How do you increase on-board livability without NJ XL family of
is aiming for just that, namely open ribs that are able to offer maximum space on board. The latest arrival in chronological order is the New Jolly NJ 850 XL, 8.73 meters long and with a 3.35-meter beam that now represents the flagship of the NJ XL family.

Ideal both as an inflatable boat for day trips and for those who are keen on nautical camping, it has three large storage spaces on its side, to which is added a floor space that can accommodate clear and black water tanks if necessary, and a possible central mobile locker.
Depending on the need, this rib can install T-top or a fiberglass or stainless steel roll cage. The project was built from scratch and was carried out by the shipyard together with Matteo De Francesco, who had already worked on the two previous NJ XLs, the 650 and 700.

The large surfaces available are versatile, so that every space can be used according to the moment, starting with the aft area, which turns from a sunbathing area into a dining area.
The two dashboard seats are fixed, but hide a small wet-bar equipped with a sink and kitchenette underneath. In the bow of this section, however, a refrigerator has been carved out. The dashboard on the center console is spacious and can accommodate everything needed by those who want to sail.
In the front part is a cabin with a chemical toilet, which can also be used as a locker. The real lounging area of this rib, however, remains the bow, where a full-width sundeck (which also becomes a table with a C-shaped sofa) has been designed with storage space underneath.
Despite its far from ordinary width, this New Jolly retains its sporty lines and can be powered by a single 450-horsepower outboard or two outboards up to 225 HP. The pros and cons of opting for one solution over the other are not only about safety, performance, and cost, but also about the space you want to have available aft. In this sense, the single-engine version allows for two very large aft platforms on either side of the engine.
