T he wish for fast, safe, comfortable and sophisticated sailing has been realised impressively in the MAVEA Yachts GmbH & Co. KG’s SLYDER catamaran series. After all, their catamarans offer the perfect combination of sailing performance, simple and safe handling, comfort, ambiance, as well as the extensive possibility of implementing personal amenity wishes.
Markus Kuhner, CEO of the Eschborn-based MAVEA Yachts GmbH & Co.KG, took over SLYDER Yachts a couple of years ago. Since then, him and his team have substantially reorganised and restructured the former SLYDER brand. “My designer, engineering team and I have completely revised the basic concept, extensively improved it on the basis of my longstanding sailing experience and have implemented many new ideas,” explains Kuhner.
Today, SLYDER stands for sailing performance with an exceptional ambiance, consistent single-hand operation and the highest quality. “Our ultimate goal is to produce yachts with which sailors can have many carefree years,” explains Kuhner. To achieve this, SLYDER puts special emphasis on quality management, while using materials and equipment from industry leading companies. “We try to implement all client wishes – to the extent possible – which makes us stand out as a small manufacturer. We ultimately want to be an alternative for enthusiastic monohull sailors whose partners and families don’t always want to go downstairs and who simply prefer comfortable, upright sailing. After all, many sailors find it hard to find the suitable yacht that not only sails nicely (which many catamarans don’t do), but that their partners also like,” smiles Kuhner.
Currently, SLYDER offers two exciting catamaran models whose standard versions come with equipment and furnishings far above the common market level. The SLYDER 49 is a modern performance cruising catamaran with an excellent ambiance for ambitious sailors and the entire family. The new SLYDER 59, on the other hand, is a racy, luxurious sailing catamaran which combines high performance, easy handling and extraordinary looks. “Our first edition of the SLYDER 59 has an exceptional equipment package and comes with electric propulsion − for an especially attractive price,” says Kuhner.
SLYDER catamarans combine the highest aesthetics with German quality and safety. “Let us convince you of our concept and realise your very special dream with a SLYDER,” concludes Kuhner.
