Solaris Power 48 Open by Race Nautica: comfort and livability
After the successful launch of the Solaris Power 57, with several boats already sold out before the official presentation at the Cannes Boat Show, Solaris Power continues to redefine the concept of the traditional American lobster boats, and introduces the new Solaris Power 48 Open, as the second model in the range and which is available in Hard Top and Flying Bridge versions.
The new Solaris Power 48 Open was designed and built by the now familiar design “dream team” consisting of Norberto Ferretti, Brunello Acampora and Giuseppe Giuliani. The boat offers a number of features unique in the day cruiser category with unprecedented levels of comfort and livability both inside and out. Like the 55′, the new 48′ Open is a very technical boat, focusing on sailing skills, functionality and safety. The latest generation propulsion system is seamlessly integrated into the hull shape that has never been done before in this segment. These capabilities make long cruises in adverse weather conditions possible, with total safety and extended range.
