The central console makes it easy to move about safely; its design brings to mind an elegant high-tech item of furniture, without overdoing the dynamic look, which is inappropriate for this type of product. The presence of a large central sundeck at the stern permits full enjoyment of the convenient full-width swim platform.
On the SQ240i, the spirit of the Capoforte models is enhanced by a combination of colours, which evoke elegance and lightness, starting from the Chalk White bottom. The choice of colours, with the radiance and clarity of bright hues and electric blue lines, brings to mind the explosive energy of electricity. It also hints at the deep integration with the water element.
The model on display at Boot 2023 has a Molabo ISCAD V50 electric motor, a 50kW straight-shaft inboard motor, which weighs only 45 kg. Its low voltage components ensure the motor’s high performance and efficient use of the battery, thanks also to the development of the synergy between the controller interface and the motor itself.
ISCAD combines motor and controller in one unit. This solution is easily integrated on board, reducing wiring and the space required for installation. Integration and maintenance are easy because no high voltage safety measures are required. Low-voltage (48V) components therefore efficiently use the battery’s energy, achieving a measured system efficiency of over 95% in optimum operating conditions.
Yamaha HARMO is the second available motor
Like the first model produced and previewed at the Genoa Boat Show 2022, the Capoforte SQ240i has been designed to house the 3.7kW HARMO Yamaha outboard propulsion system, which is equipped with rim-drive technology for particularly efficient electric propulsion, when compared with a propeller of the same size. It is also a propulsion system that guarantees extremely easy manoeuvring, even in limited space.
