Premiering boats at the 2022 United States Sailboat Show.
The 442 is not a charter catamaran nor a racing catamaran. She was designed to sustain nice daily speeds on all points of sail (including upwind with her tall foiled dual daggerboards) and to carry customary cruising equipment with abundant personal storage and comfortable living spaces. A key part of her design was to make her as easy to sail and maintain as possible for a short-handed sailing couple and to offer enough volume and headroom for taller people to remain comfortable. She sports 1,205 square feet of sail area to sustain better light air performance. The self-tending jib is designed to make day sailing easier and the large Code zero and spinnaker options flown off the bowsprit allow her to be powered up significantly to improve performance when reaching or running. As a result, she is a fast passage-maker.
The Dufour 37 benefits from a modern and stable hull as you’d see on offshore racing boats, but with a slightly rounded lower hull that favours her passage through the water, while reducing the sound inside the yacht. This new hull form allows for a greater power/weight ratio for this boat that measures 10.8 metres overall: the feel at the helm is improved and offers more pleasure to the helmsman whatever point of sail you are on. On this new model, and particularly in comparison with other models in her size category, the mast has been lengthened to give increased sail area and make this yacht even more powerful.
The new Hallberg-Rassy 400 is an aft cockpit boat with twin helms, a modern and efficient hull shape with twin rudders and an easy to handle rig. The interior offers the option of one or two aft cabins, one or two heads, classic mahogany or bright European oak interior. After the center cockpit 40C, the aft cockpit 400 is the second new 40 footer from Hallberg-Rassy in a short time.

Hanse Yachts – Dehler 38SQ
Dehler is pleased to present its new 38SQ model, dynamically developed out of the successful Dehler 38. At Dehler, SQ traditionally stands for Speed & Quality and thus for perfect sailing characteristics and modern design. The new Dehler 38SQ has been given a new color and light concept, a more varied interior layout, as well as powerful improvements to the rig and cockpit – all while keeping the boat as simple to use and fun as ever.
The Hanse 460 marks the launch of a new model range that combines radically innovative design with traditional Hanse values such as fast cruising and easy sailing. In an exciting pitch, the yacht designers from Berret-Racoupeau in La Rochelle stood out with a vision that offers a new hull design, as well as a highly versatile cockpit and interior design. Together with the development team from Hanse, a family cruiser was developed with the aim of setting new standards in terms of easy handling, individualization and sailing performance. And all this in a sporty, modern exterior design as well as an outstanding interior design, equipped with exclusive details.
