Dutch Masters
Welcome to a new generation of not-so-heavy metal
Dutch steel has always been a byword for quality boatbuilding but for many
younger buyers, brought up on a diet of sporty GRP craft, the conservative
styling and limited performance hasnt always hit the mark. Now a new
generation of Dutch craft has started to challenge that view with a raft of
striking new designs, such as this revolutionary new Steeler Panorama FF46.
By offering an option to build it in aluminium with powerful IPS engines, it
has even overcome the performance hurdle. We sent Jack Haines to Holland
to test this and two other modern metal miracles. Read the results from p48.

The truth about


Antifouling regulations
A recent survey has suggested that tighter restrictions could put people off boating
Why is antifouling A BCF survey has found that

in the news? the proper protective gear
A European regulation covering all
biocidal products may make it illegal for
leisure boat owners to apply, or even
buy, some commonly available
antifouling paints. This is despite a
recent survey from the British Coatings
Federation (BCF) which suggested that
25% of boaters would give up their
hobby if DIY application was banned.

What is behind all this?


The drive for increased scrutiny began
in May 2012 when the European Union
passed the Biocidal Products
Regulation (BPR), which came into
force in September 2013 and restricted
the use of certain products. The EU set

CORMATE T27 New to these shores, the Supermarine T27 is a ery beast with

in its native Scandinavia since 2006, this is
the rst time were seeing Cormates on our shores, thanks to new
UK agent Fine Design in Poole.
Like Hyrdrolift, performance plays a huge part in what the
Cormate brand is about, made clear by the fact our 350hp, 6.2-litre
V8 test boat is the (slightly) watered down version, capable of only
50 knots. You can have this model with a 600hp (yes six hundred)
petrol that is reportedly capable of 70 knots, which is terrifying.
Fifty knots felt more than enough in a stinking rough day off
Poole that saw a heaving swell interspersed with an angry chop.
It was a perfect testing ground and the Supermarine T27 positively
lapped it up, leaping from crest to crest with the ease and
enthusiasm of a spring lamb. Even when we did end up in the odd
trough the hull simply shrugged off the impact and carried on up
the back of the next wave.
The naturally aspirated V8 helps here because there isnt a second
of lag from throttle input to propeller so you can quickly dig yourself
out of trouble. Im sure the 350hp diesel is a great match for the boat
but I was glad for the petrol on test. Plus it sounds amazing: a deep,
cultured V8 warble lovely stuff.

All these delights are easily accessible from our own South Coast,
particularly via Cherbourg and the Channel Islands. First-time
visitors will nd North Brittanys spectacular seascapes astonishingly
unlike home, while regulars are always grateful that these stunning
cruising grounds never seem to change.

ST MALO
The glorious bight between Cap Frhel and the Rance is Brittanys
nest landfall. Frhel encloses this stretch in a kindly way, sheltering
a string of inlets and bays looping down to the spires and skyline of
St Malo. From well offshore Czembre Island is a distinctive smudge,
and as you draw closer the rocks and beacons take shape around
Grand Jardin lighthouse. On a sunny day, gleaming beaches beckon a
welcome and you see sails in all directions.
St Malo and its old walled town are famous North Brittany stars, so
to arrive here with your own boat is always exciting. Tall stone houses
look out from the ramparts, their steep pitched roofs and high
chimneys unmistakably Breton. Opposite St Malo, the traditional
resort of Dinard has a quaint Belle poque avour, with its jumble of
seaside hotels and rambling family villas.

POLE DANCING
On the Canal des Ardennes that skirts the Belgium border, we
experience a new form of lock-activating. Its called The Pole Dance.
Maybe a hundred metres or so from the lock, you have to be on the
lookout for a steel arm that stretches out over the canal. Dangling
from it is a two-metre length of rubber tubing.
The technique is to ease your boat alongside the invariably slimy
pole, at which point your First Mate makes a Tarzan-like lunge
towards it, grabs a hold and gives it a determined 180 twist. Get it
right and you initiate the sequence to set the lock-opening in motion.
Get it wrong and youre hitting reverse.
But this being France, theres always a variation on the theme.
And in this case its The Wire. So instead of the steel arm,
occasionally they dangle the rubber pipe off a thin wire thats The inside of locks
