The marked ability to use materials and colours, even in new and completely original combinations, characterises the Italian shipyard Capoforte. This capability is made manifest in the features of the new SX280i “Collezione”.

It stands as the interpretation of a successful model by the Italian shipyard, shown in the combinations and colours, becoming a collector's unique piece; a boat destined to remain a “one-off” in its features.

The presentation of SX280i 'Collezione', at the last Cannes Yachting Festival, was followed by the announcement of the future development of another “custom-built” model by the shipyard.  This initiative attracted considerable interest, confirming the desire of the owners not to give up on unique and unrepeatable customisation, even in the small dimensions range.

“’Collezione’ should not be understood as it is in the fashion world, but indicates the desire to collect a unique piece, dedicated to enthusiasts who want to own a product that can never be confused with another,” explains the designer Christian Grande. “The ability to create models such as SX280i ‘Collezione’ is a perfect example of the constructive, technical, and stylistic capabilities of the Capoforte brand.”

SX280i“Collezione”, relaxation and performance

SX280i “Collezione” is the ideal choice for an eclectic owner, who wants to alternate water sports with days of pure relaxation at sea, and who desires a boat that shares their versatility: high-performance, comfort and extreme elegance. Hull and deck are painted in an elegant Blue Ulisse, well matching the rich Cognac cushions on the deck and the Sunset Gold dashboard.

An ideal boat for those who want to share a new way of boating with their family and friends, thanks to the careful design of the deck and the innovative details, such as the padded edge of the cockpit, which guarantees extra safety and comfort, also highlighting the shipyard’s manufacturing skills.

With its large swimming platform in the stern, SX280i “Collezione” stands out for its layout and the comfort it offers, carefully studied in every detail. Here are original solutions dedicated to those owners who look for a distinctive and unique boat; a boat designed to enhance contact with the sea and conviviality. Its finishing touches - such as a well-sized cockpit in which several people can sit comfortably – may be turned into a small living room, once on the water. 

High performance and comfort when cruising

Climbing aboard SX280i “Collezione”, you will find a large swimming platform in the stern, as well as the engine compartment, which is covered with a sundeck cushion and can be extended by rotating the rear backrest. The “I” of the name actually stands for “Inboard”, to underline the choice of a sterndrive motor. The central area has a comfortable L-shaped sofa facing the wheelhouse, which has a double ergonomically shaped seat that is part of the equipped central unit. The bridge is protected by a large windscreen all around. 

The sheltered side aisles, typical of centre console boats, allow people to move easily and safely in the bow, where the boatbuilders have created a comfortable sunbed ahead of the console. This sunbed, with a C-shaped sofa along the entire bow, makes this area ideal for relaxing even when the boat is moving.

Great attention to design and detail have not eclipsed the technical features of Capoforte SX280i “Collezione”. With 350 HP, it can reach a top speed of 39 knots and a cruising speed of 21 knots.
