Akes 20 II

 

All-weather open Boat, 6 m long  (+ any stern platforms) x 2.30 m, building material  thick aluminum 5083 H111 or  GRP  reinforced

with carbon and kevlar , structural layout with watertight bulkheads and foam for unsinkability, about 600 kg dry weight, hull suitable

 for a light engine starting from 75 hp up to 150 hp max hp, but the boat has a  very deep V with high deadrise entry, suitable for all

seas, the average deadrise is greater than 29 , deeply and hardly tested in Sardinia's west coast; it has been thought in order to have

no appreciable differences of behavior under varying load.  Stable afloat, especially dry, a prerequisite for those who enjoy fishing

not only in summer.

The deck is customizable, the basic layout provides a big bow sundress with huge locker, protective console with seat facing

forwards, backrest bolsters with enough space for fridge and cook, aft couch - dinette, or longitudinal benches or void wide space.

Locker space in the bow, in console batteries, water ballast (or large livewell) in front of the console; underdeck polyethylene

tank 100 L, aft stowage locker .Completes the layout the t-top option and stern platforms.

Rough sea test of the first prototype confirmed the efficiency of the design: brilliant performances with only 80 hp, dry and soft ride,

the hull is easy to maneuver, easy to drive, stable and planes easily while ensuring reduced fuel consumption.

The design project has been updated now with many improvemens, i.e. wider beam for greater stabilty, more inside room space,

even more stiffness for installing bigger engines, new top cover and more space for the helm seat and consolle.
