Dutch magazine Motorboot named SLX54 'revolutionary'
Dutch marine journalist, Yvonne Zwaan, recently tested the SLX54. In her review for Motorboot magazine, she confirms our vision for the SLX54. "Revolutionary" and "successful" were just a few of the terms she used.
Motorboat of the Year Innovation Award 2023 for SLX54
The Super Lauwersmeer SLX54 was named "Motorboat of the Year 2023" with a unanimous vote by the jury. On the eve of the HISWA te Water, this "Innovation Award" was presented to boatyard owners Bastiaan, Louis Jousma, and yacht architect Arnold de Ruyter. The trio took to the stage in Lelystad to loud applause.
We will moor two of our yachts at the Bataviahaven in Lelystad from the 30th of August to the 3rd of September. At HISWA te Water 2023, we will showcase the award-winning SLX54 and the Discovery 46 OC Longroof. For the SLX54, the 2023 edition of the HISWA will be memorable in several ways.
After winning the European title, the SLX54 is now in the running to receive a prestigious award in the Netherlands. The jury, consisting of prominent figures from the water sports industry, has nominated the SLX54 for the title "Dutch Boat of the Year 2023".
Marc and Iny daydreamed for decades about their ultimate yacht. With ample experience on rental yachts, they thoroughly considered interior and exterior requirements. In Super Lauwersmeer's Discovery 46 OC, the Belgian couple found the model closest to their perfect picture. It was from this foundation that, with the help of Bastiaan and Louis, they realised all their specific ideas. Barely two years after the launch, another dream provides a different future perspective. One in which too little time remains for their dream yacht, "Good Times".
Rave reviews in the international water sports media and nominations in 2016 for Power Boat of the Year at Boot Düsseldorf and Motorboat of the Year at HISWA. Ever since its launch in 2015, the Evolve 46 OC has been a true eye-catcher on exhibition floors and in magazines. And so, Gerard Fortuyn and his wife were extremely grateful to be the proud owners of the first Evolve 46 OC built by Super Lauwersmeer. Eight years later, with pain in their hearts, they bid farewell to their beloved "one-off" Linquenda.
A 'Mega yacht, yet compact in size' and 'A truly, very special ship' is how two German water sports media describe the SLX54. Journalists Peter Marienfeld and Claus D. Breitenfeld stepped aboard with us and published a brilliant story in the magazines they write for.
According to one of Holland's tastiest coffee brands, the best ideas start with a cup of coffee. As far as the development of the SLX54 is concerned, this certainly holds! Bastiaan and Louis Jousma headed to Germany for a good cup of coffee with Mr and Mrs Willering in 2021. After the black gold was poured, they presented their plans for a revolutionary new Super Lauwersmeer model, the SLX54. 'I saw the potential and, as a pioneer at heart, I was keen to be the investor for this unique project.'
Following its world debut in Düsseldorf, the Powerboat of the Year 2023 will celebrate its in-water premiere at Motorboot Sneek. During the weekend of 14, 15 and 16 April, the innovative motor yacht will be on display in the water sports capital of the Netherlands.
