After her success at Cannes Yachting Festival, the Sacs Rebel 55 goes on growing in the market and embraces one of the nautical trends most sought after by owners in recent years. This muscular 17-metre boat is now available in a new version with folding sides. Let’s climb aboard and see what it looks like.

Once again Sacs has entrusted Christian Grande with the project. The deck is designed to offer maximum comfort on board and, despite its massive appearance, the Rebel 55 focuses strongly on performance. The interior and exterior spaces are designed to be welcoming and comfortable, with design solutions capable of “warming up” the atmosphere.

At the same time, cutting-edge lines and stylistic details such as the snorkel air intakes, suspended wing hard top and T-foam profiles combined, in the most aggressive version, with four 600hp Mercury outboards give this 17-metre yacht a decidedly sporty character. In keeping with the philosophy of the Rebel range, the new addition to the Lombardy yard’s range is a craft that refuses the laws of purist concepts. The goal is to achieve the right compromise between comfort and performance.

Sacs Rebel 55 – Deck

In the configuration with Volvo Penta IPS, the stern platform is spacious and has a side ladder. In the outboard version, the platform is certainly more restricted. This, however, enhances the possibility of having available the folding sides with which it is possible to recover part of that space. The sundeck is central and can accommodate up to three people. At the sides, a walkway leads into the cockpit. Two opposing sofas, creating a living area that can be converted into a dining area thanks to the two electrically-operated teak tables. Furthermore, there is a linear galley that includes a bar structure with sink, Corian worktop, cabinet and chest of drawers and a 90-litre fridge with stainless steel drawer.

From the cockpit, the side-decks rise up towards the bow, protected by the flaps with large glazed sections. These offer a wonderful view in total safety, especially for children.

The bow areas can be reached uninterruptedly thanks to the walkarounds and consist of a sea-facing sofa and an additional sundeck. Christian Grande points out that the width of the Rebel 55 has made it possible to create a helm station and three co-pilot stations in the console. This way, even cruising becomes a convivial moment for those on board.

REBEL 55 – Interior

Thanks to a generous beam – up to 5.28 m below deck – the boat has two cabins with a Super Queen Size bed, equipped with head and separate shower, as well as a living area in the central area.

The interiors are offered in three different styles: Daiquiri Touch, with delicate tones; Spicy Honey, which offers balanced contrasts, and Velvet Mist, which recalls nocturnal atmospheres. Each, in its own way, emphasizes a contemporary character where classic and modern elements are balanced, through the use in the furnishing elements of metal painted wood and fabric upholstery.

Sacs Rebel 55 – Propulsion

The entry-level Sacs Rebel 55 is powered by twin 725hp Volvo Penta IPS 950s with a claimed top speed of 37 knots. The faster version (up to 48 knots maximum speed) can count on four 600hp Mercury Marine outboards. Total? 2,400 outboard horsepower!
