Motorboat & Yachting - - Southampton Boat Show Preview -

Few boats will have a show­piece to ri­val the 460. The aft bal­conies whir down to cre­ate by far the most spa­cious and ap­peal­ing cock­pit in the class. It’s a boat that rip­ples with clever think­ing, from the slid­ing side win­dows in the saloon that open the aft end up to the bril­liant fore­deck with slid­ing seat mod­ules and flip-up back­rests for ev­ery seat.

Im­por­tantly, none of th­ese things feel like a gim­mick, with all fea­tures gen­uinely adding to your en­joy­ment of the boat. Be­low decks there is a more for­mu­laic three-cabin lay­out with an par­tic­u­larly im­pres­sive full-beam master en­suite lo­cated amid­ships.

There are IPS and shaft­drive en­gine op­tions; with twin 550hp mo­tors on shafts we achieved 29 knots flat out on test. The £270,000 360 Fly will also make its UK de­but at the show.
