Lancia's First Powerboat is Powered by FPT

Like a car, a boat distinguishes its owner.

Lancia’s association with the sea dates back many years and involves sailing as well as powered boating. From the Flaminia class speed boats of the 1960s to the Monaco Classic Week 2009.

Now, Lancia’s first powerboat is making its debut in Venice, a city where roads and cars are replaced by canals an lance as the Venetians call their boats.

Designed by Christian Grande and built by Sacs S.r.l., the new powerboat has "an aggressive yet balanced profile, with a perfectly proportioned bow, cockpit and stern." The fiberglass hull measures 13,1 m in length and has a beam of 3,8 m. A draft of only 0,80 m permits navigation even in shallow waters.

The boat is powered by two 560 hp FPT N67-560 diesel engines from Fiat Powertrain Technologies. A weight to power ratio of about 7.5 kg/HP establishes the boat as one of the most powerful available. It has a maximum cruising speed of 55 kn.

FPT - Fiat Powertrain Technologies is the Fiat Group company specialising in the R&D, production and sale of engines and transmissions for automotive, industrial, marine, power generation and railway applications.

The FPT engine range spans 20 to 1020 HP, and displacements from 1 l to 20 l.
