“Motorboat & Yachting” writes: “The 1200 FLY is a very self-assured piece of work. It comes with outstanding storage, extraordinary reserves of headroom, great light down below, excellent refinement underway and for the most part, a very impressive level of finish. The fact that it adds another deck’s worth of days space to the award-winning 1200 while actually improving the aesthetics also makes it much more appealing to coastal boaters.” Choose a “True Escape”.
