Jeanneau Velasco 37 Jeanneau Valasco 43
The Jeanneau Velasco Motor Yacht range marks the return of the Jeanneau Motor Boat division to the Flybridge market. Announced in July 2012, the Jeanneau Velasco range is a completely new designed from the keel up. Velasco has an exciting and brand new hull design that offers the most comfortable and efficient passage possible in a Motor Yacht of this size. The first Velasco model was shown at the 2012 Paris Boat show. The Velasco 43 is believed to be the first of many offerings in this range of Motor Yachts form Jeanneau.
The Velasco Motor Boat range all have a unique profile, sweeping hull lines and a forward sloping windscreen leading up to a substantial flybridge area. Jeanneau make no apology for the resemblance shown to the NC range of Motor Boats whose innovation and design have drawn admiration from all quarters. The modern style and practical touches give the boats a very “ship” like feel. Wide spray rails and ample stainless fittings ensure safe access to all areas of the Boat. From inside the saloon large glazed areas offer panoramic views, thanks to the fantastic vision the Velasco has a usable lower helm position, easy access to the side and aft decks by means of rear, port and starboard doors are a welcome design feature not forgotten by Jeanneau.
Performance has been considered carefully, with the hull being designed by Tony Castro and his team. Tests show the design to offer an outstanding sea-keeping ability at cruising speeds. Internally, the space and light is excellent giving the saloon a bright and airy ambience whilst the forward accommodation is sumptuous. Jeanneau Velasco is available in a range of cabin options to suit every need.
This is a bold step to take by Jeanneau and whilst other manufacturers shrink and reduce their offerings, Jeanneau again show their confidence in their product and their customers.
