Askeladden C97

Our most functional and user-friendly boat to date. Nominated for European Power Boat of the Year 2024!

The C97 has been designed for Nordic boating, and the boat rapidly transforms from an open-top daycruiser to a cabin cruiser in just seconds. Just press a button to open or close the electric Soft Top, which combines with a simple and smart canopy to cover the aft area.


We have invested hour upon hour of design work and innovation to create our most functional and user-friendly boat in the history of Askeladden.

With our new concept, the Askeladden C97 has more larger spaces than normal daycruisers where boaters can soak up the sun. And if the weather should suddenly change or you are setting out on a rainy day, the covered space under the Soft Top is much more spacious than with a traditional pilothouse boat.

In other words, the C97 is the perfect hybrid between a pilothouse boat and a daycruiser, without compromising on any of the functionality and qualities you would expect from either type of boat.

With the Soft Top closed, the C97 can be enjoyed as a comfortable, spacious cabin cruiser. With it open, you have all the delights of a luxurious, large daycruiser.


Askeladden’s new C97 has a level of luxury and functionality you would expect from a larger boat, making life on the waters of the Nordic archipelago simple and comfortable for our customers. 

You are guaranteed to have a good night’s sleep in the new C97. The new model has two separate cabins with private berths for four persons. If you want to invite friends onboard, the seating area in the cockpit easily converts to an extra double bed for two more persons.

Below deck, the two cabins and bathroom have full standing room, including in the shower. A private bathroom with proper shower behind glass doors is a luxury you would not expect from a boat in this segment.

The C97 also has an impressive amount of storage space, and you have the option of having an extra fridge drawer fitted.

With so much space and functionality, this boat will inspire you to set off on long-stay trips.


The bow deck of the C97 has plenty of room for a large, comfortable sunlounger, and is easy to reach via the port sidewalk from the cabin. When the sun is out and the C97 is safely moored, there is plenty of room for three adults to relax on the lounger.


With the Askeladden C97, you can make the most of your days on the water without having to worry about the weather. The cockpit is large and spacious, and we have introduced several ingenious design features to enhance the feeling of space. The huge panorama sunroof slides open on the press of a button, so you can feel the wind in your hair and soak up the sun from aft to bow. With the Soft Top open, the C97 becomes a fully functional daycruiser, and this is only reinforced by the boat’s sporty performance on the water.

When the clouds start to gather, you can close the Soft Top and put up the aft canopy to completely close the cockpit. The aft canopy is also an innovative design and very simple to use. You just slide it quickly and simply into the side pillars for the hardtop. With the soft top closed and the canopy on, the boat is transformed into a fully functional pilothouse boat.


With the C97, our largest boat to date, boaters really can have the best of both worlds on the water. The new model, now ready for launch, is the result of our dedication to and passion for boat building, boating and the sea, combined with our years of experience.
