You’re aboard a 48-foot motorboat and there’s a 50-foot cross wave at sea, what do you do? If you’re hoping to get to port soon, you’re not sailing on a Solaris Power 48.
The hull, designed by Brunello Acampora, is a guarantee. The boat is made to sail, not to look good on the dock.
The one we tested is the fly version, featuring 2 IPS 650 Volvo with two D6 engines of 480 hp each. The result? A top speed of over 30 knots with a total of 137 litres/hour. If you are content to sail at 25 knots, the litres/hour drops to 140 and at 20 knots, even less than 100.
Even when the sea is formed, just dose the gas to avoid jumping over the waves, even if you take them from the bow.
Good visibility from the inside and even better from the fly. There is plenty of space on board: in the cockpit, forward, on the flybridge and, of course, below deck, where you can find a dinette with 360° windows and a night area with facilities and cabins on the lower deck.
As in previous models, there is a great attention to detail and finishes. The construction quality is high and you can feel it.
In autumn, a third version of the 48 will make its debut. After the open and fly model, the lobster will make its appearance, featuring a smaller fly and a different cockpit layout.
