Styling and interior design are not taken lightly in Italy, and if your taste in yachts is not encumbered by tradition, you will find the 56S a comfortable fit. Her exterior lines a familiar refinement of what American yachtsmen seem to favor in the breed. Her rakish superstructure is accented with a low-slung arch. It is thoughtfully fitted with an extension that positions the radar above the captain's cap. Her slight reverse sheer terminates in a reverse transom that borders an integral swim/tender platform.
Rail gates are fitted on the side decks, and for boarding astern, she is fitted with a hydraulic passerelle that doubles as a tender crane. The teak covered aft deck has built in seating, and a sunpad tops the raised trunk forward. Warping winches are fitted aft, and a windlass/wildcat controls a plow style anchor with 330 ft. of chain.
Molded-in stairs on the aft deck lead to the bridge where curved seating is aft and an island helm and raised sunpad are forward. This is rather a clever arrangement, as positioning the sunpad forward of the helm allows for additional interior headroom in the main cabin forward. As a result, there is less nip and tuck in the belowdecks overhead and sole, creating a more sophisticated, big boat feel.
The flying bridge's helm bench seating is one with an integral console with wet bar and barbecue grill. An impressive, polished, stainless-steel framed sliding glass door on the aft deck leads to the main cabin where the 56's high-gloss cherry joinery has the detail and luster Italian yacht builders are known for.
The split-level main cabin has built in seating areas and an open galley opposite a dinette area forward. The galley is well laid out with a fair amount of stowage, including drawers designed to accommodate the custom tableware.
The master stateroom, with a queen island berth, is amidships with private head and large shower stall. The master also has a built in vanity and a good amount of space. A forward stateroom with a queen island berth has a private head as well. A second guest stateroom has a double berth. And a third head without shower is accessible from the passageway and is convenient as a day head.
The 56's construction follows European production yacht practice, with a solid bottom supported by a closely spaced network of transverse and longitudinal fiberglass stiffeners. The hull laminate is composed of alternating plies of woven roving and mat, and end grain balsa coring is used to stiffen topsides, superstructure and decks.
The engine room is accessible from the aft deck and, unlike some engine rooms on European designs, is quite spacious and thoughtfully laid out. Machinery installations are neat and tidy, and service points on the main engines and auxiliary systems appear to be within easy reach. Fuel is carried in two stainless-steel wing tanks that gravity feed a day tank on centerline. A Mase generator with sound shield is aft of the engines.
A crew compartment is tucked in aft of the engine room with easy entry and good space.
This well thought out yacht is quite an accomplishment and the Aicon 56S is certainly a serious competitor and worth a serious look...
