Creating a new brand is always a big mission. Good thing the new Iliads are up to the task. This is the very first of the new Iliad 50 powercats. She will be joined by her Iliad 70 sister, very soon, for she just splashed recently. They have commenced work on the new 60, and the new 90 will be around next year, along with plenty more of her smaller siblings. In the meantime, please watch our video to see what it is like to be on board the quiet, long-range cruiser.
