Debuting at Boot Düsseldorf 2023 is a small cabin cruiser loaded with surprises, surprises that will not fail to amaze precisely at this worldwide reveal. Because although it is only 7.83 meters long, theAquador 250 HT is a boat full of hidden numbers, starting with the spaces below deck: two separate double cabins and a private bathroom, unimaginable spaces for the size and a guarantee of comfortable cruising for as many as 4 people.
Aquador 250 HT
But the tricks up the sleeve of the 250 HT are not limited to what is hidden under the deck. Indeed, clearly visible is the Hard Top, from which the boat is also named. This is indeed a very versatile element, which not only repairs and protects, but also contains within itself different configurations from open to cabin in just a few steps. Not to be left out, the motorization also appears important for the size, offering 225- and 250-horsepower configurations. But let’s take a closer look at it.
Aquador 250 HT – Exterior
At first glance the lines are compact, pronounced, yet they do not lack their own momentum and remarkable cleanliness, a feature that makes this 7.8-meter boat an eye-catching and pleasing vessel. Both the pulpit and the deep aft platform give the overall design of the volumes loads of dynamism, while offering ample space on the water and considerable protection. Starting right from the swim platform, we find an early and clever solution in the outboard-powered variants, the recess in which it houses the engine, which keeps it further inboard without sacrificing space in the dashboard, rather extending it to its sides.
Just beyond, the cockpit is well protected and appears comfortable, with a convivial space consisting of two L-shaped sofas, coffee table, and double seating in the wheelhouse. Notable here is the aforementioned hard top, whose design aims to combine all the advantages related to both ‘Cabin’ and ‘Open’. In fact, the idea lies in offering a hard top that can function both as such, as well as close completely offering an entire protected convivial section, making the boat virtually all weather. If necessary, however, the opposite is also possible, through the opening of the skylights located in the top itself.
Finally, to conclude the exteriors, a generous handrail runs from the cockpit to the pulpit, providing safety of movement from stern to bow. Here, on the deckhouse, we find a double sundeck, ideal for making this area also a great place for relaxation or conviviality.
Moving below decks, as mentioned, the 250 HT first offers a two-cabin layout, with a full-beam double forward section and a narrower double aft, clashing at the starboard broadside. To the left, just aft of the forward cabin, is an enclosed toilet instead, while a central hallway functions as an entrance and access to every other space.
Aquador 250 HT – Performance and Motorization
In terms of performance, while waiting to try it out, it is necessary to analyze the boat according to its specifications. The hull is made, as in the case of the 300 HT, with the new AquaDynamic Hull process, a system developed to have optimal properties in terms of structure, offering a hull that allows it to enter glide even at low speeds. A solution, this one, that not only thus requires lower engine speeds, but implies savings in terms of fuel consumption and a consequent lower environmental impact.
The entire new Aquador segment of which the 250 HT is a part is also made by vacuum injection, a construction method that optimizes material distribution while further reducing impacts on the environmental front. Moving instead to the propulsion front, the boat is offered primarily with inboard motorization, but is also made available outboard. In terms of choice, one can opt for a 225-horsepower V6 or choose a 250-horsepower V8. Currently, speed and performance related to the behavior of the hull in water are yet to be released.
