---Original Text / Press Release----
hanseboot 2009 – In-Water hanseboot in 2 harbours now
With the biggest yachts at the Hamburg Boat Show
50th International Boat Show Hamburg
at the Hamburg Fair site and In-Water hanseboot by the Elbe
from 24 October to 1 November 2009
(Hamburg, 23 October 2009)
This year’s In-Water hanseboot has a premiere of its own – for the very
first time, it will be held in two harbours, showing off the largest motor
boats and sailing yachts. As usual at the City Sporthafen at Baumwall, close
to the Landing Stages (Landungs­brücken), and for the first time at the new
heritage harbour in HafenCity. There you will find one of the longest
yachts, and at the same time the oldest at the 50th International Boat Show
Hamburg. The Mistral is an elegant schooner with a length overall (including
bowsprit) of more than 23 metres, and very impressive in its timeless,
classic lines. This distinguished design was created by legendary designer
Francis Herreshoff and built in 1938 at the Britt Brothers’ yard in
Massachusetts. It was relaunched just recently following extensive
restoration over a two-year period at the Matthias Paulsen yard in Arnis an
der Schlei, and is now up for sale as a classic yacht in as-new condition.
This unusual classic with its magnificent timber and shining fittings is in
the best of company. Here in the middle of Hamburg’s HafenCity there are
many more vessels whose designers have really dedicated themselves to
special creations. For example the ice-breaking sailing yacht Bestevaer
55ST, the Superyacht sized performance cruiser Nordia 70 and the Noordkaper
43, a modern cruiser with the lines of a classic yacht.
Friends of big catamarans are also well served at the new hanseboot harbour.
Alongside the new Lipari 41 and other cats from the French twin-hull
specialists Fountaine Pajot, the German Baltic Werft shipyard present their
Balticat 43. And there are big modern cruiser-racers to thrill enthusiasts,
such as the Swan 66 and the Oyster 655, and the high-performance cruisers in
XL format from Contest and HanseYachts.
In addition, the In-Water hanseboot presents a variety of large motor
yachts, such as the new Oyster OM 43 from the British builder of the same
name, who previously built mainly sailing yachts. Other yachts with size and
luxury, and a whole range of styles, include the Fleming 65, the Elegance
Open 60, the Princess 62, the Borncruiser 50 Retro Line an the Selene 49
Ocean Trawler.
And the yachts in these harbours are there not only to be admired. They are
in their element here, and can be taken out for test drives. Some hanseboot
exhibitors having been taking this opportunity for many years now to present
their yachts and boats not only in the exhibition halls, but also at the
in-water show. Flensburger Yachtservice, for example, is making its
high-tech performance cruiser Finn-Flyer 36 available for test drives, and
Race2win Yachtbau are providing their 6.50 metre Mini class boat.
hanseboot has been scoring since 1991 with its harbour, providing a direct
link with the oceans of the world. That is particularly attractive to
builders who makes XL class yachts, giving them easy access to Germany’s
best established international boat show. The figures from the past years
also show how well the In-Water hanseboot is accepted by visitors. About
22,000 of them went to the hanseboot harbour last year. This year the figure
is expected to be even higher, as admission is free to both the hanseboot
At the pontoon facilities of the heritage harbour, the boat builders’

experience of the 48 metre schooner Regina Maris from Traditional Sailing
Charter BV, or go on board a Type X 61 sailing yacht to find out about
training and charter offers from the German Ocean Sports Association
(Deutscher Hochseesportverband HANSA).
A shuttle bus operates at regular 30-minute intervals to take visitors from
the Messehallen to the Elbe and back again. There is also a MARITIME CIRCLE
LINE to get to the heritage harbour by water. The launches of the MARITIME
CIRCLE LINE stop there as usual. To get to the City-Sporthafen, simply get
off at the heritage ship Cap San Diego. Visitors to hanseboot have a special
discount for use of the MARITIME CIRCLE LINE. On presentation of your
hanseboot admission ticket, it costs only EUR 5 instead of the usual EUR 8.

