Project: Intermarine 55

As announced in the past October month the largest Brazilian pleasure boat builder Intermarine, stops its agreement with Azimut and goes to build its own yacht series. This will be an interesting turn around for Intermarine and also for the Brazilian market who in recent years is showing to be a boom for the yachting industry. Picture above is the first 55 project designed by BMW Group Designworks USA, what will be the first model and is to be launched in middle 2011. Three other models a 60, 75, and 85 designed by different designers should follow in less of a two year period. The new Intermarine 55 project shows dedicated features to the local market as the extended large aft deck, and longer bathing platform. Interior wise a two level saloon welcomes you inside, but here some new features characterize the 55, as the jockey style helm station to starboard, or the three step raised part which for most part is dedicated to a large light filled airy galley. Down below we have the standard today wanted layout with a full beam midship owners stateroom, VIP room to fore, third double guest cabin with in line berths, and second shower head. A crew cabin will be located aft. Power options are for a standard twin 670hp which give an estimated max speed of 31 knots, and 27 of cruise. A faster twin 800hp choice increases wide open throttle speeds and cruising by 4 knots.
