The Gulfstream Yachts 52 is a luxury fishing and cruising yacht that combines the maneuverability of a center-console with the benefits of a sportfish. The 360 degree walk-around center-console has a large air-conditioned/heated enclosure that includes the helm, dining area, seating and access to the cabin. The 52 was born from the collaboration between two of the most highly respected superyacht architects in the industry- Ward Setzer and Michael Peters Yacht Design. The result is a truly unique and innovative center-console hybrid that maximizes your comfort on the water. Versatile in its nature, the Gulfstream 52 can be used as a cutting-edge tournament fishing yacht or as a luxury tender to your luxury superyacht.
The look and shape of the Gulfstream 52 is distinctive for many reasons, but you cannot overlook the special design and construction used on the hull. The hull is foam-filled diab core, vector ply and resin infused resulting in a safer, stronger and more durable hull than similar boats. It also reduces the flex or rattle that is often heard in center-consoles when going through choppy water. Additionally, each Gulfstream Yacht is designed with a Stepped "V" ventilated tunnel (SVVT) hull technology which remains the cutting-edge practice in today's high-end yacht builders. The SVVT hull reduces planing time, increases speed, and provides greater fuel efficiency.
One of the big advantages of the Gulfstream 52 is the ability to step out of the elements into the comfort of an air-conditioned salon. The sliding door near the helm reveals a spacious interior that includes a king-sized berth or twin beds. The electrically-actuated table in the salon can also be changed out for a larger table that lowers and provides a queen-sized bed for guests. With the large windows in the enclosure, guests sleeping overnight on the queen-sized berth want their privacy, particularly if staying at a marina overnight. Gulfstream developed an innovative approach and with the push of a button, all of the windows except the windshield turn opaque.
Moving down in the interior accommodations, the amount of headroom is immediately noticeable. With the outdoor galley in place in the cockpit there is no need for an additional galley in the cabin. There is also an abundance of storage opportunities in the cabin along both sides, in hanging lockers, as well as underneath the berth cushions. There is an entirely separate head, shower and sink as well.
Built to the absolute highest quality, the performance of the 52 is unquestionably superior and must be experienced to truly appreciate.
