vanclaes boat trailer

The DAME-AWARD 2013 jury: ‘A strongly built boat trailer with a bold design, striking use of materials and distinctive branding, the Vanclaes offers something different in this sector. The Jury in particular appreciated the sturdy walkaround access platform to keep feet out of the water when launching or retrieving and the integrated waterproof lights avoiding the need for a separate trailer board’.

The brand new Vanclaes top quality Dutch boat trailer of the modern generation, extremely innovative and competitively priced, wins the bespoke DAME DESIGN-AWARD 2013 at the METS 2013 in Amsterdam.

Innovative boat trailer

In close cooperation with the Delft University of Technology (‘TU Delft’), Vanclaes has subjected the phenomenon of the ‘boat trailer’ to a scientific research and virtually reinvented it. Next to that, with the stainless steel loading system and other unique features, Vanclaes truly delivers a new high quality product with a better ease of use for the boat owner.

Thanks to the extensively applied modular construction method which uses a large number of patents as well as the application of modern technology during construction, such as CNC guided laser and water cutters, keep the production costs attractively low.

These noteworthy low production costs make it possible, in spite of the use of high-grade parts and materials such as electrolytic zinc application, KTL processing and powder coating, to offer the trailer at a very competitive price.

Thanks to its stylish design, the modern distinguished look & feel and its highly innovative and unique features, this VanClaes boat trailer has rightly drawn the attention of the Jury of the DAME Design Award METS 2013, which is underlined by winning the DAME-Award 2013.

European Dealers join the Commercial invention!

Vanclaes versus the conventional.

Vanclaes: “Transporting a boat on a trailer is not a novelty. However, the specially developed loading and unloading system, the by the DAME-AWARD Jury in particular appreciated ‘sturdy walkaround easy XS platform to keep feet out of the water when launching or retrieving and the integrated waterproof lights avoiding the need for a separate trailer board’, watertight disk brakes on watertight axles and hoist eyelets welded to the frame, are all innovations which make this trailer a truly new generation of boat trailer’.

Hence the motto ‘Vanclaes versus the conventional’.
