The Cantieri Navali Cerri proposes a new concept of the theme of large size "Coupé" with the Cerri 86' Flying Sport, a yacht that combines classic coupé lines with a relatively small flying bridge, just large enough for the external wheelhouse and a generous sunbathing area.

On deck solutions have been adopted such as the circular dinette in the bows and the dining/relaxation zone in the cockpit, where there is also another cushioned sunbathing area. The interiors are the result of carefully studied design combined with configurations purposely chosen with on-board comfort in mind. Leaving the cockpit you pass through a real lobby to reach the two different decks. The lower one has been fitted out with a leisure zone furnished with sofas, coffee tables and multi-media systems, while the upper level is organised for dining with a table seating twelve. The bows area of this deck is dedicated to the internal wheelhouse, where we also find the galley. The sleeping area comprises six cabins with private bathrooms sleeping a total of 15 people including the crew, who have their own separate area.

Building of this super-yacht was supervised and developed by Carlo Cerri, who decided to equip the 86' Flying Sport with numerous new-generation electronic aids to improve comfort on board and safety when sailing. In rooms created using the best materials available on the market, we find top quality multi-media systems, in addition to a large quantity of navigation instrumentation. The yard's official performance figures give a maximum speed of 42 knots and cruising at over 35 knots, made possible thanks to the sporting waterlines of the boat's bottom, its two Mtu 2,000Hp engines and Arneson Drive ASD 16 transmissions with surface propellers.
