Requin Gris 28 (its style shows clear references to the
great predator) is an open boat of 8.5 metres
with outboards or stern-drive engine. It has an entirely customizable deck,
for meeting the demands of somebody who needs a cabin boat fit
for being employed as a day
cruiser or also for mid-range cruises. In fact,
there is the space for a cabin with a wide double-bed,
a bathroom and also
the option of having the space for four beds; moreover, there is a
deck whose surface is entirely exploitable, a dinette and a
shaped sun deck at the bow; this boat
can be used as a sports fishing boat
thanks to the fact that there is plenty of room and thanks to
range. The deep V hull type ensures a soft impact on the waves and, most of
great stability at anchor but, at the same time, it is easily in
flowing and allows the achievement
of high speeds (up to 2x350 hp, 58 knots)
for the speed lovers but also of very low horsepower
(2x150 hp) in order to
reach a considerable speed.
This boat, tested right after being launched, and powered
with two 250 hp evinrude E-tec
engines, reached a speed of 49 knots @ 5600
revolutions with no less than 9 people aboard!
The recorded planing speed is
(min.) 16 knots @ 2800 rpm and the recorder cruising speed is
32 knots @
3700 revolutions. The perfectly balanced hull and the constant steadiness
proved by the speed the boat can reach with a single engine and 6 people
aboard (almost 30 knots).
The boat is extremely dry.
The design allows a construction in sandwiches of plywood and
epoxy resin enforced with biaxial fibreglass
and Kevlar, or aluminum 5083 alloy,in order to ensure
the highest sturdiness and weightlessness.
The structure is made up of a
thick reinforcing grating with remarkably thick structural water-tight
girders with a large section mounted with a regularly jointed
structure which ensures an extremely monolithic
result. This is made
possible thanks to the careful design process along with the employment of
milling machines which enable the realization of strong pieces
with extremely low tolerances.
This building system is on the cutting edge
regarding the relation weight/sturdiness, therefore it grants
with any kind of weather and at the same time it remarkably minimizes the
Last but not least, this building method in which
everything is programmed in advance and nothing is
left to chance, allows
the construction of the boat very quickly and with completely reasonable
There is a cabin with double-bed, a bathroom, and a kitchen area.
