The front cabin is spacious and the side cabin is perfect for children or for a guest. What is most striking about this small river yacht is the upper desk, which is enormous for the size of the boat. Such a well-equipped deck invites you to spend most of your time on the flybridge.

The boat's design is modern and gives the driver the feel of a small yacht.

The large windows lend a wonderful effect of brightness to the dining room, which we could define as panoramic, since when sitting at the dining table you can have a 360°-view.

The two cabins occupy the bow of the boat and share a spacious bathroom with shower.

The front cabin is intended for the captain and has a double bed, while the side cabin has beds that can also be configured as 2 singles.

The dining room and the kitchen are in the middle of the boat. The dining room sofa can be used as a makeshift bed if needed.

The galley is in line, on the right-hand side of the boat; the equipment consists of a hob, gas oven, sink and half-size refrigerator, as well as various drawers and all the crockery. The windows go around the entire room, giving it great brightness and panoramic views, and the large glass doors lead to the external stern deck, which extends over the water.

The exterior area at the stern can be used as a comfortable bench for reading a book or as an area for getting into the water. Steps lead to the flybridge, where the main driver's seat is located, with ample visibility all around.

The deck is equipped with a nice gas barbecue for grilling outdoors. There is a table and several sofas where you can sit down, plus two deck chairs for sunbathing. The whole flybridge is shaded by a large awning.

The deck is very large and spacious and will undoubtedly be the area of ​​the boat where most time is spent.

Propulsion is guaranteed by a diesel engine; the propeller transmission system is solid and reliable even when navigating in shallow water areas. During navigation, the engine recharges the batteries and produces hot water which can then be used for the shower or the kitchen.

When moored in a port, the boat can be connected to the electricity network using a cable supplied. You can connect your smartphone to the Wi-FI radio and by doing so you can listen to your own music inside.

The yacht is equipped with forward and aft side thrust propellers, which can be activated by a joystick located on the flybridge. This system assists the pilot with bringing the boat closer or further away from the mooring dock and is much very appreciated feature.

The unit is equipped with a satellite remote monitoring system, which allows us to ensure maximum assistance and serenity in navigation.

A cooling system is present on board, and is operated by domestic batteries. It will work as long as the batteries are charged. If the boat is connected to the dock charge, the system will run longer.

We suggest turning off the system if you are not on board or if it is not needed, as it cannot be left on constantly and will also drain the batteries.

In the cooler season you can also use a heating system on board, which uses diesel to produce heat, and which can be used without limitations both inside and outside the port.
