The surprising thing about the Neo is just how big it feels. The Open model may look like a normal sportsboat but it’s a full-sized 36ft sportscruiser that just happens to have an open cockpit and bow. In fact, it is one of three distinct models, all of which were at the show. They are all outboard powered, but there the similarities end.
The Coupé model with its fully enclosed wheelhouse, covered foredeck and extended hydraulic bathing platform felt like a different boat to the Open. Instead of an outdoor island galley and large dinette, it has an indoor galley and two separate seating areas that link when the patio doors have been pushed aside. Thanks to the raised sunpad on the foredeck it also benefits from a larger cabin below with a double bed rather than a convertible dinette.
All versions have three forward-facing helm seats and a transom bench with a drop down backrest to make a sunpad, while the fit and finish is a step above what we’re used to from Greenline, while still having keen pricing.
