Inace and Fernando de Almeida Yacht Design have joined forces at the Rio Boat Show to introduce the launch of their most recent collaboration: a 27.4-metre new-build project named Inace FHI 90. Yacht Collection, Inace’s national dealer, introduced the client for this unique partnership. The contract was signed in late 2018.

This modern expedition yacht combines the naval architecture of Inace with an efficient and contemporary design by Fernando de Almeida.

The series also includes two semi-displacement yachts, namely the SD 75 and SD 90.
The FHI 90 has two 800 bhp MAN engines which allow her to cruise at a top speed of 13.5 knots, although clients can also opt for other engine manufacturers since Inace can fully customise the yacht according to the client’s needs.Photo: Fernando de Almeida Yacht DesignSteel cutting already began in March this year in Fortaleza, Brasil, and the yacht is due to be delivered at the end of 2020.
