According to a recent news release, Apollonian Yachts is a new boat brand created as a collaboration between esteemed naval architect Howard Apollonio and experienced boat broker and yacht salesman Vic Parcells.

The Apollonian 52 can reach a top speed of 21 knots and cruises effortlessly between 12 and 18 knots. At comfortable cruising speeds the Apollonian 52 has a range of 447 nautical miles with a 10% fuel reserve.

The Apollonian 52 uses a traditional raised pilothouse design to maximize comfort and accommodations. Using superior materials and building techniques while keeping the cost reasonable is essential to the Apollonian Yachts program. The entire hull and deck are cored with closed cell foam and vacuum infused for strength, weight savings, insulation and sound dampening.

Each Apollonian Yacht model comes fully equipped and ready to go with a long list of standard equipment.

Packed with features and richly appointed, the Apollonian 52 delivers quality, comfort, and value, in an easy to manage fifty-foot motor yacht.

The main salon is a comfortable gathering area with a large lounge, a coffee table and cabinetry of finely finished American Cherry with exquisite, burled tops. A 42″ TV on a lift and Bose Surround Sound provide entertainment.

The full featured galley is complete with household sized appliances in Stainless Steel. Highlights include a Refrigerator freezer, microwave, 4 burner electric stovetop, full-sized oven with convection, trash compactor, dishwasher, and a deep double sink. Plenty of storage and wide Corian counters with access to both the salon and the adjacent pilothouse dinette make food preparation and serving easy.

The pilothouse is the central access point as well as a gathering area that includes a comfortable dinette adjacent to both the helm and galley. A plush single helm seat can face the table or is in easy reach of all controls and the standard Garmin electronics package. This area has access to the day head, and the side deck through a watertight door and convenient stairways lead up to the flybridge and down to the cabin deck.
