In the beginning of October, a few days after the Boat Show of Genoa, the first official presentation of the new Suzuki DF 350A outboard engine took place in Spain, at the Barcelona Boat Show, where we had the opportunity to test the Tempest 38΄ on which two Suzuki DF 350A engines were mounted.
Joker Boat Clubman 35 is a high level flagship that exceeds ten meters in length. It is manufactured with high quality materials, while for its hull the «Vacuum Infusion» technique is applied, ensuring maximum durability reducing its weight at the same time.
Marlin 282 EFB is a high quality Rib and the result of a new project, still quite similar to the 274 FB. The deck is sleek and its ergonomy at high levels. The console can accommodate a bathroom while the bow and aft sundeck can be extended even further.
It is a model that deserves the title of "Gran Turismo" because it is capable of traveling many miles at high speeds with absolute comfort. By raising the rpm and trimming out it turns into a sporty and fast rigid inflatable boat. It is a high quality product from each point of view, from the construction to finishing.
When a smaller rib’s owner goes up to a 8-9 meter category, his demands are usually clear: he is looking for a rib that will be able to travel comfortably at 4-5bf and will provide plenty of storage spaces as well as comfortable fore and aft sunbathing areas.
«Our bow was cleaving the glassy surface of the sea, while we were enjoying our morning coffee sitting comfortably behind the console, snuffing ravenously the aroma of the sea and all the senses the fresh air.
It was an adrenaline ride!
Our speeds reached over 50 knots, still it’s not the top speed that impressed me as much as the feeling of power, and the incredibly explosive accelerations when 700 horses were left free to ride at full speed turning the dual props through the wave crests.
