New Model: Salpa 30.5 GT

Salpa headed to this years fall Genoa boat show with an important novelty that of the 30.5 GT. The latest Salpa gets a lot of interest first for its today hard to find legendary Renato Sonny Levi hull shape, and second for being another sport cruiser which offers a good mix of a day and cabin boat. Interesting is that many of the Sport Cruiser who are going for this new trend are from Naples, or have the design team which comes from the area. What strikes in the 30.5 GT is the nice glassed hard top which covers the double seat helm station. Outside of the 30.5 Gran Turismo is in fact a full day boat which makes use of all the length with a centre console served by a wet bar behind, a sun pad to fore reached from both sides with a walk around style staircase, and two L-shaped dinettes aft. An extended aft bathing platform reached with a central passageway from the cockpit competes the exterior fit out. Inside is a well laid space which considering the outside is quite spacious offering four berths, an L-shaped galley, and a separate shower head. The sleeping area is in fact a convertible V-shaped dinette to fore, and double berth located to mid ship. Power is for twin 300hp petrol gas engines, or 220hp diesel both with stern drives propulsion.
