Zeelander Z55 Sport Cruiser made its European debut
The largest model to date for the shipyard
Dutch shipyard Zeelander Yachts’s new flagship sport cruiser Z55 has been unveiled at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2017. The Z55 is a luxurious 17-metres yacht – 100% made in Holland at Zeelander Yachts’ new state-of-the-art facility based in Groot – Ammers. The model combines timeless design and innovative solutions from a team of the renowned professionals coming from the superyacht industry. She has a deep-V hull made from GRP core infusion vinylester glass fibre, not with all the usual spray rails, which makes gives huge boost to her seagoing characteristics. The advantage of this solution is a significantly smoother ride. When driving in rough seas, it’s possible to maintain a higher speed, whilst maintaining a smooth, comfortable ride.
The Z55 unit – on display at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2017 – features a contemporary airy décor in light oak with grey finish, which better suits the European market. The American version delivered to a customer earlier this year has more wood accents in both the interior and the exterior. She has a sophisticated layout. The main deck is a one-floor social area. It consists of a stern cockpit, bar, galley and wheelhouse, all on the same level. The yacht benefits from the yard’s special feature, a 360-degree panoramic vistas from the wheelhouse through generous windows with narrow frames, which is unique for the class.
