Project: Austin Parker AP44 Sedan

Austin Parker present the project for a new AP44 Sedan.  Designed by the famous Fulvio de Simoni, the Italian designer continues the formula he used on previous AP models for a modern cruiser with inspirations mostly concerning the super structure to the traditional lobster boat.  The AP44 Sedan will be the second new Austin Parker for the fall 2017 boat show season with the Italian boat builder completing finishing touches to the 48 Sundeck.  The AP44 Sedan will feature a two cabins two heads lower deck.  But its most important feature will be its main deck layout, this with an astern galley, C-shaped dinette, and sun-pad to aft. The saloon galley area is separated by a patio door, this allowing for easy all year usage.  It will be interesting to see if the AP44 as it happened with the successful 42 will offer variants to the range from Open no patio door to Sports without hard top versions.  Being a semi custom builder it all depends what the clients and market asks to Austin Parker.  Power wise the Austin Parker AP44 Sedan will be powered by twin Cummins 480hp with traditional line shaft propulsion.
