Project: Austin Parker Mahon 80

Austin Parker present the project for a Mahon 80, a second in size model and flagship for its fully enclosed hard-top cruisers and yachts lines named to the capital city of the Island of Menorca.  As all Austin Parker onwards from 2008 the Mahon 80 is designed by Fulvio de Simoni looking similar to the Ibiza 85 flagship which launched in 2022, with the similarities stopping there.  Unlike the 85, the Mahon 80 is to be build in fiberglass and the hull is over a meter slimmer.  The Austin Parker Mahon 80 is an innovative fully enclosed hard-top which opens a lot when desired, from a patio door which fully disappears, to side windows which drop down, making the enclosed area of the main deck become rather open.  The living space of the Mahon 80 is to be located on the main deck, with a galley located astern and centrally.  The astern galley apart being something rare in this size, is also located centrally.  Another innovation in the Mahon 80 is the aft sun-pad, which is located two steps down from the main deck, becoming a part of the beach club when on anchor.  Down below the Austin Parker Mahon 80 offers a three or four double cabins layout, with two crew cabins at midships, with an option for an open dinette, or office space in replacement of the fourth cabin.  The Austin Parker Mahon is powered by twin Man 1000hp up to 2000hp in line shafts, or surface drives for the large engine option.  Speed estimates are for 35 knots top speed from the 2000hp engines with line shaft propulsion.
