Karnic SL702 Speed Boat

Karnic SL702 Speed Boat

A 26 footer speed boat, Good looking, Tough and built for Low maintenance. 


The SL-702, is currently Hong Kong’s Top Selling Speed Boat. It has been selling strongly since 2017 in Hong Kong, Right after the first SL702 arrived, the boat has been selling by just people looking at it and by word of mouth. The best feature of the boat is definitely it’s layout. The Boat can also be called as a Cabin cruiser or Cuddy boat because it has a forward cabin in the front with a Proper functional Marine Toilet. 

Cabin in the front is Spacious with a Marine toilet which is very very important, and makes this speed boat able to be a weekender and easy to accommodate a small family for over night adventure trips if wanted . This 26 footer speed boat has amazing stern layout that is totally and easily changeable. The forward deck is spacious and has a functional sunbed or just a open deck.

The interior cabin can be a seating area or a double bed to take some rest. The whole stern can be a U shape seating, a huge sunbed, or a smaller seating, depending on how many people you are. And it is as easy as just lifting a cushion.
Makes you wonder why didn’t I think of this idea. This boat is perfect for Hong Kong waters. It does not necessarily need a high powered engine, Although maximum power is recommended to be 225hp engine. A 175hp engine works absolutely fantastic. We had installed a Suzuki 4 stroke 175hp on this boat in Hong Kong. The boat did maximum speed up to 37 knots with 5 persons on board at around 7000 RPM.  At 5000 RPM it is around 25-28 knots depending on the condition of the sea. One of the most impressive things about the boat was its handing. It was incredibly easy to handle, it was moving smoothly not just in high speeds, but in absolute low speed while navigating in the crowded Aberdeen typhoon shelter of Hong Kong. When we took the boat to a fuel station we had to wait in line in one of the most congested area you can imagine with ferries and dinghys and super yachts passing by and going in and out of the club. The SL-702 with minimum skill was stable and well controlled. Very easy to lift up and store it on a dry dock, this boat can be lifted up by all standard lifts and can be stored on standard platforms. This is makes life a lot easier to maintain this boat. The boat comes with lot of options and Bimini tops, and covers, cushions etc. A wonderful Bluetooth hifi system with marine speakers installed give you a super loud music if you like. Good when you are at the beach enjoying a happy sunday.
