New Bareboat Yachts 2022

New Sailing Yachts and Catamarans in the Mediterranean Yacht Charter Fleets in Summer 2022

A range of exciting new yachts will join the bareboat charter fleets in the Mediterranean in summer 2022. Some interesting sailing yachts show modernized lines and stylish new features. And the catamaran range has grown with a lot of updated models, new model lines and total newcomers.

Sailing yachts – more comfort & more performance

The Bavaria C line, which shows stylish lines designed by the Italian Cossutti Yacht Design, is now part of many more fleets. Cossutti is known not only as designer of interesting one offs but was responsible for the beautiful Italia Yachts as well. The update of the Bavaria fleet is now nearly complete as the C line is already available in 5 lengths, Bavaria C 42 has just been elected European Yacht of the year 2021 in the family cruiser category, Bavaria 38 C is nominated for the “Best Sailboats” award. As most sailing yachts, the C line is available in different versions, sometimes you find as well Bavaria C Style yachts for charter.

Beneteau’s Oceanis new line, designed by Marc Lombardi and Nauta, consists now of 6 sizes from 30 to 51 feet, which can all be chartered around the whole Mediterranean. The “7th generation” of Oceanis yachts , which offers even higher volume inside and keeping good sailing performance due to modernized hulls, can be recognized as they are marked by “.1”,

New interesting Dufour yachts for charter are Dufour 470 and Dufour 530, designed by Felci – probably in the fleets, they will appear mostly in the Easy or Ocean version – for race sailors, there is as well a Performance version being built.

The Dufour 530 has already won the Sail Magazines “Best Boats” contest – “Best Boat Winners 2021“ in the class „Best Large Monohull 50 ft. and above“. The magazine stated that with the new line, Dufour combined former performance and Grand Large lines have been combined in sailing yachts with new hulls that satisfy both target groups – ambitious sailors and cruising and charter crews.

A brandnew Hanse 460 yacht now joins the charter fleet – hull completely new designed by Berret-Racoupeau , modern and sportive, for great performance. And after establishing the most recent Sun Odyssey models 410, 440 and 490, Jeanneau now is about to launch a new Sun Odyssey 380 which probably will hit the charter market rather fast.

Catamarans

As the smallest sailing catamaran built by the big manufacturers, the Excess 11 is an interesting newcomer in the charter fleets. It is the newest addition to the Excess line of the Lagoon shipyard which stands for modern and sportive yachts which combine comfort and better sailing performance. After successfully introducing Excess 12 and 15, Excess 11 is the first brandnew design of the Excess fleet. This cruising catamaran is equipped with twin helm stations aft and has no flybridge. Through the salon windows, the skipper can even see the opposite bow from the helm. The Excess 11 is available with three or four cabins, and both versions come with two heads.

As well the new Lagoon 55 will be for charter in 2022 – but probably mostly with skipper or fully crewed.

New hull design with eleganter bows and new lines – the new Bali 4.4, which is the successor of both Bali 4.3 and 4.5, will for sure very popular in the charter market. Like all newer Bali models it features a forward door to the to the lounge and sunbathing area in front. The central helm station on the coachroof that can be accessed from both sides offers a nice panoramic view.

With Fountaine Pajot, yacht charterers have to learn some model names – after introducing Elba 45 in the charter fleets not too long ago, now Isla 40 as successor of the Lucia 40 catamaran and Tanna 47 following after Saona 46 are added to the modernized line. Isla shows similar lines and hulls as the longer new sister ships and offers as well a new forward lounge area. Tanna 47 offers a lot of space and a strong feeling of light and elegance. Both flybridge and front area feature large sunbathing areas. The name has not yet been published but the New 51 Fountaine Pajot catamaran – replacement for Saba 50 – will be on the market very soon: with 3 gorgeous lounge areas in front, in the aft and on the fly and smooth transition between cockpit and salon and up to 6 cabins.

A total newcomer in the market is the Croatian shipyard Luna catamaran. They try to provide “a new level of comfort, luxury and performance”, building “a modern unique line” not only with the latest technology but even eco-friendly. Luna catamarans are designed by French designers Francois Perus & Romain Scolari – Yacht Design Collective. Charter crews can test the new Luna catamarans Luna 47 and Luna 49 in summer 2022 in the Mediterranean.
