Fjord 36 open at boat show Antibes Yacht Show (12. 4. – 15. 4. 2012)
Fjord will present the exciting Fjord 36 open, which has astonished international boat testers with her speed and seaworthiness. Last season this model has become the bestseller in the Fjord range, sold successfully as pleasure boat as well as motor yacht tender.
FJORD 36 OPEN DRIVES 44 KNOTS! SURPRISING SEA TRIALS
The big sister Fjord 40 open cached the title "European Powerboat of the Year" 2008 in the year of her launch. The new Fjord 36 Open showed herself as radical, exciting and fast.
Even Fjord 36 open-Designer Patrick Banfield did not want to believe it. His calculations had been around 36 knots top speed. The boat, as radical as the bigger sister Fjord 40 Open, showed exciting speed. And a lot more than predicted.
At tests for a group of international boat test journalists on the windy and choppy Mediterranean near the HanseGroup Service Center MYSC (France) the 2 Volvo D 4 with each 300 HP pushed the Fjord 36 to 44 knots!
As well maneuvering the boat with DPH drive and joystick had been easy. The seaworthiness and performance are perfect. The new Fjord 36 open with its 600 HP does not overcharge her driver in any situation. She is nice and of a good nature. Maritime journalists from six European countries, who came in for a test trials, had the same feeling as the Fjord crew.
