Morgan Yachts presented a preview of the new 17 meter vessel Morgan 55 Fast Commuter.
The history of Morgan Yachts is the story of the meeting between tradition and design, between mahogany and composite materials, between old world details and modern technology. The 55 Fast Commuter looks like classic motor yacht from the first part of 20th century. This beautiful vessel combines classic elements with cotemporary design decisions.
The hull of Morgan 55 Fast Commuter was developed by Tom Fexas Studio, Morgan Style Center directed by Marco Mannino created external and interior design.
Morgan 55 is powered by two MAN 800 Hp engines which drive the yacht to a maximum speed of 35 knots and a cruising speed of 28 knots.
The cockpit of the boat will charm you. It features U-shaped sofa, a dinning table and can be completely covered from the sun thanks to the retractable shade which can be extracted from the roof. The exterior cockpit together with the bow sunbathing deck is the ideal place to enjoy the sea views.
The living area of the boat can comfortably accommodate 8 guests. The entrance to the living area, the stairs which lead to the sleeping quarters and the corridor below deck all follow an imaginary straight line which goes from stern to bow without any visual obstacles in order to create continuity of space, ideally open environments and essentialness of line which all come together to guarantee the right privacy and independence whilst enhancing the livability.
The master cabin is located in the fore part of the vessel. It has a double bed, two roomy wardrobes and a lot of other small storage spaces. Two guest cabins feature twin beds (or a king size bed), a wardrobe and a private bath.
Morgan 55 Fast Commuter will be launched in summer 2010.
