Project: Cayman S450

Seeing Cayman yachts return with a new project set to be World presented at the Cannes 2017 boat show is a good moment.  But this lasted little since this project of the new Cayman S450 is different to what the La Spezia boat builder represented since its founding in 1996 and the first decade of the new millennium, that for cruisers and yachts with sport-fishing and practical details integrated into the design.  It is possible the old range will return in a not so distant future since Cayman new course is advising for S and F ranges and will build boats from 45 to 92 feet. Still at this stage it is fair to not take nothing away from the S450 which offers nice looking exterior looks and is designed from top to bottom by Paolo Prosperi son of Cayman founder Luigi.  Paolo was always part of the Cayman project, mostly as naval architect and taking care of the technical details, with exterior design duties of the previous models trusted to Nuvolari Lenard.  The Cayman S450 will be powered by twin Volvo 370hp with IPS pod drives, which will give top speeds up to 32 knots.  Accommodation will offer two double cabins plus two heads.
