Sheer elegance is the best way to describe the Waterline 55. The exquisitely styled three cabin layout is light and spacious.

The 55 is a perfect boat for a family to live aboard and explore the oceans of the world. With a comfortable 225 mile a day pace, passage making can be swift and exhilarating. Utilization of in-boom furling for the main and single-line control for the staysail make handling the 55 in rough water uncomplicated. Tacking is as simple as turning a wheel.

Ultimate strength and elegance combine to make the Waterline 55 a perfect family world voyager.
