A new kind of day cruiser suitable for comfortable weekend and day trips. The boat is built on the new Smart Speed concept to create maximum comfort for all aboard at all speeds. Design and function are optimized for social activities and entertaining aboard. 305 Drophead is an open day cruiser and built on the same platform as the award-winning 305 Coupé. This means stylistically pure Scandinavian design focused on the simplicity of usage and clever functional solutions.

Smart Speed features a hull designed for comfortable ride at speeds from 0 to 22 knots. The hull has no distinct planing threshold and runs with good fuel economy at all speeds. Speed can be adapted to sea conditions, and this means higher safety, better comfort and the best possible way to experience the surrounding scenery. As it’s sister, the 305 Coupé, the boat can be fitted with the electric engine from Torqeedo.
– ‘Some people like to drive fast when they’re at the helm, but very few like it when traveling too fast at sea.

The central idea of this model is for all those aboard to enjoy themselves and socialize during the trip and under the open sky,’ said Joacim Gustavsson.
