The boat features various distinct design and development areas: The hull, derived from the ultra-modern Volvo 70’ features a reduced maximum beam, medium/light displacement and a high stability ratio as well as fine lines at the bow to guarantee a more comfortable passage over the waves and total sailing comfort. The cutting-edge stern sections of the hull, complete with “planing edge,” increase the dynamic length at the water line, directional stability and performance, including from the engine, which reaches a cruising speed of 11 knots. Interiors: the layout has been completely transformed to create roomier surroundings than normally found as standard on a craft of this size, thanks to the repositioning of the service areas and dinette:
• the stern cabins have had the bathrooms moved to the far end of the stern and this has made it possible to increase the entrance and living space in the cabins by a good deal, including access to the sides of the beds for their full length and to have much more room to move;
• the location of the bathrooms in the stern has also reduced noise, increased privacy and created a partition area between the cabin and the stern peak, where the machinery, such as the air conditioning and generator, is located, while putting the bathroom at the foot of the bed instead of near the head end as normally occurs;
• the dinette has been raised in the style of the modern “raised saloons” and allows full visibility outside when standing and while sitting, exterior visibility is guaranteed by the glass panels at the sides of the hull. The dinette has also been placed close to the entrance to create a whole interior/exterior out of the living space;
• the galley has been moved fore of the dinette, in a lowered setting to clearly delineate the independent service role of this area while still leaving it in an open space in the saloon. It has been extended over two sides with a central console and is perfectly symmetrical, like the most modern of kitchens, making it practical to use even when the boat is listing on either side.
