Luxury On The Lakes

Published: Friday, June 14, 2019

When Danalevi Powerboats put its first prototype in the water in 2014, the expectations were high. The same was true for its new model, the 2019 Furina 24. This time, we would say expectations were exceeded. An initial glance at the unique lines and art deco details of this custom powerboat will take you back to the 1930s.

Once onboard, you can see that the builder considered more than appearances. Her arrangement is well thought out, and the 24-foot powerboat fits five people comfortably. The luxury interior meets practicality with a surprising amount of dry storage. Since a day on the lakes requires good food and libations, a cockpit tabletop pops up, then stows away.

The helm is perfectly arranged with all controls at your fingertips including the glass cockpit touchscreen for navigation data and engine stats. The steering wheel is adjustable to get the right angle sitting or standing. The retro details of the dash and iconic bow light are undeniable, which tie into the classic look of this unique boat.

At the stern, an optional extended swim platform offers even more deck space and recessed steps. The sun lounge has comfortable cushions with headrests for catching some rays. If the sun gets too hot, relax in the shade under a very cool canopy.

Danalevi offers two superior engine brands to choose from, Volvo Penta and Ilmor Marine. The Furina 24 comes standard with the Volvo Penta V8 350 horsepower engine, with options up to 430 horsepower. With the performance engines and the stepped V-hull, passengers will enjoy the additional speed while you appreciate the fuel efficiency.

There's an assortment of options available for clients – refined upholstery, exterior color, entertainment, lighting, forward cabin, remote windlass, jet thrusters – making this custom luxury powerboat perfect for our Great Lakes. Find out more at
