Performance Cruising Yachts is excited to announce the release of three brand-new models for 2023. The Cervetti 44 by Dufour Catamarans and ICE Yachts 62 Targa are both made by our Italian shipyards and Impression 43 by Elan Yachts of Slovenia. The standout characteristics amongst all these new models is the high-quality build, exceptional craftsmanship and luxurious fit and finish, making them leaders in their class.
The Cervetti 44 by Dufour Catamarans
Introducing the first of an exciting new range from the stable responsible for the magnificent Dufour 48 catamaran.
The first in the Cervetti Series, the 44 embodies the very latest in design and production techniques resulting in exceptional quality, style and unrivalled luxury. This catamaran shines with a bold, dynamic design of the hulls with fluid lines and inverted bows. The galley is opened up to the lower deck by the sliding windows and doors to create a full alfresco experience. The forward deck is also cleverly connected to the salon by simply lifting the front window.
The spacious flybridge provides an oversized sunbathing area that is easy to access via stairs from inside the lower cockpit area. The helm station is positioned more forward to increase the spacious lounge area and provide commanding views allowing for excellent visibility when manoeuvring.
The Cervetti 44 is available in 3 or 4 cabin versions choose between the light and bright oak wood or darker teak interior.
Performance Cruising Yachts has a stock model on order that is available for delivery in Australia next March/April.
The new ICE 62 TARGA made its debut at Cannes Yachting Festival and has already been nominated for the European Yacht of the Year Award for best Luxury Cruiser.
The ICE 62 TARGA is a fast luxury cruiser of exceptional quality with a distinctive flare of sophistication and elegance. Designed by revered Italian Naval Architect Umberto Felci, this new model oozes class and refinement and features a striking carbon roll bar with T-top bimini.
The modern design is marked by a reversal bow (scimitar shape), with a carbon bowsprit of 1.3 meters, twin rudders and a draft with variable depth from 2.85 to 3.80 meters made possible by a hydraulic lifting system allowing to easily switch from racing mode to cruising mode.
On deck, the helm positions are specifically set forward to provide excellent visibility and access to the mainsheet for control. The entire cockpit is clean and uncluttered and purposely oversized incorporating large bench seating with backrests and an optional dining table. The transom can be opened up to provide a lounge for sunbathing, clad in teak and also provides access to the spacious garage designed to hold a tender with the rigid keel of 3.1 meters without deflating it. In the garage, two electric winches/hooks are arranged for the opening of the hatch and the tender movement.
The mast and boom come standard in carbon and can also be equipped with a very efficient electric in-boom mainsail roller keeping effort to a minimum when hoisting the sail. For sheeting and halyards, the yacht comes standard with five electric winches, electric mainsail traveller, electric genoa furler, bow thruster, and dodger.
Below decks, the ICE 62 TARGA is everything you could dream a yacht could be. Exceptional craftsmanship delivers an interior that is superbly finished with the use of high-end fixtures and fittings, subtle lighting and luxury fabrics.
The long-awaited revamp of this timeless blue water classic has arrived with the launch of the all-new Impression 43.
Boasting a modern wide-beam hull, the new Impression 43 offers much more space than previous models with ample volume, light, ventilation and storage both above and below decks.
The hull and sail plan are optimized for easy short-handed sailing with the inclusion of a self-tacking jib. Both hull and deck are fully vacuum infused, enabling a light, stiff and incredibly safe construction. Stand-out features include the popular split cockpit table that converts to double sun beds, helm storage boxes that can house BBQ and fridge, a large swim platform, stylish instrument pods at each helm with safety hand hold and of course the iconic transom seats.
Layouts include either a three-cabin version with an island bed and en-suite with a separate shower or a four-cabin version which adds a cabin with bunk beds, perfect for families or groups of friends.
The interior is built with “rustic” oak veneer and marine-grade plywood, contrasted with modern grey-coloured storage cupboards. A solid oak wood finish is applied wherever the furniture is expected to go through most use, to increase its durability.
The long side galley features a three-burner stove with an oven and a front-opening refrigerator on the convenient L-shaped cabinet. The long layout offers plenty of surface space and cupboards for storage.
Performance Cruising Yachts has a production slot reserved for May 2023 with delivery to Australia in June.
