KETEL TWO | Austin Parker 54 Flybridge | 54ft


South Dartmouth, MA, US


KETEL TWO is a gorgeous yacht with a unique and distinctive design that turns heads wherever she goes.  The look is contemporary but still eminently practical. The term ‘express cruiser’ truly applies, with an easy 30 knot cruise and gobs of entertaining space on deck between the cockpit, pilothouse/salon and the flybridge.

Without doubt this sporty express cruiser ticks just about every box today’s market demands: easy docking with bow and stern thrusters (without the added complexity and maintenance of pod drives); innovative swim platform that lowers into the water to become ‘the beach’;  a tender garage - truly an elegant solution to the age old dilemma of what to do with the tender;  FAST cruise with twin 900 hp Man diesels; a dynamite layout on deck that allows for indoor and outdoor living and entertaining for a gaggle of family and friends by joining the pilothouse/salon and cockpit seamlessly; a twin seat at the helm; an insanely nice owner’s cabin forward with an awesome head with separate stall shower; comfortable seating for six to eight to have dinner al fresco in the cockpit; a galley with full height refrigerator- and the list goes on!

She is a large-volume yacht with lovely appointments including painted and textured surfaces that are soothing and inviting, which fully exhibit the best of Italian design and execution. And last but not least this Austin Parker boast three cabins and three heads - rare in this size range. Bravo!!

Austin Parker’s CEO is Sebastiano “Gianni” Gravagno, who, to say the least, is an industry leader and veteran with an incredible track record of success. As Commercial Director of Chris Craft in the seventies he oversaw the production of over 500 boats per year. In the eighties he became the sole sales manager of Mochi Craft, a shipyard of 120 boats per year ranging in size from 33 to 56 feet. Other success came by way of opening the Italian market to American brands by becoming the sole importer of Bertram, Cigarette and Blackfin. Gianni then created his own shipyard Antago, which produced 85 yachts and went on to found Cantieri Abati Yachts as well as Cantieri Austin Parker. Austin Parker specializes in semi-custom construction, allowing for a high degree of personalization in each boat. This, along with excellent build-quality, sets an Austin Parker apart from the rest of the competition from both Europe and the US.


One level step in from the cockpit you enter a salon that exudes grace and comfort. A U-shaped settee to stbd has storage under and the table has two leaves to fold out to sit six or more for dinner. Opposite to port is along cabinet with TV on lift, and storage under for liquor and glasses. Up a step to the helm with a large double helm bench with flip up bolster for support if standing. The carbon helm console is well laid out and visibility from the helm is excellent. Two overhead deck hatches serve as skylights for added light and air in the cabin.

Down several stairs is a beautiful galley which has a cathedral ceiling effect under the overhang of the windshields. There is a large single basin polished stainless steel sink, plenty of counter space, a four-burner electric cooktop and microwave convection oven. Forward is a full-size refrigerator and freezer with painted panels as covers to match the interior decor. Two opening portlights and an oven vent add air.

Three staterooms below include a master cabin forward with the island berth offset to port, large windows, two opening portlights and lockers and hanging locker. There is direct access to an en-suite head with large ceramic basin sink, bidet, toilet, and tiled stall shower with waterfall head and shower wand.

Across from the galley is a day head with sink, toilet, and tiled stall shower. Down two steps you find matching guest cabins to port and stbd, each with two twin beds. Plumbing is ready in a cabinet for your future washer/drier.

All bedrooms and the salon have TVs. The interior decor is a mix of fabric textured and lacquer painted surfaces.

On the exterior, there is a submersible swim platform and up three stairs through a transom door into the cockpit which features a long L shaped settee to stbd with two movable stools and a table to sit six or eight for cocktails and dinner. There is a cockpit fridge to port. The deck walkways are wide and look great in teak decking. A huge sun pad is secured to the bow. The flybridge has a U-shaped settee to stbd with hi-lo table and a double bench seat at the helm.

A captain’s cabin is located under the stbd settee seat in the cockpit and features a berth, shower, toilet and fold-down sink. At present, this space is used for storage.
