With the Cannes Yachting Festival set to kick off next week in France, Brunswick Corporation has announced another major addition to the event.
The industry leading conglomerate has announced they will introduce a new brand of boats called Navan by Quicksilver when the event opens September 12th.
“After extensive consumer research and product development, we are thrilled to officially premiere Navan by Quicksilver to usher in the next era of performance and luxury,” Benoit Verley, said president of Venture Boat Group, in a company statement.
Brunswick is expecting to launch the Navan brand in the United States in early 2024.
The company has been coy about releasing photos or video of the new boats, although some international dealers have published sales photos for prospective buyers.
The initial launch will consist of two models, the C30 and S30, which will both feature twin-stepped hulls and Mercury Marine Verado outboard engines.
Power options will include a single 300 hp V8 motor, twin 225 horsepower V10's, or twin 250 hp V8's.
The S30 and C30 will both have a twin step hull, commonly used in racing boats, which reduces drag, making the boats faster and more fuel efficient. The forward cabin of each boasts a double berth, a large skylight, generous storage, a toilet with an electric flushing system and a pressured hot water shower, making it ideal for families and guests seeking the thrill of the water without sacrificing comfort. Additionally, the models were built to maximize the Brunswick technology portfolio with bow to stern synergies of innovation and performance.
The C30 will be the enclosed cabin version while the S30 will offer an open fiberglass T-top and a stainless steel frame. Both boats will come equipped with Simrad NSX chart plotters and a C-Zone system.
Other standout features will include an ergonomic helm with digital dashboard up to 12” flushed dual screens, fully digital switching operated by C-Zone, a 12v air conditioner system with dedicated battery bank for dock usage, a battery bank inverter system capable for off the dock electric grill usage, premium upholstery with diamond pattern, a large bow with sun lounge, a symmetrical cabin and console with deep port and starboard side walkways and high freeboard, and bow rails for heightened safety.
The S30 fiberglass T-top combines style and sport with integrated acrylic windows, rocket launcher rod holders and a powder coated 316 stainless steel frame. Additional features include pivoting cockpit seating with full galley underneath 2-way convertible cockpit, and dedicated fender storage.
The C30 offers a completely enclosed cabin with two rows of seating provide plenty of indoor space for passengers, with port and starboard fiberglass doors exiting on deck. The aft salon flip-up window opens to the cockpit, getting everyone together. Additional features include an opening XXL hardtop roof hatch, additional interior galley with sink and stove, choice of dedicated fender storage or port and starboard flip-up seats, and a dual helm seat with bolsters.
