Interview with Kristijan Nikl in the Slovenian national newspaper

 

Kristijan Nikl was invited to have an interview with the national newspaper Delo for “The name of the day”.


"Mr Nikl designed the sophisticated boat Marex 320 Aft Cabin Cruiser in close cooperation with Marex A/S within two years of planning, 3D design and documenting. The greatest experts in this field use only superlatives, when describing the boat."

 

"His plans for the future include his own design studio. Nikl Design has currently two employees, but Kristijan wants to hire two or three new employees to be able to work on multiple projects simultaneously."

Marex 320 ACC received another award, this time in Dusseldorf.

»The best of the best from the motor boating world. «


Which are the best boats in the world and the winners of The Motor Boat of the Year Awards 2013 have been announced yesterday (14th of January 2013) at a gala evening in London.


»After intense debate, the boat test teams from Motor Boats Monthly and Motor Boat & Yachting have narrowed down hundreds of craft to a handful of potential winners« and finally judges decided which ten boats deserve these awards.

 

Marex 320 Aft Cabin Cruiser won this prestigious award in category 'Trawler Yacht & Aft Cabin'.

Marex 320ACC on front cover of Motor Boats Monthly

 

"Fast, frugal and full of cruising cleverness" are the words on front cover. The boat was tested by Nick Burnham, who also wrote a long article in which he is apparently impressed with "the quality of construction and sheer volume of space".

 

"Both cabins are so good, that it's hard to pick a master, a far cry from the usual 'one good, one average' cabins of old. Big windows offer a great view out, headroom is off the scale too..."

 

It is amazing that the word 'compromise' never crops out with this boat, "because the balance between space and pace has been so finaly honed", wrote Mr. Burnham.

 

"Wide bulwarked side decks, a large bathing platform, double spring cleats, and a large transom locker with built-in fender storage attest to this boat's practical nature."

 

These are just some of many excellent ratings. You can read more in the last January edition of Motor Boats Monthly.

 

Here is also a video with Nick Burnham testing the boat.

Another test of the new family boat Marex 320 ACC

 

The Norwegian journalist Atle Knutsen wrote that with this Marex boat "the key needs of a family were identified when they spend an extended vacation at sea:

 

Standing height and spaciousness, giant berths, the class most spacious and best toilet and shower facilities, a first class galley, extremely user-friendly and safe deck layout, an exemplary practical canopy that also opens up the patio, the highly social couch around the dinner table - all surrounded by a timeless design."

 

They were testing the boat and they think "320 ACC set a new standard for the Nordic family boats".

Feature in the November issue of MBY magazine

Marex 320 ACC is featured in the current issue of Motor Boat & Yachting.

 

Dave Marsh was testing the boat at the Southampton Boat Show and he named the Marex 320 ACC "one of our stars of Southampton". He was very excited and surprised about the fact that this smaller version of Marex 370 ACC has everything its bigger sibling has and even more. This is a mystery to him.

 

He also said that "a large part of the 320's success is the design of its robust but superbly moulded internal structure which is more shrewdly planned than most I've seen".

 

Among many others things he was totally amazed with "implausibly roomy engineroom with levels of accessibility that would shame many 50-footers".

10 Great Powerboats Seen at Southampton

 

Marex 320 Aft Cabin Cruiser was one of them, thinks the author of article Alex Smith.

 

»Marex 320 ACC employs a panoramic aft space to generate the kind of accommodation you rarely see in the sub 35-foot sector. This 28-knot cruiser is another beautifully built Marex, full of sumptuous materials and first-rate workmanship.«

The shipyard visit - Marex 320 ACC

 

There is an extensive article on Baatsans.no about the new Marex 320 ACC, "designed in collaboration with Kristijan Nikl and Espen Aalrud" (Marex). They were simply amazed with all these great new solutions and they think it will be "difficult for other 32 footers (also larger boats) to match"

 

Everywhere on the boat there is plenty of space, regardless if we are talking about moving around, the engine room, or storage. "The front cabin has a clever tilted bed, good headroom and the deepest drawers that I've seen in a boat", says the author of the article.
