Last week we were at Versilia Yachting Rendez-vous for a very special exhibition.
Solaris Power 55 is the result of the work of italian excellence between Solaris Shipyard, Norberto Ferretti for the concept and product development and Brunello Acampora for the total design.
Solaris Power 55 is a lobster boat that can exceed 35 knots in top speed, but also able to provide excellent performance and very low fuel consumption even at 10/12 knots. The video is from the test conducted by Barche Magazine with two Volvo D11 engines of 725 hp each and IPS transmissions. Very appreciated the handling, the simplicity with which it turns and the soft passage on the wave. The hull is made for navigation in all weather conditions. Solaris Power 55 is a category A with very marine characteristics. As you can read in their review: ‘The bow is very flared, the freeboard is quite high and the passers-by are low. From bow to stern you can move safely. Always well protected from splashes and waves.
Above the head there is a sun top accessible from a ladder that is in the dinette. The cockpit is thus more clear and, thanks to the folding terraces, everything is available as leaving. The version we tested features a layout with a full beam master cabin amidships . There is also a version with three cabins. The choice of placing the galley in the lower deck, allows to have the saloon all available for the dashboard and the comfort of guests‘.
The complete range will also include a 46′ in three versions, open, hard top and fly, a 65′, a 76′ and the flagship that will measure 88 feet.
