De Antonio’s D33 Cruiser is Modest Luxury Afloat

In 2012, new Spanish shipwright company De Antonio set out to create motor boats that displayed a simplicity and no-frills approach to their design, but with modern lines and quality components, resulting in a collection of elegant vessels not yet witnessed by the boating community. In the short time since, the Barcelona-based boat builders have carved a name out for themselves as a bunch of señors (and señoritas) who know how to work within the design restrictions of a smaller vessel size, but somehow manage to deliver the perfect balance between necessity and luxury – and the D33 is no different.

With the tagline ‘for you and yours’, the D33 measures in at just under ten metres long, and still manages to boast two cabins, a fully functional kitchen, bathroom, sound system and an on-deck shower, amongst a few other little creature comforts, as well as a plethora of optional add-ons to customise it your way. What’s so great about this approach is that it completely breaks free from traditional boat-design, and the resulting cruiser is genuinely unique and quite striking to look at, as well as being practical. Starting at around $250 000 USD, it’s probably out of a school boy’s budget but, compared with other gaudy and lacklustre cruisers on the market, it’s not too pricey at all if making a statement on the harbour is what floats your boat.
