The Ocean 55 Super Sport combined two essential elements of any modern tournament fisherman—speed and beauty. Her long foredeck, unbroken sheerline, and sleek cabin profile are classic Jersey styling characteristics, and her 30 knot performance was a remarkable feat in the early 1980s for a production boat this size. Below decks, the 55’s three-stateroom interior with three heads and deckhouse galley (Plan A) proved more popular with owners than the three-stateroom, mid-galley version (Plan B) with two heads and a more spacious salon. Note that the 55 was restyled in 1986 with a new flybridge, a solid front windshield, and a black mask running around the deckhouse. The foredeck seat was also eliminated in 1986 for a more streamlined appearance. Whereas most big sportfishermen in this size range require the heavier 12-cylinder diesels to reach (or even approach) the magic 30 knot number, the Ocean 55 SS got the job done with lighter, more efficient (and far less expensive) 8V92s. Top speed with the 735hp versions of the 8V92s is 31 knots, and she’ll cruise at a fast 27 knots. A total of 170 of these yachts were built making her the most popular Ocean models ever produced.
