Confetti rained down on more than 1 million Boston Celtics fans Friday as the team rolled through the city on duck boats with the Larry O'Brien Trophy to celebrate their NBA championship win.

The morning of celebrations started with huge crowds gathering downtown. Many of those waiting outside TD Garden were treated to an early encounter with the trophy after team owner Wyc Grousbeck and his family were forced to walk the final half-mile to the arena because of traffic and barricades.

Once Grousbeck and other members of the organization made it into the arena, they started the celebration with a rally that included players and their family members, members of the Celtics organization, arena staff, season ticket holders and guests including Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey and Boston Mayor Michelle Wu.

“It’s unbelievable. It still doesn’t seem true. But just trying to stay in the moment,” All-Star Jayson Tatum said during a pre-parade rally at the Garden.

Next, they loaded the team and trophies onto duck boats for the parade, which lasted about 90 minutes. It was the city's 13th championship parade this century and the Celtics' second.

The parade began around 11:15 a.m. in front of TD Garden on Causeway Street. The team rode on duck boats for about 90 minutes past City Hall Plaza and the Boston Common on Tremont Street before the parade ended on Boylston Street near the Hynes Convention Center.

Mayor Michelle Wu's office said they believe that "well over" 1 million people were in attendance.

MBTA Commuter Rail officials said the estimated ridership on Friday was "on par with 5 days of regular weekday ridership condensed into 5-6 hours."

While the city had to wait nearly two decades for this celebration, the Celtics are in a solid position to try to become the NBA’s first back-to-back champions since the Warriors in 2018.

All five starters — Tatum, Brown, Jrue Holiday, Derrick White and Kristaps Porzingis — are under contract for next season. After having secured long-term extensions with Brown, Holiday and Porzingis, the Celtics are expected to do the same with Tatum and White this summer.

Reserve Luke Kornet didn't let fans forget the Celtics' history of titles, leading fans on a count from one to 18 at the end of the parade route.

Their message to the city is clear: Keep the duck boats gassed up.

The Fleming 55 is a well-proven raised pilothouse motoryacht designed for serious cruising. Her semi-displacement hull gives her great flexibility in performance. The Fleming 55 has a range of 2,000 nautical miles at 8 knots yet, with her standard Twin Cummins QSC 500 hp common rail engines, she can attain a top speed of approximately 18 knots. Maximum sustained cruising speed is around 17 knots where her moderate deadrise provides a very comfortable ride. On longer passages, Fleming owners typically cruise at a very economical speed of 10 knots, where the typical fuel burn is slightly more than 10 gph.

The Fleming's deep keel provides protection for the running gear and stability in following seas. Because noise and vibration contribute to fatigue, Fleming has paid special attention to producing a yacht which has become the standard in the industry for its whisper quiet, ultra smooth ride. Fundamental to this achievement is the use of Aquadrive anti-vibration drive systems. 

The Fleming 55 was first introduced in 1986, and since that time it has benefited from a rigorous program of evolution. There have been literally hundreds of improvements made, both big and small. While its legendary hull design remains essentially the same, today's Fleming 55 is a thoroughly modern yacht utilizing advanced technology, materials and construction methods. In 2019 construction of hull number 250 is well underway, making it one of the most successful production yachts in history.

Overview Continued...

Foredeck and Forepeak

Special attention has been paid to the ability to set and retrieve heavy ground tackle on the Fleming 55. The fiberglass anchor platform is equipped with twin Maxwell RC12 vertical windlasses with capstans for both rope and 3/8" (10mm) Grade-60 stainless steel chain. The windlass has a plug-in remote control as well as controls in the pilothouse and on the flybridge. Double sets of grooved rollers make it possible to self-launch and stow two 77 lb (35 Kg) Ultra anchors. Hose bibs for salt and fresh water are located next to the anchor platform, and there are deck lockers to port and stbd.

A lock-down hatch on the foredeck provides convenient access to the forepeak, which is separated from the rest of the yacht by a collision bulkhead. It has an area for storage of chain and a separate ventilated rope locker. Each features a bitter end fitting. The forepeak drains directly overboard and can be hosed down without concerns that water will contaminate the bilges.

The flared bow turns aside green water and provides a forward deck of unusually generous proportions. The oval stainless steel handrail has been brought inboard of the sloping bulwarks for convenience and security. To prevent streaking of the hull, the deck scuppers are piped down to the boot stripe, rather than being allowed to drain directly overboard.

