New Alenyacht superyacht tender Alen 55
by Raphael Montigneaux
Following a successful debut in September, the second Alen 55 is set to be delivered to the owners of the 56m Perini Navi sailing yacht Panthalassa, replacing their former chase boat, an Alen 42.
Built in composite, this elegant 16.8m chase boat made her first public appearance during the latest Festival de la Plaisance of Cannes in September. Her timeless design is reminiscent her previous smaller sister, the Alen 42, which has had fantastic success at Alenyacht with more than 20 hulls delivered today.
The four extra metres of this new version offers more space and comfort on the deck, and also inside where you can find a double and a twin cabin plus a lounge area and a bathroom.
Powered in standard by twin 800hp Volvo Penta engines, the Alen 55 reaches the same level of performance as her previous sister, with a top speed of 34 knots and a range of 250 nautical miles at the cruising speed of 28 knots.
All Alenyachts are fully customisable. The first Alen 55 was delivered this summer, and Panthalassa's will be delivered before the end of the year. The hull No 3 and No 4 are also ordered and scheduled for a delivery in 2014.
Before the end of the year, the Turkish yard will launch their new flagship the Alen 68. Stay tuned to learn more on the largest Alenyacht.
