Test-drive on the Mosel river and upcoming test-drive in Frankfurt this fall

Our team organized a test-drive on the German-Luxembourg-France river named Mosel last week. The test went well and the boat full filled all the expectations. As our LR9 model is specially designed for rivers and lakes, it makes it a perfect boat for river tourism.

We will be organizing a test-drive in Frankfurt this fall for everyone who is interested. For everyone who is interested, let us know by sending the email. On our way back to Estonia, we did some preparations for fall demo drive, which ended up both of our boats operating on the same river in Frankfurt back last Sunday. 

Further information about test-drive days coming up soon!

The road to Düsseldorf

The 14th January 2020 our team started the journey to Germany for Boot Düsseldorf. The trip from Tallinn to Düsseldorf begun in the early morning. Plan was to drive to Liepaja (Latvia) for a ferry which would take us to Travemünde, Germany. From there it was almost 500 kilometers to the Messe Düsseldorf exhibition center. The trip to Düsseldorf is something we really enjoy every year. The feeling of being on the road again to show our boats at the greatest boat exhibition in Europe is an exciting one.

Then we finally arrived and stand construction started. This year in a different hall, hall 9. Now a hall closer and in the boats hall.

After preparation we now are ready! The first day of the exhibition begun with a new tradition by Boot Düsseldorf. All ships sounded their horns to welcome guests of the fair. A nice tradition aswell.

This year we bring to the fair our LR9 version with some upgrades. Also come by and see our new model designs. The new model is called AO12 which you can learn more about at the fiar or read under the boats section.

Don’t miss us at the fair! Remember hall 9, stand E59.

We hope to see you!

 

We are back in Düsseldorf 2020!

In 2020 we are back in Düsseldorf for Europe’s biggest boat fair. This will now be our third year joining Enterprise Estonia to this exhibition. This year we are happy to announce that we have worked the whole year to bring a new model into production. This has taken a lot of effort and we now have the design for all of our sea-side operating clients. The model is called AO12.

Come by our stand to learn more about AO12!

This year we are bringing the LR9 model with some refreshing touches done to the model.

In addition we are showing the design of the AO12.

 

We have a new location on the fair.

Find us at Hall 9 Stand E59. See location on the map below.

We invite you to join us at this year’s boot Düsseldorf.

 

Boot Düsseldorf is Europe’s largest boat show. We are part of team Estonia and you can find us at Hall 10 booth E73.

This year we will be presenting the LR9 platform and specifically LR9 Safari.

The Safari model is the main layout that the LR9 platform is designed on. LR9 Safari is a work tool for river and lake tours organizer. This boat is built for river and lakes but can do its job at sea. It has a flat bottom which makes it super stable and perfect for these river and lake conditions. Flat bottom also makes the boat come above water more easily which transfers directly into performance figures and fuel saving. The maximum speed when loaded is 35 knots and without load 40 knots (achieved with a 300hp single engine).

The LR9 Safari can take on board 20 passengers and also has seating for 2 crew members. The boat is CE certified and it is a C category boat.

Another great thing about the platform is that seats are mounted with 4 bolts, making it easy to turn Safari boat into Cargo boat.

Our first model was the LR9 SAFARI model which could take on board up to 20 passengers with 2 crew. It is a great work tool for a business of river or lake tours. Every aspect of the boat is built to suit well the needs of a tour organizer. It was also designed to be a quite flat-bottomed boat to achive greater speeds with less engine power on rivers. Also it’s flat bottom gives it very good boat to access hard to reach places with… Read more about the boat here.
