The Story

The outstanding Hermes Speedster, a classic styled retro boat inspired by the Porsche 356 from 1959 and strongly influenced by the Gentleman’s runabout boats of the 30s’. Hermes, successfully combines luxury, efficiency, style and comfort. The natural curved lines and the absence of any straight lines, offers a dynamic motion and a unique character to the design.

Performance

The innovative hull’s performance characteristics are truly staggering. First of all Hermes has a very low drag resistance which allows the use of smaller engines than similar sized boats while still being faster than its competitors. It features a really steep entry, cutting the waves with an entry angle of 72 degrees that in combination with the rest of the hull, ensures a very soft ride with no pounding as the boat cuts through the waves. Furthermore the boats maintain at all cruising speeds very low trim angles between 2 and 2,8 degrees. Unlike other motor boats, there is no specific speed at which they transition to plane. Instead as the speed increases, it gradually come out of the water maintaining a nearly horizontal attitude at all times.

In these boats there is no hump coming on plane. This means that one can cruise at any speed from as low as 5 knots up to the boat’s maximum speed. The boat also feature tremendous stability characteristics due to its extremely low center of gravity. Hermes is very stable while cruising and at rest. Like its bigger siblings, Hermes demonstrate an unbelievable average consumption of 5,5L/h. Confirming once again the title of “The most efficient production boat in the world"

Interior

Each piece of the interior, from the seats and the steering wheel to the speakers and the switches, is especially designed and hand crafted with attention to detail. Due to the convertible top, in a few seconds, you can enjoy your boat, despite the bad weather conditions. The convertible top in combination with the optional heater and glass defroster, makes the boat ideal for colder climates. Furthermore, Hermes can accommodate up to 5 people.
