Projects: Cayman 55 HT, Cayman 65 HT

After presenting its new 75 HT flagship, Italian Cayman yachts continue to expand its range, with two new projects. Both of these two new Cayman Yachts are part of the HT range designed by Carlo Trezzi which takes a lot from the new 75 HT flagship launched in 2008, with similar looks outside. Pictured above is the 55 HT smaller of the two projects, both of which scheduled for launching later on this year. As for the new Cayman HT models, the new 55 follows the concept for an open fly boat, meaning to have features for both worlds in an enclosed hard top Sport Yacht, but still offering aft deck spaces and an upper saloon as a flybridge boat would have. The accommodation plan in fact shows all this solutions in the upper deck with galley and entertainment places all situated up top, and the lower deck reserved for a 3 cabins 2 heads layout with a full beam master cabin. Having an LOA of over 18 metres and a beam just short to five metres, the Cayman 55 HT should reach top speeds in the 35/34 knots region with a 30 knots cruising thanks to modest power coming from twin MAN 900hp engines.
The other project from Cayman Yachts is the new 65 HT, and will be the second model in size dimension for the Italian builder. Also designed by Carlo Trezzi, with the ever input from Cayman Yachts boss Luigi Prosperi the 65 HT wants to put the experience of the 75 HT in a slightly smaller package. So basically as the 55 and 75 HT it follows the concept of a hardtop Sport Yachts with living spaces on the main deck as a flybridge boat would be. Measuring an overall length of 21 metres with a beam of over six metres it will offer an accommodation plan of 3 guest cabins all with private heads. There is also the option for a crew berth located to fore with private head. The new Cayman wants also to offer an easy up and down lift choice for the tender with a high low bathing platform as standard. Cayman 65 HT can be powered by twin 1360hp or the bigger optional 1550hp MAN engines. With the bigger choice Cayman Yachts is estimating speeds up to 37 knots.
