Zeelander Yachts - From Holland to Holland Michigan by admin

As if launching new models under a few brand names was not enough for the Holland, Michigan S2 based company (makes of Tiara and Pursuit), they have taken on producing yet another brand, Zeelander Yachts.  The Zeelander certainly does not take any design elements from anything else S2 currently produces and definitely has a Euro feel to it.  Here is Trevor with a quick overview of the exterior of the 44' Zeelander at the Palm Beach Show.  

 

Haven't heard of Zeelander and still not convinced they have faith in their product?  Well, apparently there was this "small" little party in the BVIs at the Yacht Club Costsa Smeralda you might have heard about.  Guess what boats were on hand for the press and VIP guests?  That's right, there were a few Zeelanders zipping about during the Caribbean Superyacht Regatta & Rendezvous.

The Boat International Superyacht Regatta, organised by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in collaboration with Boat International Media, has brought together a roster of impressive entrants from around the world. This event could potentially be the most extensive selection of superyachts in one place this year - many leading the field in terms of cutting edge technology and design. Zeelander are therefore delighted to provide the boats for the regatta, seeing this event as an ideal opportunity to showcase this premium new brand to an exceptional gathering of racing elite who are able to identify with Zeelander’s unique design qualities and performance.

We look forward to finding out more about this partnership and seeing if current Tiara and Pursuit dealers will be marketing the Zeelander in Michigan!

Pursuit, a sister brand of Tiara, is having an event of their own this morning at the Miami Convention Center. We are on the ground and are pleased to let you know Pursuit has just introduced their new ST 310 Sport along with a new inshore series of boats ranging from 18'-23'. They are currently talking about the state of the business and we will have more details (and real pictures) for you soon!

Here is the official verbage:

The all new Pursuit ST Series was specifically designed to deliver more comfort and utility to Pursuit's legendary center console platform. Nothing can compare to the plush wrap-around lounge in the bow, luxurious helm/companion seats for three at the console and in the cockpit, forward and aft facing bench seating offering a comfortable location for all. Yacht caliber features throughout including new innovative head access, equipment storage and optional towing package let this series stand alone as a premium inshore/offshore vessel and tender.

The Miami Boat Show is in full swing with a whole slew of announcements going on today. The only thing better than warm weather and a boat show, is warm weather, a boat show, and an announcement of a new model from a fellow Michigan business!

Tiara just formally announced their new 31' Coronet Dayboat. Stay tuned for more updates while we listen to the rest of the announcement!

Just can not wait to get into the Miami Boat Show?! Well here is a sneak peek! Not quite as glamorous as you envisioned it?  Just wait a few days.  With some elbow grease and boat show magic it will become your boating mecca. My personal favorite photo is the wrap on the Contender. Leave your comments on your favorite pictures!

2010 Bay Harbor Boat Show Review by admin

What a great weekend! We had a great time on the docks at the boat show. Our only complaint was that it went by so quickly! Enjoy some of our photos and videos from the past weekend! One highlight was having a chance to sit down with Dirk Boehmer (PDF), recently appointed President of Vicem Yachts, for a few minutes and ask him a few questions ranging from his international background in yacht sales, to his impressions of Bay Harbor.

Total Powersports helped sponsor some skiers and snow boarders going off a ramp made up of M-Snow. If the first video looks like it is an easy task, be sure to watch the second video (ouch!).

Trevor and Lewis making sure everyone got an ice cold slush (with straw!).

Bay Harbor Boat Show!!! by admin

Despite some early morning clouds, the weather for the Bay Harbor In Water Boat Show today was great.

Our slush machine was in full swing (along with the popcorn machine) as the afternoon went on.  Combine cold drinks with a few ski stunts into the water, and it was a wonderful afternoon.

Be sure to check back for more pictures from the show, or better yet, stop by and say hi to us in our booth!
