Projects: O.B.P. S55 Granturismo, O.B.P. S55 HT Granturismo

OBP Sport Fisherman Yacht from Rome, Italy continue to present new projects set to increase its range, which so far has only one model in the water. But company has a total of eight models in design rendering project stages with the 55 being one of them. The 55 will be available in three versions and here we present the more sport yacht orientated S55 Granturismo. The lines of the 55 continue the inspiration we saw on the 35 with a very flared bow and an aggressive reverse shear line making part of the unusual but catchy looks. Inside the S55 Granturismo will have a choice of two layouts; four cabins with three heads, or three cabins with a galley and saloon located below. Outside is a spacious twin level area with the lower aft part having two C-shaped settees, and the three steps raised part which also hard top covered having an a galley, large C-shaped settee,and three seats helm station. Power will be for up to twin 1200hp engines, with the AX-BOW-EVO hull giving very solid sea keeping characteristics. The O.B.P. S55 HT Granturismo follows the design of the standard S55, with the advantage of having a fully enclosed hard top main deck. The more forward raised area is closed by a patio door, this giving an all weather seasonal use to the S55 HT Grantusimo. Power and interior layouts are all the same; with a three or four cabins interior choice, and engine power up to twin 1200hp.
