Franco Gianni of SFG Yacht Design unveiled a new fresh exclusive design of the center console boat called F18 with a length of 18 meters and inboard engines and the smaller F16 with outboard motors.

Italian yacht designer Franco Gianni with offices in Miami and Italy, uses the Corona lockdown phase in his Italian home studio to create some artworks. Here are the F18 and F16 – two stylish center console boats to cruise in comfort but also with high speeds and, of course, with style.

“The teak deck on this boat is a work of art in itself, using a combination of colors to match the boat and a fishbone layout to really make it pop. I had to be careful to not over design her. I figured that a couple key pieces should standout and be defining, the aft deck table and the dashboard, to say the least. These two pieces are carefully thought out to not only look great but also be functional at the same time. The dashboard is a custom, single piece of dual curved glass with a giant custom, multipurpose navigation screen hidden underneath”

The F18 has two MAN 1900 12-cylinder engines with 1,900 hp each, connected to surface drives. The engine type meets the TIER III regulations.

More hull weight instead of "paperweight"

“Instead of building an all carbon fiber, epoxy infused, super light boat as many custom yards would prefer, I’m going with a heavier hull with carbon and Kevlar reinforcements and then doing the deck and all components in carbon to keep the center of gravity low for better sea keeping capabilities, I want this boat to be a true offshore machine not an 18 meter paperweight.”

The smaller sister is powered by four 627 hp outboard engines by Seven Marine. Instead of sunbeds and a bathing platform, the boat has a daybed aft with a view on a big screen to watch movies.
