Windcraft Yachts' exclusive and long-standing relationship with top European brands Hanse, Dehler and Solaris means boating enthusiasts coming to this year's Sydney International Boat Show will be able to gauge firsthand why they are in the vanguard of yachting design and technology.

Show visitors will have the opportunity to inspect one model from each of the Solaris, Hanse and Dehler ranges, while those interested in the extremely popular outboard-powered sports dayboat category will be able to appraise the impressive all new RYCK 280.

At just over 14.3 metres the Italian built Solaris 47, the largest Windcraft yacht at this year's show will also undoubtedly be one of the most stylish. Indeed the 47's semi-flush deck profile, superb construction quality, and refined fit-out coupled with enviable performance have rightly drawn admirers right around the world.

Making its Australian boat show debut, the highly innovative Dehler 30 one design was created by famous design house Judel/Vrolijk to tackle the rigours and exhilaration of double-handed offshore racing, a stand-out trend in racing circles over the past few years.

This award-winning "skiff on steroids" has confirmed its performance potential in major offshore events in Europe and New Zealand. But the Dehler 30 one design is also capable of quickly switching modes: to either a fully crewed fast twilight competitor or even weekend cruiser thanks to comfortable quarter berths and settee berths as well as perfectly functional galley head compartment.

Those contemplating fully embracing the cruising lifestyle with the occasional regatta fling thrown in, are not doing their due diligence unless they have thoroughly checked-out a Hanse, and Windcraft will have one of the German manufacturer's most popular models, the Hanse 418, on display at SIBS.

The Hanse 418 offers a hugely enjoyable family sailing experience with luxury accents and real bluewater credentials. Hanses are recognised for their quality engineering and easy-sailing characteristics.

The Windcraft Team will also be on-hand to present more information and answer any queries on the all-new Hanse 460. The 460's exceptional design and sophisticated features have already been recognised by the yachting press with the Hanse 460 declared the winner of the coveted "European Yacht of the Year" award 2022 in the Cruiser Category. More than 200 hulls have been sold to date, an extraordinary number, with 13 on their way to Australia and New Zealand. Our first Hanse 460 is due to be launched in Queensland in October.

Keen observers of the latest boating trends familiar with the enormous interest in highly practical outboard-powered walk-around centre-console day-boats, should schedule a viewing of the RYCK 280.

The RYCK is a completely new boat from renowned designer Bill Dixon, built by Hanse and configured to a variety of uses; family entertainer, fast tender, adventure sports day boat or premium fishing platform, all capable of 40 knot performance. A generous cabin and fully enclosed head downstairs, a stand-out in this size category, means the RYCK 280 offers a true overnight or weekend getaway on the water.

Of course, the experienced Windcraft Sales Team led by Managing Director Anthony Bishop will also be only too happy to discuss any model from Windcraft's stable of premier sailing brands including Hanse, Dehler, Solaris, Moody and Privilège, and equally impressive power marques Fjord, RYCK and Sealine.
