Project: Rose Island 43 Lobster

In so difficult global economic conditions Italian builder Rose Island decides to continue its expansion plans, by presenting the 43 Lobster next project of its Traditional boat range standing in between the long standing 38 and 49 models. Once again Rose Island continues to bet on young designer Marino Alfani, who continues the philosophy which has gave Rose Island so much fortune. Seeing the rendering of this new 43 Lobster project we cannot not notice the classic fashion and timeless elegance which has always been the half part of this builders DNA, with the other being sea keeping, low fuel consumption, long range and performance. In this new 43 Lobster great importance is being given to spacious areas outside and inside. Outside this is easily visible thanks to the superior extended cockpit aft, wide decks, and spacious sunbed on the forward deck. Down below the more space theme continues thanks to the two owner and VIP cabins, both with private en-suite heads. Worth to note and also unusual for a boat of this type and size is the double owners heads. Impressive is also the data, like the estimated performance top speed of 32 knots, with not so big twin 450hp FPT engines pushing this 13 tons cruiser, but also the 2000 litres fuel tank which shows when Rose Island speaks of range it is talking business. Constructed to CE A category and hand crafted, Rose Island owner Engineer Fabio Rosa is a firm believer of two quality visions in boat building: the visible one which is what you can see and touch and the hidden construction standard which he says is impeccable for his jewels.
