A true "classic" in every sense of the word, the Novatec
55' Islander Cockpit embodies all of the space, quality, and
craftsmanship demanded by a modern yachtsman . Several layouts are
available. The most common layout includes two staterooms, with
optional third stateroom, dinette or office.
The spacious master includes a walk around, king size berth with
ensuite shower or optional shower/tub combination. The forward
stateroom comes complete with a queen size berth and direct access to
the common head. Both staterooms enjoy ample cabinets, a hanging
locker and the option to have a hinged bed for additional storage underneath.
The layout includes a spacious salon with a U-shaped galley down
configuration, along with a dinette. The galley up configuration is
also available. All of the interior accommodations demonstrate the
exquisite work of old-world craftsmen using the finest in teak or
cherry wood throughout.
Later model 55' Millennium are built with close to a stand-up
entryway into the engine room. Stepping up to the aft deck, there is
room for several furniture arrangements and entertaining is easy with
the built-in wet bar, sink and ice maker. The flybridge can seat up to
three pilot chairs and has built-in lounge seating for six. Additional
features include a swim platform, radar arch and a particularly
attractive optional hardtop that can be enclosed with glass
windshields and hydraulic windows.
The hull bottom is solid fiberglass, designed as a semi-displacement
that will provide excellent fuel economy at low RPM. Cummins 635-hp
diesels are standard and will cruise the Novatec 55' Millennium at a
steady 21 knots and reach a top speed of around 24 knots.
