A long 14 months in the design office eventually came the spectacular Solaris 55. Every detail was reviewed and fine-tuned to ensure she became a benchmark 16m yacht, in regards to her looks, capabilities and performance. As with her sisters she also carries her maximum beam aft a design feature which is now seen most commonly on a large number of ocean racing yachts. She has a high stability ratio and righting moment ballast to weight ratio of more than 40% created by her T keel with lead bulb and cast iron fin available with a 3m draft or optional shallower 2.7m.
Below decks of course there is a choice of layout options forward of the saloon. Whether you prefer an offset or island berth you can take your pick and it is a substantial sized owner’s cabin. The layout also allows space for an en-suite crew cabin forward, if you have no need for crew this can alternatively be a large shelved sail locker. Back aft there are 2 guest cabins both of which are en-suite, the starboard aft cabin can have 2 single berths making it a very versatile space. Both aft cabins have huge volume and are incredibly comfortable guest cabins or even considered second master cabins.
On deck she has the same clever sail set up as her sisters, with twin helms, lines led aft and self-tacking jib. The thing that makes her such a perfect bluewater cruisers is the huge volume of deck stowage. With the sail locker or crew cabin forward and very wide tender garage with access from the deck and opening transom door which transoms into a large bathing platform. She also has specific life raft storage on deck and specific lockers for tools so all your storage needs are catered for!
