The fast cruisers have hulls with drawn lines. They are born to “bite” water and have pure lines. A type of boat that for many years has been the core of the production of many yards. Even today, they are the preferred choice of those who prefer functionality and essentiality to the evolution of design. But without forgetting the style that makes them unmistakable. All this, however, does not necessarily translate into spartan arrangements. In many fast cruisers there is no shortage of habitable environments, often elegant, to have comfortable spaces available to face even the longest cruises. Here are five models from 11.30 to 18.30 meters in length. Their debut date varies from the end of the 1980s, for the great classics, to the end of the 1980s and the first decade of the 2000s. A boon for those looking for a used fast cruiser.

Inside, it has two cabins, a dinette and a kitchen. The minimum power of the engines is 2×260 hp. Produced since the beginning of the 90’s, it is an extreme long-lived model.
