No matter what you're looking for in the commercial sector, Schionning Designs can assist.

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.

Schionning Designs is excited to announce a new initiative aimed at improving the communication between our current owners and builders, both in Australia and around the world.

Arrow 1500 Progresses in South Africa
The new Arrow 1500 design already has the first boat under construction by well-known local South African boatbuilders Shelter Marine. Despite having only begun a few months ago, both hulls are turned as you can see above. The biggest Arrow to date, the 1500 has already attracted a wave of interest as it hits the mark for those wanting serious blue water cruising capabilities. The 100% flat panel construction is a big feature of the series, and only saves more time the bigger the build. With a number of Arrow designs being launched or hitting the water soon, the design concept is proving not only popular but practical and innovative. For more information on the new Arrow 1500 design click here, or learn more about Shelter Marine see their website or find them on Facebook to follow the project.
