Nominees’ Showcase at Southampton

Nominees’ Showcase at Southampton

This year’s Southampton Boat Show saw Key Yachting showcase two new models to the market, the Grand Soleil LC46 (Long Cruise) and the J/Boats J/112E, both nominated for the European yacht of the year award.

The Long cruise range is a new development from Grand Soleil and has been designed for those wishing to discover beautiful areas of sailing whilst in comfort, with systems optimised for ease of use by a single or double handed crew.

The J/112E is the latest addition to the J/112 boat series, with the ‘E’ range catering for a more versatile performance yacht and an exceptional upwind performer. The V-shaped bow sections provide superior directional stability and reduced slamming in waves. In addition, a long waterline combined with a low vertical center of gravity results in a smooth, sea-kindly motion.
