Manufacturer and Model History
Neptunus is a Dutch company founded in 1970 and has built their their reputation in Europe with the production of quality yachts from 50' to 80'. In 1989, Neptunus opened their North American production facility in Ontario, Canada to produce product exclusively for the Americas. All Neptunus models built for the US market were made at the Ontario facility.
Model History:
Neptunus originally introduced this boat in 1993 as the 51 Motor Yacht. After a number of years in production, numerous updates and upgrades were made and the boat became known as the 55 Sedan Motor Yacht. This low volume, almost semi-custom boat (this is hull #19), was available with many different layouts and interior materials; no two boats seem to be exactly the same, which gives each example its identity and personality. The 55 remained in production until the introduction of the 56 Flybridge in the early 2000s.
The following is a bit of history on the manufacturer from the Neptunus web site:
Neptunus Yachts has a proud tradition of building world leading semi-custom yachts that are rich in style and detail, yet designed for dependability and performance.
 From its roots as a Dutch builder of motoryachts with a 35-year heritage, Neptunushas grown to be a leading North American manufacturer of yachts from 50 to 80 feet in length. 
 The Neptunus shipyard is located in St. Catharines, Ontario: only 45 minutes from the Buffalo, NY airport.  The 72,000-square-foot facility on 7 acres (situated near the Welland Canal and Lake Ontario) is staffed with skilled trades people - many of whom have more than 20 years experience in the yacht building industry.  Their skill and commitment are the foundation of each and every vessel that we deliver.
 Over the years, we have earned a reputation based upon a passion for building a quality vessel for each owner. Neptunus customers are involved in the yacht building process from beginning to end, and our goal is to ensure that each customer feels their new Neptunus motoryacht is truly the best yacht they have ever owned.  In fact, many of our customers are now on their second or thirdNeptunus yacht.
 At Neptunus, our passion for excellence and commitment to continuous improvement in processes and technologies underscores our resolve to exceed the expectations of each and every customer.
Construction Details
The hull is constructed with a solid fiberglass bottom using E-glass fiberglass cloth, premium-grade gel-coat, modern resins. The hull sides are foam cored for reduced weight, increased strength, outstanding insulation properties and for improved structural integrity . The stringer system is a fiberglass composite system laminated into the hull while the hull is still in mold. The decks and deck house are of molded construction using the same premium gel-coat and resins as the hull and are also foam cored. The hull to deck joint is a "shoe box" design for greater strength. There a five main partial bulkheads. The hull does feature a 3/4 length keel that is approximately 9" deep.
Interior Walk-Thru
The vessel is entered via the cockpit thru a stainless steel framed sliding glass door. Upon entering the salon, you will find a large L-shaped settee with dinette table to port. Opposite on starboard, there are built-in cabinets running down the side of the salon with an entertainment center aft. Moving forward on starboard and up three step, there is a lower helm on starboard and an L-shaped galley on port. Forward and down three steps on center-line you enter the passageway to the stateroom area. The boat has three staterooms with two heads. The master is located in the bow and features a center-line queen berth and an en-suite head with stall shower. The two guest quarters split off the main passageway aft of the master. The guest staterooms are virtual mirror images of one another, each with two single berths, TV and hanging lockers. There is a single guess head, forward of the port guess stateroom, with stall shower. (Please note in the pictures, the wall covering in the staterooms have come unglued. The seller is willing to give an allowance to resecure the material or to recover the panels in a material provided by the new owners)
 Rich cherry wood, emerald green carpet and beige ultra-leather settee gives the salon aboard "lsland Lady" a warm and handsome feel. The aft sliding glass door and large stainless steel framed windows that surround the area provide superb views and plenty of natural lighting. This is a very inviting space.

Broker's Comments
The Neptunus 55 is a thoughtfully arranged and well executed vessel with a European flair. The boat has accommodations for three couples to weekend or vacation aboard. On deck, I find the boat safe and easy to get around. The aft deck overhang gives plenty of shade to the raised cockpit area. The flybridge is accessed via molded steps to starboard at the fore end of the cockpit. The flybridge features a centerline helm forward with plenty of seating and a wet bar aft. Engine access is from a large hydraulically operated hatch in the cockpit. The engines are forward, under the salon, with very good access.
 "Island Lady" has been lightly used and fairly kept. Her interior is very clean and shows little evidence of use. However, all three staterooms suffer from issues with the wall coverings. The glue used to attach the material has failed and the coverings have come loose (see pictures), presumably due to the Florida heat. The seller is aware of the issue and is willing to give an allowance to recover.  Mechanically the boat seems quite sound and the engines visually appear well kept. A new owner should be prepared to do a bottom job and basic engine maintenance such as fluid changes.
 The Company offers the details of this vessel in good faith but cannot guarantee or warrant the accuracy of this information nor warrant the condition of the vessel. A buyer should instruct his agents, or his surveyors, to investigate such details as the buyer desires validated. This vessel is offered subject to prior sale, price change, or withdrawal without notice.
