Drop-Top Yacht

Drop-Top Yacht

Retractable hardtops have successfully equipped the automotive industry for decades… so why not the boating industry? Reversys Boat was designed from the inside out, using one mechanism to control three different positions to provide security, comfort and protection from the elements when closed… or fun in the sun when open. This modern tech creates an interesting contrast with the craft’s back-set cockpit, radical proportions and overall classic styling reminiscent of North American racers of the 1920s.
