This new model inaugurates a complete new range which will soon represent 40% of the brand's turnover. The power catamaran that we discovered in Cannes features very clean lines and respects the brand’s design - it is still the Italian studio Garroni Design in charge. With a hull drawn by Philippe Briand and a drivetrain limited to twin 320 HP motors for a 20-ton laden displacement, there is a maximum boatspeed just shy of 20 knots. The living area includes a saloon, the galley and a helm station. The large forward cabin is a success. In the hulls, the cabins embedded deep between the central floor and the bottom of the nacelle are unprecedented on board powercats of this category. It remains to be tested in rough seas to note the behavior of the tunnel between the hulls, that has necessarily reduced bridgedeck clearance. The first tests are scheduled for late October in Spain, right after the Barcelona International Boat Show.