Further protection against heavy weather is provided by the design of the Portuguese bridge. There is comfortable seating on its forward side, which is also the location for the forward shorepower inlet. There is ample storage for fenders and lines inside ventilated lockers accessed from the aft side of the Portuguese Bridge, and double doors close off the forward deck areas from the side and bridge decks creating a safe area for small children. There are sturdy, stainless steel handrails around the forward face of the pilothouse and down both side decks.

Easy stairs with handrails designed for both adults and children lead down to the wide and well-protected side-decks, which run down both sides of the boat. Here you will find cleats and chocks for forward and aft spring lines. The inward-opening bulwark doors make for easy and safe boarding.

Aft Deck and Swim Platform

With an area of approximately 250 sq ft. the Fleming 55 aft deck is unusually large. Being all at one level, it becomes an extension of the salon and provides ample space for chairs, donning scuba gear, or fishing. The fiberglass skirt around the edge of the wide teak cap rail conceals mood lighting and hides the engine-room air intakes which are well-protected from salt-laden spray.

Shower fittings for hot and cold water, located next to the inward-opening transom door, are conveniently placed for use while standing on the swim platform. Stainless steel handrails on the transom and a swim ladder, which can be deployed by a person in the water, provide safety and convenience.

Access to the upper boat deck is via a stainless steel ladder and a sliding hatch in the overhead. Access into the lazarette is through lockable hatches, with safe and stylish curved corners. Available as options are a console for cockpit engine controls and a locker, which can be equipped with a basin and faucet, insulated chest or icemaker.

Flying Bridge

The Fleming 55 low-profile flying bridge is spacious and packed with practical amenities. Its double helmseat, with folding stainless steel footrest, folds forward to access storage beneath it. The control console has full engine instrumentation and ample room for electronics. Access to and from the pilothouse is by a protected internal companionway directly from the pilothouse, avoiding the need to navigate perilous steps or ladders where a slip could result in a fall over the side. A wrap-around venturi windshield with stainless steel handrail provides protection from wind and weather.

There is seating for eight guests close to, but out of the way of, the helm station. A fiberglass table is standard and an ingenious pass-thru "dumbwaiter" eliminates the need to carry refreshments up from the galley. Aft of the seating area is the separate boat deck for the tender and a fully hydraulic davit, with remote control. From here, a ladder provides direct access to the lower aft deck.

A popular option is the aft facing boat deck control station that provides the captain with excellent visibility aft. Complete with bow thruster, and engine controls, backing into a tight slip is easier than ever.

The radar arch provides ample room for the full range of antennae required by modern electronic equipment, and an optional fibreglass hardtop is a popular choice.

Main Salon and Galley

The salon in the Fleming 55 features a comfortable L-settee with cushions upholstered over wood frames instead of the usual foam cushions on plywood. The sole is hand-laid teak and holly strips, and all built-in furniture is of superior quality joinerwork with rounded corners. There is a hi-lo table of unique design making it suitable for dining and as a coffee table. To starboard is a cabinet with powered TV lift and space for entertainment system components. To port is a bar with icemaker. The salon opens directly onto the aft deck through double sliding doors. 

The galley is conveniently located on the same level as the salon and is properly designed to be used while underway. Either Corian or granite counter tops can be ordered. There are ample storage lockers and drawers, and appliances include a 21 cu. ft. side-by-side fridge/freezer with teak-panel doors and chilled water & ice dispenser; Miele induction cooktop with practical custom stainless steel pot-holders; convection microwave; and an undermount double stainless steel sink with waste disposer. Space has been provided for an optional dishwasher. A 20-gallon water heater is conveniently located close to the sinks for instant hot water. A pass-through dumbwaiter makes it safe and easy to serve food and drinks to guests on the flying bridge.

Fleming's signature low-profile design is evident even in the interior, as just a few steps lead up to pilothouse and down to the accommodations. 

Accommodations

The perfect close to a day of cruising is to retire to a comfortable cabin. The Fleming 55 offers easy access to all the accommodations via a central passageway. A separate washer and drier are conveniently located behind a sliding door in this passage.

The master cabin is forward for maximum light and ventilation. It features a tapered queen berth with headboard. The bed lifts at the press of a button to access storage for bulky items. The bed also slides aft to make it easier to make the bed. There are two hanging lockers with shelves, teak louvered doors and space for a TV.

