We had tested the De Antonio D50 Open during the last Genoa Boat Show. What impressed us the most was the ability of this boat of combining a perfect stern platform with an outboard propulsion and subsequent space limits. The De Antonio D50 now evolves with a Coupé version. Let’ see take a look at the new motoryacht from De Antonio Yachts that is preparing to debut in 2022, together with the De Antonio D36 Open.
The De Antonio D50 Coupé has the same comfort features than the D50 Open. What’s new is the presence of a more enveloping superstructure around the helm station that makes the boat significantly more suitable for demanding navigation.
Not a pure cruiser, then, but a step towards a way of experiencing the boat that is not strictly “summer”, but leaves more freedom of use to the owner. In fact, with this protection around the driving position, a sort of internal area is created, also protected on the sides, which does not affect the external spaces and at the same time offers shelter in the event of unfavourable conditions.
What’s more, the De Antonio D50 Coupé offers shaded areas on the deck, with the option of a sliding canopy that retracts to let light into the cockpit or to keep this section in the shade during the hottest hours.
Below deck, the “standard” layout, as for the open version, consists of a master cabin in the bow, a head with separate toilet and shower cubicle and a full-beam “U-shaped” dinette that can be converted into a double bed by sliding the small table positioned in the centre. Instead of the U-shaped dinette, the owner can also opt for two double cabins. This layout can be enhanced with a second full head. For those who also want a sailor to steer the boat, it is possible to have two double cabins and one for the crew (with its own head).
The D50 Coupé has a twin-stepped hull. Power options range from 1,200 to 1,800 HP with a top speed of around 45 knots.
