Project: Fjord 56 Open

Fjord presents the project of the 56 Open, which follows on the modern angular lines of the smaller 36 and 40 models, with the benefit of the larger size giving huge advantages and marrying day boat practicality to yacht accommodation.  Designed as the smaller new Fjord's by Allseas the 56 Open  will be a fully walk around sports yacht, with huge space dedicated for outside entertainment.  Aft sun lounger, three opposites looking settees, exterior wet bar galley, and center console are what makes the main living area outside with only two steps dividing the fore from the aft deck, and here is also space for another sun pad.    Fjord says the new 56 Open, which was actually born as a 54 project, will sleep six, but so far no details are given for the interior layout.  Standard power is twin Volvo 435hp with IPS pods, with the alternative of three units of the same engine and propulsion being available.  Speed estimates are max of 45 knots.
