The first Monte Fino 85 ecHo has successfully completed its sea trail and she is now on her way to Europe to make her debut at the upcoming Boot Düsseldorf in January 2013.
Built in composite with a length of 25.9 metres, the Monte Fino ecHo 85 is designed by Humphreys Yacht Design. She’s a modern eco-friendly motor yacht with the capability of an explorer yacht for long-range cruising.
Designed to be efficient at displacement and semi-displacement regimes, the ecHo series are optimized to reduce the fuel consumption and emissions. Powered by the latest generation of twin 715hp Cummins engines, she had a top speed of 16.5 knots with a cruising speed of 12 knots and a range of nearly 4,000 nautical miles at 8.6 knots. These are all better than originally estimated.
The first ecHo also comes with Twin Disc transmission and QuickShift function. She can be easily maneuvered and docked with Twin Disc EJS (Express Joystick System).
The interior was designed by Giorgia Drudi, a former Ferretti Yachts interior designer, in a contemporary Italian style, accommodates eight guests in a full-beam master, a VIP, a spacious third double cabin and one twin cabin. The crew quarters for four members are located aft.
