Extremely elegant and ultra-modern fast motor yacht. Light weight allows for small and economic engines, yet blistering performance,  space for a tender garage and a fantastic interior/exterior layout. A highly refined ‘Coupe Convertible’ sports car for the sea!

The concept behind the development of this boat was to bring the technological characteristics and design techniques from sail-powered and racing vessels to the world of motor-driven crafts. This includes the construction of the hull, the bulkheads and the structural systems, using grp composites with carbon reinforcements and vacuum lamination processes using epoxy resins.


Using these materials and this construction system is what makes the difference: “BWave” is a an extremely lightweight craft, which can reach a speed of up to 35 knots, even when using engines that are not excessively powerful, therefore, reducing consumption and noise levels. Among other advantages, a lightweight boat can plane under less power than a heavier one and therefore have a more pronounced “V”-shaped hull and stern, which in turn means, less impact on the waves and better sea keeping. It is a motor-driven boat for sailing in any sea conditions. It is also a craft on the cutting edge in terms of propulsion; it uses the Volvo IPS boat propulsion system and this means increased efficiency on the account of the azimuth thrusters, rotating prop stern drives. The boat can therefore turn on itself and move sideways without using a bow thruster.


This craft also has a computerized control system, the SCS, which makes sure that it is fully monitored by a computer when it comes to electrical equipment and navigation, communication and entertainment systems, all of which are controlled by monitor. The layouts, inside and out, are state of the art, for a new type of boat that is somewhere between an open and a hard top. It starts with the design for an open-top craft, but it also offers the comfort, shade and protection against the elements of a hard top. This is all thanks to a full-glass, opening roof, covering an area that is not actually inside or out, but both at the same time. The design emphasis is the great comfort on deck where besides the opening roof and side windows, there is a saloon, sundeck, concealed tender and enough room for water scooter and surfboards. The service areas are inside, below deck, and are the result of a top-level design project that has aimed to enhance comfort and practical use, all combined to reveal an elegant but sporting style. Under deck there are two large double cabins, a large well-equipped galley and two bathrooms with separated showers.


The interior layout is very specific, one aspect of this is a lack of dinette, which has been moved above deck been capable to open the side windows and hard top for a direct contact with the sea. The ultra-modern styling of the furnishings and the materials are highly reminiscent of the Vismara “sailing” style, with painted compound bulkheads and separate furnishings in teak.