The master cabin has an en suite head with Corian, marble or granite countertops and a molded fiberglass shower stall. Hans-Grohe faucets are used throughout and feature a thermostatically controlled shower. 

The port guest cabin is offered with either two single or one double bed with headboards. An additional slide-out upper berth with either layout is optional. The aft bulkhead has generous bookshelves. The starboard guest cabin has one lower and one upper, slide-out, upper berth. This cabin can also be offered as an optional office with desk, lockers, bookshelves and space for a computer & printer.

The guest head features a one-piece fiberglass molding and shower stall with bi-fold stainless steel doors. The attractive ceramic basin is set in a Corian, marble or granite countertop. Faucets are Hans-Grohe with a thermostatically controlled shower.

Throughout the yacht all lighting is LED type with polished stainless steel fittings. Teak and holly soles are standard in all interior areas.

Engine Room

The Fleming 55 engine room is meticulously well thought out and provides easy accessibility to every piece of equipment.

A signature feature of the Fleming 55 is its quietness and freedom from vibration. Much of the credit for this lies with the Aquadrive system, which isolates the engine and transmission from the propeller thrust, permitting the use of much softer engine mounts. Aquadrive is fitted as standard on every Fleming 55 and their rotating couplings are concealed beneath fiberglass covers for safety.

Another reason for the quietness of the Fleming is the careful attention paid to sound insulation. Lead/foam insulation is used extensively throughout and all hatches are dogged down on rubber gaskets. There are even double hatches separated by an air space over each engine.

Fuel tanks are made of fiberglass with integrally molded sumps to allow maximum useage of fuel. Vinylester resin is used in their construction on the interior and fire-retardant resin in the outer layers. The fuel system has been designed to make the transfer of fuel foolproof. It is impossible to inadvertently overfill one tank by incorrectly switching a fuel return valve.

Access to the engine room is via two hatches in the salon sole and from the lazarette through a uniquely shaped oval door designed for easy access. Engine room intake air enters from the lazarette to ensure it is free of salt before reaching the engines and generators.

For safety and convenience each Cummins QSC 500HP engine has a start and a stop button located in the engine room, and a PTO (power take-off) on the gearbox provides hydraulic power for the stabilizers which are standard equipment on all Flemings.

Inside the large lazarette are four polyethylene water tanks totaling 300 gallons (1,135 liters), battery master switches, and a 3,500 watt inverter. Four air conditioning compressors provide heating and cooling for the entire yacht. Against the transom is the steering system with its connection point for the autopilot. The tops for the rudder stocks terminate above the waterline. Despite all this equipment there remains 95 cu. ft. of storage for fenders and other cruising gear. Access to the engine room is through the oval-shaped door.

In many modern designs it has become fashionable to eliminate the inside steering station, but the Fleming 55 features a pilothouse which closely resembles the bridge of a much larger vessel. We created a dedicated place from which the boat is piloted and controlled without any distractions from other on-board activities but which is still only three steps from the salon and galley. Four interior steps safely lead to the upper flying bridge station.

Specially designed removable consoles provide ample room for a full range of modern electronic equipment without intruding on the engine instrumentation. Overhead consoles provide additional space. There is also a proper chart area with drawers and a chart light. Electrical panels swing out to provide easy access to wiring connections and the inside of the flying bridge console is accessed through a swing-out bookcase. The watch-keeper has their own Stidd helm seat and an adjacent, raised L-shaped settee and table provide a comfortable social area with excellent visibility through the side and forward windows.

This is truly the nerve center of the boat where all the systems and crew come together in complete harmony.

Welcome Aboard the New Jeanneau Yachts 55

View the Guided Tour:

After over 20 years in existence, the Jeanneau Yachts line now features a fresh, new design, thanks to Jeanneau Yachts owners in locations around the world.  Designed for offshore sailing, the most recent addition to the Jeanneau Yachts line, the Jeanneau Yachts 55 , integrates a multitude of surprising, innovative, and practical features on board.

A Sailboat Designed for the Owners’ Privacy and Well-Being

A private space, the forward cabin features a separate access.  The Jeanneau Yachts 55 embodies the owner’s boat, par excellence .  With two-thirds of the hull’s volume at their disposal, this space is truly their own private loft.  The interior of the sailboat combines comfort and refinement, ensuring her owners cruising without constraints.

