ECT petrol engines of two 370HP Yanmar ZT370 diesels with joystick control.
Fiona Pool, the Hunton CEO who hosted an invitation-only cocktail event to introduce the XRS37, said: “We’ve had a wonderful year, both in the UK and the South of France but the icing on the cake has been our distribution partnership with Total Marine here in Fort Lauderdale.”
