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!

Walstrom "Roe" Building Groundbreaking by Trevor

Now that the downtown Walstrom building is transitioning into The Boathouse of Harbor Springs, there needs to be a new place to sell boats! Not to mention the promise of a larger indoor showroom! The Roe building has previously been used for light storage, boats under 60ft. Construction has started immediately. Be sure to check back for more pictures and updates, in the meantime take a look at the video rendering of the new building.
