New Model: Tornado 50

Tornado presents its new important flagship the 50 Classic, a big fully open sport yacht. The new big Tornado takes similar characteristics of its most successful model, the 38 and puts them in a fifteen meter size. But Tornado and head designer Franceso Guida did not only follow outside lines but also the practical elements, and the economic way of the entry level Tornado. Lets say the economic ways of building and running the 38 are all part of the new 50 Classic. That means not only Classic for looks but also the running and a more simple way of going on the water. Tornado does also not exaggerate on the accommodation front by keeping sleek lines a fundamental characteristic to this new flagship. Down below space is a two cabins, with an owners room to fore, a twin berth cabin to mid ship, a convertible dinette which adds two extra berths, and a head with separate shower room. A well spaced airy L-shaped galley just opposite the saloon completes the lower deck. Power is to be from twin Volvo 435hp with IPS pods which give a fast 37 knots top speed.
