After the debut of Next 370 SH here’s the smaller 290. It will be launched during Geona boat how, where it will be also available for sea trials.
The could have simply apply the same solutions of Next 370 on a smaller scale, but Ranieri International decided to go further and give this boat a well-defined personality.
The layout of the Ranieri International Next 290 SH features a large bow sun bed, which can also be used as a chaise longue with cushions extending over the center console volume. The bow pulpit facilitates access from the front and becomes a good diving board, while the anchor windlass with its locker is completely hidden from sight (and feet…) beneath the end of the solarium. The look of the dark cushions is cool, but we can’t say the same of its temperature under the summer sun…
The cockpit is reached by two passageways sporting a high guard-rail and the windshield frame which works as a handrail.
The dashboard is one of the characterizing features of the boat, thanks to an excellent design and the luxurious feeling given by the quilted elements supporting the instruments. The center cabinet behind the seats includes hob and sink, and the refrigerator hidden by the two wooden doors. On the stern, the dinette features a L-shaped sofa with a second retractable element to port. Engines are outboard only, single or twin, from a minimum of 350 HP to a maximum of 600. The boat in the photos features the new Suzuki DF350A, which we analyzed in a recent article.
Belowdecks the space is used in the best possible ways, combining smart solutions to nice finishing and noble materials. A dinette to bow converts into a double bed with a sliding door to give some privacy. The central mess allows the installation of a kitchenette and offers a good number of lockers, while a second double berth is located beneath the center cockpit.
