The NGC3447/NGC3447A system is a member of the LGG 225 group, a nearby LGA. This system is considered a physical pair composed of an intermediate-luminosity late-type spiral, NGC3447 itself, and an irregular companion, NGC3447A, linked by a faint, short filament of matter. A ring-like structure in the NGC3447 outskirts has been emphasised by Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) observations. This work aims to contribute to the study of galaxy evolution in low-density environments, a favourable habitat to highly effective encounters, shedding light on the evolution of the NGC3447/NGC3447A system. We performed a multi-λ analysis of the surface photometry of this system to derive its spectral energy distribution and structural properties using ultraviolet (UV), Swift UVOT, and optical Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) images complemented with available far-IR observations. We also characterised the velocity field of the pair using two-dimensional Hα kinematical observations of the system obtained with PUMA Fabry-Perot interferometer at the 2.1m telescope of San Pedro Martir (Mexico). All these data are used to constrain smooth particle hydrodynamic simulations with chemo-photometric implementation to shed light on the evolution of this system. The luminosity profiles, from UV to optical wavelengths, are all consistent with the presence of a disc extending and including NGC3447A. The overall velocity field does not emphasise any significant rotation pattern, rather a small velocity gradient between NGC3447 and NGC3447A. Our simulation, detached from a large grid explored to best-fit the global properties of the system, suggests that this arises from an encounter between two halos of equal mass. Description: Observations were carried out with the PUMA Fabry-Perot (FP, hereafter) interferometer at the 2.1m telescope of the Observatorio Astronomico Nacional at San Pedro Martir (OAN-SPM) Baja California, Mexico, (PUMA@2.1-mSPM) on March 13, 2013. The PUMA instrument is formed by a Queensgate ET50 etalon in the pupil of a focal reducer with the Marconi2 2Kx2K CCD detector as receptor. Marconi has a physical pixel size of 13um and a scale on the sky of 0.33"/pix. We performed 4x4 spatial binning giving a pixel equivalent of 1.3" on the sky.