Latest press release:
More than 50,000 visitors at 50th hanseboot by Wednesday evening
DBSV President Torsten Conradi gives positive half-time report
50th International Boat Show Hamburg
continues until 1 November 2009
at Hamburg Messe site and In-Water hanseboot by the Elbe
(Hamburg, 28 October 2009) By Wednesday evening, more than 50,000 visitors had come to hanseboot 2009 in the exhibition halls of Hamburg Messe, to find out about yachts and boats, premieres and innovations in equipment and accessories, to compare and to buy. The weather was kind with plenty of sunshine at the first weekend, but since then rain and drizzle have clouded the scene – despite this, there has been excellent attendance at the In-Water hanseboot by the Elbe, which has proved very popular with two harbours for the first time in this anniversary year (admission free). Numerous watersports enthusiasts have visited the pontoons at the heritage harbour in HafenCity and at the City Sporthafen at Baumwall, for a close-up look at the big sailing and motor yachts in their element.
Torsten Conradi, President of the German Boat and Ship Building Association (DBSV) and Chairman of the Advisory Board of the International Boat Show Hamburg, gives a positive half-time report despite the difficult market circumstances. “The first half of this show have exceeded the expectations of many exhibitors. Visitor numbers are pleasing, and are up to the level of last year,” he said. “That was not necessarily going to happen in the current economic situation.” He felt that the course of the show so far proved the hanseboot concept right – “The Hamburg Boat Show combines traditional expert know-how with the presentation of many yacht and boat premieres. More than ever, hanseboot is making great efforts to attract young people to watersports. There are a whole range of activities to generate enthusiasm in young people for sailing, motor boating and other trend sports on the water.”
Watersport live is on the agenda, especially in Hall B5. The hanseboot arena, with its 20 by 15 metre water basin, wind machines and a stage for performances, features programme items all day, with match races, canoe polo, motor boat trials and diving demonstrations. Visitors are welcome to join in and to sail with the best. Stars of the sailing scene will appear in the new hanseboot SailZone in Hall B5, which was launched as a cooperative venture between hanseboot, the German Sailing Union (DSV), and the Segler-Zeitung magazine. There will be presentations by the individual class associations, and proposals for competitive sailing. Some of the best national team sailors will give interviews there, explaining the tricks of the trade in their boat category. For example the Sunday afternoon session from 15:00 will feature Jan-Peter Peckolt, who won the bronze medal together with his brother Hannes in the 49 Class at the 2008 Olympics.
Right next to the arena, there will be a German premiere in this anniversary year – a show which has attracted long queues since the opening of the 50th hanseboot. And fascinates visitors. The Volvo Ocean Race Experience. This spectacular interactive event gives thrilling insights into life on a Volvo Open 70 Yacht, and comprises three different attractions: The Ride, a simulator where up to twelve visitors can experience a wild ride on the Volvo Open 70 Yacht, the “machine out of hell”; The Dome, showing you life behind the scenes of the tough offshore race; and the Grinding Challenge, where muscle men can measure their strength in winch winding.
And the rest of the hanseboot supporting programme likewise gives visitors plenty of information and action, and useful tips and tricks from the experts. There are more opportunities than ever before for novices and experienced sailors and motor boat enthusiasts to get further training at the boat show. The hanseboot academy features leading sailing and yacht schools, with more than 250 places on seminars and courses, where participants can for example qualify for their sportsboat licence or learn to use the yacht radar, electronic navigation or distress signalling equipment.
The programme of lectures at the stand of segeln magazine gives plenty of useful tips and experience, in the big equipment hall B6, with experts from the editorial staff and the industry sharing their knowledge on subjects such as “Weather on board”, “The right trim” and “Electronic route planning”. As in previous years, YACHT magazine on the ground floor of Hall B2 has an informative programme of lectures lined up. The main emphasis is on cruise consulting, chartering and maritime weather. There will be practical and unbiased advice on the best sailing areas in the world from leading experts who know their area like the back of their hands, and pass on their knowledge free of charge.
hanseboot continues until 1 November, with some 700 exhibitors from 30 nations presenting around 1,000 boats and yachts – including numerous premieres – and international innovations in equipment and accessories. hanseboot 2009 is open daily from 10:00 to 19:00 until Friday, and from 10:00 to 18:00 at the weekend, at the Hamburg Fair site and at the In-Water hanseboot by the Elbe.
