Four cylinders, 200 horsepower, and V6 performance without being so… It is the Suzuki DF200AP, the outboard of enterprises, and returns to the charge for the Mediterranean in Pink. In fact, Suzuki returns alongside New Jolly for a All-female raid, this time, from Amantea, Calabria, to the Genoa 2022 International Boat Show Dockyard.

Mediterranean in Pink: the new Suzuki / New Jolly venture

After the Palermo – Los Angeles feat by dinghy, accomplished by Sergio Davì, and the European Raid of the Milan Dinghy Club, a Suzuki-powered Rib Prince 22 will then face Italian waters. Scheduled to depart on September 6, 2022, and arrival in the Ligurian capital just in time for the opening of the boat show, on September 22, 2022.

The Raid: premises, dates and stages

Suzuki and New Jolly return to renew their partnership, and they seize precisely the Genovese event to conclude yet another adventure. After the great success of navigator Sergio Davì’s crossing (over 10,00 nautical miles total), the duo will bring Genoa that same NJ Prince 22 that recently concluded the European Raid. And if the thing itself was not interesting enough on its own, it will do so in a big way: departing from Calabria (Amantea) this September 6, arriving at the Salon after a succession of stops, and guests.

Amantea; Marina di Camerota; Bay of Naples; Latina Foce Sisto; Giglio Porto; Piombino; Bocca di Magra; Varazze; and finally, Genoa. These are the stages, during which, a succession of female crews will run from place to place, meeting and welcoming various guests from time to time. A race against time, to arrive on time for the Boat Show opening. Here, to welcome the crews, we will also find Sergio Davì , icon of raids aboard Suzuki-powered New Jolly inflatable boats.

From the arrival onward inside the show, the NJ Prince 22 RIB powered by the DF200AP outboard will remain on display at the Suzuki Pavilion, available for sea trials with the public. And for a Grand Finale in full style, it will always be Sergio Davì to award the crews on September 25 at 12 noon at the Suzuki Pavilion.

Inflatable boat and outboard: the Specifications

First, propulsion. The Suzuki DF200AP outboard, as mentioned earlier, is basically an extremely high-performance inline four-cylinder, so much so that it offers performance comparable to that of a V6. But it offers, compared to this, a significant advantage in terms of size and from weight. At 225 kg, it is in fact the lightest 200 HP outboard on the market today, weighing 12 percent less than V6 models of equal power. In more specific terms, with its 867 cc displacement, it can be regarded as a true ‘big block,’ having a higher compression ratio than the norm. A solution that provides high torque values already at low engine speeds, thus enabling lightning-fast acceleration. In addition, the installed Suzuki Lean Burn technology optimizes efficiency and achieves significantly lower emissions and fuel consumption.

As for the Dinghy on which the outboard will be installed, it is of course a New Jolly, and specifically, the NJ Prince 22, the same one with which the
European Raid.
At6.80 m long and 2.7 m wide, the Prince 22 features a large living area supported by a deep-V Hi-Power hull (25°) and provides excellent marine performance. Overall, a combination that has so far proven to be a winner, and one that we will finally get to see live at the 62nd Genoa International Boat Show.
