Friedrichshafen – With a breath of fresh air in the sails on the course infinite horizon of the open ocean until at some point on the distant coast the anchor falls in a secluded bay – that is pure blue water sailing. The longing for sailing adventures far away from the coast awakens and satisfies the 61sts. Interboot in Friedrichshafen from 17th to 25th September alike. Seminars of the Interboot Academy and the stage program in the Sailing and Travel Competence Center offer a variety of area tips and profound know-how. The best sailing yachts for cruises on the high seas are in hall A3. If you are not traveling on your own keel, choose your travel destination on the charter market.
The Caribbean from the Windward Islands via Antigua and the British Virgin Islands to Cuba is the number one long-distance destination and is present in the foyer west of the Interboot. The most popular sailing areas of Europeans, who also want to dare more than just a day trip, are located in the Mediterranean. Mediterranean expert Michael Amme from blauwasser.de will give an overview and guide to the choice of the district on the first Sunday of the fair, 18. September, in an Academy seminar. Exemplary short performances also show Croatia, Greece and Elba with Sardinia on stage in the sailing and travel competence center.
The next step is to buy your own boat. Interested parties are also taken by the hand on the Interboot along the way. Boat broker and sailing coach Marie Schneider helps on the second Sunday, 25. September, in the seminar “Finding the perfect blue water yacht”. The demands on comfort, especially under deck, safety day and night as well as performance under sail depend on the crew strength and are different on a holiday trip than during a circumnavigation of the world. According to the French shipyard, Jeanneau’s Sun Odyssey 410 represents a vision for life on board. Gründl Bootsimport brings the 12.35 meter long and almost four meter wide model to Lake Constance together with the smallest sister Sun Odyssey 349. Both yachts must optionally be equipped with two or three cabins for four or six people.
The sailing experience and speed potential is at the top of the Hanse 348, whose mast protrudes at 10.40 meters of boat length a proud 16.25 meters above the water surface. In addition, there is a modern sailing plan with around 60 square meters of large sailing and rollergenoa area by the wind and an almost 90 square meter gennaker. Below deck, the model scores with bright cabin layouts and a daylight bathroom with extra shower. The compact, 9.62 meter long Hanse 315 stands by him as an entry-level model of the Greifswalder Großwerft.
Enjoy Yachting brings the ten-meter-long Oceanis 34.1 of the Beneteau Group as its German premiere. The successor to the repeatedly revised 35.1 comes from the pen of Marc Lombard, who gave the rear wide fuselage continuous kim edges (Chines), which stabilizes the balance even in strong swell on the high seas. Without a day of the eighth, a larger mainsail on display in the top is possible. Touring sailors can choose between a fixed L-Kiel (1.50 or 2 meters draft) or swivel keel also for dry traps, self-turning jib or Genoa as well as the comfort owner version with separate toilet and shower afts instead of two double cabins.
In the round dance of the blue water yachts, the Bavarian blue from Bavaria from Giebelstadt should not be missing. Ultramarin Meichle+Mohr, has announced a Bavaria C42 and a Cruiser 34. The former is shown with a length of 12.40 meters next to the Sun Odyssey 410, one of the largest boats on display. Europe’s Yacht of the Year 2021 is easily accommodated by eight guests in the salon. When the table is lowered, the area becomes a chill-out area. The lounge sofa with navigation area and home office in one is blue water-friendly; the king-size bed of the owners (1.80 x 2.10 meters) does justice to a luxury hotel. The all-purpose yacht Bente 24, which has already mastered some long blows brilliantly, will also be admired again with Ultramarin.
The Swiss Fallenbach shipyard presents a world premiere with the Pointer 30 of the Dutch yacht shipyard Heeg. An eight-person cockpit at a length of 30 feet (9.20 meters) initially indicates a Daysailor rather than a long-distance yacht. However, with CE category B, the versatile cabin sailing yacht is approved outside coastal waters and convinces with a closed toilet area and a separate double cabin. After the world premiere at Interboot last year, the Austrian Sunbeam 32.1 from Schöchl is once again in focus. The ten-meter yacht convinces stylishly and functionally with wave piercing bug, so-called flight deck with a lot of stepless surface and electrically extendable bathing platform.
