Equipped with 2 Volvo IPS 500 engines of 370 HP each one reaches 35 knots at maximum power. This rental boat in Ibiza represents the reference point of modernization without sacrificing comfort. The German shipyard Fjord has its origins in the 60s of the last century, and over five decades of impeccable work has managed to build a reputation, arriving to have in its catalogue of products up to 70 models of different lengths.
The brand was originally born in Norway. In 2007 he joined the German group Hanse Yachts and his production was reoriented to innovative high-end designs. Its development is handled by the Allseas Design office, led by Patrick Banfield and Jim Wilshire, who already had a first-class endorsement in the field of recreational sailing: the Wally Tender. It currently has three products, which are really four boats, the 40 Open of 12 meters in length, the 48 Open as ‘top of the range’ with 15 meters in length, and the 36 Tender and 36 Open, both with 10,80m in length.
