The Revolver 44GT Yacht is a 14-meter grand tourer of the sea with a top speed in excess of 60 mph and more than a splash of supercar styling
Revolver Boats have a motto ‘We change the rules of the game’ and looking at the 44GT they are well on their way to doing this. The words supercar, Italian styling, high performance make you think of sleek styling with beautiful lines and now Revolver Boats have taken these aspects and combined them into an innovative high performance sea-going vessel reminiscent of the ultimate grand tourers of the automobile world. The end result is an elite, high performance vessel with exciting sporty lines, comfort and safety, and an optimal range for long crossings.
The Revolver 44GT showcases a unique and revolutionary mix of “power & cruise”, under the banner of sophisticated design. It is the perfect balance of luxury, avant-garde technology, and innovation – the result is stunning. The new Revolver 44GT is first and foremost a powerful, high performance boat. However, it is not a “normal” powerboat; it is an impressive display of raw power and speed, great range, functionality, and comfort. All of this has been made possible by the technical choices made by the Revolver technical team, starting with the two Cummins diesel 550 HP engines paired with Arneson Surface Drives. The GT has distinctive features throughout including the deployable rear air vents reminiscent of high-end cars from the 1960s and the bow with original LED lights built into the protective and powerful fender rail that defines the profile.
The exteriors are by Alberto Mancini (AM Yacht Design), a young but already acclaimed Italian designer. The interiors are by Michael Peters (MPYD – Michael Peters Yacht Design) and represent an evolution over the 42R, introducing new stylistic elements to ensure the Revolver 44GT is even more innovative and cutting edge. Mancini wanted to emphasize that unmistakable dynamic quality, referencing car design in the exterior lines as well as interior detailing.
The interior layout focuses on the large central structure that houses the control panel and helm station. This has been significantly modified from the sporty 42R for a new sense of symmetry and sophisticated convenience, in true automotive style. The separate captain and co-captain seats are custom designed with a carbon look and are both comfortable and functional. The ergonomic central console between them houses the control panel, including large, latest-generation Garmin touch screens for navigation. The helm station has an integrated dual monitoring system, for greater security, that also interfaces with the navigation screens. And of course, there is an iPad dock station that controls the multi-zone HIFI system for the different areas of the vessel. Behind the helm station there are four passenger chairs that pick up on the aesthetics of the captain and co-captain chairs. Below deck, in the bow, there is a large perimeter sofa that can be converted into a double bed by folding down the table, as well as a kitchen and minibar. A surprising feature is the spacious bathroom with “rain shower” with unusually high ceilings for this class of boat.
The sporty look is perfectly mirrored by the high performance of this grand tourer of the sea. The new Revolver 44GT is equipped with two diesel Cummins 550 HP engines each paired with Arneson Surface Drives. These ensure great agility and flexibility as well as performance and high cruising speed. Revolver 44GT can easily exceed a maximum speed of 50 knots in total comfort and safety. Because of its performance and design excellence, the flagship Revolver 44GT caters to demanding boatowners who appreciate aesthetic and technological beauty. Another surprise is how easy it is to drive. You don’t have to be an offshore world champion to enjoy and take full advantage of this boat’s high quality technology and performance.
This boat’s sophisticated construction, intended to impart the utmost in structural rigidity while minimizing weight, is definitely noteworthy. The hull, roof, and all the structural elements (floor, struts, and bulkheads) are vacuum molded. The resin is vinyl ester; the lamination is a sandwich of Corecell® with E-glass biaxial glass-fiber fabric, and stiffeners are placed along the major structural members with unidirectional and multi-axial carbon fabric. The hard top is structural carbon, with exposed bulkheads just like those found in elite cars.
Technology and aesthetics also go neck and neck in the flooring. Here, the use of Esthec® enables innovative and dynamic edge designs. The material was chosen because it is environmentally friendly and almost maintenance free. The smoke color substantially reduces solar heat gain.
