Steel hull CH Explorer 1500 on transport to Harlingen

Last Saturday morning, the beautiful hull of the new CH Explorer 1500, built for Cruising Home B.V. by Smeding Jachtservice, was transported to Harlingen.
Using special transport, the casco was driven from the steel construction hall early in the morning to the lifting location on the quay at the water's edge, where the CH Explorer 1500 was lifted into the water.
From there, she was transported by push barge to Multiship Holland B.V. in Harlingen. In the coming weeks, the CH Explorer 1500 will be sandblasted and painted at Multiship.

Commissioning of the Raymarine DockSense Control system on board the CH Explorer 1250.


On 6 April, the succesful commissioning of the very first Raymarine DockSense Control system took place on board the CH Explorer 1250.

By means of a 3D joystick from Aventics and various camera and GPS systems, docking a ship has never been easier.
By creating a virtual fender around the ship, the ship will never come closer to the quay and will automatically slow down and position itself and stay in position!
While staying in position, the skipper has all the time in the world to put the lines around the bollards.
Even when waiting for a bridge or lock, the Raymarine DockSense Control system will keep the boat in place fully independently, even in the middle of the water!

First test run with the brand new CH Explorer 1250 "Wally".

The brand new CH Explorer 1250 "Wally" has completed its first successful test run.

In the next few weeks Raymarine and Aventics will do the commissioning of the Raymarine DockSense Control system.

An exciting moment because Cruising Home is the first in Europe to have this highly innovative system installed on one of its ships.

Also on board this CH Explorer 1250 is the stabilisation system from Magnus Master.
The first system worldwide to be fitted to such a type of vessel.
