Launch of first Monte Fino 85 ecHo
Tue, 4 Dec 2012
The first Monte Fino 85 ecHo has successfully completed its sea trail. The yacht is now on its way to Europe and will be on display at the upcoming boot Duesseldorf in January of 2013.
Built in composite with a length of 25.9 metres, the Monte Fino ecHo 85 is designed by Humphreys Yacht Design, the H of ecHo meaning Humphreys. 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 is optimized to reduce the fuel consumption and emissions.
Powered by the latest generation of twin 715hp Cummins engines, it did over 16.5 knots top 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.
