Danish boatbuilder Rand has made a market out of combining Scandinavian design sensibilities with eco-awareness, offering its range of dayboats with both outboard and electric power options. The latest Rand to join the range is the Breeze 20 – a 20-footer that offers effortless cruising without compromising functionality, comfort or performance.
The Rand Breeze 20 is offered with a petrol outboard as an option but is also an excellent choice for electric propulsion thanks to its lightweight construction and hyper-efficient hull design. This provides benefits such as low running costs, minimal maintenance requirements, the silence of an electric engine, and the lack of intrusive and polluting exhaust fumes.
It offers an impressive 20 hours of power on a full battery, with a 4 knots average cruising speed and a 10 knots top speed. The 115 hp outboard version delivers a top speed of over 30 knots, which means it can serve equally well as a fast cruiser or as a watersports boat.
“We’re thrilled to introduce the Rand Breeze 20 to Australia and New Zealand,” says Peter Hrones, Managing Director of Eyachts who act as exclusive dealers for the region.
“With its high functionality, adaptable layout, and social experience-focused features, we’re confident this boat will provide a unique cruising experience like no other.”
At the heart of the RAND Breeze 20 is a clever layout centred around a picnic table that transforms into a sunbed, a reversible pilot backrest, massive storage space, an integrated fridge, and a hidden bimini top. These features make the Rand Breeze 20 highly adaptable to the needs of all boaters.
Designed for social boating, the Rand Breeze 20 can accommodate up to eight people. The main social hangout area is located in the bow, and the aft provides seating space for two, where the pilot backrest can be flipped to give the aft area more space.
The central section can easily be transformed into a large sunbed by lowering the picnic table, while the built-in swim ladder and towing mounts are part of the aft sun lounge, giving easy access for watersports and swimming.
As an added bonus, the Rand Breeze 20 can be trailered behind any car, making it easy to transport from boat ramp to boat ramp and opening up a wealth of interesting boating destinations. The Rand Breeze 20, says Eyachts, is the ideal electric boat for Australia and New Zealand.
