After the success of 370 and a good debut for 290, it’s time for Ranieri International Next 240 SH: same style in 8 meters.
The launch is at Nautique International de Paris 2017 (2-10 December), and does want to make a splash. It should happen, considering the success in terms of sales of the large Next 370 and the warm welcome received by Next 290. Take one and half meters off, keep the same style, a corporate identity for the manufacturer, and here you have Ranieri International Next 240 SH.
Ranieri International Next 240 SH: almost 8 meters
Designed for single or twin outboard motor, the Ranieri International Next 240 SH makes the most of the stylistic features of the two siblings and reinterprets them in a smaller size which, we are sure, will allow many boaters to approach the Next range with a more affordable budget. Not only for the lower cost of the boat, but also because a less powerful engine means good savings on that front.
From the first renderings you can already reckon the design choices of Ranieri International Next 240 SH: a well-organized cockpit, a large sundeck and a cozy cabin with separate toilet. On such a size, a good help came from the experience gained by the yard with the previous models of the Atlantis series, which were among the bestsellers in their market segment. The aft dinette quickly transforms into a solarium while, thanks to the retractable bench on the side, the cockpit can be completely cleared for anglers’ needs. Two single seats have been provided for driver and co-driver and the dashboard comes straight by the larger models. In the cabin, the double bed can become an indoor dinette, while the toilet seems really complete. We are going to Paris to see with our very eyes and let you know.
