Dutch Shipyard Pedro-Boat Creates New Boating Concept

In a new boating concept, Pedro is bringing the comforts of your own home to the water – without restrictions. The Pedro Liberty means freedom of living and mobility.

The Pedro Liberty is not a second home in a fixed place. The Dutch motor yacht builder has been renowned for its luxurious motor cruisers which are sold throughout Europe. Now, she brings a product with which the mobility of a motor yacht is combined with the comfort of a holiday bungalow. Marketing manager Ivar van der Leij explains: “We see more and more often that our customers want to be on the water for a longer time period. A season in our branche lastst not just from March to October. An increasing group also wants to be on their boat during winter time. That asks for a higher comfort level and other specifications of a motor yacht. In the Liberty, we have combined this high level of comfort with the mobility of a yacht. More space and more comfort, without decreasing the excellent sailing characteristics for which our boats are renowned for.”

Maximum comfort

The characteristic ‘liberty’ translates to the comfort what is behind the large sliding door in the living of the boat. That superb comfort is achieved by the use of comfortable furniture, modern sanitary facilities and high-quality kitchen appliances as you would find at home or in a luxurious holiday bungalow. The customer can decide the interior completely by him- or herself. Besides this, the living area is used to the max, as the superstructure is all on one level (no steps) and it has straight walls. Because of this, the Liberty can also easily be adapted to wheelchair users. On the bow, it has a large sitting area and the boat has covered gangways with a high and safe bulwark on both sides.

Convenient sailing characteristics

The Pedro Liberty has the sailing characteristics for which a Pedro is renowned. The boat is easy to steer, even by an unexperienced skipper. The standard bow- and stern thruster makes the Liberty extremely manoeuvrable. Another special feature is the optional anchor pole installation. With this, on can moor the boat without having to use lines. The integrated anchor poles are dropped with one button push and fix the boat to the bottom. One of life’s little luxuries! The Liberty is offered standard with a Volvo Penta Diesel engine, but can also be delivered with a hybrid propulsion system. With this, also the areas only open for electrical engines can be discovered.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
