New Model: Heron 56

Heron is a new boat builder located in central Italy and in the fall of 2017 presented its very first 56 model.  Designed by Massimo Picco the Heron 56 is modern looking sport yacht, see axe bow and T-top style hard top with central console.  In the Heron 56 the Italian designer also offered an interesting mix of day boat to that of a comfortable cruising sport yacht with lower deck accommodation for six people.  The Heron 56 is standard powered by twin Volvo 435hp with IPS pod propulsion giving top speeds up to 32 knots, though the Italian builder is open to other alternatives of bigger engines and propulsion as traditional shaft line and surface drives units.
