Project: Mano M37 Gran Sport

Mano seems to be putting a lot of new models in recent time and after launching its M42,50 flagship in early Summer this Italian boat builder moves on to present this M37 Gran Sport project. The M37 Grand Sport seems an expansion of the M32 Gran Sport project presented over a year ago and is designed by Naples firm Cabes Yachts. Taking innovation at heart both Mano and Cabes present a center console with a full length cockpit with cabin spaces nearly competing to those of a cruiser in similar sizes, with a lower deck offering an owners cabin to fore, double berth to midship, shower head, L-shaped saloon, and galley. The 37 Gran Sport is also full of options not only to color choices, but also to what regards its fitting out. Its exterior offers four choices to decide from; the radar arch model as the picture above, full open, T-bar, and last a glassed hard top covering all the center console. You also have inside options where an owner can choose to swap the galley for a second settee. With this you will have the galley on the main deck, which stands behind the central helm position only. But can be an interesting option for those who use such a boat mostly in Summer. Choices again are vast to what regards powering the M37 Gran Sport with a total of eleven engines from Mercruiser, Volvo, and Yanmar from twin 220 up to 320hp. Propulsion comes from all the stern drives from these three engine manufactures, and the option of a Volvo IPS pod drive option.
