New Model: Portofino 57 Fly

A flagship is always an important launch from a builder, and Italian Portofino extends its size by ten feet by presenting its new 57 Fly.  With the 57 Fly, Portofino ignores most of the latest fashion trends in flybridge yachts of this size and follows the themes which have been the signature of its success; a smart modern motor yacht with plenty of traditional accents which echo a timeless line.  But the 57 Fly does not stop its tradition on the outside but also in the inside with a plan which conceives three cabins in a classic layout; master room to fore, and two double cabins at amidships.  The living main saloon offers a smart single level area having opposite saloon and dining table, with a galley as it was standard a few years ago located in a separate lower level area to starboard.  Another interesting feature of the 57 Fly is its flybridge which offers a layout as if coming from a sportfish with a C-shaped settee to fore, helm console to starboard, and an L-shaped wetbar to aft. Tender space is located in a garage which opens the beach platform when at anchor.  Power choice is standard MAN 800hp, or optional Volvo 700 units with IPS pods propulsion.
