Recap BOOT Düsseldorf / Inspiring Walkaround

3 days are much to less for a visit a the boat show in Düsseldorf. It´s OK when you don´t have appointments, than you run across the halls and get a catch everywhere. That was my experience years ago. Nowadays it´s quite difficult to look every booth of your choice in detail.

Nevertheless I will show you today my drive-by perspectives of the fair. At the end there is so much more to see. That year for example I haven´t been on any speech in one of the panels in the specific halls. That´s a must for next year.

The SARCH S6 is a one-of Daysailer which is eye catching. It has all the elements you are searching for. The Fat-Head, wavepiercer bow, modern cockpit and gennaker. All in all it looks quite economical and rought. At the end, maybe the boat the mass will have for the weekend. Whereas Sunseeker is not something for the mass but at least fascinating.

DSV new Logo Boot Düsseldorf DSV new Logo Boot Düsseldorf

On Saturday we had the logo launch of the Deutscher Segel Verband (DSV). That was quite free of emotions but there was at least a yummy cake. Do you see the difference to the previous logo?

Teakdeck Boot Düsseldorf Dehler Yachts Design Boot Düsseldorf

Wood is always a topic in boat design. There are so many kinds of wooden deck possibilities. That´s really amazing. What do you think about the round design of the new Dehler interior design? I like the outside of the yachts very much, but the inside is not so mine.

Yeah, that´s a plastic foiler for sailing schools, which is easy to foil and everything of the boat is very solid. Good idea. I like it. It´s also interesting for family-foiling at the weekend with kids. That´s the idea. The concrete opposite of foiling is the Dehler 25. The construction is around 30 years old and it was my dream when I was a child. In the 80ies it was also promoted as a family boat. Now the YACHT Magazine made a refit with high-tec materials and put it into the now. The result is amazing and the idea was outstanding for a conservatice print magazine.

BOOT Düsseldorf / Classic Forum

Neben all den Foilern und Code Zero Geschichten gibt es auch einen Bereich der Messe (Halle 14 / Stand E38, H21 und H22), der mit dem Begriff Entschleunigung ganz gut beschrieben werden kann. Im Messeführer findest Du diesen Teil unter CLASSIC FORUM.

Hier ist alles von der klassischen Bootsbaukunst bis hin zu phantastischen Segelschiffen, die schon einige Jahrzehnte auf dem Bucke haben. Den Beruf des Bootsbauers finde ich ja ohnehin beeindruckend. Der Umgang mit den Materialien, die Liebe zu den Schiffen. Diese Boote haben schon eine starke Seele.

Dieses Eck der Messe ist auf jeden Fall Empfehlenswert. Am Besten zuvor noch das Bühnenprogramm checken und sich einen der Vorträge ansehen.
