During the Düsseldorf Boot trade fair (21 – 29 January 2017), the new Dutch yacht brand Keizer Yachts will experience its maiden voyage. The brand will make a debut in a unique segment with its modern runabout Keizer 42. Never before will a yacht be presented that offers such a look and feel, space and comfort for such a keen price. Keizer Yachts will cause a furore in the market of large open yachts with it.
The passionate water sports lovers Siep Keizer and Jos Brehler have been working on the realisation of their dream yacht for a few years now. Thanks to his international experience in the yacht world, Siep is fully aware of what can be purchased, but also what can be improved on the various existing models. "It was my dream to develop a yacht that not only looks fantastic, but is also practical and affordable," says Siep who is responsible for the fabulous lines together with Vripack.
His partner Jos Brehler emphasis Siep's statement. “There is not a single yacht that comes even close to the Keizer 42 with this mix of dimensions, inside space, practical convenience and price,” says Brehler. “We charge nearly half the price of our competitors with a price that starts from approximately € 235,000,” he continues. “How is that possible? Through a unique approach, setting up serial production at Bavaria Yachtbau and an exclusive dealer model. And the customer benefits!"
The Keizer 42 is inspired by the traditional runabout, but then with a modern drive line in the vessel's stern. As a buyer, you have the choice of two Volvo Penta D4 motors (2x 300 HP) or D6 (2x 400 HP) or a Mercury petrol engine with 2x 320 HP. Depending on the type of whether a motor or an engine is selected, the Keizer 42 can achieve a top speed of 40 knots (75 km/h).“There is not a single yacht that comes even close to the Keizer 42 with this mix of dimensions, inside space, practical convenience and price"
The new yacht measures 13.42 metres in length and 3.99 metres in width. These dimensions have been used to best advantage for the practical living space. The huge cockpit with a completely flat floor offers much sitting room, a huge recliner and a fully equipped (outside) galley. The cabrio roof that also makes the yacht suitable for not so nice weather is stored on top of the windscreen.
If you go below deck, you will have the feeling of entering a hotel suite. The master bedroom is equipped with two stylish sofas and a king size bed. The fully equipped "head" does not know what "concessions" are. As is the case in the master bedroom, the standing height here is also 1.90 m. There is a guest hut on the stern of the yacht with two beds and sufficient cupboard space.
Keizer Yachts will officially present the Keizer 42 to the press and public at the Düsseldorf Boot 2017 (hall 5, stand E21). The first yachts have now been sold and will be delivered to the clients before the end of the year. Keizer 42 technical specifications
