The Original Dutch Sloop will bring a taste of European elegance to this year’s Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS) in May.

In a nod to its namesake, The Dutch Sloop is a classic example of what one might find cruising the canals of Amsterdam, complete with a luxury day bed and seating for 12.

Importer Rudy Walstyn said the superior design of the Dutch Sloop meant the boat was ideal for entertaining friends and family while enjoying our vast waterways in absolute style and comfort.

'This is a traditional European lounge boat which was made with European conditions in mind, but would consequently be a perfect cruiser from which to enjoy Australia’s magnificent waterways,' he said.

'It is diesel powered and has a shallow 39cm draft which means it is not only economical but also easy to navigate through shallower water with the aid of hydraulic steering and a bow thruster.'

Mr Walstyn said his boats were complemented by high quality parts which were imported from factories worldwide.

Features of the Dutch Sloop include a hand-laid CE certified fibreglass hull, bow thruster, 50 litre aluminium fuel tank and 27HP freshwater-cooled Craftsman Mitsubishi diesel engine.

The boats also include a ZF transmission and water-cooled shaft which drives the encased bronze propeller.

'This means increased longevity and very low maintenance, so it’s a pleasure for any skipper to own and operate,' Mr Walstyn said.



'The encased propeller allows the skipper to run aground without damaging the propeller, while also directing its thrust over the rudder to eliminate potential torque steer.'

Prices range from $39,999 to $49,999 for models 5.8 to 7.8 metres in length.

All boats are delivered on a galvanized trailer and are fully fitted-out with day bed, cushions, boat cover, canopy, navigation equipment, deck lights, bilge pump, fire extinguisher and quality Teak decking.

During SCIBS anyone who purchases a Dutch Sloop will also receive a Fusion remote controlled docking/sound system complete with speakers at no extra cost.

The importer is also inviting dealers from across Australia and New Zealand to express their interest as local agents for the unique Dutch Sloop.

More information about the Dutch Sloop can be found at www.dutchsloop.com.au or by visiting this year’s SCIBS.
