Worldwide première of Solaris Power 48 Open
Solaris Power keeps on redefining the concept of the traditional American lobster boats, and introduces the new Open 48-footerat the Cannes Boat Show. The new Solaris Power 48 Open offers a number of features which are unique in the category of day cruisers with unprecedented levels of comfort and livability both inside and outside. Like the 55, the new 48 Open is a very technical craft, focused on seagoing capabilities, functionality and safety. The last generation propulsion system is perfectly integrated into the shape of the hull which has never been done before in this segment. These capabilities make possible long cruises in adverse weather conditions with total safety and extended range. Moreover, the boat is capable to cruise efficiently at low speed in displacement mode and as well over 35kts, unlike ordinary boats with planning hulls.
Again in this model, Norberto Ferretti gave maximum consideration to comfort and livability, designing an open walkaround that offers the same cabin space of a conventional cabin cruiser. This boat is the first of a new generation of open boats, representing a big step forward, compared to the current offer on the market. On the main deck, starting from the bow, there is a sunbathing area with shaded headrest. The master station is rationally fitted with instruments, joystick and a complete dashboard, plus two touch-screens that can be configured accordingly to Owners’ needs. As for the interior layout, two different options are available: both of them have a full-beam master bedroom. Two engine options can be chosen: Volvo IPS 600 or 650, with a top speed of over 35kts. Cruising at an average 20kts, range is about 300 miles.
