Popular Cruising Yachts from
50 to 55 Feet Long Overall
Their Physical Properties & Key Performance Indicators

Welcome to this ever-growing gallery of some of the most popular cruising yachts between 50 and 55 feet (15.2m to 16.8m) long overall.

Large, well-equipped production cruising yachts of this size can cross oceans in relative comfort and speed, but you'll need deep pockets to operate and maintain them.

Not only will their systems be powerful, complex and power-hungry but they'll need equally powerful and complex charging regimes to keep everything up and running. Regular maintenance and upkeep will be even more essential than it is on smaller vessels.

Gallant 53

The British sailor, Dame Naomi James, was the first woman to sail solo around the globe via the great clipper route (ie around Cape Horn) on her Gallant 50 'Express Crusader'.


Irwin 54

The Irwin 54 centre-cockpit cruising yacht is known for being easy to sail short-handed with more space above and below deck than you will find on most other yachts of the same size. 


Amel 54

Many sailors would describe this Amel 54 as a cutter-rigged ketch, but the correct terminology is a staysail ketch.
