Maguzzu – Mx 12 Grand Sport – 12 m

The MX 12 Grand Sport loves speed. Distinctive features includes a double-stepped hull and the possibility to install inboard, outboard or inboard/outboard engines. Construction is sophisticated and based on an extensive use of kevlar, carbon, expoxy resin and teak. Designed for day trips, she offers a lot of space on the deck and a convertible dinette with toilet below

Austin Parker 42 Walk Around – 12.90 m

Traditional Austin Parker’s style features are preserved but designer Fulvio De Simoni, who has already signed other projects for the same shipyard, has reinterpreted them in a completely new way. So, he has added a lateral entrance door, some seats in the bow, a large area/cockpit dedicated to conviviality, a tender garage and a central console. The goal is to attack overseas market, which is very sensitive to the charm of center-console models. Unchanged is, on the contrary, the hull, whose waterlines have been tested by the numerous 42-footers offered by the shipyard in different versions. Interesting and trendy is the outboard propulsion, to the benefit of more spacious interior volumes.

Evo WA MY18 – 13.12 m

The latest Evo Yachts’ creation is a more compact version of the convertible yacht that has impressed a large number of yachtsmen. The new model features a wide sun pad in the stern that can be shadowed by a T-top with stainless steel studs and marine breathable fabric. Appearance is engaging also thanks to the metallic bronze livery of the hull and the tobacco-and-lime green upholstery. Below deck, the second galley is fully equipped, the dinette is convertible into a double V-shaped cabin with bathroom. X-tension stern side walls are supplied as an option. Power comes from twin Volvo IPS 600 engines.

Moonride Rubabout 43 – 13,25 m

Built by Moonride and inheriting the experience of Leopoldo Rodriquez (the heir of the family that, since 1956, has marked much of the Italian recreational boating industry with brands like Navaltecnica, Baglietto and Morgan), the Runabout 43 stands out with a classic yet contemporary style. The basic concept is that of a luxury tender, with a narrow V-hull. The boat maintains the typical walkaround design but with an asymmetric layout: the starboard side-deck is on the same level of the toerail while, on the port side, it stands on the same level of the astern cockpit until the forward one, where is the dinner area while, in the stern, we find a large sunbathing platform. Below deck, the port side-deck gives instant access to the forward double cabin, which can turn into a dinette. Standard equipment is completed by a toilet. Interior style is custom and consistent with the classic exterior appearance. The shipyard has already announced an outboard version.

Fjord 44 Coupé – 13,45 m

The shipyard that has contributed to revitalise the medboats market launches the Fjord 44 Coupé, the first model equipped with a deck house that closes a part of the cockpit without compromising the overall layout. Thanks to the replacement of the large sun pad with a smaller sofa, this version is more elegant than the open version; however, comfort is significantly improved and the boat can be used in all seasons and under any weather conditions. The overall design

is less light and less sporty than that of the open version. Below deck, the layout is the same, with a double cabin and a bathroom.

Lomac – Granturismo –  13,65 m

The new flagship of the Italian shipyard combines the sporty performance of the Adrenalina line and the finishes of the GranTurismo range. This mega RIB can be fitted with two inboard engines, two or three outboards. The latter is a good option if you want to enjoy a wide bathing platform in the stern. Beautiful and streamlined, this boat features a windscreen which is designed as a natural extension of the hard top over the pilot station.
