An inflatable boat from Lomac, the Lo Manto family’s Milan-based boatyard, which was exhibited at this year’s boot Düsseldorf boat show, has recorded a top speed of over 60 knots. This on-the-water trial demonstrated the synergy between the design and construction qualities of the Gran Turismo 12.0 and the power unleashed by the brand-new 350hp Mercury Verado V10 engines.
Paolo Lo Manto, Sales Manager at the Lombardy yard, commented: ‘This landmark result shows not only our boats’ constant innovation and evolution for over 60 years, but also the seaworthiness of the hulls and their geometries, designed to exploit the full potential of the latest-generation engines, as in the case of the new Mercury Verado V10s.’
The Gran Turismo 12.0’s design and hull lines are by Italian designer Federico Fiorentino, whose long experience in the fields of luxury and racing yachts, together with the experience of Lomac’s in-house engineering team in the design of high-performance hulls, has produced an inflatable boat with a dual identity: comfortable when cruising and a racer when planing.
