The flyer 5.5 SPACEdeck is an astonishingly spacious and uncompromising dayboat carrying 6 people on board for a wide variety of programmes. She is easy to transport on a trailer and features lots of options that make this a very personal outboard speedboat.
Just over 5 metres long, Flyer 5.5 SPACEdeck is characterized by an extensive bow,
profiled lateral struts and elegant windshield design. Taking inspiration from car industry codes,
her silhouette is sporty and incisive. She is open with a central console,
offering a very clear deck with large walkways for safe and easy movement. Her special V-shaped hull,
very narrow at the bow, deflects water perfectly to the rear.
An orange line common to all the Flyer SPACEdeck’s is the signature mark of this model.
Developed by Beneteau Powerboat, the Flyer 5.5 SPACEdeck cleverly combines the pleasure of sailing with the practicality of lots of equipment. Her hull is equipped with the latest generation of AirStep® ensuring safety and driving sensations. Beneteau’s partner, Suzuki, offers a wide selection of engines.
Extended as far as possible, the deck area allows very easy movement. Safety is further enhanced by high freeboards. The central driving console is compact and protects well.
The large aft bench converts into a sun lounger and two large storage areas to bow, making her a very pleasant outboard speedboat to spend time on. For relaxation she has an ice box, hammock, water-skiing mast and Bimini top.
AIR STEP® 2
By increasing the air inflow beneath the hull, the Air Step® 2 represents a considerable development of this technology that increases performance, safety and cruising comfort. While reducing fuel consumption, she accelerates faster and speed is augmented. This latest generation of a patent that has already proved its worth also offers excellent sea-keeping, simpler passage through the waves, linear acceleration and easily handled curves. The ‘air cushion’ effect aft of the hull procures amazing comfort.
