An exquisite synthesis of form and function...
What started with a passion for traditional boat-building and developed continuously over four generations, has now become the epitome of high performance classic mahogany boats.
While the company now concentrates solely on power runabouts, for more than two decades it built both power and sail craft including the Star class keelboats. In the 1950’s, Boesch were the sole ski boats used at Geneva, which was then the centre of water-skiing in Europe, and from 1960 through to 1976, and then again in 1981, 1983 and 1991, Boesch were the official tow boats at the World and European water-ski championships.
Boesch boats are not only sumptuously elegant and timeless, they are also the outcome of a prestigious design approach defining the benchmark in terms of performance and comfort. The exclusively Boesch experience is based on a combination of factors: the moderate V profile, the positioning of the engine in the centre of gravity, and a direct drive train to the propeller. This produces perfect trim both in competitive situations and for opulent cruising.
The Boesch helm is in a class of its own featuring a stunning mahogany panel and a clean arrangement of instruments. With a folding seat for two persons, the Boesch 970 St. Tropez can be comfortably handled either standing up or from a sitting position.
With its two powerful high-performance V8 engines, this boat has enough power to tow a water skier and cruise with your entire family or friends on board at the same time. Despite its impressive size, the two engines of the Boesch 970 St Tropez alongside the DTS-system enable the driver to manoeuvre the boat with spirit and finesse.
The horizontal surfaces of the transom stern and the integrated steps are beautifully fashioned from teak whilst a shower and a separate large fridge are perfect for bathing and cold drinks on a Summer’s day. The U shaped bench in the lounge offers ample room for friends to relax. These comfort features can easily be enhanced, for example with an additional fridge or bar area. Clever use of space a provides a variety of shelves and additional storage compartments, ideal for a day out on the water.
A magnificent mahogany sliding door in the foredeck reveals the interior of the Boesch 970 St Tropez. The wide and comfortable relaxation area under deck is the perfect spot for a siesta or simply a quiet place to unwind. Light dappled on the surface of the water outside can be appreciated from the comfort of the interior portholes. Finally, a separate head and additional stowage in the cabin are both practical and popular features.
These boats can be built with a variety of cockpit layouts to suit your needs. Alternatively, this boat can be semi-customised or fully-customised to create a bespoke and personal boat, luxury yacht tender or chase boat.
