Silver Tiger DCz

Silver Tiger DCz is the smallest of the fiberglass models from Silver Boats, Z range. It is a compact but at the same time comfortable and functional day cruiser suitable for families and groups of friends. The hull was designed with Swedish Petestep technology. The design was carried out by the Norwegian design agency Eker Design AS. This boat has a forward cabin and space for a chemical toilet. The cockpit is well designed so that it is functional and comfortable. All counters, controls and chartplotter are easily operated whether you drive the boat seated or standing. Thanks to the driver’s seat in the open sea you can enjoy a great driving comfort both standing and sitting. The windscreen, thanks to its shape and the side windows that extend along the sides of the boat, offers ample shelter. Motorisation between 115 and 150 horsepower.

V Boats Voyager 700 Open

It is 7.13 metres long and can be powered by up to 250 horsepower. The interior design is spartan, but with all the essentials. The bow configuration is in bowrider style.

Quicksilver Activ 675

 Quicksilver Activ 675 , 6.48 meters long, is available both in the cruiser version, with a small cabin, and in the bowrider version, with the second forward cockpit. The water lines of the two models are identical, as is the proposed engine: Mercury outboard from a minimum of 115 hp to a maximum of 225 hp. We have tried with more interest the cruiser version, which in our opinion is more dedicated to use in the Mediterranean. The 675 Active Cruiser is a boat that hides a thousand uses, ideal for the family, to go swimming and perfect for those who want the first boat. (FIND TEST HERE)

Bayliner VR6

A bowrider that combines the BeamForward design of Bayliner, and the new concept of AftAdvantage, which increases the seating area of the cockpit by adding the bathing platform to the stern. This boat maximizes space both in outboards that in inboard layout. There is also a stern-facing seat, ideal for water sports, which, with the addition of a filling cushion, creates a comfortable U-lounge transforming the entire area into a sunbathing area.
