From September 21 to 26, Lomac will be welcoming customers, visitors and journalists to two exhibition spaces covering almost 200 square metres in the event’s maxi RIB area and outdoors on pier H. The atmosphere will be pointedly ‘premium’, not least because on show will be a number of one-off items bydesign brand Riva1920 and cuvées offered by Bèlon du Bèlon from Franciacorta.
On show at the event will be the new GranTurismo 14.0 X and Turismo 9.5, making their debut on the Italian market.
Features of the GranTurismo 14.0 X
This model has a completely new layout, with a generous cockpit and two side walkways that optimise onboard flows, guaranteeing comfort on board. The cockpit features a large circular table that seats 8 to 10 people and can be folded away when not in use, while in the stern there’s another wide sun pad.
The forward sun pad features generous dimensions and protection, while below deck there’s a spacious cabin with wood trim, a dinette top on the left, plenty of storage space and a bathroom with separate full-height shower.
The exterior styling and interior design are by Federico Fiorentino, as is the hull geometry, which was developed and validated using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) software to simulate cruising at all speeds and achieve efficiency in the water. The boat will be powered by the new XTO Yamaha outboards rated 450 hp each.
About the new Turismo 9.5
This model, like the smaller Turismo 7.0 – also on show but not in the water, with a 200 hp Yamaha outboard – features a sleek and sporty design that taps into heavy-duty military boats and offers versatility and plenty of space on board for guests.
The spacious aft area features a U-shaped dinette for 6/8 people that converts into a sun pad, ergonomic sport seating for the pilot and copilot with a fridge inside, and a forward sun pad that can also be converted into a dinette.
The helm console retains the style of the boat’s smaller sibling, but with its increased dimensions offers a more futuristic design. Under it is a bathroom compartment that can also be used as a changing room or to shelter in during bad weather. The boat is powered by two 300 hp Mercury outboards.
Other GranTurismo models at the boat show
The two Italian premieres will be on show alongside two more success stories in the GranTurismo range, the 10.5 (with two 300 hp Mercury outboards) and the 12.5 (with two XTO Yamaha 450 outboards).
Three of the boats on show feature the wrapping-art of DFactory, a company of the automotive world that uses film to decorate and protect vehicles of all types. It used special wraps to enhance the interiors of GranTurismo 12.5 and 14.0, as well as wrapping all the exterior fibre glass parts of the GranTurismo 14.0 and Turismo 9.5 in a special transparent and regenerative Paint Protection Film (PPF) that protects them from the harmful action of UV rays and therefore also from yellowing and wear.
An elegant exhibition area
This year Lomac has produced the brand’s exhibition areas in partnership with Riva1920, the northern Italian company that has been producing designed objects featuring craftsmanship for over a century. The Lomac terrace will also feature the “Molletta”, a two-metre bench with a sculpted design that taps into Pop Art’s classic oversize leitmotif.
Another collaboration at the Boat Show this year is with the Bèlon Du Bèlon winery, a vineyard of Franciacorta, whose products will be available for customers, visitors and journalists to enjoy during the event in Genoa.
Lomac has also signed up for Yamaha’s “Blue Date” initiative dedicated to those coming to the world of boating for the first time, providing a Lomac Turismo 600 with a 40 hp Yamaha outboard for “first inflatable” test drives from a special pier.
Lomac will be at the Genoa Boat Show in the Maxi RIB / Yacht Area – Dock H and on the “Yamaha Blue Date” dock N (west side).
