53 Super Sport
Length w/ Pulpit:
Replacing the popular 55 Super Sport in 1991, the 53 Super Sport was built on an all-new Ocean hull design with a sharper entry and slightly increased transom deadrise. The hull changes make the Ocean 53 a generally better head-sea boat than her predecessor with a notably drier ride. Several floorplans were offered over the years, and while three-stateroom layouts have been the most popular, a two-stateroom, galley-down version with a dinette delivers an extremely spacious salon. Although the deckhouse dimensions are slightly smaller than the 55 Super Sport model she replaced, theres plenty of room for entertaining, and the luxurious furnishings and teak woodwork create a very inviting atmosphere. A transom door was standard in the cockpit, and the fish box was repositioned behind the chair for improved access to the rudder posts. Competitively priced, additional features include a factory hardtop, a well-arranged (but not overly spacious) engine room, and cockpit controls. Note the absence of the exterior teak trim seen in most previous Ocean models. Twin 760hp 8V92 Detroits cruise at 26 knots (2930 top), and optional 820hp MANs (very popular) cruise at a fast 30 knots (3334 knots top).
