with a modular deck design that allows for fast and easy changes between operational modes such as dive boat, sport fisher, toy carrier and family cruiser. True to the DutchCraft ethos of providing practical and flexible watercraft with owner enjoyment leading design, the DC25 has many similarities to its big sister, the DC56.

The key to the DC25’s versatility is its low and compact drivetrain, allowing an exceptional amount of deck space to be put to use. Behind the center console, furniture and fixtures are quickly interchanged along double deck railings, such as padded bench seating or custom dive racks. When the deck is cleared, there is enough space to transport a land vehicle or a pair of jetskis. 

An ideal superyacht tender, the DC25 is able to carry more toys and accessories than any other boat of its size. Load up the deck with guest luggage, provisions or accessories for a day’s adventures ashore. Additional padded benches convert the DC25 into a comfortable guest shuttle with space for up to 12 passengers. 

Ferretti Group
Ferretti Group will line up a fleet of six yachts in Düsseldorf. There will be two premières: Riva Dolceriva, making its debut on the German market, and a world première, a Pershing Generation X model in the 50-to-70 feet segment. The two premières will be accompanied by a number of the Group’s hugely successful models Ferretti Yachts 670 and Ferretti Yachts 780, Riva 90’ Argo and 48’ Wallytender.

Riva Dolceriva
Born of the collaboration between Officina Italiana Design and the Ferretti Group’s Dolceriva is 14.92 metres (48 ft) long with a full beam of 4.26 metres (14 ft).

Riva Dolceriva

The latest spellbinding creation by Riva is a 48’ open yacht designed to offer unrivalled on-board comfort. The objective is to challenge the market segment with a series of unprecedented features: a brand new exterior design developed by Officina Italiana Design, which ushers in a new style philosophy for all Riva models; a perfectly optimised use of all the on-board spaces; and an exciting array of details that pays homage to the brand’s incomparable heritage.

Pershing Generation X
Resulting from the collaboration between the Fulvio De Simoni’s design studio and the Ferretti the new star of Generation X expands the Brand’s current range, entering the over 20 metres market segment with a competitive product that embodies a genuine evolution from the point of view of style and functionality as well as performance.
Carbon fibre, the primary construction material, was the inspiration for the concept of a design focused on greater weight reduction, also by means of various construction solutions.

Gulf Craft

Majesty 140

Together with its German dealer – Drettmann International, Gulf Craft will be exhibiting at the Dusseldorf Boat Show 2020 and displaying a number of beautifully crafted scale models including the Majesty 140, 122, 100 and the Nomad 75 SUV.

Invictus Yachts
World debut at the German international boat show for the new GT 320 Atelier, a special version of one the most iconic Invictus models – the Owner requested an elegant and unusual combination of colours. The shiny black hull and the Personal White sides are in chromatic contrast, like the “Eclipse” cockpit, with black and cream coloured leatherette and backrests in ivory fabric, creating a natural linen effect.

The reverse bow – one of the distinguishing features of T range – has been further adjusted to deliver a deeper sense of elegance. This feature is emphasized by the oval-section handrail, running on the entire length of the boat, from the upper side down to the stern platform. 

First-time participants at the Boot include the CX270 and GT280S, both with outboard motors 

Lomac will attend the Boot with five models belonging to four of its ranges.
Adrenalina 8.5 was chosen from the Adrenalina line ─ dedicated to a medium-high segment of the market and composed of luxurious maxi ribs with a sporty, clean and innovative line. The aggressive style is a concept by Federico Fiorentino; designed for fast navigation, it offers a high level of comfort even when the anchor is dropped.

Adrenalina 8

Two models of the IN range will be exhibited. The 850 IN ─ designed for families but suitable for owners looking for high performance – has a table with adjustable legs on the stern, which can be transformed into a sundeck, seatings with a sink and a toilet or stowage room, while on the bow there is another seating and a locker.


The awning is combined with a fiberglass roll bar that can be extended to cover the bow area. 710 IN, with its 7 meters in length, is characterized instead by its 175 cm sundeck situated at the bow, while the console hides a dressing room with a toilet and the stern’s sofa can be transformed into a sundeck for two people. The maximum power available is 200 hp.

The 430 was chosen from the CLUB range (overall lenght of 4.37 meters and width of 1.91 meters), designed to ensure maximum reliability and performance for those who sail for a living. Finally, the last rib at the German Boat Show will be the 300 LX, which is part of the group of models born as tenders but also ideal for small coastal pleasures or inland waters.

Mangusta will display at the Boot the scale model of its latest project: the Mangusta Sport 104 penned by Igor Lobanov. Redesigning a yacht that made maxi open history is no easy feat. And yet Igor Lobanov has somehow managed to craft the most beautiful Mangusta Open in history in just three deft pencil strokes.

The new Mangusta 104 is the embodiment of the speed, comfort and elegance typical of these yachts. It also, however, adds its own irresistible charm to the yard’s tradition and know-how, thanks to an ultra-spare exterior design so sleek that even at anchor, it exudes a sense of speed and dynamism.

The most obvious stylistic innovation is the design of the sides where large windows allow natural light to stream into the master suite and guest cabins, and have actually become one of the model’s trademarks. The beautifully flush windows are an engineering masterpiece in their own right.

