Lifestyle : 2010 Sydney International Boatshow
1HERSA1 S009 1999 RIVIERA SYNDICATION Email firstname.lastname@example.org www.rivierasyndication.com.au Call Andy Young 0408 722 132 Cruise your Riviera 5800 Sport Yacht... on Sydney Harbour in Spring, Summer and Autumn... and in Winter in the warm Whitsundays. All for just $239,000 per share Relax... with the latest marine technology. When choosing a desalinator, look for the one with the biggest volume. HRO is by far the market leader. Over the past five years, HRO systems have consistently outsold the competition in Australia for boat water makers 3-to-1. The reasons for this success lay in HRO's long term experience in desalination. They offer units that can produce from 648 to 6,816 litres of pure water a day. A spectacular new range of LED lighting for every possible onboard application: Lumitec's designs are extremely energy efficient, indeed their power consumption is less than a tenth of halogen lights. With Lumitec you can choose from an overwhelming 500 lighting configurations including seven colour options, four different light output choices (with just the push of a button) and 22 models. 50 Waterway Drive, Coomera QLD 4209 Phone: +61 7 5561 7900 Email: email@example.com www.relectronics.com.au REL0300_SMH_SIBS DESALINATION LED LIGHTING Now being underway on a boat at night can be as clear (and safe) as boating in daylight with the OceanView range of thermal and ultra low-light dual imaging cameras and screen displays.

The Sydney Morning Herald July 24-25, 2010 9 SPECIAL REPORT IT'S BOOM AND BEST SAILING DAVID LOCKWOOD The cream of the crop will be on display --- including six must-see new vessels. Blown away . . . (from left) the Seawind 1250 recently completed a 6000-nautical mile blue-water sea trial; the impressive Jeanneau 57 yacht. Main photo: Craig Greenhill S ydney traditionally stands mast and boom above other national boat shows when it comes to the range of new-season launches on display. And this year is no exception. Investment in research and development has spawned a range of dashing new designs, with the trend in 2010 towards bigger, more luxurious cruising yachts that are easier to sail. Here are six must-see new vessels from foreign and local yards. BAVARIA 55 This is a collaboration between German yacht builder Bavaria, well-respected performance-yacht artisans Farr Yacht Design and design consultants BMW Group DesignworksUSA. The result is a fast cruising yacht that's also said to be balanced and assured. While the exterior nods to modern aesthetics, functionality isn't sacrificed. Think easy- breezy cruising, with the choice of three, four or five cabins. Key features include a dinghy garage, convertible cabin design, five-metre unobstructed foredeck with flush deck hatches for sunbathing and relaxation. There are also sport and comfort rig options. If you can't afford the near-$600,000 price tag, the Bavaria 32 is a keenly priced two-cabin cruising yacht from $169,600 sail-away. BENETEAU OCEANIS 58 This French brand has taken the battle to the German marques with its stunning ocean-going 58-foot flagship. Designed by Berret Racoupeau, with an interior layout by Nauta Design, the big cruising yacht teams ease of sailing with a chic three- or four-cabin layout, including forward owners' stateroom with en suite. There are abundant cabin skylights and light-oak joinery. Back up top, you get steering-station lounges and an aft cockpit deck, perfect for water sports. Dinghy garage included in the base price of about $825,000. HANSE 545 Displayed for the first time in Australia, Hanse's new 54-footer fancies itself as something of a trendsetter among yachting marques. With apartment-like interior and edgy design lines, the yacht is as visually exciting as it is accommodating. The clever cockpit boasts two distinct areas: one for sailing with the crew and another, forward, for family and friends to watch the action. Other key features of the showboat include in-mast furling , dinghy garage, twin carbon wheels, 6Kva generator and ducting for reverse- cycle airconditioning, twin fridge/freezers and a plush aft owners' stateroom. Base price $659,000. JEANNEAU 57 YACHT Forget all hands on deck, struggling to hoist or furl sail, fighting with the helm or your crew. The Philippe Briand-designed Jeanneau 57 flagship is a fast and efficient ocean cruiser but, above all, a well- behaved one. With a long waterline and high-aspect triple-spreader rig, the yacht is keen to cruise. Powered Harken winches, in-mast furling and a four-part cockpit with dedicated sail-handling area assist your travels. The multipurpose transom includes dinghy storage and electric opener for watersports on a whim. From about $800,000. MOODY CLASSIC 41 Designed for yachting traditionalists, the Moody Classic 41 is a standout in terms of style. It rivals many more expensive Scandinavian brands on most fronts. Gear includes stainless-steel Danish reading lamps and dorade vents, opening Swedish side- cabin portholes, Danish handmade three-blade folding prop, lead composite keel, solid teak coamings and North Sails tri-radial cruise-laminate sails, for extra performance. Base price is $399,000. SEAWIND 1250 This is arguably the best Australian-built bluewater catamaran, ready to reel in the sea miles with level- deck sailing all the way to Lizard Island and back. The Seawind 1250, from the eponymous Wollongong factory, is on show after successfully completing a 6000-nautical mile bluewater sea trial along the east coast of Australia, across Bass Strait and the Tasman to New Zealand and back. Priced at about $750,000.
