We’ve just looked at powerboats up to 12 metres, fast and with more space (click here). Today we’re getting to the heart of the 12-metre segment, a size that is full of proposals not to be missed: here are 5 new 12-metre boats to discover!
The new flagship of the Key Largo range features outboards and swim platforms. The strong points? Big outboards, a modular deck and folding swim platforms: but that’s not all. New hull, sporty look and a triple outboard engine that reaches up to 1275 hp. Maximum speed? 55 knots. But the sea isn’t just about sailing, it’s also about anchoring and relaxing. So the boat is designed with a modular cockpit, convertible sofas and two electro-hydraulic folding swim platforms.
Below deck, the Sessa Marine Key Largo 40 is well lit by the panoramic side windows on the hull, giving great visibility and an enviable view, a real window on the sea.
LOA: 11.94 m – B.max 3.50 m – Draft: 0.90 m – Displacement: 6.300 kg – Cabins: 1 – Berth: 4 – Engine: max 1275 HP / 895 Kw outboard – Max speed: 55 kn –INFO: www.sessamarine.com

Small luxury explorer like you’ve probably never seen before. The sleek lines of the superstructure see significant use of glass. The hull is seamless from bow to stern and is the result of three years of design and testing. The result? A 12-metre designed to hold the sea, sail a lot and consume little. It’s not a fast boat, as she can only top out at around 22 knots, but the hull of the Silverfin is very thin and elongated with the advantage of smoother sailing than a normal planing boat. The Silverfin has a range of 400 nautical miles at cruising speeds of between 12 and 15 knots.
LOA: 11.99 m – B.max 3.30 m – Draft: 0.90 m – Engine: VOLVO PENTA D3-220/ D4-230 – Bow Thruster: Side Power 6kW – Cruising speed: 11-14 knots – Range at cruising speed: over 400 miles – INFO: buehler-turbocraft.com

Even the Bertram fisherman gets outboards. The new Bertram Center Console boats will be equipped exclusively with Mercury Marine outboard engines, thanks to an exclusive technical and commercial partnership.
When you need a fast boat for quick fishing trips with live bait, the Center Console comes into play. The Bertram 39 CC is a boat with a deep-V hull. The yard has opted for a boat that is wider and heavier than almost any other to ensure maximum stability even on the toughest of fishing trips. The Bertram 39 has a fuel capacity of almost 1,900 litres, two live bait tanks of almost 160 litres each.

Elegant and stylish, the new 409 Valor is a luxury cabin cruiser. From a cabin with a double bed and en-suite bathroom with shower cubicle to the forward cabin which easily converts into a large double berth. Comfort, therefore, for cruising, combined with the best technology and construction techniques that offer optimal navigation. A boat designed for those who love to dive in the middle of the sea and be in direct contact with the sea. For convivial moments on board there is seating with comfortable customised seats and a bar. For sports fishermen there is all the necessary storage space, rod holders and tanks.
LOA: 40’ 0” – B.max 11’ 1” – Fuel Capacity 438 Gallons – Water 50 Gallons – INFO: www.intrepidpowerboats.com

A boat that encompasses two different approaches to leisure sailing on board. Pursuit S378 for cruising. Among the many innovations on this boat, the solution adopted to configure the cockpit into a social area is certainly striking. At the touch of a button, the settee behind the helm station folds away to provide more space for on-board recreation.
Pursuit S378 for fishing. Her vocation as a boat designed for fishing in the USA remains unchanged and she is therefore superbly equipped. There is no shortage of bait tanks and all the equipment needed to make it the ideal vessel for those practising this type of activity. In the central area, removing the “relaxation area” you have a really large cockpit with all the essentials for fishing.
LOA: 12.32 m – B.max 3.66 m – Draft (motors up): 0.79 m – Fuel Capacity: 1.616 l – Engine: max 1.275 HP – INFO: www.pursuitboats.com
