«I have a large family - seven children - so of course I had my eye on the
48-footer. Besides I like to spend time in the kitchen when I'm on vacation and on this boat the galley is the central area»," said the German actor.
He noted that he is impressed with «green» concept of the shipyard Greenline: «We made a big mess on the Earth, it's time to think about it». Like other Greenline boats, the 48-foot model, which caught the star's eye, is equipped with solar panels and electric motors. On electric power alone, the boat can travel 20 miles at 6 knots - in peace and quiet.
Hardy Krueger Jr, son of German cinematic legend Hardy Krueger, is known for his roles in films such as «Dracula» and«Asterix and Obelix vs. Caesar». He inherited his love of water recreation, like his love of movies, from his titular father. « We had a garage in the basement of our house for the boat, so we'd just launch it and go».
