Mr. Nikica B., with NCP for over 15 years! Impressions on Marex 320 ACC?
For this size of boat it leaves you speachless, everything is just where it should be, every inch perfectly used. Gives you a feeling of warmth, safety, suprises you with well thought details, in no time you feel at home. Interior, building materials and design of head unit, shower compartment, get tired trying to find a mistake, and you are supposed to be on vacation !
Unbelievable maritime capabilities. Easy handling, smooth on the seas, even in rough conditions. And at the cruising speed of 17-19 kts does not consume much diesel.
For the rest you want to know, you have to come and try...
