New Model: Zeelander 5

Zeelander debuted its new 5 model duing the 2023 Palm Beach boat show held at the end of March at Palm Harbor Marina. The new Zeelander 5 is a natural evolution of the Z44, although this is not just redesign and hull extension as the 5 apart presenting a more contemporary look is also about a meter longer and thirty centimetres wider. The curvaceous Zeelander silhouette is still instantly recognisable, but compared to the Z44, the shearline is more voluptuous than ever, and now follows an elongated ‘S’ shape. The traditional yacht features bigger windows in the wheelhouse and in the hull. Zeelander has succeeded in eliminating mullions altogether around the helm, for true, unencumbered 360-degree vision. The beautifully sculpted wheelhouse can now be fully enclosed with a door and window, or opened up to a refreshing breeze, making her as suitable for cool climates as for warm. The Zeelander 5 offers effortless boarding through doors in the bulwarks, a new sun-pad on the foredeck, and a bathing platform that is almost twice as big compared to the Z44. The extra one meter of hull length has been put to striking effect in the generous master cabin, with its separate shower and head. Peerless interior styling of the yacht can be fully personalised or owners can choose from four carefully curated moodboards. The Zeelander 5 has a maximum speed of forty knots courtesy of three Volvo Penta 480hp with IPS drives propulsion and at the same time manages to be 2dBA quieter than its predecessor.
