New Model: Sogica 47 Openbridge

Sogica presented the 47 Openbridge second model in its range during the Naples boat show the past March, following the instant recognition it received with the 55 Openbridge in 2006. While similar on the looks department and in concept to its first model, Sogica new smaller Openbridge has a major important difference that is regarding its propulsion and engines with this new model choosing Volvo IPS pod drives. The new fifteen metre Sogica, continues the Openbridge concept with a very Mediterranean cockpit, but a fully enclosed hard top upper saloon plan. Down below is reserved for the accommodation and is available in two versions. Full beam owners cabin with private en-suite, VIP cabin forward, guest head, galley and saloon. The other possible layout is to have a bunk third cabin replacing the saloon. Performance levels for the 47 Openbridge with twin Volvo IPS600 at 435hp each while not super fast as the bigger 55 are also very respectful achieving a 35 knots top speed and 29 knots of cruise.
