There’s only one place in the world where you’ll never get a speeding ticket: the Sea Highway! And what are the engines (nowadays also environmentally friendly and fuel efficient) that give you the strongest sensations? Outboard engines, no doubt about it!
But there’s more. Today, the most “glamorous” boats are also those that mount outboards on the stern, even those up to 15 meters long with two or three outboard motors.
To help you understand the reality of the outboard phenomenon even on boats of significant size, we went on the hunt for these boats at the Milano Yachting Week – The digital boat show.
We propose five of various types, but all fast, from 10 to 15 meters with powers from 500 to 1300 horses, with two or three outboard motors. Enjoy your visit.
Outboard boats from 10 to 15 meters
Sacs Rebel 47
Son of the Sacs Rebel 47 Open Inboard that uses inboard engines, the new 47 Outboard immediately looks good with three Yamaha mega outboards of 425 hp each at the stern, which push it to a maximum speed of 50 knots.
Not only the performance is the strong point of this superib, the Sacs Rebel 47 Open Outboard has an amount of space above and below deck once unthinkable. We suggest you to look at the photo gallery now.
Beneteau Antares 11
In Italy without a license plate with two 300 hp outboards. On the brand new Antares 11 and 11 Fly (new 2021) 9.90 meters of hull length (in Italy without registration) were enough to create a boat that is a small superyacht with a cockpit that opens (yes you read that right!), an upper cabin with kitchen, driven by two 300 hp outboards and with five beds in two cabins. And in the fly version a “second floor” where you can pilot, lie down, eat, relax as in a private terrace. Beneteau Antares 11 and 11 Fly are boats that guarantee optimal habitability.
Beneteau Gran Turismo 36
Beneteau Gran Turismo 36 (11.56 meters) with two 350-horsepower outboards is the sporty boat for year-round living. Push a button and the roof opens to shelter the steering position and the cockpit. If you want, you can also choose the more powerful version, with two 350-horsepower outboards. But when you’re in the roadstead after the bath you sit around a table for eight people and in front of you is the equipped kitchen. As an interior, though, it doesn’t disappoint. Go down to the sleeping area with two double cabins, a great bathroom, another kitchen with a nice dinette. In short, the Gran Turismo 36 by Beneteau is the ideal boat for those who want to live the boat always, all year round.
Pardo 38 by Pardo Yachts (11.90 meters) with three 350-horsepower outboards. That is when class is not water. The Pardo 38 is the symbol of the open boat (but below deck there is one or two cabins with bathroom) walkaround, that is the boat where on deck you walk on a single plane, from bow to stern.
Plenty of space on the Pardo 38 for outdoor life, but sheltered by a T-Top (an elegant roof) in carbon fiber that covers from the helm station to the dining area (with a table around six comfortable seats), with the possibility of extending the cover towards the stern with a bimini. Excellent performance with three outboards up to 350 each and over 50 knots of top speed.
Tecnorib Pirelli 42, two or three outboards for a total of 900 hp
And now let’s move on to the alternative, the Tecnorib Pirelli 42 inflatable boat. We’ll give you some previews of what you’ll find, virtually climbing aboard the boat. The deck is like that of a yacht, with a large bow sundeck offers comfort and safety, while the cockpit is equipped according to the owner’s requests and can accommodate up to 14 guests.
Going down below deck, in spite of the 13 meters of dinghy and a tapered profile, the internal open space cabin is high and voluminous. The strong point is the motorization that has the outboard option where you can install two or three engines for a total of 700 to 900 HP. This dinghy is loaded with accessories to provide the boat, as well as customization choices.
