Project: Aqualum 55

Argentine builder Aqualum, after presenting two successful flybridge motor cruisers of 35 and 43 feet, continue to upgrade its range, this time entering in the over 50 plus feet motor yacht territory. With the new 55, Aqualum present a modern flybridge motor yacht, with an Italian Mediterranean design flare to its lines, also offering alternative layouts for the lower deck especially to what regards the cabin numbers. The Aqualum 55 is in fact offered in 3 different lower deck versions: layout 1 offers 3 cabins with the much requested full beam owners cabin with ensuite head VIP cabin to fore guest cabin with bunk beds in between and guest head, layout 2 is a similar plan accept for the master cabin where the en-suite head gets bigger with a bidet and a separate shower stall to starboard, layout 3 get a completely different layout offering a 4 cabin 2 head version with master cabin to fore and the fourth cabin in bunks, what can be an ideal big family or charter business solution. On the main split level saloon deck, the layout is somehow also a bit different to what the competition offers. The lower aft part here offers the galley located at stern to starboard, allowing easy communication with the exterior aft deck, with the upper fore area having the l-shaped settee with dining table to port, and to starboard the helm station. On the fly we have a traditional u-shaped settee, with a sunpad aft plan but also here Aqualum left a free space where a moving deck chair can be placed. Power to push the 26 ton 55 will be from twin 800hp engines, with speed figures so far not announced.
