Project: Austin Parker AP54 Fly

After returning back to the market in 2009, and showing more strength in 2010 with the presentation of three new models Austin Parker opens 2011 with the presentation of the AP54 Fly project. This traditional yacht if these two words actually can describe any Austin Parker is based on the latest new model of the 2010 season, the AP52 Open. As all Austin Parker's the AP54 Fly is designed by Fulvio De Simoni Italproject team who presents traditional down East lobster lines, but with a modern Italian take on the overall concept. I am sure that in no history photos of a down East lobster boat you will find any large glassed windows in the cabins, or a bathing platform for that manner. But for a yacht giving panache and class the lobster touch surely makes everything look elegant with the appreciated timeless attitude and this is basically the success that characterizes these type of yachts. Inside of the AP54 Fly we see the layout of the 52 Open offering three double cabins with two bathrooms, large lounge, separate galley, crew cabin with head, and tender garage aft. The owners room while located to fore gives a space similar to that of a mid ship layout as in fact the AP54 has its maximum beam in this area. Performance is a top speed of 34 knots max coming from twin 900hp MAN engines.
