Bonadeo 227 WA

The Bonadeo 37 is a true custom offering blending classic looks with modern technology. Aesthetically pleasing colors mixed with rich woodwork above deck instantly take you back to days when hands built boats, not machines. The clean lines conceal six insulated storage compartments, two of which are designed to house 13-gallon trashcans. A supple helm seat opens to reveal a wet bar complete with granite counter top, bamboo cutting boards and an under-mounted stainless sink. Below this is a serious tackle center loaded with storage and Plano boxes. The low profile console maintains an outstanding line of sight while running and provides a sealed electronics compartment—a powerful stereo is also concealed and protected. Inside the helm console is an oversized queen V-berth with exotic hardwood interior, A/C, microwave, TV, sink and head. The traditional appearance hides the ultra-modern composite construction of Kevlar®, carbon fiber and structural foam cores. In addition, Wi-Fi and a vessel-specific app allow full-system monitoring and control from your smart phone or tablet both on and off the vessel—check pumps, lighting and other systems from off the boat including turning the A/C on and off. This system is topped off with remote control battery switches and remote start. Powered by triple Mercury Marine 300-hp Verado outboard engines, the 37 runs to a top speed of 60 mph.
