Category Description

Pointedly slow, dignified and pompous, these vessels seem to seek to show with all their appearance that time does not mean anything to them. Ten or a hundred years will pass, but their sturdy steel hulls will continue to cut through the wave as if nothing ever happened. So what if the steam boilers in the engine rooms of these slow-moving yachts gave way to failsafe commercial diesel engines long ago? Their polished and shiny decks are still adorned with funnels pitched toward the stern.

Steel, wood, plastic – it is not very important what a retro steamer is made of. The main thing is that it is soaked in marine traditions both in terms of design and spirits. The classic mahogany interiors absorb the history of the century and the owners, and they turn into unique and almost museum worthy pieces over the years. In yachting, the retro style is the domain of the wise men for whom it is not the speed or the latest in navigation electronics that matters but a subtle sense of harmony between the sea, the ship and the host of years gone by.

And if one day you notice a breathtaking steamer with old-fashioned contours on the horizon, rest assured that there is a hardcore grandfather behind the steering wheel whose knowledge of the affairs of the sea will give a dozen young and hot yachtsmen a run for their money .
