Project: Estensi 360 Goldstar S

Following the launch of its new flagship the 640 Maine, Estensi shipyard from Italy returns to concentrate on its traditional down east looking Goldstar line, and presents the project for the 360 S.  This model will be the entry level of the Goldstar Sport line which will now feature five cruisers and yachts from 36 up to 54 feet, and is planned for launch in the coming Spring of 2012.  The Sport line represents a more modern take on the lobster boat looks with designer Zuccheri presenting a sloop stern, and sleeker upper structure pilothouse.  Contrary to what one would believe the 360 Goldstar S will also feature a different hull to what the Classic version offers, with a wider beam by ten centimeters, and longer waterline length.  Her interior will offer a lower accommodation deck with a two double cabins plan, and L-shaped galley.  The main deck saloon will offer the living daily relaxing area with a C-shaped saloon, opposite entertainment unit, and the helm station to starboard.  Power to the Vee shaped planning hull will be from standard FPT engines 270hp or optional 380 in traditional line shaft propulsion.
