New Model: Unica 50

 
 
It's been a long time coming for the Naples, Italian based builder Unica to presents its second model the 50, and now finally in 2011 it has arrived.  The new big Unica, just as the smaller 42 is a design of the famous Brunello Acampora's Victory studio who for the 50 presented a hull of open boat inspiration but without forgetting pure cruiser roots both inside and outside.  The Unica 50 surprises for many aspects of its construction, from the spaces above and below decks, and a high technological Kevlar construction.  The standard interior plan offers a three cabins layout, with an owners suite to fore, C-shaped saloon, L-shaped galley, and a second guest head.  An important is that the interior can all but be personalized as it features no structural moulds, meaning that in the construction process the Unica team have quite a big liberty to modify the layout of same.  Power for the Unica 50 comes from standard Volvo 435hp in IPS pods which give a 36 knots max speed, and 30 knots not only thanks to the efficiency of the propulsion, but also the high tech construction which weighs the Unica at just fourteen tons with these engines.  Alternative is for a high performance twin MAN 800hp engines, with the Award winning Flexidrive surface drives being available.
