The 55 Yacht Fisherman is basically a Hi-Star 48 Sundeck with a cockpit extension, additional fuel, and an improved profile. A cockpit is a useful addition to just about any motor yacht as it provides convenient access to the water and easier boarding. The all-teak interior of the Hi-Star 55 is common to most Asian boats, and while the joinery is excellent, the built-in salon settee and dining table severely limit any furnishing options. Note that where many yachts this size have three staterooms, the Hi-Star has a two-stateroom floorplan with the galley and dinette down. This is a very wide-open layout with big staterooms and a full-size dinette, but the forward head compartment lacks a separate stall shower. Not only is the cockpit large, but the full-width aft deck is huge for a 55-foot yacht with enough room for entertaining a small crowd. A hardtop, radar arch, transom door, swim platform, and bow pulpit were standard, and a spacious engine room provides good access to the motors. Twin 375hp Cat diesels cruise the Hi-Star 55 Yacht Fisherman at 17–18 knots and reach a top speed of just over 20 knots.
