New Model: Intermarine 53

Another important step for Intermarine which with the new 53 designed by Fernando de Almeida attacks a very important size in the market.  The 53 was presented by Intermarine at the final 2011 Soa Poalo boat show, along with another important novelty the 65.  Including the 53, Intermarine in a space of one year has launched five models of the new line, the others being; 42, 60, 65, and 75.  A 55, and the 85 flagship are currently in the making. Designed by architect Fernando de Almeida, the 53 continues Intermarine evolution of modern European lines outside, with original large view windows in both the main and lower decks. As is expected Intermarine 53 pursues the usual features of the Brazilian company, larger to the usual in similar size bathing platform, aft deck, and no mullions windshield.  Inside the architect went for a modern, yet sober layout with a single step only split level saloon separating relaxing areas in the welcoming settee, and small day galley, and helm in the forward part.  Surprisingly below we have another more spacious L-shaped galley, located in between the three double cabins, and two shower heads.  The owners room is located to fore and features an en-suite bathroom.  A single bed crew cabin with shower head is located to aft.   Power is from twin Volvos 670hp with top speeds up to 31 knots.
