New Model: Sarnico 46 Spider GTS

Presented in the fall of 2011, this is the Sarnico 46 Spider GTS.  This new 46 GTS is a further development of the original Spider presented in 2006 designed by such great signatures as Nuvolari and Lenard for the lines and layouts, and Victory Brunello Acampora for the superb underwater shape.  This new larger Spider is again a design of the same renowned designers. As the signature in the name suggests the 46 Spider GTS offers creature comforts and some interesting options to make it more become a cruiser.  These optional are the hardtop as hull one was in fact delivered, and a choice for the exterior cockpit to have it with two sunbeds, or large L-shaped settees.  Inside the 46 Spider GTS is no slough offering two cabins sleeping five, and a well sized shower head.  The midships cabin sleeps three persons having a french double, and single berth to starboard.  Power options are three Cummins engines from 480 up to 700hp with the Italian made innovative Flexidrive surface drive propulsion.  Flexidrive was used by Sarnico first time on its not so long ago presented flagship, and considering this is the new model following it we should see this more in use on future releases from this well respected Italian boat builder.
