New Model: Fiart 52

After launching an important flagship in 2011 with the 58 Epica, Fiart returns with a new product over fifteen meters by presenting its third ever model above this size the new 52. For someone who pioneered glass fiber construction in Europe, Fiart has always been conservative going into larger sizes possibly because of the successful sales turnout in the medium ten to fourteen meter it always enjoyed. Interestingly with the new 52 we see Fiart embrace the future, modern looks formerly unseen from the Italian Naples located builder, a shorter fore deck which allow more space to the accommodation area of the main deck, and also a first in the cabin plan having a full beam midships owners room.  Fit for purpose should be words showing why Fiart choose a short fore deck, since the 52 offers a saloon with double dinette layout on the main deck; interior and outside, plus an aft sun-pad with a tender garage underneath. Yes the 52 also features a disappearing patio door which joins to the two dinettes into one.  Accommodation plan is also spacious on the Fiart 52 thanks to the use of IPS pod drives and careful planning which sees three double cabins of which is also a full beam midships owners room, two heads, and an L-shaped galley layout.
