General Details

Diesel Low Hours! Wellcraft Portofino's bold Eurostyle appearance, excellent performance and fabulous layout are just some of the reasons this model continues to be so popular. The spacious bi-level cockpit provides seating for a dozen or more guests in comfort and style. A very large swim platform, ice maker and wet bar make entertaining a breeze. Inside the cabin is an open concept galley and salon with seating for many. The V-berth bed is huge, and the second stateroom has very comfortable bunk beds and a privacy door. The galley is equipped with Subzero fridge and freezer, loads of storage and generous counter space. A separate enclosed shower stall rounds out a spacious, modern head layout.

Portofino is based on a modified V-hull. The wide beam (14' 6"), low deadrise (14 degrees) and proper engine balancing provide an efficient and very dry ride. CAT  Turbo Diesel engines 700 total hp make this vessel a fast and economical cruising or fishing machine!!! Including  ZF transmissions and a full compliment of electronics and many extras, she is in amazing condition and ready to go!
