Project: Fiart 52

Fiart showcase the project for a new 52 model, set to be launched in September 2016 and presented in Cannes boat show during the same month.  The 52 when launched is to be the second in size for Fiart which today starts at 33 feet and ends with the 58 Epica flagship.  The South Italy Neapolitan builder sees the 52 as a challenge to itself and to the market, and rightly so since Fiart has been known in Italy for making the perfect family sport cruiser for the Summer Mediterranean sea with classic models as the 35 and 40 Genius always having an important market share from the eighties up till today.  Accommodation layout offers a three double cabin interior, and for the first time Fiart makes a fully enclosed main deck which when desired can become fully open thanks to a vanishing patio door system.  As technical details go the 52 will have a complete new hull dedicated to the length, weight and propulsion of the sport yacht with a Vee shape featuring a 27 degrees angle at midships which closes to a medium 15 aft. Propulsion wise the 52 will use IPS pod drives as featured in three other Fiart models; 58 Epica, 4Seven Genius, 4TFour Genius.  Fair note that Fiart has been among the first using IPS offering it as option on its 50 Genius flagship back in 2006, and after this going to fully dedicated models.  Power wise the 52 will use twin Volvo 600hp or optional 725hp units coupled to IPS pods drives with a project estimated top speed of 37 knots with the largest engine choice.
