Where the tubes meet the water, the Barletta employs dual lifting strakes on all three 26-inch-diameter tubes, plus a full underbelly skin to boost speed and economy. The crossmembers are extruded I-beams gasketed at every bolted joint. The deck is three-quarter-inch plywood, glued and screwed together. Infinity Milan floor weave makes for attractive decking, but the real attraction is the furniture, console and layout. At the bow, two facing contoured loungers make for a cozy pit. There’s deck space in front of the polished stainless-steel entry gate for easy beaching. Amidships, the driver’s console is low and sleek. There’s no windscreen, but the design and layout are superb. Attention to detail in the design of the deck components, seating, installation and rigging is on a very high level. The captain and co-captain’s chairs are supple and supportive. The diamond-stitched Amalfi tan upholstery features carbon-black inset trim, a sleek combination that invites guests to kick back.
