GRAF IPANEMA

The Birth of a new Legend. If, like us, you are boatbuilders with heart and soul, then you have one big dream: to build your own boat and put into practice all the ideas that you have developed over the years. Because we have always set ourselves a particular standard, we have gone one step further: We regard the "Graf Ipanema" as the continuation of a tradition begun by the boatbuilding families Smith and Riva: classic wooden boats with no compromises.

CONSTRUCTION HISTORY: Attuned to craftsmanship from head to toe

The "Graf Ipanema" rigorously follows the principle of classic boatbuilding. Nothing is left to chance. Not in the choice of materials, not in the construction principle, and certainly not in the implementation. In the boatyard we work exclusively with traditional tools. Our experienced boatbuilders move expertly between precision and intuition. And in so doing they get the best out of the wood. For limitless fun on the water.

      DETAILS: We have a weakness for perfection. Especially where details are concerned

      A perfect hand-crafted hull is one thing. But the special flair and distinctiveness are only created with the fond details. Fittings of chrome-plated brass, a masterpiece of a windscreen, sparkling upholstery work, instruments and switches as a visual and haptic experience.
      We have the vast majority of the equipment details manufactured lovingly and individually in select factories especially for the "Graf Ipanema". Only in this way can true pride of ownership be created.

      Technology, Design, Equipment

      TECHNOLOGY: It's easy to stay cool when you've power in reserve

      The motorisation of the "Graf Ipanema" leaves nothing to be desired. Whether single-motor with Z-drive for the pragmatist, or twin-motor with shaft drive for the purist, whether diesel or petrol: acceleration, running smoothness and top speed are peerless in every case. We install state of the art steering and instruments – although admittedly that shouldn't be visible on a classic boat. Anyway, you only get stranded with the "Graf Ipanema" when you want to!

          DESIGN: A man who knows his trade

          "No compromises" was the principle for the planning and construction of the "Graf Ipanema" from the very beginning. We then also gained one of the grand old men of motorboat design as a partner in Winfried H. Wilke. Some of the most trendsetting designs for timeless motorboats originated from his design office "Yacht Design International" in Kassel. Unfortunately, Wilke has now passed away. However, he left us with an aesthetically and functionally convincing work in the shape of the "Graf Ipanema".

              EQUIPMENT: The love is in the details

              When building classic wooden boats, some people succumb all too easily to the temptation to compromise under the surface. That is not the case with the "Graf Ipanema". We continue our uncompromising striving for the optimum with the equipment, too. For instance, the most noble of materials can be found even in the berth. Everything impresses through complete perfection. We also accommodate special wishes gladly and with virtuosity. The table, for example, is good for a surprise, hiding as it does within its interior a clever piece of joinery and four champagne flutes for a luxurious drink. By the way, an elaborately integrated cooler ensures the correct drinking temperature. So: "A votre santé!"

                  Custom Build - Dreams: as individual as yourself

                  Classic motorboats made of wood are something quite special. They testify to a sense of style and independence, in fact we would even go so far as to say: grandeur! If you want to dot the i in individuality, you've come to the right place.

                  HARDTOP: Almost like on the Canale Grande

                  Sometimes you want a little more protection or privacy. Based on the closed water taxis in Venice, we have a hardtop variant up our sleeves. The interior equipment can be designed to suit the customer’s wishes. The hardtop has a panorama glass sliding roof and side windows. The frame construction is – of course – wooden. The sliding roof can be retracted automatically to make it easier to board the boat – or to enjoy the sunshine.

                  WALKAROUND: Classic with a touch of jazz

                  We have something for those who like to surround themselves with guests and offer them a special experience: a communicative and practical walkaround. The helmstand in the middle not only gives the coxswain a better overview, it also creates space for a communicative get-together. Whether as a classic bathing boat or as a tender: leisure fun and practicality on the one hand and elegance and exclusivity on the other merge to form a perfect unit here. Here too, we accommodate all special requests.
