Seen at Düsseldorf: sailing can be so tiring, which is why the sunbeds on the Hanse 575 are so tempting
The GC32 one-design catamaran is all set to take advantage of America's Cup-inspired multi mania. Expect to see these in the US before long.
The Amel 55 is an excellently conceived live aboard cruiser for a couple. Who says the ketch is dead?
The new Dufour 410 is a wedge-shaped flyer. Look forward to sailing it.
The Premier 45, designed by Botin & Carkeek and built of carbon and composites in Dubai, displaces just 8 tons and will happily cruise at double-digit speeds. Sign me up...
The new Lagoon 39 was quite a sight with its cheerful bubbly hull graphics.
Not a new boat, but one of the first from the new owners of renowned Swedish brand Najad. Good to see these lovely boats back in production.
Powerful and pretty, the new Wauquiez 57 made quite an impression.
The new Oceanis 55 sported an unusual matte gray paint job. No worries about waxing these topsides; just hose them down!
Bavaria's new 56 can swallow a dinghy whole. Just deflate the front tube and slide it into its garage under the cockpit.
Shoal draft is back with a vengeance. The Delphia 31 is one of several new boats with swing keels and twin rudders.
The world's biggest boating and water sports show, Boot, is under way in Düsseldorf, Germany. Everything from 100-plus foot super yachts to pool toys can be found here.
