New to Australia and New Zealand is the Focus Power 33 is a 10m cruiser with a generous 3.47m beam, designed by world-renowned naval architect Tony Castro and awarded Boat of the Year Europe in 2015. 

Brisbane based McIntyre Equipment is the exclusive importer for Focus, following a decade of research into the global offering in this popular but sparsely populated segment.

“I have spent many years undertaking market investigation looking for a stand-out sports cruiser that would accommodate our Steyr engines and ‘wow’ the Australian marketplace,” explains Rob McIntyre, director at McIntyre Equipment in Brisbane, representatives for Steyr Motors Australia.

“Our aim is to expand our recreational market, showcase the benefits of the Steyr product and introduce this amazing sports cruiser, with all the support of a national service network.”

Sanctuary Cove Boat Sales, the team behind Hurricane Boats Australia, based at Sanctuary Cove, will represent the Focus brand and will host the Australian launch of Focus at this year’s Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, 23 to 26 May.

“We have a great range of day boats in the Hurricane deck boat range, and now we can offer a beaut little weekender,” said Grant Flanagan, Director at Hurricane Boats Australia.

Based in Holland and with production in Croatia, Focus Motor Yachts offer a quality build, with contemporary shape and a generous list of features.

The design and format of the Focus Power 33 will suit the Australian and New Zealand  boating lifestyle with several spacious areas to relax as well as a two cabin layout. On the Focus Power 33, the main galley is lower, leaving plenty of room for the saloon lounge upstairs with a massive folding cockpit table. There’s a barbecue or grill option off the back of the boat or on the side for fuss-free preparation of meals.

In terms of power, the boat is fitted with twin Steyr Motors 266S36, 260hp engines, which is an upgrade from the boats standard 220Hp engines but can accommodate the smaller 230Hp or larger 280Hp motors in the same envelope.

“The 266 engines take the boat from 32 knots to around 37 knots,” said Rob. “It certainly gives the boat more legs as you can comfortably cruise at 30 knots, meaning more economical fuel consumption and longer range.”

It has walkaround side decks, easy access steps up each side of the vessel, sunpads on the foredeck, a rear cockpit table that lowers to create a sunbed, engine access in the floor, and a two-seater helm. Replete with options and extras, including Simrad navigation equipment, the first model will be priced at $AUD499,000. /
