The upcoming European boat shows will mark the debut of a new special edition from the Capoforte shipyard.
After SX280i, presented at the 2022 Cannes Yachting Festival, the younger sister, SX200, will be wearing a dedicated, limited-edition outfit, ready to debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023 (12 to 17 September). Once again, Collezione will be the initiative’s distinctive name.
Three boats, identical but unique, will be dressed in captivating Grigio Gesso grey livery, extended to the hull and deck and combined with the classic and very elegant Cognac upholstery. It is a contrast capable of evoking an allure of sportiness and distinction, linked to the world of classic racing.
This identity is reinforced by the black numerals on a white circular background, which stand out on the sides: they are a tribute to the race numbers of the past, accompanied in this case by an exclusive name, which evokes prestigious locations that have always been linked to pleasure boating.
The first boat of the series will carry the number 10 and the name Côte d’Azur, the second, with the number 20, will be named after the Cinque Terre, and the third, number 30, will display on its side the name Bodensee, referring to Lake Constance, the picturesque borderland between the Alpine peaks and sports sailing.
“Capoforte, once again, embodies the brand’s mission: to launch boats that are compact, agile and versatile yet characterised by an immediately recognisable identity,” explains designer Christian Grande.
“The Capoforte style is classic and bold at the same time, made up of timeless lines but also of combinations and contrasts destined to amaze, convince and seduce the most charismatic owners.”
The deck layout is devoted to usability: two well-spaced rows of seats are arranged from the aft section to amidships, while the bow is surrounded by a comfortable sofa that can be converted into a sundeck. The two areas are defined by the wheelhouse and a versatile and minimal bar corner.
All three boats will be equipped with a single Yamaha outboard engine, a silent unit that offers brilliant performance combined with low emissions, also in line with the stringent regulations on river and lake navigation.
