New Model: Vivante 43 Hard Top

Vivante presents the 43 Hard Top model, which is based on the lines of the previously 2009 launched and HISWA winner Cabrio Cruiser with a different upper structure.  This entry level to the Vivante range of steel and alloy cruisers and yachts continues the influence of classic lines, mixed with a more modern upper structure.  Designed by A.R. and Vripack the Vivante 43 Hardtop has various choices to suit owners needs and tastes.  The most important choice is between an alloy or steel construction, with the later meaning a bigger engine and more speeds.  The 43 Hard Top is also offered with a choice of seven different main and lower deck layouts, two of which available for the lighter alloy constructed model.  In these versions one gets to choose a two or three cabins, and a lower or upper galley.  The owners suite is always located to fore. Power are single Volvo 150 or optional 170hp with shafts for steel, or 370hp with forward looking IPS pod drive.
