Specialist galley manufacturers GN Espace is proud that classic boat builder Cornish Crabbers™ has fitted one of the first of their new advanced energy efficient Levante 2 electric cookers with multifunction electric oven. The Levante 2 can be seen on the stunning example of the Cornish Crabber Pilot Cutter 30, which is featuring on the marina at the Southampton Boat Show until 25th September 2022.
The 45cm wide Levante 2 boasts all the electrical efficiency that characterises the GN Espace electric cooker range. It sports a high quality stainless steel finish and is compact while offering a host of features including two induction hobs and Dual Zone bridging functions. The oven, with two anti-tip shelves, has standard and hot air grill as well as hot air and defrost settings.
“Our product development focuses on providing energy efficiency for yachts that are increasingly turning to electric power,” comments GN Espace Managing Director Ralph Olingschlaeger. “The Levante 2 is the perfect fit for the Cornish Crabber Pilot Cutter which is powered almost entirely by electricity fed from an onboard battery bank. Both the cooker and the boat are future-facing and we are proud to be looking at optimising sustainability whilst providing a cutting edge design to enhance the modern galley.
