The Pinasse motor cruiser was designed with many goals in mind, but near the top of the list was the desire to produce an environmentally friendly boat with relatively low fuel consumption. Also crucial in the designer’s mind was the ease of maintenance, combined with versatility and the ability to cruise in the many different waters of northern Europe – from the North Sea to mudflats, from the Baltic to inland waterways and lakes. Built in Germany, the Pinasse 46 was conceived by Hamburg sailor and journalist Svante Domizlaff, and brought to life by yacht designer Georg Nissen. Another Slang and Amos Fricke was able to capture the unusual combination of performance and it’s unique shape on North Germany’s Schlei river under a crystal clear winter sky.
