Project: Solaria 54

New name old roots! Solaria is a new builder from Naples Italy, founded by Giuseppe Cimino who will go to the 2016 Cannes boat show with two new models a 40 and 54.  Cimino is known for founding Conam; Costruzioni Navali Mediterraneo in the 1980s, a company he sold in around 2006 to Rodriguez Group which then was liquidated in 2010.  The above 54 is Solaria second model, with a 40 currently under going sea trials.  Both models still show Cimino innovative spirit, and this new 54 aims to merge walk around day boat features with that of a full yacht.  The Solaria 54 will feature a three double cabin interior, plus a crew cabin.  Speeds are estimated at a max of 35 knots with twin Volvo 900hp engines and IPS pod drives propulsion.
