Revolver Boats is ready to launch its latest product: the Revolver 44GT. The builder says the core concept underlying the new Revolver 44GT is the idea of transferring the qualities of a grand touring car to the sea.
“The Revolver 44GT showcases a unique and revolutionary mix of ‘power & cruise’, under the banner of sophisticated design,” reads a statement.
The new Revolver 44GT is equipped with the two Cummins diesel 550 HP engines paired with Arneson Surface Drives. The builder says the boat can reach over 60mho at light load, and over 50 mph at half load.
The GT has distinctive features throughout including the rear air vents with ‘shark’ cut reminiscent of high-end cars from the 1960s and the bow with LED lights built into the protective and powerful fender rail that defines the profile.
The exteriors are by Alberto Mancini (AM Yacht Design), who also developed the interiors inspired on the 42R model designed by Michael Peters (MPYD – Michael Peters Yacht Design).
The interior layout focuses on the large central structure that houses the control panel and helm station. This has been significantly modified from the sporty 42R for a new sense of symmetry and sophisticated convenience, in true automotive style.
The separate captain and co-pilot seats are custom designed with a sporty carbon look and are both comfortable and functional.
The ergonomic central console between them houses the control panel, including Garmin’s latest-generation touch-screens instruments for easy and safe navigation.
Another key feature of the 44GT is air conditioning (thanks to the 5.0KW generator), a glass roof (electronically operable) as well as a rear glass door that opens up (hiding away in the engine room). The whole operation happens wirelessly and only takes a few seconds.
In addition, construction technology has taken to the highest standard. The hull, roof, and all the structural elements (floor, struts, and bulkheads) are vacuum molded. The resin is vinyl ester; the lamination is a sandwich of Corecell with E-glass biaxial glass-fibre fabric.. The hard top is structural carbon, with exposed bulkheads just like those found in high-end cars. The builder chose Esthec flooring for the deck in a smoke colour, as it claims to substantially reduce solar heat gain.
