The 500 Sport Coupe is the creation of yacht-design studio Nuvolari-Lenard of Venice, Italy. Her bold lines, mega yacht style interior and impressive triple-IPS power offer something truly different from most domestic motoryachts her size. Built on a semi-V hull with a solid fiberglass bottom and moderate beam, perhaps the most innovative feature of the 500 SC is what Marquis calls a “sliding transom,” that glides aft with a push of a button to create additional cockpit space. The well appointed interior features dark Zebrano wood, black counters, and cherry flooring throughout. Below, the three-stateroom, two head layout includes a forward master suite with en suite head, VIP queen to port, and twin single berths in the second guest cabin. Note that the galley, salon, cockpit, and swim platform are all on the same level, a feature quickly appreciated when the aft salon doors are opened to unite the areas. The hydraulic swim platform makes lowering the tender in and out of the water an easy task.
