AMT 190 R – Now also with aluminium hull

Earlier this year AMT launched its new, peppy center console boat – the AMT 190 R. As of season 2019 the 190 R is also available with a durable aluminium hull. The interior and standard equipment level are identical to the fiberglass model. The first ever AMT 190 R aluminium model will be showcased at the Honda E-pier on the Helsinki Boat-afloat show 16.–19.8.2018.

In february 2018 AMT-Veneet Oy revealed its new center console boat model, the AMT 190 R, at the Helsinki indoor boat show. The smoothly running hull, reasonably designed, spacious interior and plenty of free space to move around during embarking/debarking and fishing are some of the 190 R’s biggest assets. In early spring AMT and Juha Snell Oy, who designs and manufactures pure aluminum boats under the Faster trademark, once again found themselves around the same drawing board*, and the end result is the sturdy and durable AMT 190 R aluminium. The boat has been thoroughly tested during the summer and is now ready to be unveiled to the public.

The AMT 190 R aluminium drives both consistently and well-balanced, but the driving experience still leaves a grin on your face. It’s thrilling yet feels extremely safe in all conditions. Thanks to the durable aluminium hull beaching on rocky shores is even more carefree than before. Concerning driving features, no major differences have been perceived between the aluminium and the fiberglass 190 R models – i.e. both models run smoothly in the water, effectively cutting through the waves. As with the sister model, AMT 175 BR aluminium, the aluminium hull for 190 R is sold as an additional accessory on boats ordered directly from the production line.

The standard accessory level of both 190 R models is extensive, and the models include as standard not only the mandatory boating equipment (mooring lines, anchor and anchor line, fenders, paddle) but also e.g. a 9-inch Raymarine Axiom chartplotter/display with a CPT-S transducer, an Abloy lock set for the storage units, the bow and stern cushions, hydraulic steering, a canopy storage compartment and an electric bilge pump. The integrated fuel tank holds 100 liters.

*) In the spring of 2018 AMT launched the first ever AMT model with aluminum hull, the AMT 175 BR aluminium. Both the 175 BR aluminium and the new 190 R aluminium are built on aluminium hulls manufactured by Finnish boat builder Juha Snell Oy. The assembly of the aluminium hull and the fiberglass interior, as well as all equipment installations and finishing touches, are made at the AMT factories in Kontiolahti, Finland.
