US Yachts - New boats on show during January
Tue, 11 Dec 2012
January is boat show month for US Yachts, with three brand new models on display at US Yachts’ Darling Harbour base – the Salona 35, the Hunter 33 and the Hunter 36.
The much-anticipated Salona 35 will make her Australian debut in January, and is available for sale. Salona Yachts build world-class performance cruising yachts, and the new Salona 35 is arguably one of the best yet. Construction, technology and innovation are key, ensuring the Salona 35 can perform on the race course, and still be extremely comfortable for relaxing passages or weekend cruising.
The immensely popular new model Hunter 33 will also be on show. This award-winning yacht has been a big success in Australia – it’s a sleek, dynamic yacht that will make you want to get out on the water – and stay there!She has large side windows, a fold down swim platform and telescoping swim ladder for those balmy summer days, as well as all the latest intelligent enhancements and must-have technology.
The interior is divine, with Corian countertops, a very roomy salon and a master aft cabin that is class and comfort.
The new Hunter 36 is a star performer as well, featuring the new sleek design found on the Hunter 39 and Hunter 50, and a hull design that is even further advanced. The deck features large side windows ensuring more interior light while the cockpit has been lengthened and bolstered by a fold down swim platform. The telescopic stainless steel ladder, allows swimmers to reboard easily after aquatic fun and games, and the longer cockpit allows for a larger and more airy master aft cabin.
All yachts are available for inspection from the first week in January with test sails available.
In what is going to be a big year for US Yachts, the new Hunter 40 will arrive in March, 2013. US Yachts was named as number one in the world for Marlow Hunter in 2012 for customer service and number two dealer worldwide for volume sales. A massive achievement. The awards were presented in Annapolis on October 6, 2012.
