The layout is 100% day charter, with an extra-large nacelle - completely open at the stern and towards the bow-rider thanks to a glass door, which can remain open in fair weather. Modular seating throughout, an off-center helm station to starboard and... that’s enough. Each hull is nonetheless fitted with a double berth, plenty of storage space and a heads compartment. The one-off composite construction by Chantier Hervé (no need to introduce them in La Rochelle!), these stripped-down layouts and the absence of a hydraulic platform ultimately translate into a displacement of just 11.5 tons. The twin FPT motors, each rated at 500 HP, have little trouble propelling the Sunmare at 30 knots. On board, the Sunmare’s excellent ability to more through the and careful attention to soundproofing are particularly noteworthy.

Maestro, as this boat has been named, will be operated by Croisière Exclusive out of Porto-Vecchio in Corsica for the 2024 season. Other Sunmare 50s could join it...
