New ruggedly-styled, multi-purpose aluminium boat brand takes its inspiration from commercial marine
Finland's Modius AB has established a totally new ruggedly-styled, multi-purpose aluminium boat brand for pleasure boat customers.
?The offshore industry has long focused on the best way to use investments in ships. That's where we got the phrase 'Multi Purpose Vessel', MPV, meaning that one single boat can take care of several different duties making the investment more efficient. The same philosophy is built into the Modius boats; to ensure a long term and safe use of the boat for different useage?, says managing director Jari Ahoranta at Modius Ab.
The new boat brand is built in high class marine aluminium. The Modius 'best of both world's' concept is developed from the high performance demands required by professional boat operators, coupled with a pleasure boat's design and finesse. The first model in the series, Modius 34, will be built during the winter 2014-2015 with a first premiere at the Helsinki International Boat Show in February, 2015.
The new boat has been designed by Kamu Str?hlmann, of Str?hlmann Yacht Design, and Jan-Erik Lindholm, of R&D Marine Ltd. The hulls will be made by Weldmec Ab, with experience from more than 300 professional boats worldwide. The interior has been made by Design Manager Ville Lindstr?m, Design KURI and installations are made by boat builder Fille Forsman, Modius Ab, together with boat builder and consultant John Stenberg, John Stenberg Marine Ab.
The boats will be classified for CE B (Offshore). They are equipped with 2 x 260hp with Yanmar sterndrives 6BY3-260Z.
