Overview Description

The Symbol 557 Pilothouse Yacht's accommodations feature 2 private staterooms with two heads (each with stall showers and master includes tub arrangement). It has a spacious main salon with wetbar - entertainment center and large pilothouse with adjacent galley - dinette. Exterior areas are equally well engineered for easy access to and from the bow. The cockpit floor has been raised which provides a larger lazarette for equipment - storage. The bulwarks on the entire boat have been raised and combined with a larger, extended wheel house, resulting in a longer, sleeker overall profile line. In addition, the integrated swim step has been extended, the hull is one-piece hand laid-up, and a deep keel provides a soft ride and excellent seakeeping abilities.