A Surprising Deck Plan

At 17 metres long and 5 metres wide, the deck aboard the Jeanneau Yachts 55 is distinguished by its generous living space.  The aft cockpit is entirely devoted to relaxation, where two facing saloons with tables and bench seating convert into sundecks, right up to the gunwale.  It also features an immense, hydraulically controlled, retractable swim platform for direct access to the water.

The forward cockpit, dedicated to sailing and handling, features twin forward helm stations with winches within easy reach.  Forward of the twin helms, we find a second cockpit accommodating a U-shaped saloon and an exterior chart table.  This space can be entirely shielded from the elements by a large windscreen and a hard top.  The Jeanneau Yachts 55 elevates sailing in all seasons.

Ease of Movement on Board

The Jeanneau Yachts 55 benefits from an ideal flow of movement on board, to open spaces as well as to the recessed sidedecks. Movement on board is also facilitated along the centreline of the sailboat, whether from one living space to another or to the aft passerelle, without obstacles.

Review: Silent 55, the extraordinary solar powered yacht

Yachting World

  • January 18, 2019

Silent Yachts is tapping into the solar zeitgeist and creating a new meaning for the term ‘powercat’.  Sam Fortescue reports

Silent Yachts Silent 55

There is a slow, silent revolution under way in the yachting world. It is a revolution that is introducing tonnes of lithium and a sprinkling of silicon to the spec list of new boats. Holding out the promise of silent mobility, plus limitless domestic power on board, it made a big splash at the last Cannes Festival of Yachting – not least thanks to the new Silent 55 catamaran which debuted there.

From the pontoon side, the Silent 55 looks like a typical modern catamaran, with a big coachroof studded with windows and a flybridge helm. Except there’s no mast. Now, bear with me here. I realise that this is a sailing magazine, but we will shortly get back to more familiar territory. The unique qualities of this catamaran only become apparent from up top, where an expanse of solar panels stretches away fore and aft, embedded into the coachroof. The hard top itself carries yet more panels, and can be folded down flush to give an unshaded solar array of 49m2. During the heat of a summer day in the Med, this is capable of generating 10kW of power and up to around 60kWh in the course of the day.

Silent Yachts Silent 55 exterior

But to make a solar system work in reality, Köhler had to go back to the drawing board on yacht design. The saloon and hulls have extra thermal insulation to keep air-con losses down, and the use of carbon and aramid in key areas helps reduce the overall weight to a decent 17 tonnes (a Lagoon 52 weighs 22.5 tonnes). He has tried to keep windows out of the direct sun with long overhangs and in contrast to the Lagoon’s 12 deck hatches, the Silent 55 has just two.

Holistic design

On the other hand, it has lots of opening windows, to allow a natural draught to do its job. “It’s a holistic approach – you can’t take the batteries and the drivetrain and drop it into another boat.”

Of course, using the propulsion system quickly takes its toll of the boat’s 140kW battery bank. The model on display at Cannes had two 135kW motors, giving you just half an hour of silent motoring flat-out, albeit at a top speed of over 20 knots. More reasonable 30kW engines and a single-digit speed give you greater range. Nonetheless, the electric drive alone isn’t going to allow you to outrun a storm, or race home after a day at anchor, so the boat is designed to work with a generator hidden in the heavily insulated transom of its starboard hull. At cruising speed of around 5-6 knots, Köhler says there is rarely any need to use the generator, citing an owner who has just emailed him triumphantly about a second year totally generator-free. “In the end, you have to compare it to the performance of a sailing boat,” Köhler says. “It is as fast as a sailing boat in similar conditions – after all, there is no wind without sun.” He went so far as to tell me during the sea trial in Palma, Mallorca, that he believed the majority of sailors would happily dispense with the hassle of sails and a rig if only they could enjoy silent motoring and anchoring. “As soon as people realise the incredible concept of this boat, they won’t understand why they ever did anything else.”

The market does not seem to agree with him – yet. Sales of the boat have been good – they have already sold six, five of which are already in the water. But of those, four customers have taken the sail option, which means planting a 19.7m tall mast complete with boom and rigging slap bang in the middle of the coachroof solar array. “I was a bit amazed,” Köhler admits. “The shade from the rig reduces the energy generated by the solar area, while it costs more and is heavier, so consumes more fuel. Maybe it is for optical reasons.” In fact, the shade of the rig slashes the average yield of the solar panels in half. In the Med, that means around 30kWh per day. But perhaps it figures. The typical profile of buyers is an environmentalist who has a Tesla electric car and is “an early adopter who likes to have things before others”. And at low speeds, with modest use of the air-con, the reduced energy generation should still cover daily consumption.

