Estivo 16 Sport
The Estivo 16 Sport was designed for action and adventure with family and friends. The layouts and deck arrangement for this model were designed around easy access to the water. Skiing, tubing, snorkeling, or just family fun while at anchor are the many activities that can be enjoyed with this versatile setup. It is exciting with modest horsepower, extremely easy to trailer and launch anywhere, fast but forgiving, and easy to maintain.
Although the Estivo 16 comes in a small package, the layout feels like a much larger boat. The stern includes two swim platforms that are large enough to house a built-in swim ladder to allow easy access to the boat from the water. Port and starboard aft seats have over-sized cushions that allow a person to recline comfortably and the centerline hatch houses the removable fuel tank.
The center console was carefully designed to provide a stable position to drive the boat while taking up the smallest footprint. It features an integral hand hold, electrical panel, engine gauges, and there is room for a small gps. Forward of the console is two molded bench seats with sloped back rests. The cockpit sole and and deck areas are covered with Esthec decking, a synthetic decking that remains cool under the hot sun and is maintenance free.
The foredeck houses an anchor locker forward and an optional bimini storage compartment. The bimini folds cleanly into the compartment or deploys quickly to cover the bench seating and provide some cover for the driver in poor weather.
The Estivo 16 offers many safety features. It was designed and constructed to ABYC recommendations and Coast Guard regulations including flotation foam properly arranged so that the boat will float at a level condition even when filled with water.
The composite hull and interior is extremely lightweight, yet durable. Construction of the hull is quick and precise using CNC technology to cut the hull panels, frames, stringers, deck, and seating.
