BMW Group DesignworksUSA is launching the Intermarine 55 luxury yacht this summer. Developed with yacht builder Intermarine, this 57-feet-long yacht was introduced earlier this year. The 55, which can carry six people and a sailor, is available with a choice of two power trains to match the speed requirements of potential owners.
The first power train features 2, 670 hp endurance engines, while the second has a couple of 800 hp power units.
The first power train’s cruising range stands at 350 nautical miles, while the top speed is rated 31 knots. Meanwhile, the more potent combination offers 300 nautical miles range and a top speed of 35 knots. This yacht comes with two head compartments, a master suite, three cabins, a galley and two bathrooms for $2.2 million.
The yacht will go on sale this July. Laurenz Schaffer, BMW Group DesignworksUSA president, said that partnering with Intermarine to develop this yacht is an “honor.” Schaffer added that the evolution of this design will be seen in the unveiling of future yachts for Intermarine.
Intermarine 55, measuring 57 ft. long, is a highly luxurious boat owing to its exclusive design and well-balanced spaces. It was conceptualized to provide a harmonious drive for occupants when used during day or night and comes with a first-rate internal arrangement consisting of three cabins, two bathrooms, a salon and galley. It has comfortable seats to accommodate one sailor and 6 passengers.
DesignworksUSA team created a ground-breaking design for the boat’s exterior, which emphasizes its strong, graceful and sophisticated lines. It has large windows that have a unique, dynamic shape, offering a clear view of the sea. The shape of the hull side windows is another innovation worth mentioning. Traditionally, the porthole used in boats is neither oval nor circular in shape.
The Intermarine 55’s portholes are incorporated into the large windows with a trapezoid shape that delivers more visibility and luminosity in the interiors in addition to giving exceptional beauty and character to the new model. The lines in the hull that define the distinctive character of the boat are features known to the automotive industry and now, have reached the nautical world.
Details such as the impressive stainless steel air intakes are inspired by automotives. The bow, with its well-defined angle, gives the boat a strong presence, uniquely identifying the Intermarine.
The inner areas of the Intermarine 55 were based on the theme “open horizons”, offering maximum space. The spaces are inspired by modern architecture, filled with natural light and its reflection, generating a warm and comfortable atmosphere. The cabins, salon and bathrooms have large windows that provide a better view of the sea.
The salon door is perfectly integrated with the stern area through three door panels that feature a wide opening. Since the climate of Brazil makes for an amazing time on deck, the boat was designed with open transitions for better functionality.
