Premiere 28

An elegant day boat from Italy

What they say
“The boat is a day cruiser and bears the same characteristics as the whole of the Premiere range – a polyvalent bottom capable of navigating in displacement and planing modes.”

What we say
We featured Premiere’s smart 49ft lobster boat last year. Now the small but well-regarded Italian yard have produced this 28ft day craft.

Cruising speed is around 20 knots but full whack is a toupé-tugging 42 knots, at which speed the deep-vee hull should keep your swimming trunks and guests’ bikinis dry in any Naples chop.

Like any self-respecting Med machine, it comes with 10mm teak in all the right places and you can choose the colour of the hull and cushions.

Inside there is a ‘dressing cabin’ with electric WC and basin. Lazy afternoons are well catered for by the forward sunpad/sofa with convertible table, as well as an aft sunpad/sofa, too.

For those that like the style but want more room, Premiere also have a 43 in their range.
