New Model: Aguti 20M

Aguti is a very Italian Latin sounding name, but this is a new German brand with capacity to build up to forty metres which sets sights on the high sphere of the market presenting its first 20M model. Designed by part yard owner Andreas Grieger, the Aguti 20M was built on Lake Constance in Germany taking fifty thousand hours to complete. For his first model which is a sixty five feet sport yacht Grieger went to traditional modern looks with a long teak covered flush fore deck saying classic big open yacht, a stern which reminds of speed boats of the early twentieth century, and a hard top integrating neatly with a traditional shaped curved wind screen. Apart from having a sliding movement the hard top of the 20M can also move vertical up down allowing fresh air to enter the cockpit and at the same time keeping shade. But the first Aguti model does not want to be special on looks alone and some functional equipment. The 20M wants to offer a unique product in the core, and this it does with the mahogany Kevlar construction, and a patented exhaust system which surpasses year 2014 regulations. The Aguti 20M also offers incredible all year round accommodation thanks to a patio door main deck, having a day galley, L-shaped settee, and central helm station. Down below we have a three double cabin lower deck plan, with owners suite to fore, C-shaped saloon, and a galley. Power for the 20M is twin MAN 1100hp which give a 32 knots top speed. Although more powerful engines and the tank tested hull shape do allow for speeds up to 50 knots.
