Very fast, robust and practical 13-meter runabout where form perfectly balances with multifunction, introducing the innovative “center cockpit” design to provide all the protection of a cockpit with the practicality and access of a walkaround. Those onboard can enjoy the feeling of being in the open air with the added security and comfort typical of a more enclosed yacht.
Pure, simple and magnificently seaworthy, suiting uses as diverse as family day boat, superyacht tender, resort shuttle, sailing yacht support vessel, thanks to the ability to change deck configurations and to the range of available accessories and features.
