PREMIUM ASSETS

Building in aluminium has other benefits compared to the mainly polyester dayboats currently available in this premium end of the sector. The California will be sustainable and hold its value well in addition to offering the traditional assets of aluminium in terms of strength and performance. The lightweight construction will be combined as standard with twin Volvo Penta IPS 800 engines for speeds of up to 35 knots, with an option to up the pace with IPS 950s and reach over 40 knots.