Silent Yachts Silent 55 Sail Version exterior

The performance under sail should be reasonable because of the lightweight build of the boat, its broad 8.47m beam and stub keels added to each hull. Control lines are led back via conduits in the coachroof to the flybridge helm station, to make single-handing under sail a possibility.

More interesting, I think, is a sort of halfway-house option using a kite rig. This optimises the performance of the solar panels and gives plenty of propulsion. On the smaller 55 and the 64, Silent Yachts currently recommends a 19m2 kite that costs around €25,000 – a fraction of the cost of a new mast, boom, shrouds and sails. “The sail automatically makes a figure of eight above the boat, and you can steer it with a joystick or an app on an android phone,” Köhler explains. “It can propel the 55 at up to 6 knots, even in light winds.” Perfect for an Atlantic crossing, then.

For the bigger Silent 79, which will hit the water in the summer, a commercial grade Sky Sail system needs to be used – a smaller version of the ones used on cargo ships. This kite can propel the boat at ten knots, but it costs more than ten times as much as its smaller cousin. Both are capable of pulling the boat upwind. So far, so new. But outside the novel energy and propulsion system, the Silent 55 aims to do what many other cruising catamarans are trying to achieve. “Most of our clients order for circumnavigation and long-term cruising,” Köhler says. So the boat is aimed to be as comfortable and capable as possible with watermakers, TVs and an induction hob that all capitalise on the boat’s abundant energy. A flexible configuration allows owners the choice 
of between three and six cabins – the latter designed for charter. The owner’s cabin lies forward of the saloon, under the windows of the coachroof, which provide magnificent views and abundant natural light. There’s a walk-around bed and steps down into the starboard hull give access to an en-suite shower room and heads.

Silent Yachts Silent 55 master cabin

In my view, the best cabin lies aft of this, accessed in the traditional manner down steps out of the saloon. The king-sized bed lies athwartships and the shower is larger than that of the master cabin. There’s more space down here, better headroom and still plenty of light courtesy of the many hull lights.

Silent Yachts Silent 55 guest cabin

When I had the chance to sea trial the Silent 55, albeit in motorboat format, I jumped at it. It was a contrary autumn day on Mallorca with 15 knots breeze – just a shame, then, that this wasn’t one of the sailing configured versions.

To start with, getting on board is made really easy courtesy of deep boarding platforms on the skirts. She feels rather square because of that vast, glazed saloon with its deep overhang, and perhaps because of the utilitarian nature of the hard top, which is really about supporting more solar panels. Nevertheless, the side decks are broad and uncluttered. The space up top is designed to concertina down flat, hence the hydraulic rams, fold-down seat back and lowering console. It makes a great sailing position, though, with all round visibility, and is also perfect for sundowners at anchor. When the rain comes down, this feels quite exposed, but there is a fully sheltered helm at the front of the saloon, and it is also possible to drive the boat from anywhere using a tablet thanks to smart electronics. Under power, the handling is superb. The quietness of the motors is astonishing, and I gather they’ll be inaudible on the next boat, which will do away with the gearbox. Even in the aft cabins, directly above the motors, there is no more than a distant hum. The boat responds instantly to the power and the wind seemed to have no impact at all. As with any propulsion system, the power consumption jumps as you pile on the speed – it was sobering to see. At 6 knots, both motors drew 10kW but at 8 knots it was closer to 30kW. I liked the huge saloon with its raised table for 360º views. And the sliding door and window gives great access aft, connecting the saloon and cockpit in fine conditions. The finish was smart and in muted tones, feeling more Scandinavian than German.

Intriguingly, at least it seems to me, Köhler has tapped into something with the concept behind Silent Yachts – but not entirely for the reasons that he expected. Buyers are opting for the sail or kite versions of the boat because they want a comfortable wind-powered craft with abundant, quiet energy on tap. It brings a whole new meaning to the 
term ‘powercat’

Nominee Spotlight: Jeanneau Yachts 55

  • By Andrew Parkinson
  • October 3, 2023

On the heels of the Jeanneau Yachts 60 and 65, the French boatbuilder synonymous with sailing in style premieres its latest prodigy, the Jeanneau Yachts 55, at the Annapolis Sailboat Show. Our editors first saw the 55 as a scale model back at the 2023 Miami Boat Show. A quick study suggested it was anything but another everyday sailboat design. With this new model, Jeanneau has emphasized the idea of building a boat around its potential owners’ needs, with an eye on long-range cruising in more space and comfort than ever before.

