The More 55 is characterised by a modern design and this reflected in the hull, appendages and deck layout as well as the sail plan which has been studied very carefully. The deck shows a great attention to the details; all the control lines have been hidden into the proper recess to give all the comforts of a flush deck.
The interiors have been designed taking care of each detail, looking at the best ergonomic layout to give to the owner a unique feeling, as well as the option of several interior layouts with up to 5 cabins plus crew cabin possible.
From the structural point of view, the More 55 is designed to be stiff and to withstand the natural loadings from the rig and keel. The hull has been laminated with an optimised lay-up including unidirectional and biaxial glass fibres. Different densities of foam core have been used in the different areas of the hull and deck to assure the proper balance between weight and stiffness, for example in the forward area, where there are high slamming loads, a high-density core has been used in combination with single skin laminate. Single skin laminates are also used in areas of through-hull fittings etc.
The central structure of the boat is dominated by a stainless steel frame sitting beneath the saloon sole which is designed to take the high loads from the mast, shrouds and keel and transfer them smoothly and efficiently to the hull. This frame is connected mechanically to the bulkheads. The remaining structure of the boat is made by longitudinal and transversal stiffeners laminated in a female mould with a combination of glass bi-axial end carbon unidirectional fibres, glued and tabbed to the hull.
All the bulkheads are made of plywood apart collision bulkheads which are located fore and aft, both of which are made of a composite material to offer a better resistance with less weight.
The T-fin keel is assembled with a cast iron fin and a lead bulb. The keel is then laminated in GRP to ensure accurate foil geometry. The appendages have been designed to have the best sailing performances with perfect manoeuvrability. The rudder is also supported by a stainless steel stock, and the rudder quadrant is easily accessible at deck level for increased safety and ease of maintenance.
Maurizio Cossutti designed the More Boats 55 the only way Italians know how to design – to be beautiful. The modern lines and elegant features are emphasised with vertical backward inclining of the bow. Both the exterior and the interior profit from aligned windows which give the exterior a sporty, somewhat mischievous look, and privacy with natural lighting to the interior.
Since the yacht was designed to accommodate comfortably the crew during leisure sailing, to offer enough eating and lounging area to 12 people, it had to offer also enough space in the cockpit for the crew participating in a regatta. The yacht has several versions, and the future owner can choose among the three general versions with additional features available upon request, all in terms of possible offers. To achieve so much space without adding to the height of the cabins and overall yacht appearance, it took a lot of skill and knowledge, which is the best description of the cooperation between More Boats and Cossutti Design.

When it comes to the interior the main drive was to create high quality classic interior with a modern touch.
Everything that you see inside the boat was selected and made with attention given to detail, quality and functionality. First and foremost it was important to create woodwork of the highest possible quality, made from real teak handpicked in Burma, dried for two years and then treated.
It blends together in a perfect harmony of colours and lines to make you feel like home. All furniture for More 55 is made by one of the best luxury yachts factories in the world, Bobic Yacht and Aircraft Interiors.
All furniture is additionally protected with two extra layers of varnish. Plywood is marine Okoume of the highest quality.

This layout is perfect for families with children. You will get a comfort, but also enough space to accommodate 6 to 8 people. Each cabin has its own ensuite toilette which gives you privacy and comfort. Big kitchen and saloon area will make your sailing perfect while you enjoy cooking fresh food or having fun in the saloon in the evenings. Outside you will have a big storage area or skippers cabin depending on your wishes. You can choose to have a crew cabin with heads forward or a larger sail locker.
4-cabin version is a good compromise between a family and charter boat. This version has 4 cabins and 4 toilettes, large kitchen and saloon area, and outside sail locker or skippers cabin.
This is a pure charter version in which there are 5 inner cabins, 3 heads, large kitchen and saloon, plus skipper cabin or sail locker. If you want to have a boat as an investment, this is a perfect layout for you. It will provide a long charter life to your boat and long season.
