New Model: Austin Parker 36 Natante

Austin Parker show its very attention to the market when presenting the new 36 Natante, this last word meaning small craft on the Italian registration.  Since presenting its new course with the 42 Open, Austin Parker has always looked at larger models expanding its size up to the 72 launched in 2010.  Now seeing the big U-turn in the economy and the fiscal benefits in the smaller sizes, Austin Parker was fast to react presenting a smaller new entry level model the 36 Natante.  Designed as all the line by famed Italian Fulvio de Simoni the 36 Natante definitely strikes for its sweet contemporary classic lines, which apart looking awesome also work very well and keep the unique family feeling of the line.  The layout of the Austin Parker seems to keep well with a mix of down East lobster looks with Mediterranean users practicality offering a cockpit deck with three L-shaped settees and a wet bar, and a lower deck with an open layout offering a V-double berth to fore, L-shaped saloon, galley, and a separate shower head to port side. Austin Parker makes a big statement with the the 36 Natante that smaller does not mean cheaper. Power is twin Volvo 300hp with IPS pods giving a max speed up to 34 knots and a cruise of 30.
