This winter, the Finistère-based yard Pogo Structures showcased its fuel-efficient motor boat, the Loxo 32, at the International Nautic Paris boat show and the Düsseldorf Boot. Proving to be a real hit with the public, Christian Bouroullec’s teams will now be able to proceed with a whole series of sea trials for those sailors who expressed an interest in this rather opportune motor boat, which is easy on the eye and pleasant to helm, with the added benefit of well-controlled fuel consumption.
Christian Bouroullec now has a clear vision of the public reaction to the Loxo 32, a motor boat that presents a whole new set of challenges for a yard so renowned for its yachts.
“The Düsseldorf Boot 2018 went very well on the whole”, explains Christian Bouroullec. “In addition to the numerous visitors who came to look over the Loxo 32, the reviews and the feedback were all very positive. A large number of the visitors were intrigued by the boat’s modern look, which draws the eye and is a drastic departure from the other motor boats present in the Hall. The simple, uncluttered design and concept had real appeal right across the board, from motor boat owners to yachties. The Loxo 32’s low fuel consumption enjoyed the expected success and really intrigued and impressed the visitors, whether it be for use on inland waterways (lakes, rivers…) or the open sea. On several occasions, the general and very interesting consensus was that “it’s a new era for motor boats”.
The order book is already feeling the effects of the Loxo 32’s strong presence at these major international shows. “Since the Paris Nautic, we’ve welcomed a number of interested parties. After a tour of the workshops and sea trials, Loxo No.8 has been ordered.”
“We have requests for information every day and 44 sea trials are scheduled over the coming months,” concludes the boss of the Structures yard.