Jeanneau Yachts 55 arial

The Jeanneau 55 was penned in a collaboration between Philippe Briand Yacht Design, Winch Design and Jeanneau. According to the builder, the 55 sought inspiration from catamarans for space optimization. That approach is evident in the final product.

It starts with the boat’s exterior, in the form of a true dual cockpit setup. The twin helm stations are positioned a bit forward, leaving a wide area abaft for entertainment and relaxation, with two sofas: one U-shaped and one L-shaped, which both convert to sun lounges, and a hydraulic swim platform. Sheltered by an optional hardtop arch, the helm area and forward “exterior salon” include a chart table with a GPS screen and autopilot controls, all protected by a wraparound windscreen with excellent visibility. The streamlined foredeck also includes plenty of real estate for a sun-lounge, which can be shaded with a canopy at anchor.

Below the waterline, it’s a dual rudder system and a sturdy keel (either a traditional L-shaped fin keel with a weighted bulb or an optional shallow-draft version). At 40,878 pounds with a D/L of 125.5 and a 26 percent ballast-to-displacement ratio, it extends its beam throughout, adding a topside chine for more interior volume.

Jeanneau Yachts 55

Its sail configuration comprises a modern fractional sloop rig, enhanced by an attractive bowsprit. Versatile rig options are available. Downwind performance can be enhanced with an optional asymmetrical spinnaker, spanning 2,690 square feet. 

The Jeanneau 55 employed advanced composite materials in the build, with elegant wooden accents carrying a sense of timeless craftsmanship. Inside, the 55 sports a distinctive three-cabin layout, providing roomy, comfortable accommodations for up to six guests. Designed with a private apartment in mind, the forward owner’s suite occupies nearly two-thirds of the main interior. The cabin has an inviting island berth, while the salon offers an inviting L-shaped settee and two comfortable chaises. Two aft cabins offer cozy double berths, each accessible via its dedicated staircase from the protected cockpit salon. A functional crew cabin can be integrated into the bow as an option.

The starboard-side galley has a streamlined design, incorporating an island with a cooktop, an ice storage unit and a double sink. The 55 has three private heads, one in each cabin. Cabin headroom is also a plus, at over six and a half feet.

Attributed with the 55’s living spaces, design Andrew Winch says ergonomics are essential to the success of any boat design. “I was so pleased with the Jeanneau range, I even bought one for myself,” he says. “I have always wanted a yacht that was as comfortable as this and performed extremely well as an ocean sailing yacht. If there is one unifying thread which runs through all of our design departments, it’s our commitment to designing not just spaces for clients, but lifestyles.”

Jeanneau Yachts 55 : Is this the cruising yacht of the future?

Michael Good

 ·  03.06.2023

The striking canopy above the cockpit characterises the unusual design. And the position of the helm stations far forward

It takes a great deal of courage, confidence, self-assurance and budget to develop a new boat so far outside the framework of the usual and established. All the more reason: what Jeanneau is launching with the new Yachts 55 is not a volume boat suitable for the mass market, but rather an exclusive blue water vessel with a hull length of over 16 metres and a correspondingly high price tag for discerning owners.

The yacht builders in western France presented the new Yachts 55 as a world premiere at the boot trade fair in Düsseldorf in January. And it became the much-noticed star of the show. No other new boat was the subject of so much and, above all, so controversial discussion during and after the trade fair. And no other concept has polarised as much. All in all, the Jeanneau Yachts 55 is the most exciting new release of the year.

As a subsidiary of the all-powerful Beneteau Group, Jeanneau has the possibilities and the solid foundations to dare to try something new and realise fresh ideas. Other manufacturers can hardly afford such daring developments with the risk of failure. Especially in these difficult post-pandemic times, when problems such as supply chains and a shortage of skilled labour continue to slow down production and squeeze margins in the yacht building industry, many manufacturers are generally holding back with progressive new developments.

