New Model: Neptunus 650 Express

Neptunus from Canada but of Dutch origins was a builder hitting the news in Europe at around the early 2000's with a 56 Express and 41 taking a good number of sales happening in the old continent with these two models.  This escalation of these Euro inspired Neptunus models for a reason or another stopped and we hardly heard anything about the boat builder for a time.  Fast forward to 2017 and Neptunus launch this new 650 Express who is getting the news out of Canada in 2018.  The new Neptunus 650 Express is a twenty meter sport yacht designed by Gregory Marshall for exterior, Lex Parker for interior, and hull form by British Tony Castro. The trio presented a three double cabins sport yacht, with an owners stateroom at midships, and living, dining and galley located in the enclosed part of the main deck.  Browsing at technical details the Neptunus 650 looks rather light weight displacing at only 34 tons dry and powered by not so big Cats 1000hp engines which give a 31 knots top speed.  A bigger Cats 1138hp Cat option is available increasing both top and cruise speed by about one knot.