Other standout features are the captivating design of the opening transom which underscores the aggressive profile, and the beautifully integrated sundeck which winds its way smoothly around the radar dome. The customisable interiors are designed for long, comfortable Mediterranean cruising.  

Nerea Yacht
Exactly one year after its world debut in Germany, Nerea Yacht returns to Dusseldorf from to present the NY24 in a completely new guise, and to offer the public the development in three versions of the outstanding model: Deluxe , GT and Limo.

The NY24 Deluxe has a new ‘dark bronze livery’, made with warm and metallic colors, for an extremely elegant and sophisticated look. Signed by the Italian designers Alessio Battistini and Davide Bernardini of ideaeITALIA, the original day cruiser is the quintessence of modern but timeless design.

Palm Beach GT50 open
The Palm Beach 50GT Open will make her German debut in Düsseldorf. The boat has an open main-deck arrangement that deepens the connection with the sea for her owners and guests, and combines it with the well-matched hull and propulsion package that places the GT series of yachts in a performance class all their own.

The design is hard to miss: beneath a forward-swept radar arch, an amidships social area has facing settees: an L-shaped settee to port is served by a dining table. Forward is the command station to starboard, served by helm and companion seats, while a pair of additional forward-facing companion seats.

A carbon-fiber-framed windscreen wraps around the area, allowing the crew to enjoy the day in comfort even as the boat realizes her exhilarating performance. 


The SL96Asymmetric is the daring new creation of Sanlorenzo makes its world debut at Boot Düsseldorf.


Continuing and consolidating the progress that began with the SL102Asymmetric, the world’s first asymmetric yacht, with this new creation Sanlorenzo confirms its particular approach to the concept of space, shaping it each time to give rise to projects tailored to meet the desires of yachtsmen. The asymmetry makes it possible to revise conventional onboard balances, offering not just volumes previously set aside for other functions, but also and above all new living scenarios, new vantage points capable of intensifying and encouraging that innate visual, physical and emotional bond that exists between human beings and the sea.


With the aim of achieving greater livability of internal spaces and improved communication with the outside world, the SL96Asymmetric rethinks the conventional layout of a yacht, conserving only the gangway on the starboard side and eliminating the one on the port side, which shifts to the roof of the superstructure, in an unprecedented asymmetrical configuration that frees up about 10 square meters of space for internal use. With respect to a traditional layout, this arrangement offers more space, improving luminosity and flexibility.

The asymmetric concept is the result of a meeting of different creative minds. From an original idea of Chris Bangle, the brilliant car designer, to the in-house technicians and designers of the shipyard, and then to Bernardo Zuccon, the young architect from a family of yacht designers, who together with the studio Zuccon International Project is creating many projects for Sanlorenzo.The interior design has been done by the architect Laura Sessa, chosen for her ability to translate the “made-to-measure” philosophy of Sanlorenzo into an effective project with a personal touch.

Sanlorenzo SX76

On display there will be also the SX76

Solaris Power
After the successful launch of the Lobster 55 and of the 48 Open, both having sold several units even before the official presentation at the Cannes Boat Show, Solaris Power is now introducing the brand new 48 Lobster Flybridge: like its predecessors, this is a very technical boat which privileges seagoing performance, functionality, safety and seaworthiness.

The new Solaris Power 48 Lobster Flybridge has been conceived by the same winning team that developed the previous models: Norberto Ferretti, Brunello Acampora and Giuseppe Giuliani.
The boat comprises an array of unique features, compared to similar competitors, and guarantees superior comfort and livability, both inside and outside.

Its leading-edge Volvo IPS propulsive technology is specifically integrated with the hull shape, a solution with no comparison in this yachting segment.

The 48 Lobster Flybridge sails both at low speed in displacement and planes at maximum speed of over 30 kts unlike the rest of the planing hulls. This unique capability allows to tackle long journeys in adverse weather conditions with total safety and great range. 

The Boot is the location chosen to host the world debut of the PIRELLI 42, a 13.10-meter long walkaround with a sporty look and sophisticated detailing designed in partnership with celebrated Swedish firm Mannerfelt Design Team, the PIRELLI 42 is a versatile craft created for use as both an everyday chase boat or a mid-range cruiser. 

Featuring forward and aft sunpads, a day area with an outdoor table, and an underdeck with transforming dinette and bathroom, this walkaround combines performance, comfort and design. With this new model featuring aggressive lines and fine detailing, TecnoRib signs up not only for a boating season that promises to be packed with success, but also for a range renewal underscored by big spaces and a special focus on design. 

Following an outstanding reception at this year’s most important autumn boat shows, with seven units already sold, the 48 Wallytender will make its German debut at the Boot Düsseldorf. 


The original Wallytender concept opened a new market as a standalone runabout, ideal for day or overnight cruising and not just as a tender for a larger yacht or private villa. The new model retains the stylish solutions that define the Wally philosophy of combining form and function, but introduces innovative new features to enhance the yachting experience.

The 48 Wallytender has generous interior volumes with an elegant suite combining the sailing heritage of teak decking with panels and fittings in carbon fibre, a material introduced to the yachting world by Wally in 1991. The challenge here was to raise the freeboard without losing the purity of the hull lines associated with all Wally yachts.

The 48 Wallytender is the only boat in its segment to offer as standard fold-down bulwark sections to increase the swim platform for relaxation and gathering moments at anchor. Another relevant feature is the retractable passerelle that doubles as a swim ladder, also included as standard
