In June 2012, Linssen Yachts reported that “After a cautious start to the year, Linssen Yachts sold no less than twenty yachts to boating enthusiasts in May”. Twelve months later, the Maasbracht-based boatyard has come close to matching this unparalleled success once again: in May 2013 it had received no less than nineteen orders for new yachts. A fine achievement in the yacht-building sector!
“What we’re seeing are customers who increasingly demand value for money, good sailing characteristics, and lasting value.With the stock market continuing to disappoint and interest rates dipping to below the rate of inflation, they are looking to invest in things that retain their value,” says Yvonne Linssen. “By organising our own events, such as the Linssen In Water Boat Show in May and our customer sea trials in Blankenberge in July, we can show our customers that we have precisely what they are looking for.”
The Linssen ‘9’ series is also nine years old this year. Its introduction in 2004, along with Logicamtm smart serial construction and all its many advantages, shook up the market for steel yachts. The boatyard is marking this anniversary by releasing two limited editions of the Grand Sturdy 34.9 and 40.9 AC. These are valuable and value-retaining yachts with complete specifications for a very attractive price.
“This excellent result and our success in the first six months will allow us to continue innovating and working on new products in the future too,” concludes Yvonne Linssen.
