2024 Release Boatworks 55 Flybridge Walkaround
The new 55 Flybridge Walkaround will join it’s first three sister ships currently under construction. This model illustrate our leadership in large Walkaround Gameboats. The 55 FB_WA also represents the largest model Release Boatworks has ever produced.
Our new in-house 5-axis CNC router gives us the ability to build cockpit, mezzanine, command deck, windshield, and foredeck assemblies that are unique to the 55 Release. Accommodation plans of our new 55 are individually created to optimize the owner’s needs and desires for the interior space.
With its classic styling, the 55 represents a major step forward in the evolution of the brand. The 55 FBWA features a three-sided fiberglass deckhouse (with an optional solid aft bulkhead) and a Palm Beach style fly bridge. This version is also available sans deckhouse in our traditional open walkaround rendition.
The Flybridge Walkaround’s cockpit and salon layouts, providing an excellent use of space for fishing, diving, cruising and entertaining. The 150-square-foot cockpit boasts twin mezzanine seating with cooler storage below (easily converted into optional freezer space), along with drink coolers, in-deck fish and storage boxes, a transom live well and a transom door with a liftgate. A single centerline lazarette hatch opens for full viewability and access to the available Seakeeper 9, 16, or twin 6’s as well as the steering, trim tabs, and drain pumps.
With its open aft bulkhead, the salon gives you instant access to the cockpit. Forward to port is a well-appointed galley with a full appliance package, cherry cabinetry, a solid-surface countertop, and under-counter refrigeration/freezer units. Aft of the galley, you’ll find a port-side U-shape lounge, which surrounds a custom table, to cradle your guests in comfort while providing ample height to take in the surroundings. To port, you’ll also find a lounge with storage underneath. Below, the 17 ft. 6 in. beam offers an interior space including a choice of two- or three-stateroom layouts with two heads.
The engine room, easily reached through the mezzanine, houses the twin powerplants. A pair of MAN V12 1400CRM (1400 MHP) engines serve as the standard propulsion package. Hull No. 1 – will be powered with the optional MTU 10V2000 1622 HP engines.
With its Optimus Electronic Power Steering matched to stainless-steel, high-speed rudders, and single-lever electronic controls, the 55 will deliver outstanding performance, comfort and range. As you would expect, the engine room is equipped with outstanding engineering that maximizes access and serviceability. Mechanical and electrical equipment includes a MVP ventilation system with supply and discharge fans for proper fresh air supply and water suppression; an oil changing system for the engines, transmission, and generator; and a fire suppression system.
