Presented in the 2002 season, the Alfamarine 58 is an 18 metre classic open sports yacht much loved by the Central and South Italian customer, but not only as classic open yachts are lately getting higher market rating. Classic in lines and design, this performing yacht is full of modern technological solutions, like the extended bathing platform, the deck passage way aft or the stylish streamlined radar arch design.
The exterior of this yacht speaks for the inside, as we have what is a classic interior layout with 3 cabins all with there own separate head. Master cabin is forward and 2 identical guest cabins feature mid ships with 2 in line berths each. Interior dining area is a comfortable C-shaped settee to starboard. Galley is to port and is hidden by clean wooden top, becoming invisible when the cooking is over. A crew cabin with shower head is located aft.
Cockpit space is one of the winners for the 58. Outside it features a c-shaped settee to starboard, one of the most spacious in this size dimensions. An exterior wet bar and galley is located to port, just behind the comfortable dark blue finished helm station. A 4 person sunbed is located aft. While another sunbed is located forward on deck. Tender stowage is on the bathing platform.
The Alfamarine hull is designed around the highly rated Renato Sonny Levi deep V-design. If you want head turning performance I suggest you take the optional surface drive, but still standard Caterpillar engines and shafts give 36 knots of top speed with 30 knots cruising. Sea keeping is excellent with a personal preference for shaft drives in big heads seas. Still the Arneson surface drives would handle most solutions in the best of manners and also provide for better fuel economy and an extended range.
