Best motor boat brands for 2022
HanseYachts AG offers a wide range of motorboats and luxury yachts
The development, manufacture, and sale of motor yachts is HanseYachts AG’s second business segment. Since the acquisition of FJORD in 2007, the yachts under this brand are now manufactured by HanseYachts AG at its Baltic coast shipyard.
FJORD motorboats are characterized by their spectacular design — clear, angular, no frills and with the potential for real speed. The product portfolio includes yachts from 36 to 52 feet. All models are designed as open motorboats with a small cabin. FJORD yachts are designed by Patrick Banfield, who is renowned worldwide for the spectacular mega yachts he designs for celebrity owners.
Their appearance ensures that they really stand out from the competition. For FJORD, design is a key feature. But this unwavering focus on design is never at the expense of cruising performance or the host of highly practical details. The high, straight panels ensure safety in the cockpit and mean that the space for reclining areas and the helm can be optimized.
In autumn 2013, HanseYachts AG also acquired the long-standing British yacht brand SEALINE. Offering a model range from 38 to 53 feet (ca. 16 m), as Sport Coupé or classic Flybridge, the SEALINE brand occupies the mid-size range. Typical of this long-standing English yacht brand is a design that provides just the right combination of light, space, and functionality. The motor yachts from SEALINE are real ‘boater boats’, designed to give their owners — who use them not just for sailing but also as living space — the perfect level of comfort. They are sporty, but still offer ample space below deck.
SEALINE yachts are designed with practicality at the forefront. The yachts have an original and elegant exterior that appeals to a large customer base and, below deck, offer all the comfort and technical conveniences you could possibly need.
RYCK is the third motorboat brand of HanseYachts AG, the company has started establishing itself in the market during the summer of 2021. This new brand offers innovative motor yachts with outboard engines in the 24 to 39 foot segment and thus sets new standards on the market in terms of customization options to meet customers’ needs. Similarly, versatile are the fields of use for the brand’s first model: The RYCK 280 is a small motor yacht with a powerful outboard engine. She perfectly suited both for a swimming or diving trip and for a city or Norway voyage.
FJORD — Performance motor yacht brand
FJORD offers a new range of open and powerful motor yachts that are in a class of their own. Not only does their open layout give them as much deck area as a super yacht, but they are also easy to handle. The intelligent IPS technology from Volvo Penta ensures that the FJORD motor yachts, which can measure up to 52 feet in length, are extremely easy to maneuver. Out on the water, almost all models can reach speeds of 40 knots or more. Another feature is the innovative all-round deck, which ensures easy and safe access to the bow. The generous sun decks, adjustable bathing platforms and spacious outdoor kitchens make this brand perfect for warmer climes.
SEALINE — Cruising motor yacht brand
Under the SEALINE brand, HanseYachts AG constructs innovative motor yachts for the cruiser segment. SEALINE offers a diverse range of motorboats from 33 to 53 feet and with two to four cabins. Another special feature of these yachts in addition to the innovative IPS engines from Volvo Penta is the exceptional lighting architecture. Motorboats measuring 43 feet (ca. 13 meters) or more are fitted with floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows, offering a 360-degree view. The Flybridge versions additionally feature a third level, a second helm and vast amounts of living space.
RYCK — innovative motor yacht brand with outboard engines
RYCK yachts are true all-rounders with a high degree of individualization. They cater to water sports enthusiasts with high demands on design and equipment.
