Project: Tornado 50

It is very unusual for someone to promote a boat upside down showing what is often called by the experts the living hull part! The Italian boat builder Tornado returns in the so called yacht size of over fifty feet with the 50 project, set to launch this year. The Tornado 50 is a step towards a bigger size from this Italian Rome builder, who wants with this project to put more spaces but keeping in line with the successful elements which its client enjoy, like a classic line and propulsion efficiency. Tornado is in fact promising a lot of features coming from the 38, which this builder so far delivered in over four hundred units. The 50 will surely offer more generous spaces, although cabin numbers or layout have so far not been called for. But what the yard is promising is a deep Vee hull typical of US powerboat derivation with a fine entry and an infamous bell shaped keel aft. Engines and propulsion will be Volvo IPS which guarantee a maximum efficiency and minimum space put to better use for the comfort onboard.
