Extraordinarily high-performance, Dromeas D28 SUV is ax excellent “all inclusive” option in the multi-function powerboat segment. Not surprisingly the adventure boats market is experiencing a broad moment of success, thanks also to designs based on a convincing Scandinavian imprint that guarantees not only sleek designs, but also high-performance units and excellent seaworthiness. And this would seem to be the case with the 28-footer signed Dromeas Yachts.

Dromeas D28 SUV – Exterior Design

Sharp, military-inspired lines. From the hull to the closed bridge, the boat has an appearance that does not conceal its performance characteristics. A double stepped hull almost accompanies the foredeck, and just above, on deck, are a bow sundeck and two seats. Handrails accompany the guests from stern to bow along the bulwarks, providing support and safety while underway.

At the stern, a double sofa accommodates the cockpit, and behind it, depending on the configuration, a rollbar, or directly the outboard engine. Amidships, on the other hand, is the enclosed helm station, with integrated steering and ample seating space for all, a solution adopted to maximize comfort in adverse marine conditions, but also for overall safety. Among the many configuration options, an external kitchen cabinet is available.

Just on the bridge, sheltered from any rain or weather of any kind, four seats divide the space. A double aft sofa converts into an extra berth, and a pair of seats facing the helm station. To the left, is access to the sleeping zone below deck. A cabin designed to maximize space offers the possibility of extending the exits by providing a double bed and a separate toilet.
