Sundeck Yachts 550 is a modern trawler designed and built in Italy. The 550 is just the first of three models, 17 to 25 maters, whose target is to bring charm and functionality of a trawler through a catchy look and top craftsmanship.
Sundeck Yachts 550 is around 17 meters long (56 feet) and can be chosen in three different versions, based on the internal layout and trim. Main features are the amazing interior space and the large sun bathing areas outside. On the foredeck there’s a bed for four and a couch for another four. The flying bridge offers all amenities, such as refrigerator and grill; while the aft part is free and can be used according to needs.
The cockpit features a comfy living area, but especially some very smart solutions like the system for loading and unloading water or the high pressure pump for deck washdown. The windshield is split into three parts, and the pillars contribute to a visual and structural robustness.
The cockpit door can be opened fully, and the ample clear surfaces let the light in. This was one of the main targets of the Sundek Yachts project: to build a boat that could be used like a luxurious villa on the sea. On several seas actually. The galley is fully equipped and can be completed with dishwasher, icemaker and wine cellar.
Outside and inside the light toned teak caulking add more elegance and freshness, while couch and chairs can be trimmed in real leather. A side door leads from the helm station to the right passageway and makes maneuvering even easier. The swim platform is submersible, and it’s available in two sizes.
To make cruising more convenient, only last gen common rail engines are available: Cummins or FPT Industrial, 450 to 550 HP, with shaft drives and optional ZF joystick or Yacht Controller commands. On displacement the fuel consumption is extremely low, while on the plane the cruise speed is around 20 knots.
The equipment includes air conditioning and generator, featured as standard. The anti-roll Side Power system further increases the comfort. Belowdeck there’s space for two to four cabins, two or three heads, based on the owner’s needs (not forgetting charter). It’s even possible to provide the boat with a small office, or an additional lounge.
The crew quarter is located abow and offers two cabins, a head, a closet and washing machine.
Construction methods and materials are top-end, and the CE design category “A” underlines the value of the design and build. The ability of skilled carpenters allows for the highest level of finishing, as in the best hand-crafted products. Sundeck Yachts 550 is a perfect trawler for living the joy of cruising and staying aboard.
