Neptunus,a Holland based boat builder, was founded in 1970 by a Dutch yachting enthusiast, who unable to find the tyope of boat he wanted, decided to build his own boat, a 37' twin keel cruiser called the Neptunus 107. The success of the 107 ( Over 300 Built/Sold) led to the development of larger boats,and by the early 1980's Neptunus had expanded into the greater European market. In 1989, with a growing based American market, the Holland based Neptunus made it's move into the North American market by building a production facility in Ontario, Canada and ALL Neptunus models sold new in the US were built at the Canadian yard,
POWERBOAT GUIDE COMMENTS
"Her angular lines are typical of many European motor yachts of her era; a rakish design with a sweptback profile, an extended flybridge, and a split-level salon with the galley and dinette forward. Essentially a semi-custom yacht, several interior arrangements were offered in the 55 although a three-stateroom, two-head layout is typical. A lower helm was optional, and the interior is very nicely finished and appointed. The cockpit is completely shaded by the extended flybridge, and wide walkways make it easy to get around the deck. Topside, the flybridge is arranged with the centerline helm forward with a wet bar,grille and lounge seating aft. The transom platform can accommodate an 11-foot tender. Twin 550-hp 6V92 Detroits cruise the Neptunus 55 in the low 20s"
