Interesting proposition from a fledgling yard
What is it?:An unusual hardtop or cabrio coupé built in
Turkey and available with a wide range of engines, from a single 130hp D3 on a shaft to a pair of whopping 435hp IPS600s.
Worth seeing because:There’s nothing else quite like it on the market and it can fulfil every possible role from a gentle displacement river cruiser to a 40-knot gentleman’s express. Even the layout is unconventional, with a big cockpit and modest deck saloon leading to corridor-style galley and three cabins. We weren’t so sure about the GRP detailing, some of which was painted to look like wood at its debut in Düsseldorf.
