De Antonio D50 Coupé: Crowned Best for Family at the Best of Boat Awards (BOB Awards)

We take pride in our association with the impressive De Antonio D50 Coupé. Which not only won the Best for Family title but also showcased the versatility and aesthetic appeal of Flexiteek’s offerings. The stylish and modern craft is complete with a hydraulic platform, hidden outboard engines and a tender garage. A real highlight is the D50 Coupé’s combination and adaptability of both indoor and outdoor components. For example, with a retractable awning on the roof, this model offers the opportunity to enjoy the sun or offer shade depending on passengers’ needs. It is truly not a surprise how this boat can be seen as the best for families.

This beautiful boat was expertly fitted with Flexiteek 2G in Bleached with White caulking. Flexiteek 2G has a realistic fine-grain finish and adds to the style and function of the boat. The market leading synthetic decking cools 30% faster and is up to 35% lighter than traditional composite decking.
