Project: Austin Parker AP 48 Sportfly

Here at PowerYacht we like what Austin Parker and its designer Fulvio de Simoni have done in recent years and while the inspiration of the hull lines goes to the Down East lobster boat, inside and on deck these are more about an Italian cruiser and yacht then anything else.  For 2018 Austin Parker is currently finalizing the 48 Sportfly, a flybridge version of the 48 Sundeck which was presented in Cannes 2017.  The Austin Parker AP 48 Sportfly will feature a more flybridge deck with helm station to port side, a forward facing settee to starboard, and a sun-pad taking a big percentage of the space available.  For those that don't know that is what most sub fifteen meter Italian flybridge cruisers featured up top a couple of decades ago. For the remaining the AP 48 Sportfly should be very similar if not identical to the Sundeck version which features a lower deck of three double cabins.  Power is from twin Cummins 550hp with shaft line propulsion which give a top of 28 knots.
