A boat that truly represents the uniqueness and interprets the individuality of each ship owner thanks to its wide customisation options and the choice of innovative and eco-friendly materials, such as Oleomalta by Oltremateria, used for both interior and exterior surfaces. It will be available in an open or T-Top version. Moreover, the motorization offers both sterndrive and outboard engines.

The multifunctional platform, created in collaboration with Besenzoni, features a large fixed section and three additional steps that can be moved up or down.

Among the distinctive features of the new model is the Cosmo multifunctional platform, designed in collaboration with Besenzoni. It features a large fixed portion and three additional steps that can be moved up or down to ensure wide elevation, ease guests’ descent onto the dock, and ensure comfortable access into the water for a playful swim in the sea.

The interiors have a dual layout with a shipowners’ cabin in the bow and a cabin with twin beds in the stern, or forward dinette with a C-shaped sofa and central table, which can be converted into a double bed if necessary, and a cabin with a French bed in the stern and large storage unit.
