At the Boat Show Genoa NOVAMARINE has presented inflatable boats such as Black Shiver (16/25m) that offer very high speed, robustness, low fuel consumption and large deck areas (for up to 25 people).

The reduced draft allows you to enjoy coasts with very shallow water.

For some inflatable boats you can choose between an outboard motor or a surface propeller. E.g. the Black Shiver 120 is 12m long and can reach a remarkable speed of 56 knots thanks to 3 outboard motors with a total of 1350 hp, alternatively with the 880 hp surface propeller it reaches 45 knots.

Francesco Pirro is the CEO of NOVAMARINE. This brand was born in 1983 in Sardinia/Olba. NOVAMARINE is well known in the world of boats because it revolutionised the field of rhibs with the foam filled tubular – rigid hull.

The General Manager Leandro Benchi says, that this allows them to produce actual boats with unique design features. The company that makes it possible is SNO. They have pushed the boundaries into designing larger boats and they have ventured the rhibs into professional sphere. The images of NAVY Seals are known worldwide.
