A boat for families who want to spend long periods on board. Lots of substance and few frills. That’s the effect this Nordic cruiser brought to the Venice Boat Show 2023 by
Bella Center Italy
. New for this year, theAquador 300 HT welcomes us aboard with a large platform where we find a seat that hides the locker on the transom and a small table that can be mounted directly on the small beach. Already from here we get a sense of real yacht-like solutions for what when tested is a vessel with an overall length of 9.28 meters.
Aquador 300 HT
Two walkways allow us to go to the bow where the main sundeck is, but it is under the hard-top (with a central fabric opening) that design efforts were concentrated. This section makes maximum use of the beam, sacrificing some of the exterior walkways, but allows space for an adjustable table with various seating, a kitchen with plenty of storage lockers, refrigerators, iceboxes and whatnot. In short, everything you might want from a compact boat but on which to spend long periods aboard.
Below the floor level we access, engines or other storage spaces. The wheelhouse remains fully enclosed and closed under the canopy in bad weather, but should we wish to enjoy the nice days there are panels that can be opened.
We then think that the entire cockpit area is closable from the stern of the hard-top. Add to this the fact that the table can be lowered to become a bed, and we can even add two more beds on board, in addition to those below deck.
Below deck we find a forward and aft cabin, both double and the table on the deck can be lowered to create a third berth, as this section of the salon can be enclosed. At the trim level this model is not intended to be particularly luxurious, but certainly everything on board is of undoubted quality.
Aquador 300 HT – Motorization
At the engine level, one can opt between sterndrives and outboard motors, with power ratings from 270 to 400 total horsepower. Performance clearly goes accordingly, but the choice between one or the other option can affect not only speed but also space on board, for example on the aft platform.
