Summit 54

The maker of renowned trawlers introduces an accommodation-rich motoryacht with a 23-knot cruise speed.

A collaboration between the folks at Kadey-Krogen Yachts and yacht designer Michael Peters, the new Summit 54 combines the comfort and cruise-readiness of a trawler and the speed of a motoryacht. Imagine three staterooms, two heads, a flybridge and a 26-knot top speed. And a range of 330 miles at 23 knots.

Launched under the new brand Summit MotorYachts, the Summit 54 places a high value on outdoor living, with three open-air spots. The cockpit includes a C-shaped transom settee with a table, a grill and a bar that blends with the interior galley when the window is open. On the bow is a doublewide sun lounge with an adjustable head — a sunshade can be deployed overhead — and a bench seat forward of the lounge. Up on the flybridge is a second helm, a forward lounge and a settee.

In the main cabin, the galley is to port and a breakfast nook/settee is to starboard, on the same level as the cockpit. Up two steps is the helm deck, which includes, obviously, the fully outfitted walnut and leather helm and a dining settee to port. The helm’s elevated position and glass all around give the captain and companions a solid all-around view.

A full-beam amidships master stateroom, a bow VIP and a third room that can be outfitted with a berth or as an office occupy the belowdecks space. The master has an en suite head and the VIP has direct access to the second head.

Parent company Kadey-Krogen has long gotten boaters to desired locations in comfort, and now Summit aims to do the same, though more than twice as quickly.
