Projects: Airon 48 Top Class, Airon 53 Top Class

Airon Marine presents two important project models aimed to upgrade its line to bigger sizes and more important ambitions. The first of these is the 48 Top Class, upgrading its size by one foot, from the current flagship the A47. My thinking is that the 48 Top Class is also a replacement to the long standing A47. Similar in lines to the latest models like 4300 T-Top and 400 T-Top, the new 48 Top Class continues the requested hard top accessory, offering an all weather protected main deck. If the plans are true to the facts, the 48 Top Class seems to offer very spacious environments, with a big cockpit offering 2 settees, a galley, and helm station. Below accommodation is for two layouts. Version 1 is a 3 cabin 2 head plan, with full beam owners cabin, VIP to fore, and a bunk double cabin to starboard. Version two will give a C-shaped saloon settee in replacement to the third cabin. The 48 Top Class is also interesting for offering double areas, like two c-shaped settees in the cockpit, and two galleys one up top and the other below. Engines and propulsion have so far not been announced. The 53 Top Class is the second of Airon Marine project models, taking the lake Como builder to a new flagship yacht size of 53 feet. What will surprise most to the interested in the new 53 Top Class is the three different interior options, offering a huge amount of choice to the buyer. Something unusual in this size. Version one is a 2 cabin layout, full beam owners, VIP to fore, c-shaped settee saloon to port, and a small galley. Version two very different to the rest goes to a classic plan with owner cabin to fore, 2 sister guest cabins mid ship, c-shaped settee, galley, and a crew cabin. Version three is similar to one with a bunk double cabin taking the place of the saloon settee. Propulsion and engines are Volvo Penta second generation IPS 900 and 800, forward looking pod drives.
