Why Is It Different

Superb sailing response in any weather conditions
thanks to the design of its keel and the robustness of its structure.
Larger exterior spaces, greater interior heights and volumes
and optimal space use that is more functional that in other boats in its class.
Wider and more comfortable side walkways
with better access from all sides.
Large flybridge
with bucket pilot and co-pilot seats.
Superb solarium forward and a solarium aft with seating
Larger, more spacious and more comfortable cockpit
Larger bathing platform
with space for auxiliary craft stowage (using a crane) or for a hydraulic passerelle, with large locker (port to starboard) for stowing provisions and spare parts.
An innovative concept of practical functionality
resulting in generously proportioned, well-lit and perfectly optimised spaces that include a spacious dinette offering great visibility and sailing comfort for those on board, a fully equipped independent galley, and an owner�s cabin (double berth, bathroom, writing desk and armchair) and two guest cabins (double and twin, with a shared bathroom).
