The new Linssen DS 53 (rendered above), designed by renowned Naval Architect Don Shead, expands upon the distinctive styling and solidly unique development of Linssen's DS 45 shown below.
The Linssen DS 45 was Linssen's first entry into the fiberglass cruiser market, and like the new DS 53, it has several innovative features and beautiful and distinctive lines. The DS 45 rides on a 22-degree running surface with propeller and shaft tunnels, developed by Don Shead with Rotterdam's Delft Technical University. Both the DS 53 and the DS 45 feature a patented Linnsen Variotop which allows the cockpit and helm to be an open express-style or protected from the elements within a minute of pressing the button.
The Linssen DS 45 and DS 53 echo several traditional sources but as a whole define their own standard and have made their own place in history. With a price tag around $950,000 the Linssen Yachts feature impeccably finished details and interiors with cherry wood, teak and holly soles, suede headliners, and Italian leather built to the specifications of Italian designer Roberto del Re. The Linssen Yachts are clean and yet at the same time intricately functional and comfortable and unique.
