Marino APB 27 Tender

Every other year Finland’s island-strewn Archipelago plays host to the country’s latest boat designs

Marino wowed us with its left-field cruiser a few years ago. With novel features, such as an aft bulkhead that slid below the cockpit floor at the push of a button, it was futuristic and slightly mad.


Now it has lopped the top off it completely, fitted it with a high carbon-fibre-look windscreen frame and a massive pantograph wiper, slotted a neat two-berth cuddy under the walkaround deck and installed a minimalist 2+2 centre cockpit. Of course, the trademark clever touches are still there.


Top Speed: 36 knots
Beam: 26ft 11in (8.2m)
