2021 brings another addition to the Touring range of Scanner Marine: the Scanner Envy 770 FB. It joins the version with sterndrive, and supports up to 400 horsepower. We’ve seen two versions: one with a Suzuki 350 and one with a Mercury 300.
The new Scanner Envy 770 FB shows the typical traits of the boatyard: not only style but also substance.
The cockpit is not directly surrounded by tubulars, but by fiberglass sides that make the boat express a feeling of comfort, safety and relaxation.
The teak floor (optional) is the final touch that makes it even more attractive. Also worth a note are the two widened steps on both sides, which make getting on board and on the dock easier.
From a practical point of view, the Envy 770 FB Scanner project (made by Montemitro Design like all the boats from the brand) is aimed at maximizing the usability of the cockpit. A full-beam aft sofa is served by a wet-bar behind the pilot’s seat, which in turn can be transformed into a leaning post; another sofa at the bow turns into a sundeck.
Compared to the inboard version, the Envy 770 FB loses some space on the swim platform, but the versatility of the cockpit helps to make up for it.
And, the two aforementioned side steps and the bow pulpit can perfectly work as dive platforms.
_The Envy 770 Scanner can install a maximum power of 400 hp, although the first two units use a Suzuki 350 and a Mercury 300 respectively.
To give an idea of the potential of this rib, the yard declares a reckoned top speed of 47 knots with the Mercury and 51 with the Suzuki (the former on a lake, the latter in the sea).
When we tested the Scanner Envy 770 with sterndrive and a Mercury 300 V8 inboard, we reached 42 knots with a cruise of 29.
