New Model: Alen 55

Alen is a pretty new brand in the yachting panorama which appeared in the scene with its fast large 42 tender model in 2009.  Now in the fall of 2013 the company presented its second model the 55, with a 68 currently in project stage.  The new Alen 55 is a walk around sport cruiser with its main customer being the large tender or day runabout market.  Still the Alen 55 prides itself for offering two lower deck layouts with two or four berths plan being available.  The first lower deck plan is pure tender day-boat, with a large V-shaped settee; two shower heads and a crew cabin.  The second layout which is more cruiser friendly offers a forward master cabin, a saloon with sofa, a cabin amidships with two berths, and a shower head.  Power is twin Volvo 800hp with max speed up to 35 knots.
