New Model: Faeton F-36 Formentera

The Formentera series is a new range from Faeton, which with the F-36 presents a hybrid design of a high performance center console, and a cabin boat.  A growing trend this one which started in Italy and has seen many builders in the European peninsula jump on this style of boat.  The Faeton is one of the first of this hybrid center console cabin mash up to come out of Italy.  Faeton Astondoa Group took more a performance route with a slim beam of just over three meters and a two step deep vee hull for its F-36 Formentera.  Accommodation offers four berths in a Vee shaped convertible berth, door serpated cabin with two singles at midships, plus a galley, and shower head in between.  The exterior offers an L-shaped settee to aft, two seat center console, galley wet bar behind helm, and two step passageway to the foredeck in an all around deck.  Engine wise the Faeton F-36 Formentera is more an outboard design boat with three engine choices starting from twin Mercury 200hp up to 300hp.  In stern drive inboard choice the F-36 Formentera is offered with a single Mercruiser 320hp gas petrol choice.  Being Faeton Spanish I am still surprised of no diesel engine option.  We will see if this will happen in the near future.
