New Model: Rose Island 43 Lobster

Unveiled during the Rose Island Day held at the Genoa Airport Marina the past May, the new 43 Lobster has been a waited model from this builder who was among the first of the Italian builders to produce Traditional down East looking lobster boats back in 2000. The new 43 Lobster sits well in between the long living 38 and 49 models, and is a two cabin with two en suite heads Traditional Cruiser. The owners suite to fore has also a much sought but hard to find separate shower and toilet room. The main deck covered by the hard top of the super structure is the place for the living area with the helm station to fore being joined by a C-shaped dinette for six persons, and a unit with a pop up TV and a disappearing galley. Drawers in the 43 Lobster will also reflect a sea keeping quality with the element of safety similar to that found on long range and sail type boats. Finishing for the interior areas is with solid Pink Cedar, Kaya Mahogany, and Maple hard woods. Power for the 43 Lobster is from twin Fiat Power Train 450hp which should give a 30 knots top speed, and a 500 NM range at the most efficient hull speed. Official presentation for the 43 Lobster will now move to the up coming Genoa and Cannes show held respectively in September and October.
