New Model: Raffaelli 50 Compass Rose Evo

Launched in the early part of Summer 2017, the new Raffaelli 50 Compass Rose Evo, is an evolution of the original Compass Rose which launched in 2001 and is one of the recent successes for the Pesaro located and long standing family owned boat builder.  The new 50 Compass Rose Evo keeps the hull of the old model, but revisits the super structure and interior with a new design coming by Classtudio of Antonello Lucio Pontevolpe.  The interior of the new Raffaelli Compass Rose Evo also has been changed with the inclusion of a midships located full beam owners stateroom, choice of two or three shower heads, and galley moved astern.  Hull one also featured a technical change and was powered by the optional Volvo 550hp engines with IPS pod propulsion. With this set up the 50 Compass Rose Evo in its first sea trails allowed for a fully loaded top speed of 34 knots, with light loaded trials making it up to the magical 40 knots.
