Here comes a large and glamorous sport boat, moving on another step on the paths of innovation and design.
When in 2007 the first 62S came to market, many pointed her as one of the best boats in her category. After 5 years, a smart restyling takes the boat to new levels. The name, 62S Italia, pays tribute to the 150th Anniversary of the unification of the Country, but also underlines the pride of being a real ‘Made in Italy’ ambassador.
Once aboard, the idea is developed via a classy and elegant atmosphere, both in the main salon and in the three cabins.
The owner’s suite is located amid-ship, using all the beam, and takes almost half of the deck’s size. Moving upfront, the port side hosts the third cabin with twin beds, while the VIP suite is located to the bow. On the starboard, the room is for a big C-shaped galley.
During the test (you can read the full report on September 2013 issue of BoatMag) we reached 2,350 rpm and 36.6 knots, just shy of the 37 declared by the yard, but we didn’t touch the trim tabs. Fuel consumption is acceptable in particular at cruising speed, around 2,000 rpm and 32 knots. The minimum planing speed is at 1,100 rpm and 11.8 knots without trim tab adjustment, but with a touch of the latter you can slow down to 1,000 revs and 10,7 knots.
