Outline

242 Limited S is a sport boat that caters to not only cruising but towing and relaxing at anchor. With a brand-new hull and a movable keel, the boat has greatl handling performance/maneuverability at low speed, combined with stability when traveling straight. It also manages to reduce noise/vibration by using optimized materials. Adoption of a jet propulsion system allows a swimming platform to be placed closer to water surface, which gives users easier access to the water. Also, its luxurious lounge seats and stately driver seat are designed to offer users comfort and satisfaction.
