SEA TOP 13.90, ENTRY LEVEL AND BEST SELLER OF THE BLU MARTIN RANGE, IS DUE FOR A RESTYLING
February 2016. Blu Martin shipyard, a Sea Engineering Group brand, is preparing to launch on the market, next summer 2016, an extensively revisited version of its bestselling Sea Top 13.90, a model particularly in vogue among the brand’s enthusiasts. The newcomer retains the elegance and charm of the original model, while featuring a more modern style and greater attention to the comfort of guests on board.
Increased liveability for the external spaces, new windows and an innovative hard top makes the new Sea Top 13.90 lines even more streamlined and contemporary, boosting comfort and technology, while also significantly improving liveability and quality of life on board.
Measuring 13.90 metres in length and over 4 metres in width full beam, the new Sea Top 13.90 by Blu Martin includes two or three cabins, depending on the version, and can comfortably host up to 12 people. The interior also comprises two bathrooms and a spacious yet cosy galley and dinette.
Turning to the external spaces, the bow sun pad will be even more spacious and functional, while a foldaway table in the outer cockpit will make for more comfortable use of the sofa, turning the area into a veritable lounge for ultimate relaxation on board.
For the comfort of guests, the hard top has been modified to increase the opening surface. Moreover, the side windows have been expanded, so as to further improve ventilation and lighting.
In terms of design, the swim platform astern has been shortened by a few centimetres in the central part, so as to completely eliminate any spray-back, in addition to endowing it with a contemporary look. The portholes are more modern and rectangular in shape, and are dotted along a strip that runs along the entire side, considerably increasing the brightness of the interiors. The new design, inspired by the automotive industry, also encompasses the bridge, which accommodates all the instrumentation displays and improves ergonomics and steering comfort. Finally, the stern bitts have been repositioned for greater ease of use while mooring.
Sea Top 13.9 retains the original model’s characteristic and stylish hard top, allowing guests to use the large outdoor dinette in all weather conditions, as well as providing the necessary shelter from the wind when the boat picks up speed. With a cruising speed of 29 knots and a top speed of 31 knots, the yacht also registers the lowest fuel consumption levels for its category (95 L/h at cruising speed with the standard Volvo Penta IPS 600 engine). The high-performance hull has also remained unchanged, further ensuring low fuel consumption (a distinguishing characteristic of all boats in the range). The interior, two- and three-cabin layout, instead, has been revisited, as always with ample scope for customization, reflecting Blu Martin’s construction and commercial philosophy.
Three engines are available: in addition to the Volvo Penta IPS 600 (2 x 435 hp), it is possible to install a Volvo Penta IPS 500 (2 x 375 hp) or a Volvo Penta D6-D/P (2 x 400 hp).
The new model will be completed by July 2016, and will be officially launched in France, at the opening of the boating season, during the September 2016 Cannes Yachting Festival.
