Updates include a new, deep-vee hull, additional seating and a pilothouse with a sliding sunroof, sliders to port and starboard, and more overhang aft for increased protection in the cockpit.

Zeelander said in a statement that more than half of its orders are for the flagship Z72, which debuted worldwide last summer.
