Dragonfly Newsletter - Spring 2013

Post by TC »

Photos came with the newsletter, but are probably not worth adding. One struck me as interesting though, it came with the section regarding the get together in France. There appears to be at least 30 DFs in the pic! I know of 3 DFs in the PNW and see one occasionally (Steve B's Flexible Flyer) so 30 in one pic is fantastic!

The newsletter:

In The Eve Of Spring
Hopefully, we are seeing the very last of winter with a winter storm raging in Denmark these days as we are all now just waiting for spring time, sun and higher temperatures. Despite the snow, spring activities are increasing here at the yard and the first boats are scheduled for launching just around Easter.

Our own golden DF 32 demo was launched already beginning this month when returning from the Fredericia Boat Show and is now just waiting for the test sail season to start.

Boat Shows
January’s boat shows in London and Düsseldorf were great successes for Dragonfly, and these were just the starters to the many boat shows where you can meet us this year – next time we will put the Dragonfly on display will be in Norway during the first and last weekends of April.

Dragonfly has been represented in the Norwegian market for nine years, we however believe that time is now right for a new, more active sales strategy. We will therefore be attending the Bergen in-water boat show “Dra till sjøs” from 4-7 April and later same month the Oslo in-water boat show @Tjuvholmen from 25-28 April.

We look forward to meeting our Norwegian clients – present and future.

Also in April, 10-14 April, Dragonfly will be at display at the Multihull Boat Show at La Grande Motte near Montpellier in Southern France. For more information on this boat show, please see www.les-salons-du-multicoque.com

Ready for Sailing Dragonfly this Summer?
If you want to go sailing a Dragonfly this summer, we can still deliver your new Dragonfly in time for your summer holidays - it will however soon be last call, so please do not hesitate to contact us - or your local dealer - if you dream of sailing Dragonfly this season.

Also, if you are already the owner of a Dragonfly, please check your boat to see if you will be needing new sails, lines, trampolines or spare parts of any kind - then contact us and we will make you a good spring offer.

Best regards
Team Dragonfly

Dragonfly Approved Used
Dragonfly owners are very loyal to our brand and we have therefore decided to actively go into the pre-owned market. This means that Quorning Boats trades in and resells pre-owned Dragonflys in sales of new boats.

When buying a Dragonfly Approved Used you are assured that your new, used boat is 100% checked and approved by Quorning Boats, and you will get a certificate to follow the boat that it is not only originally produced and delivered by Quorning Boats but that it has also been thoroughly checked, refitted and approved according to Dragonfly standards in connection with the re-sale. A Dragonfly Approved Used comes with a guarantee of six months.

DF 920 Extreme, hull no 163 is just now undergoing the check to become the first Dragonfly Approved Used and will be ready for re-sale next week. We believe that many more boats will follow in years to come.

Dragonfly Yacht Charter
We have just finished the building of a new Tri-Me – a DF 28 Touring – which is now ready for the second season of the Dragonfly Yacht Charter. This project has been a huge success and the charter boat is almost fully booked for the 2013-season (April is still available). We have therefore already now opened for bookings for the 2014-season.
This is a great way to try out Dragonfly sailing before buying you own – and the aim is to get as many new clients as possible sailing Dragonfly. We hope to see the Dragonfly charter concept in other countries also in near future.

Open House Weekend
The last weekend in May (25-26 May) we open our doors and invite Dragonfly enthusiasts to come see the yard, hear the story of Quorning Boats and see some of the boats in production. It is also possible to sign up for a test sail on the DF 28 or the new DF 32.

We look forward to making new acquaintances who want to experience the thrill of trimaran sailing and hopefully one day make their dream come true.

Please just drop by to see the facilities – send us an email to book a sail on one of the Dragonflyes.

Dragonfly Get-Together in France
On 9-10 May all kinds of Dragonflys – DF 800, DF 1000, DF 920, 12m, DF 28 and DF 35 – will meet in Lorient at a Dragonfly get-together arranged by our French dealer, Multi Sailing. And you are also invited!

If you are located too far away to bring your own boat, you may join as crew on participating boats. Also prospects are welcome – on the last afternoon it will be possible to go sailing onboard a participating boat after registration with Multi Sailing.

On the program is one night at the Gelnan archipelago with BBQ on the beach as well as the possibility to dine together at a nearby restaurant. And of course to have a chat with Jens Quorning who will be there for some of the program.

Please contact Multi Sailing to register for this special Dragonfly event.
