A Sport yacht, or even an open yacht, is a boat whose main features are:

  • High performance
  • planing hull
  • single deck on the hull
  • sporty and appealing look

Sports yachts are designed to reach high speeds. Thanks to the different engines and propulsion configurations, they are able to achieve high performance in terms of maximum and cruising speed.
