The four 350 hp Mercury Verado outboards on its transom are impossible to ignore. “I remember getting on the boat and thinking, ‘That’s a huge amount of power,'” says Natalia of her first impression. Deep Impact color-coordinates the engines to match the custom pearl-white gelcoat, creating a striking appearance.
But it’s not just looks that get this boat noticed. It’s what the quad installation does when you hit the throttles. “I had it up to 70; I’ve never been so fast on a boat!” says Natalia, who took a turn at the helm. The 360FS is capable of reaching 80 mph, running comfortably on its twin-stepped Kevlar-reinforced hull with 24 degrees of deadrise at the transom.
The FS stands for forward seating, meaning there are cushioned bucket seats in the bow area. All other seating is performance style, with two stand-up bolster seats at the helm, three seats along the transom and two in front of the console. “The boat is all about speed, but it’s comfortable driving fast,” Natalia says. “It’s quite a ride.”
“I loved the colors of my suit,” says Natalia of her Seafolly kokomo bardot bandeau bikini in striped green. “it’s so perfect for boating and felt great on my skin.” to look great in her two-piece suits, the Ukranian beauty started each day at the Pink Shell Resort in her favorite spot. “Having a fully equipped gym on site was great,” she says.
