New Model: Storm X-53

It is that the Dutch boat builders are on the upswing of things in recent times. Storm Yachts a new brand founded in 2010 is a testimony to this.  The X-53 is its first launch but will soon be followed by two other models currently under construction.  The first X-53 was an F series a letter which stands for France, as this model features a lower profile versus the standard 53 making it easier for river use. The Storm X-53 features a semi displacement Storm Yacht patented hull shape name FDFH, which is suitable for both river and sea cruising.  Her standard interior is a two cabin layout, with a galley below, and a saloon on the main deck. The owners cabin is located forward. Power is twin Perkins 150hp or optional 300hp.
