This exciting new project was conceived as a way to provide those who like the Island Pilots – their style – their performance – their economy – with something big enough to house an extraordinary master and roomy VIP staterooms.
The result is the IP535. She’ll have a layout similar to the 1SR – except that the galley/great room forward of the helm will be split level with both the galley and the dining area. A day head is located just forward of the dinette.
Forward of the great room is a VIP stateroom with ensuite head and shower. Aft of the great room is the master with ensuite head and shower. A full-height door opens from the master into the stand-up engine room.
The deck house is 3 feet wider and 3 feet longer – and since no dining is planned here, has a full-sized convertible U-shaped settee and easy chairs, along with the lower helm station.
The after cockpit is larger, too – in both directions. An L-shaped stairway leads to the bridge – also king-sized with seating for 12.
Under the cockpit are a pair of the IPS II 900 drives. This way, Island Pilot will continue to give you the performance (30 knots plus) and economy (45 gph or .6 NM/Gal) – both unheard of in a cruising yacht of this size. The NM/Gal is more in line with cruising yachts the size of the IP435! There will be a real WOW factor to the IP535. Contact us for more info.
The Island Pilot 535 will debut at the 2011 Miami International Boat Show. Pre-construction pricing is now in effect.
