“The success of PIRELLI 42 has far exceeded our expectations. After the official presentation of the scale model in Portofino several months ago we were contacted by numerous owners. Even before its launch and official debut we have allocated 90% of this year production. Then at boot, our walkaround continued to attract a surprising level of approval and interest, from both the public and the media, as was confirmed by the sizeable attendance at the official presentation”. These were the comments of an enthusiastic Gianni De Bonis, TecnoRib Managing Director, after the launch of the new model.
His words were echoed by Ted Mannerfelt, CEO and Design Director of the Swedish firm of the same name that designed the sophisticated but highly sporty styling: “When designing PIRELLI 42 I tried to work consistently with the design codes of previous Pirelli boats, to make this boat stand out, enriching its sporty spirit with clean, balanced and elegant lines that give the design an evergreen appeal. We also had a special focus on the areas set aside for relaxation. The boat is easy to drive and can deliver remarkable performance”.
The new model is 13.10 meters long, with a beam of 4.1 meters, and can be fitted with inbor or ourboard engines, diesel and petrol with a range of power ratings, up to a maximum speed of about 45 knots to meet the needs of a broad range of owners, including those looking for high speed performance.
PIRELLI 42 is the first model in a new range targeted at owners in search of the perfect balance between elegance and adrenaline, and the shipyard will soon be launching a larger version too.
