Maritimo 50 ; Boatpoint picks Martimo 50 over Riviera 50 for best in class 2013
January 1, 2014 by Maritimo 48
David Lockwood of Boatpoint has come along with his Best 13 boat picks for 2013.
His pick for Best Australia Flybridge is as expected the Maritimo 50. No doubt he picked the Maritimo over the Riviera 50 for all the same reasons that I have laid out in my own previous posts.
This is what he had to say.
BEST AUSTRALIA FLYBRIDGE
Maritimo M50 Cruising Motoryacht
Replacing the M48 of which 108 were built, the new Maritimo M50 Cruising Motoryacht
is a way better boat that achieves the amazing by fitting a full-beam master stateroom below decks while retaining shaft drives. It’s the clincher that makes the M50 a one-of-a-kind in the 50-footer flybridge league.
Given what it achieves within its footprint, the deeper level of design and the improved quality, we’ll go so far as to say this new M50 could be the best Maritimo of all time. Your search ends here, but the journey has only just begun.
At the time of testing, the M50 was priced from $1.39 million with 670hp Volvo D11 engines and a boatload of standard inclusions include bow and stern thrusters, 17.5kVa Onan, 4kW inverter and more.
