New Model: VanDutch 56

Van Dutch presents the new 56 an update of the 55 model, and current flagship of this now Italian, Cantiere dell Pardo owned and build sport cruiser and yacht builder, although a 75 is apparently in initial construction and project stages.  Subtle and important changes differentiate the 56 from the 55, the most important being that the 56 is now powered by Volvo IPS pod drives, versus the line shaft of the 55.  She is indeed the first VanDutch to be powered by IPS, and considering the use of Pardo of the Volvo pod drives we might see more of this on future VD models.   Other changes are the large bathing platform now keeping the same beam of the hull, and also having a design detail which brings her out of the hull.  Outside this is what makes you differentiate the 55 from the 56. On the accommodation front the Van Dutch 56 is near identical, with the lower deck offering a two cabins Sleep version and an open plan Lounge Version.  In both versions if you convert the dinette forward and the lounge aft the sleeping accommodation is for four persons.
