Sōlace Boats used the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show to unveil its 415CS center console, which has a fully integrated Volvo Penta propulsion system with twin D6-440 diesel Aquamatic DPI inboards.
According to the builder, the power plants and hull design allow for a range of 490 miles with a standard 444-gallon fuel tank.
“The new 415CS is the result of a close collaboration between Solace and Volvo Penta design and engineering teams,” Todd Albrecht, president of Sōlace Boats, stated in a press release. “We wanted to solve some commonly seen missed opportunities within the center console market like increased versatility with the transom, extended range, less fueling time at the dock, quieter cruise, improved maneuverability and more.”
The 415CS comes with a five-year warranty, active corrosion protection, joystick driving and docking, and a dynamic positioning system that are all part of Volvo Penta’s electronic vessel control system. Features include Volvo Penta interceptors with active ride control, an automatic trim and list system, and coordinated turn control.
There’s also a suite of Garmin electronics, such as a Glass Cockpit multifunction display with Garmin Surround View.
The companies see the 415CS as a standalone boat or a tender for superyachts. Non-propulsion features include a carbon-fiber superstructure, a dive door with integrated stairs, an opening electric windshield, and an air-conditioned cabin with an enclosed shower and head.
When will the Sōlace 415CS become widely available? Look for the model to go into full production in the first quarter of 2022.
