New Model: Bruno Abbate Primatist B62 Aerotop Pininfarina

 
 
It's been a much long wait for the new second in size model of the Bruno Abbate Primatist family, the B62 Aerotop Pininfarina.  Finally launched the B62 completes the today all in the water five model Pininfarina designed family which starts with the recently launched B41, and goes up to the G70 the start up for the collaboration with the known design firm and the Italian Como boat builder in 2005.  As all the Aerotop Pininfarina I think the B62 brings a breath of fresh air in design terms to the industry versus the competition, from the look of the super structure to some unedited layouts which we have seen in other models of the range as the Special Edition option of the open aft deck shown for the first time on a custom orange colored G46, and since then also developed for another G53, and now shown on hull one of this latest Primatist. Inside the Bruno Abbate Primatist B62 is offered in a standard three cabins versions all with personal shower head; full beam owners stateroom, VIP suite to forward, and double guest cabin to starboard.  Below is also a separate galley located to port side, although in four cabins version I imagine this to be replaced by same and kitchen moved on the main deck.  Relaxing lounge is on the main deck a large L-shaped settee behind the very nice two seat helm, and entertainment area opposite. A crew cabin for one person is located to midships between the owners and engine room.  Power for hull one is from twin Volvo 900hp with IPS1200 pods which should give top speeds in the region of 35 knots.
