Project: Marquis 420 Sport Bridge

Marquis presents the project for the 420 Sport Bridge the newest addition to its continually expanding line. Designed as all recent Marquis by the noted firm of Nuvolari-Lenard Naval Architects of Venice, Italy, the new 420 is a highly styled, premium flybridge motor cruiser that features a sleek, spacious and comfortable bridge.  As was the case for the first Marquis Sport Bridge the 500, the 420 is based on the lines of the successful 420 Sport Coupe model, adding the sport lines with a sleek flybridge featuring a second helm. The flybridge of the 420 Sport Bridge features amenities for people who love to operate their yacht surrounded by sunshine and sea breeze and it complements the open concept of the yacht's galley, salon, cockpit and swim platform. If open spaces, fresh air and sunshine are at the top of your list, the Marquis 420 Sport Bridge was designed with this in mind.  The flybridge features an L-shaped settee and helm station with pilot and co-pilot seat. Connection to this area is from the aft deck via an integrated staircase to port side. The decor continues Marquis stylish and contemporary finishing constructed from the finest wood and yacht building materials available. The 420 Sport Bridge bulkheads and cabinets can be constructed from a variety of hardwoods and decor can be chosen to reflect an owner's personal taste and style.  The 420 Sport Bridge reflects contemporary modern yacht design and construction, even in the hull form this being specifically designed to maximize the benefits of twin pod drives, this allowing for known characteristics of easy manoeuvring and fuel efficiency. The 420 Sport Bridge is the fourth model in the Marquis fleet to be powered by Volvo IPS pods. Three twin Volvo Penta diesel or gas petrol engines choices are available from 370 up to 435hp each.
