New Model: Austin Parker 64 Fly

Born as a 62 Fly project, the Austin Parker 64 completes the range in the upper sizes of this Italian builder.  Second in size only to the Austin Parker 72, the new 64 Fly continues the elaboration of the line as a modern lobster boat, as seen by renowned Italian architect Fulvio de Simoni.  Unlike the smaller models the large Austin Parkers look as much a motor yacht as they do traditional down East lobster boat and this theme is continued in the 64 Fly.  So if you think that some motor yacht have become to modern a tip is to have a look at the large Austin Parkers.  Accommodation the 64 Fly offers three large double cabins, with an owners stateroom located amidships.  The VIP suite located to fore is also very spacious thanks to the angled berth resting on the port sides. A third double cabin and a day head are located in between the two cabins.  A crew cabin with a single berth, shower head, and a desk space is located to amidships in between the owners cabins and the engine room. A split level saloon features a lounging sofa on entrance, and a dining and galley located on the fore part behind the helm station to starboard.  Power is twin MAN 1200hp engines with a top speed of 32 knots.
