Filippetti Yachts latest all-new Sport 55 is the smallest of the sport range line up but certainly packs a punch. Featuring neo-classical lines, the S55 combines elegant innovative styling and strong design cues from its larger siblings. Centrostile design has managed to produce a convertible space that, when closed, allows huge amounts of natural light creating a vast like airy interior space, however, when open, simply invites the sea in to create that penthouse on the ocean feel. Let’s take a closer looks at this new Italian arrival and see what’s on offer.
Steeping onboard you have immediately greeted by a good layout aft which invites you to explore deeper, this is thanks to a large sliding glass door, enabling the two living rooms to become one with each other and create a huge area that stretches from the pilot station to the large aft sun-bathing platform, perfect for refined guest entertainment or relaxing with the family. The glass door, in fact, is equipped with a special double movement mechanism for partial or total opening.
The interiors of the yachts are characterized by a clean linear style: fine wood details with delicate shades match the cream white leather of sofas, the refined parts of furniture, and all yacht ceilings for a highly impressive effect.
Below the S55 can comfortable and adequately sleep 6 guests in three cabins and two bathrooms. The full-beam Master Cabin uses all the 4.64. The VIP Cabin is positioned aft, equipped with a queen-sized bed while guest cabins can be double or twin-bedded.
The power of this sports coupe is not for the faint-hearted thanks to her 50-knot top speed and 40-knot cruising speed, the Filippetti Sport 55 is the fastest and most intoxicating performance model of the Filippetti Yacht Sport series, throw it into any high-speed turn and you will find yourself holding on tighter than a white-knuckle ride at Disney Land, but don’t let that deter you, the S55 won’t let go, its hull beautifully balanced and will grip and turn with any input from the helm.
The secret of such performance is the perfect balance between weight and power as well as an exceptional hull, designed to deliver the best performance at sea without sacrificing comfort and speed, throw what you like at it and it will return you with a huge smile across your face.
Like the rest of the Filippetti range, this yacht is fully customizable. New owners can choose between two engine options: MAN V8 1,200HP propulsion with Arneson transmission for more power; Volvo Penta 900HP propulsion with IPS transmission for a quieter sailing experience.
