Key Yachting Ltd will be exhibiting six boats at the Southampton Boat Show from 14th September, including three models that will be making their show debut. Step aboard all of these boats on marina berths M427-433, the show runs until Sunday 23rd.

Grand Soleil 34 – Show debut!

The well-respected Italian yacht builder Cantiere Del Pardo, has launched a brand new entry level yacht, the Grand Soleil 34. With a plumb bow, flared stern and elegant lines, she continues the steady evolution of the marque, whilst retaining the DNA of Grand Soleil. High stability ensures that she is equally suited to short handed cruising as well as racing with a full team. Naval architects Skyron have worked closely with the engineering team at Grand Soleil to produce a boat that will be ultra-competitive under both the IRC and ORC rules. As the small boat of a large yard, fit, finish and equipment are to a higher level than many competitors.

Nautitech 47 Power – Show debut!

The 47 is phenomenally stylish and spacious, with the added benefit of a flybridge for a fantastic space to view the water ahead and relax with your family. Her 2 x 225hp engines facilitate a top speed of 22 knots. The showstopping 3 cabin model on display at the show is available for immediate delivery.

The Tofinou 10 – Show debut!

This stunning new model is the first from Tofinou's Cruising range, designed to answer demand for the same classic yachts but with more space below decks, to afford comfortable overnight stays. The elegant and timeless hull shape is combined with twin rudders and swing or fin keels that offer fast, easily controlled sailing, with exemplary handling. The deck layout is very neat and crisp, with control lines concealed wherever possible. This emphasises the wide side decks, clear foredeck and uncluttered cockpit layout. As standard a varnished mahogany tiller, which absolutely fits with the boat's style, is provided, although a single large wheel is available as an option. The Tofinou range is applauded for offering traditional styling, with an exceptional finish. Yet she remains contemporary, with plenty of teak throughout as standard, and beautiful complementary ivory-coloured spars. She boasts a forward double berth, saloon table, galley, and proper bathroom. The aft cabin is ideal for children or guests.

The winner of IRC1 at last week's Dartmouth regatta, the J/122 is a versatile 40 foot cruiser-racer, with comfortable live-aboard accommodation, a refined deck layout, low VCG keel with a moderate 7.2' draft. The hull & deck are built using superior infusion molding technology to maximise durability and long term value. An IRC-friendly cruiser/racer, the J/122e offers a completely furnished interior, a simple to manage balanced sail plan, head turning sailing performance and great looks; perhaps the ultimate 40' day sailing, weekending, racing and cruising sailboat? The J/122e on display at the show is a pre-owned model, currently listed for sale with Key Yachting.

Now into triple number production figures, the Open 40 is Nautitech's third design from Marc Lombard, France's leading designer of performance multihulls.

This, Nautitech's 3rd generation 40 footer, features twin helm positions, a transom passage to give easy access from one hull to the other, rigid bimini which offers complete shelter to the cockpit, and gracefully inclined forward saloon windows to create a sleek and elegant profile. Everyone who steps onboard is pleasantly surprised by the sociable, open plan cockpit through to saloon, which is all on one level, as are the helmstations.
