In the extremities, two sun pads with the stern one convertible into a small sofa thanks to a reclining backrest. The excellent quality of finishes combined with high-level upholstery contributes to making the overall view considerably finer. A T-Top is offered as an option. Aft, the boarding platform can be enjoyed by passengers despite the presence of the outboard and fitted with a telescopic stainless steel bathing ladder inclined at 45 degrees to allow a more comfortable ascent. Even more interesting is the geometry of the swallowtail hull: it stretches over the engine sides (it can install from 40 to 175 horsepower) while improving the efficiency of waterlines and delivering a stable gliding speed of 4 knots. Easy to handle and safe in maneuvers, the model we tested touched a top speed of 33 knots and a cruising one of 17 knots.
