Motorboot Sneek autumn 2019: once again extraordinary and grandiose

Motorboot Sneek autumn 2019: once again extraordinary and grandiose
A unique event for discovering your dream boat

Sneek, Netherlands - During the autumn edition of Motorboot Sneek on November 1, 2, and 3, 2019, seventeen shipyards will be presenting over 400 new and gently used yachts. Just as in previous editions, visitors will be able to tour a personally compiled route along the six organising shipyards in Sneek during the largest boat show of the North. For three days, from 10.00 a.m. until 5.00 p.m., attendees will encounter a range of yacht models in various price categories. They will discover everything to do with the latest trends and novelties as well as a look behind the scenes.

Unique collaboration
Motorboot Sneek is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between six organising companies and eleven visiting shipyards. The first edition of the boat show in 2009 was significantly more modest in scale, including eight motorboat yards and one yacht broker at the time. In 2019, the organizing companies are Aquanaut Dutch Craftsmanship, Brandsma Jachten, De Valk Yachtbrokers, Jansma Jacht, SK Jachtbouw and Vivante Yachts. They are all located in the beautiful Sneek area and each of the visiting shipyards hosts an exhibition stand at one of the locations. This allows visitors to take a route that stops by each participant all in one day. While they enjoy a bite to eat and a drink or two, they can spend a delightful day admiring stunning new and pre-owned yachts in a lovely setting.

Discovering the newest models
During the autumn edition of Motorboot Sneek, multiple participants will introduce attendees to their newest models. De Vaart Yachting, for example, will present the new Nimbus T9 and the Nimbus C9. The former is a day cruiser that is easily customised to suit personal preferences. The ideal yacht for daily activities, like transportation, watersports, and recreation. The Nimbus C9 is a fast yacht, designed with active day trippers in mind or for travellers who enjoy spending comfortable nights aboard during longer trips.

At De Boarnstream, visitors will experience a true worldwide première. The new Elegance 1440 is the largest Center Sleeper in the world under 15 meters. The greatest advantage of a Center Sleeper? The main cabin is located at the yacht’s widest point, offering you an ocean of space. That entails a spacious freestanding bed, plenty of wardrobe storage, and a large bathroom with a separate powder room. The Elegance 1140 is a very comfortable yacht with the ideal hull shape for exceptional vessel behaviour. 

50th anniversary
For Super Lauwersmeer, the autumn edition of Motorboot Sneek is particularly noteworthy: the event will take place one month after their 50th-anniversary celebration. Two outstanding models that the shipyard will showcase are the Discovery 47 OC and Discovery 47 AC, also known as the open cockpit and the aft cabin version. Super Lauwersmeer summoned their full knowledge and expertise over the past 50 years to build the pair of yachts. The shipyard’s well-known passion for perfection is clearly demonstrated in their vessels. Thoughtfully designed yachts with the comfort of home: that is the Super Lauwersmeer guarantee.

More than just new models and firsts
Aside from new models, visitors can also explore gently used yachts during the autumn edition of Motorboot Sneek. At De Valk Yachtbrokers Sneek, attendees will find a large covered sales marina with an extensive selection of pre-owned motor yachts. Even in the case of less-than-ideal weather, this still allows visitors to take their time to view, compare, and experience. The brokers will be ready to enlighten visitors on the benefits of steel, polyester, or the various types of motors, and they will gladly offer advice on which motor yacht best suits a visitor’s wishes.

If any attendees are on the fence about making the leap to a different motor yacht due to worries about selling their current yacht, De Valk Sneek will happily assist. Thanks to De Valk’s impressive network, there will be a trade-in option available in many cases. That makes the transition to another yacht seamless and worry-free.

Show sponsors like Raymarine, Kuiper Yacht Insurances, and Vetus will also have exhibition stands during the event where they can answer visitor questions.

Largest boat show in the North
Motorboot Sneek draws attendees from within the country and abroad. The autumn edition will be open to visitors free of charge on November 1, 2, and 3 from 10.00 a.m. until 5.00 p.m. Motorboot Sneek is also the perfect opportunity to become acquainted with the atmospheric downtown centre of Sneek. Visit the Frisian Maritime Museum (or Fries Scheepvaartmuseum), the Lac de Sneek (or Sneekermeer), or the Waterpoort gate. At the end of the day, it’s wonderful to warm up with with a glass of Weduwe Joustra Beerenburg liqueur at the distillery in one of the oldest buildings in the city. Cap off the day with a delicious dinner in one of the city’s many restaurants. Don’t forget to make a reservation since most restaurants will expect to be busy.
