New Model: Austin Parker 48 Sportfly

Austin Parker continues to evolve and here the Italian boat builder presents the flybridge version of its 48 model which was introduced in 2017 as the Sundeck model, and is now complete with the new Sportfly version.  The difference between the Sundeck and the new 48 Sportfly as the title says is all about the flybridge, with this new model having a second helm station up top located to port side, and a sun-pad plus settee with moving bolster to starboard.  For the remaining the Austin Parker 48 Sportfly is identical to the Sundeck with a three lower deck layout, having a full beam owners cabin, VIP cabin forward, and third bunk two berths cabin to port side.  The galley in the Austin Parker 48 Sportfly is located below.  The Austin Parker 48 has since launching the hull one of the series also released an engine upgrade now being powered by twin Cummins 600hp, an extra of 50hp and more important now featuring a bigger 8.3 liter versus the 6.7 block.
