New Model: Portofino 11 Fisherman

Italian boat builder Portofino continues to present variations to its 11 line series, presenting the new Fisherman model. The Portofino 11 was presented in 2008 with the Fly version, a year later was the turn for a Coupe model, and now in 2010 is next for the new Fisherman. Similar to its sisters in everything concerning the hull from shape to the IPS propulsion, and in the lower deck accommodation for four, the new Fisherman looks different when you see its topsides thanks to the lets go fishing Tuna tower. Apart from a second helm station the tower gives better visibility for locating the prey, outriggers, and extra places where to put your lines. The main deck now fully open on the sides and aft is also added with extras dedicated to the fisherman not found on the 11 Fly and Coupe models, like ice maker, 220 litres freezer, and a 200 litres live bait well. Thanks to Volvo IPS electronics the 11 Fisherman also features a slow speed, and electronic anchor modes. Both of these very usual instruments for the dedicated angler.
