A centrally located engine inside the hull makes for ideal weight distribution, translating into a smooth, level ride – even at high speeds. Replacing the rudder with thrust is not only a breakthrough in technical and physical design, it also opens up access to shallow areas or even beach landings with no risk of damage to the drive. And with the Agilis 560D, we’re taking the game to a whole new level – with an electronically activated hydraulic reverse gate. Now, low-speed cruising and reverse drive can be achieved simply by pressing a button. The engine is whisper quiet, thanks to the fully insulated, electronic engine hatch. You practically cannot hear it. Finally, with two batteries – one for the engine, one for the electrical equipment – the only type of stranded you’ll ever know will be on a beach of your choosing.
