Compared to our familiar PTS 26, the PTS31 has extra space; length, width and height. As a result of this, a major leap in functionality could and can be made. For example, there is headroom in the cabin, a kitchen could be realized that would not be out of place in a small apartment and a wet room with spacious toilet and shower.
2 so-called dog cages give sleeping space to children, the spacious round seat can easily be converted into a large 2 person bed and also on the back of the sun bed can be slept by 2 persons in a spacious bed.
Much attention has been paid to optimizing the design, finding a large number of "out of the box" solutions. For example, the front seats can be extended to 2 person benches, the dashboard is completely digital, the transparent mirror can be opened and serve as a swimming platform. Worth mentioning is the electric drive, specially developed for us, as an option. It is placed completely stand alone so that it can be used under all circumstances as an alternative to the primary diesel drive. With the combination of diesel and electric sailing, we are ready for possible future regulations in certain sailing areas.
The cabin is spacious and light, the materials used are modern and low-maintenance and the interior can be decorated according to your own wishes. The overall design has classic features, with incisive gangways, with which the ship remains family to the PTS 26 with a nod to the Swedish Petterssons. The interior is fresh and sleek. For colour and charisma we have asked visual artist Stefan Yordanov to provide each new ship with a work of art against the rear wall in the cabin.
The first introduction was at the Hiswa Amsterdam last September. In the past weeks we have tested and refined extensively. Furthermore, a sailing test for the Water Champion took place and we made a promotional film.
