Boats with Italian flair [IDX15D1]

23 February 2015

Italian fast-boat builder Novamarine (Italian Pavilion, Stand C-001) is making a splash at NAVDEX with its Professional line of high-speed boats for the military, security and commercial user communities.

Based in Olbia, Sardinia, where it operates out of SNO Yachts’ facilities, Novamarine has combined its extensive design expertise with the latest materials and manufacturing techniques. For example, the Professional line is constructed with special rigid tubes manufactured in a specific shock-resistant, pierce-proof foam, thereby offering greater safety and reducing internal impedences through its semi-circular shape.

The Professional range comprises four different sized boats: the 100 (10m length); the 120 (12m); the 140 cabin jet (14m); and the 220 cabin jet (22m). The Professional 100 and 120 series can be configured with outboard (FB variant) or inboard (EFB) engines.

Open deck and cabin options (EFB variants) are also available.

Novamarine has already achieved regional success, being contracted in 2014 to provide vessels for the Qatar Coast Guard.