Other interesting cruising yachts:

  • SWAN 55: Beautiful northerner with Italian temperament
  • TEST AIR 40.20: Facelift of an exceptional cruising yacht
  • HALLBERG-RASSY 50: Dream tourer with sports upgrade in the test

Jeanneau acted with similar courage back in 2019. Back then, the French company presented the equally unusual Sun Loft 47, a full-bodied boat that was developed exclusively for the needs of the charter market and, as a pure B2B project, is only sold directly to this market - not without success. The new Jeanneau Yachts 55, on the other hand, fulfils exactly the opposite pole of demand. The boat is designed exclusively to meet the sophisticated wishes of owners who like to travel alone and only occasionally take guests with them.

The Jeanneau Yachts 55 has similarities to the charter model

Even if the developers at Jeanneau don't like to hear it: There are definitely parallels between the two strongly polarising concepts Sun Loft 47 and Yachts 55. Especially on deck. For example, the helm stations on both boats are built far forward to create huge lounge areas on the aft deck. In addition, the cockpit can be partially or completely covered in expansion stages with flexible or fixed elements. And on both boats, the two aft cabins are directly accessible from the cockpit via separate companionways.

The interior, on the other hand, is completely different. While the Sun Loft 47 has a total of up to twelve berths for charter guests, the interior of the larger Yachts 55 is designed more like a flat for the owners only, with a large saloon, kitchen-living room, bedroom and a spacious bathroom - a kind of two-and-a-half-room flat integrated into a yacht, if you like. The layout is as unusual as it is exciting. The shipyard has built two additional double cabins with their own bathrooms aft, completely separate from the main cabin. If required, guests travelling with the yacht can stay here comfortably, with plenty of privacy and, thanks to the separate access from the cockpit, also largely separated both spatially and acoustically.

Innovative details inspire, the high variance also

The general concept of the Yachts 55 includes the targa bar and the fixed hardtop or the flexible sprayhood with windscreen in front of the companionway. As on the test boat, the entire forward cockpit area is protected from the weather, wind and sun. If desired, the aft deck with its spacious lounge areas can also be largely covered by a fixed bimini, similar to a catamaran. All of this - apart from the targa bracket fitted as standard - is available as an option for a corresponding surcharge.

Special details

Another special feature: the navigation system is not installed below deck, but on deck in the cockpit. In the shelter of the canopy, you sit in an elevated position and have a good view to all sides as well as into the sails. With the remote control from the autopilot, the boat could also be steered from here in wind and weather.

You can have great parties on the aft deck. There is as much space for this as on a catamaran

The aft deck is dominated by the huge seating areas on both sides. Many people can sit together there or lie in the sun when the tables are lowered and the surfaces are closed with cushions. Further forward in the cockpit under the protected canopy is another seating area for five or six people, which can also be converted into a sunbathing area if required. And with additional cushions, the flat cabin superstructure on the foredeck can also be converted into a sunbed. It's nice to have so much space on deck. However, the question arises as to who should ultimately use the huge lounge areas - on a pure owner's boat, which is usually only used by a few people at a time.

The Jeanneau Yachts 55 can also be sailed single-handed

For the YACHT test in the south of France, only two people are on board, which is easily enough to cope with the large boat when sailing, even if the conditions are not as favourable as during the test run. The helmsman has a good overview both to windward and to leeward at the far forward steering positions. And he has the winches for the sheets, trim lines and halyards right in front of his nose on both sides.

To set and trim the sails, it is best to stand in the channel of the laterally recessed running deck (walkaround cockpit) and turn the winches at a good height in a relaxed and efficient manner. In this favourable position, the steering wheel is also within easy reach. Large halyard pockets keep everything around the helm tidy and organised, and there is also plenty of space for working on the lines. Overall, the handling is impeccable and very easy to manoeuvre. Even soloists can get to grips with it very well. However, because the loads on the sheets are generally very high on a boat of this size, electric drives are worthwhile, at least for one winch on each side.

Surprisingly dynamic

The design from Philippe Briand's studio surprises in the YACHT test with dynamic sailing characteristics in winds of between eight and a maximum of ten knots. With a ready-to-sail weight of 18.5 tonnes, the relatively heavy touring boat is very lively, especially upwind, and reacts directly to steering impulses with its double rudder blades. Despite the long distances from the forward-mounted steering positions to the rudder quadrants, the system works very smoothly and with virtually no slippage thanks to the Dyneema cable transmission.

