Solaris Power is back in the news by introducing a new open to the 2023 news landscape, a 16.2-meter cabin cruiser with top-of-the-line volume and layout: the new Solaris Power 52 Open. Designed by the in-house team and Brunello Acampora / Victory Design, it is the shipyard’s latest creation aims to combine comfort and elegance with great sailing quality, strong with a deep V-shaped hull and starry bow that keeps the boat soft and dry, even in formed seas.
Solaris Power 52 Open
So here comes a new Solaris Power, and it comes in the form of a boat designed not only to offer maximum comfort, even in planing gaits, but to offer more space than size generally can allow. The deck is, in fact, designed to be as easy as possible, with entire areas redesigned compared to the segment standard, offering a not inconsiderable contribution of novelty, which combines well with the 2/3 cabins offered by the interior layout.
Solaris Power 52 Open – Deck
Encapsulated in lines and volumes with an unmistakable family feeling, the deck of the new 52 Open proves true to the program, offering a spacious layout that is strong with new and valuable features. Just past the swim platform-functioning as both beach area and tenderlift-the boat welcomes with a large central sundeck facing aft, an unchanged element in all three possible configurations. Between this and the bridge, topped and protected by a wide T-top and bordered by folding bulwarks, the cockpit, available in three variations, takes shape.
In the first case, the A variant, the cockpit offers an innovative design specifically designed for the model. In fact, a domestic-sized inline sofa finds its place at the head of the sundeck, offset by a large C-shaped sofa facing aft, served by a central table and protected by the T-top. A full bar/kitchen cabinet is then attached to the back of this one, facing the three ergonomic seats intended for the dashboard. As an alternative to sofa configuration A, in options B and C, one can respectively opt for two opposing benches perpendicular to the broadside, or a single C-shaped sofa directed toward the bow.
Shifting the focus to the bow, the 52 Open offers an additional lounge area, consisting of sundeck in the deckhouse and, at the foot of this, additional settee seating. The latter forward space is reached by means of the walkways that run along the two walls, protected precisely by the elevation of these.

Solaris Power 52 Open – Interior
Coming to the interiors, this 16.2-meter is proposed as a boat on which to stay overnight even for several days, lending itself well to use as a weekender and for the short cruise. In fact, in terms of layout, two variants are offered consisting of 2 or 3 double cabins, plus two full bathrooms.
In the case of the first variant (A), there is a forward double cabin, complete with en-suite bathroom, and a second aft double cabin, itself complete with bathroom. In the case of the B variant, the aft cabin, while remaining double, sees its size reduced, in favor of a third double cabin that takes its place on the port broadside. In this case, the starboard bathroom becomes common to these two cabins.
Propulsion and Performance
To conclude, looking at performance, the new Solaris offers two engine options, respectively capable of pushing it to a maximum speed of 30 or 35 knots. In the standard version, propulsion is provided by a pair of 480-horsepower Volvo Penta D6 IPS 650 engines, while, in the more powerful version, the motorization consists of two 600-horsepower Volvo Penta D8 IPS 800 engines. As for fuel, however, the tank accommodates up to 2,000 liters. The cruising speed, depending on the engines, respectively, is between 24 and 27 knots.
