First Abarth Powerboat Detailed

After Lancia unveiled its first powerboat in Venice some three weeks ago, Fiat’s in-house tuner Abarth enters powerboat racing with its first Powershore boat. The new watercraft from Abarth is based on the Sacs Strider 12S and is named Powershore Abarth SP (Sport Prototype).

According to the tuner, the powerboat delivers sensations similar to the acceleration and speed of a racing car or bike on dry land. That also thanks to the three 350 horsepower Yamaha V8 outboard engines, specially built for this exclusive version.

Christian Grande, the same designer as of the original “Strider 12S”, has come up with this assertive new version with the help of the FGA Style Centre.

“Special graphics combine with out-and-out racing motifs to enhance every aspect of the Powershore, from the deck to the interior, driving seats, stowage compartments, controls and dashboard,” the company said in a statement.

The Abarth tuned version is combined with the Yamaha engines, just as on the Yamaha FZ1 Abarth Assetto Corse concept bike.

“This factory-finished product tuned using components in true Abarth style will allow enthusiasts to own a unique and totally uncompromising machine,” the company added.
