The new flagship of the range, the Yamarin Cross 75 BR (bow rider) was announced in the summer of 2014 and made an initial appearance in public at the Dusseldorf Boat Show, from where Alex Smith recorded his first impressions.
Featuring the strength and lightweight performance of an aluminium hull and the versatile, clean finish of a fibreglass deck, it's no surprise that the entire Yamarin Cross range has been well received by the British boat buying public.
The helming position is fantastically comfortable on the 75 BR and the list of clever design features includes dedicated fender holders, removable bow lockers and a fold-away cleat next to the helmsman to aid singlehanded berthing.
However, the competition for this segment in the market is fierce, even between models from the same builder. So it's hard to resist pointing out that the Yamarin Cross 64 BR costs €25,000 (£18,000) less, yet manages nearly the same carrying capacity and top speed.
