Summit MotorYachts is excited to announce the arrival of the new SUMMIT 54' - the inaugural planing hull motoryacht from the same parent company that has brought you the Krogen brand for over 40 years.
While the postponement of the Palm Beach International Boat Show has delayed her official debut, the team from Power & Motoryacht (PMY) magazine was on-hand at the offload of the SUMMIT 54' from the cargo ship, and then joined the delivery crew on her journey from Savannah, Georgia to Stuart, Florida.
Sea trials were conducted last week on the Summit 54’, the flagship model of SUMMIT MotorYachts. True to her Michael Peters Yacht Design (MPYD) pedigree, the Summit 54’ performed flawlessly, achieving her design parameters of a cruise speed of 23 knots and WOT speed of 26 knots. As is typical, trials were conducted with half fuel and water, however instead of the usual 3-4 people on board, there were 15, making the trials a resounding success. Hull number one will be on display at the Palm Beach International Boat show March 26-29, 2020. Click here for a video of the sea trials.

You may not know Summit MotorYachts—not yet at least—but you certainly know its parent company, Kadey-Krogen, and their world-respected, long-range cruisers. According to the builder, its new line of planing motoryachts is a reflection of market trends and a thirst from younger boaters for Kadey-Krogen livability coupled with a bit more wind in their hair.
