New Model: Steeler Bronson 50

Steeler launched the first Bronson 50 on the famous Cote D'Azur, sea trialled in St. Tropez with weather conditions wind force five to six and choppy seas. Steeler reports remarkable sea keeping with complete absence of spray water, low noise level enabling conversations at full speed, smooth wave handling and excellent view from the helm station at all speeds. The Steeler Bronson 50 is the first powerboat on the market to offer an open connection between the suave cruiser-style interior areas and luxurious outdoor spaces on the main deck. Blending the sleek lines of a powerboat with the luxuries of a yacht. Currently three Bronson 50’s have been sold with hull numbers four and five being under construction as well.  Optimal enjoyment of every different space from bow to stern is assured thanks to the integrated cockpit and cabin area, which is in effect designed as one open space where all the people onboard can easily stay in touch with each other. The kings of the cockpit can sit on the four professional helm seats looking forward as one or more operates the three widescreen displays, on the helm and co-driver console.  If watching the world go by makes you peckish, you can step down into the kitchenette to rustle up drinks and food while still maintaining direct contact with the people who are at the helm or chilling on the sunbed. This split-level area is another nice place to relax on the sofa away from sun and wind while still feeling very much in the thick of the action. This whole area can be closed off at the push of a button with a glass ceiling roof.  The interior further features two double bedrooms, two toilets and a shower cabin.  The Bronson 50 that will be on display at the Cannes Yachting Festival will feature a combination of a T-Top and a Hardtop. This innovative Vario Roof can be used in two positions: Open is bimini position protecting against the sun; Closed is Hardtop position whereby the entire cockpit is closed.  The Bronson 50 is custom built in aluminium and standard equipped with twin Volvo 600hp or optional 725hp engines with IPS pod propulsion reaching speeds up to 36 knots. At 32 knots the diesel consumption is about five litres per nautical mile, which in combination with 2200 litre diesel tank results in a generous range of 440 nautical miles.
