New Model: Steeler NG43

Always in the lime light in the bigger super sizes, in recent times Dutch builders have also gathered attention in the smaller sub fifty feet sizes.  Steeler is one of the builders coming from Holland who makes part of the resurgence in the smaller cruiser sizes.  Steeler as the name of the Steenwijk located builder suggests builds of steel and the NG43 is its most recent model.  A hard top sport cruiser in looks, the NG 43 offers a semi displacement hull suitable for inland waterways and sea navigation.  The accommodation is a traditional four plus two layout. Two guest cabins below sleeping four and a convertible C-shaped settee in the saloon.  The Steeler SG43 is standard powered by a single Yanmar 110hp, but a twin Steyr 250hp diesel engine has been the choice of hull number two.
