New Model: Aqualum 38

Aqualum is a South American boat builder from Argentina, and after showing its 38 as a project it finally launches this model.  Designed by Fabian Conte, the Aqualum 38 should follow up on the success that the 35 model provided for the South American boat builder especially in Southern Europe, thank to a well planned strategy of a competitive price.  The 38 is a flybridge motor cruiser with a traditional two cabins layout. But here is also an interesting how the galley although in a lower level was used in a more astern position, giving more space to the cabins located to fore.  Power is from twin Volvo 300 or optional 435hp with shaft line propulsion. Speed is a max of 32 knots with the optional large units.
