The Schionning Designs design team have been busy at work over the end of 2017 to complete some very unique commercial designs for some custom clients. The new Schionning commercial range features an eco-friendly dive cat with electric propulsion, an 11 metre passenger ferry and a bi-plane sailing cat perfect for skippered charters. No matter what you're looking for in the commercial sector, Schionning Designs can assist. If there is nothing that matches your needs, don't hesitate to contact our design team for a quote on a customised design and kit that meets your specifications.

Northstar Yachts Launch G-Force 1500C 'IMMAGINA'

Congratulations once again to the talented and efficient building team at Northstar Yachts, who have recently launched their second G-Force 1500C ('MAJOR TOM' being the first) called 'IMMAGINA'. The boat has some striking orange colouring along the waterlines which really adds some flair and style, not to mention she is floating very high and looks incredibly light. Test sails are beginning soon, with a very talented crew of sailors - so stay tuned for some video and photos of her showing what she can do off Cape Town, South Africa. She looks fantastic and we will upload any photos and details to the G-Force 1500C design page when available.

'DUET' Arrow 1360 Launched

A big congratulations to proud owner Geo Ulrich and builders Northstar Yachts on the launch of the first Arrow 1360 design, christened 'DUET'! She is floating nice and high on her lines, with the mast and rigging still to be fitted. Touching down by crane at the Royal Cape Yacht Club after a road journey on a special flatbed truck, the boat looks fantastic and has been turning heads already. More photos and information will be available soon as the finishing touches are completed, and we will post any updates as we get them. See the Arrow 1360 design page for more.

Arrow 1200 Taking Shape in Port Stephens

Carl and Beth McConnochie have been working away quietly (and very neatly!) in Salt Ash, on Port Stephens in NSW. Their Arrow 1200 recently turned the second hull, and the boat is really starting to take shape. Carl and Beth have been keeping an excellent record of their build with beautifully detailed photos, available to view on their build page here. 

For more information on the Arrow 1200 design, see the design portfolio here.
