Powerful, aggressive and driving…safe! The Strider 11 ABT Sport Master from Sacs in a limited edition convinced us in our on-board test. But let’s go with order. In Marina di Varazze, Liguria, the weather conditions that welcomed us were excellent, with flat sea that allowed us to test the full potential of this rib.

As soon as we got on board, in the 11 meters we immediately noticed the simplicity of the lines and the racing look that also comes from the collaboration with the German car tuning company ABT. Maximum speed of 50 thanks to the two engines Mercury Diesel 4.2 “V8” TDI 370 hp each.

Limited edition

The comfort is generous thanks to two large sundecks, one at the bow and one at the stern, a large platform and an external kitchenette aft of the control seat. The interiors have been designed with attention to detail, both in the choice of materials and in their workmanship. Being an 11-metre inflatable boat, the spaces are not enormous, but they are well exploited. What is it like in navigation?

The hull of this dinghy is made to run. Stable and soft on the wave, it gives the pilot the feeling of being able to do whatever he wants. Entering the turn at forty-five knots, the Strider 11 rests on the inner tube and remains in control as if it were on a rail. The cockpit is attractive in design and comfortable in navigation. All data is legible and the controls are beginner-proof.

The engines? Roaring

The two Mercury Diesel 4.2 “V8” TDI engines of 370 hp each are have after the “cure” ABT develop over 800hp power and allow this inflatable boat a really impressive acceleration. The power and the adrenaline-filled feeling that the vehicle transmits are really intense, but also the consumption data. At maximum speed, around 4000 rpm, the total consumption of the two engines is only 150 l/h.

If you want one, hurry up: only 10 examples will be made!