Bild 1

With the large, widely overlapping genoa, the Jeanneau Yachts can tack 55 to 55 degrees to the wind and can achieve an average speed of 7.1 knots. If you have to tack, you can reach 6.2 knots with the self-tacking jib at an angle of 45 degrees to the true wind. The test boat is equipped with a Sparcraft furling mast as standard. This rig with the conspicuously strongly swept spreaders is trimmed with a lot of tension and a noticeable amount of mast bend. This is intended to prevent the mast from pumping in heavy swell. The manufacturer Sparcraf has developed a new mechanism to ensure that the furling process in the mast works perfectly despite the strong bend.

Innovative and right - even in detail

Jeanneau does not offer an alternative layout for the apartment-like interior below deck with its unusual layout. In any case, the three-part layout in the forward interior area with saloon, bedroom and bathroom remains the same. In this way, the shipyard underpins the concept as an uncompromising owner's yacht, but with the two additional guest cabins aft, it also offers living space for guests on board or for the children. The only deviation from the standard layout is planned for the forepeak, where the shipyard will normally install a spacious and accessible sail locker. However, an additional cabin for the skipper with his own toilet and separate entrance can also be realised there as an option.

The interior design impresses with an open, bright and Mediterranean living ambience as well as an overwhelming amount of space, especially in the huge owner's cabin, which extends across the entire width of the ship of almost five metres. The queen-size double bed is attached to the side on the port side. There is another small sofa on the starboard side with a make-up or work table in front of it. There is also plenty of space in the bathroom. The very spacious shower area with solid partitions is particularly pleasing. There is also plenty of room to move around here.

The long galley, which complements the saloon in a J-shape over a length of no less than 3.40 metres on the starboard side, scores maximum points. The work surfaces are enormous and the amount of storage space is almost immeasurable. There is no doubt that Jeanneau has raised the bar yet again in comparison with the competition with this galley. What's more, the work surface is installed very high, around 96 centimetres from the floor. This is particularly advantageous for working in the galley when the boat is heeling. The striking extension component below deck is the central carcass, which serves as a room divider between the saloon and kitchenette and, above all, as a welcome place to hold on to. However, the furniture is not particularly stable.

Innovative and full of good ideas. Jeanneau has once again delivered an extremely creative piece of work

The two aft cabins also offer guests a high level of comfort, each with a double berth of reasonable dimensions, their own bathroom with shower and, above all, plenty of privacy as a completely separate cabin with a separate companionway. It would perhaps be desirable for the shipyard to offer one of the two aft cabins as a walk-in locker or even as a workshop and technical room for use as a blue water vessel. Unfortunately, this convenience is not currently included in the options.

Loud machine

The built-in diesel engine from Yanmar brings a generous 110 hp into the water, with a three-blade folding propeller and shaft drive. No alternatives are planned or necessary. The ship can reach 9.2 knots at full power and 8.6 knots at cruising speed. Because the powerful genset is installed in the technical channel between the aft cabins, it is relatively noticeable in the cabins with 76 decibels of noise when cruising. Jeanneau installs both a bow and stern thruster as standard, once again emphasising the importance of the boat as a pure owner's boat, which is usually operated with a small crew.

One million euros and more are quickly reached

The Yachts 55 costs around 820,000 euros gross with its extensive and high-quality basic equipment, including a furling mast and a simple set of sails. Nevertheless, the list of possible options is relatively long. The test boat, the construction number one shown at the trade fair in Düsseldorf, is equipped with all possible extras for test and demonstration purposes. With all the accessories, the boat ultimately costs just under 1.3 million euros.

With the Yachts 55, Jeanneau has put together an incredibly exciting, very attractive and smart complete package, aimed at discerning and spoilt owners who like to live on the boat in unrestricted comfort and at most want to stay in small company. In the YACHT test, the French company's distinctive concept worked very well. However, whether it can achieve a breakthrough on the market is another matter. Nevertheless: Jeanneau was able to sell 15 boats of the new type directly at the boot in Düsseldorf alone. That's a real announcement.

Ralf and Helga Schmidtke | Fleming 65 Owners

Having decided after 30 years of sailing to change to power, the wide choice of brands made the selection task a daunting one. We wanted the most reliable, comfortable, safest, practical and best thought out boat that we could find. Attention to detail and quality was paramount, as was after purchase servicing. She also had to be an attractive boat that we could be proud of. After several months of extensive research, one name easily made it to the top.
