At just over 8 meters in length, the new Silver Raptor is not only the largest of the Silver Z fiberglass range, but also the largest Silver to date. The boat is designed by norwegian design agency Eker Design AS and it builds on Petestep® technology. The bold and shapely hull called for a clean-lined, yet modern interior. We opted for calm, harmonic greytones, details in black and a cool brown colored composite teak deck, which is an environmentally friendly option that has a pleasant feel to it. The end result is a modern and timeless Day Cruiser with a Scandinavian touch that suits a wide array of boaters.
Driving the Silver Raptor is a comfortable yet striking experience. Thanks to the Petestep® hull the interior remains very dry from seasprays at the same time as it makes the boat stable and consistent to drive. The sleek windscreen that continues far along the stern sides gives substantial shelter from airflow for the whole cockpit, and the driver has good visibility in all conditions. The driver’s windscreen has been fitted with an integrated defogging feature. An automatic Zipwake trim-control system is included in the standard price, making boating both effortless and fun, no matter the weather conditions. The steering console has been designed not only with style, but especially with ergonomics in mind. The instrument panel includes both a Raymarine Axiom display/chartplotter and space for a separate tablet.
