Boot Düsseldorf 2024: The most impressive new yachts to track down

Boot Düsseldorf 2024: The most impressive new yachts to track down

The biggest international indoor boat show is coming up next week and we've highlighted some new models that will impress visitors.


The Targa 40 revitalizes the successful Fairline range. This new model puts more emphasis on social spaces. With the "Beach Club" balcony and tender garage, it makes the most of the useful space. Thanks to the open cockpit design, the Targa 40 lets plenty of light into the interior. The canvas roof can be fully electrically retracted for alfresco seating in the U-shaped dining area.. The Targa 40 is equipped with the latest Garmin touch display and reaches a top speed of 36 knots with a 760hp engine.


The quiet lifestyle of sailing, the convenience of powerboating: the OT 60 built by Greek shipyard Omikron combines the best of both worlds. Her exclusively developed Eco-Cruise hull with carbon reinforcement makes for such low-noise and economical cruising that you almost feel like being on board a sailing yacht. But the OT 60 is not dependent on wind – she covers 1,000 nautical miles at 12 knots with her twin 300 hp diesel engine consuming 1.25l per hour. The space above deck is comparable to that on a deckhouse yacht. The saloon is connected to the cockpit via glass doors. Three or four cabins are offered – each with their own bathroom.


The Predator 75 is a performance yacht and – without any false modesty – focused on power as much as on luxurious comfort. Outside, the colour mix of midnight grey and jet black impresses us on the arrow-like hull, while inside we are struck by the furnishings with refrigerator and cooler, dishwasher, wine cooler, electric barbecue and even a walk-in wardrobe. High-performance air conditioning, HiFi stereo and TV set form just as much part of the amenities as does a Simrad 19” display. With 3,800 hp the Predator 75 exceeds 40 knots top speed.


German manufacturer Mayla is using the Dusseldorf show to unveil the all-new 44ft Mayla GT. This glamorous debut marks a new chapter in luxury sports yachts. A modern tribute to the speedboats of the 70s and 80s, the elegant lines of the Mayla GT reflect its high performance. Powered by twin 650hp Corvette gas V8s supplied by Ilmor Marine, with optional V8s up to 1,500hp, and thanks to its aerodynamic, all-carbon shape, it is designed to reach a top speed of 110mph.


The Finnish Saxdor shipyard tops their sport boat line with the Saxdor 400 GTO. The flagship model features 12 m LOA and 3.55 m beam and a wheelhouse that extends to the full beam of the boat. The bow area is accessible via a door next to the helmstand. This layout not only provides maximum space in the saloon but also privacy for the bow sunbed. Twin 400 hp outboard rigs speed up the Saxdor 400 GTO to 48 knots. Privacy is also the name of the game for the cabin layout on the lower deck. Forward and aft cabins can be accessed by separate companionways. When the cockpit side walls are lowered the area behind the helmstand turns into an open space almost 5 metres wide – and all of a sudden, guests are just above the water line.
