We climbed aboard the new Pirelli 42. A maxi-rib that reflects Pirelli’s style 100%: comfortable on deck, but most of all fun to steer.

Pirelli 42 by Tecnorib, licensee of the brand, is the latest innovation of the shipyard. This maxi-rib fits into the universe of large rib boats with its 13 meters and elegant appearance, favored by the use of teak on a “walk-around” deck layout. Large spaces, comfortable walkways both around the central stern sundeck and between the hardtop (open on the sides) and the bow.

Pirelli 42 Tecnorib: beautiful outside, a surprise inside

If the elegance of the external lines, the work of the Mannerfelt Design Team, can fascinate, getting on board the feeling is to be on a really well thought out rib boat. The deck is comfortable, elegant, and spacious and even in the bow, there is a living area with a sofa.

And to govern? Very funny and simple. A real gem for those who love the performance.
