This 6.50-meter dinghy has not remained the same over the years, but has undergone changes to adapt to changing needs. Today the arrival of a new version is official: the new Clubman 22 Plus from Joker Boat. This new model brings even more space on board with two large sunbathing areas fore and aft. Designed as an inflatable boat for the family to go swimming, in 7 meters it provides plenty of space to give all guests on board maximum comfort.

Marlin 40 | 12.05 m

This dinghy with unmistakably Marlin lines confirms the path taken by Marlin, as already demonstrated with 24 SR and X. The cruising dinghy look, with sundecks both fore and aft, wetbar and aft platform is matched by solutions that give maximum safety to the occupants. The cockpit is on one level, with no steps, and the tubular, packed with 1600 dtex fabric, thanks to the classic Marlin line that is spread over two levels, creates wraparound and protective bulkheads. The hull, designed with 2 steps, has a very deep V to ensure comfort and seaworthiness, is capable of accommodating triple engines with power up to 1200 hp total.

Lomac GranTurismo Cruiser 12.5 – 11.0 | 12.5 m – 11.0 m

The goal of these two new models is to combine the performance characteristic of inflatable boats and the habitability of cruisers suitable for weekend or short cruises. Therefore, in addition to the deck plan, the interior of the boat was also carefully developed where there is a cabin, bathroom and storage areas. The new GranTurismo 12.5 and 11.0 are precisely named Cruiser and are the result of all the development work done on the Lomac GranTurismo 12. In terms of hull lines, the yard’s experience means that lines have been developed that are suitable for handling triple and dual motorization.
