The genesis of this small powercat is an interesting one, as it’s an evolution of a utility model towards leisure boating. Robustness, hardiness, and practicality are still very much in evidence aboard this model from the Adventure range, but specific layouts allow boaters to take full advantage of it... We got the chance to discover this concept in more detail at the last La Rochelle Boat Show, where the Cheetah Adventure 720 was presented.

The spot doesn’t have all-weather shelter and it is precisely because rollers often gatecrash the party that the Cheetahs imposed and perpetuated real sailors’ DNA from the start.
