The Wellcraft 43 Portofino is an all-fiberglass express cruiser that rides a planing hull (14 degrees of deadrise) characterized by an ample14-foot, 6-inch beam that’s carried well aft. That, along with its high sides, gives this boat enough room for a full head that includes a stall shower— and a roomy, versatile bi-level cockpit.
The master cabin is forward, with shelf space and two hanging lockers. The enclosed head compartment is adjacent and to port. In this single-stateroom layout the galley/dinette area in the saloon is to starboard, abaft the cabin. The couch converts to a berth.
The full galley is equipped with a two-burner stove, refrigerator, and shelf and counter space for storage and additional galley equipment.
On deck, the steering station is to starboard on the bridge deck, with a large L-shaped lounge to port. There’s also room for a mini galley abaft the helm. The cockpit, down two steps, opens through a transom door to an integral swim platform/sportdeck. The twin engines are accessible below the bridge deck. A good-selling boat during her decade-long production years, the 43 Portofino was one of the largest production express cruisers on the market when she came out in the late 1980s. With her bold Euro-style appearance and spacious accommodations, the Portofino conveyed an aura of comfort and luxury seldom seen in earlier express boats.
She was constructed on a low-dead rise hull and prop pockets were used to move the engines as far aft as possible.
Engine access is excellent—the hatch in the bridge deck reveals a ladder that leads down between the engines.
