Improve-it = Maritimo 440 Offshore Convertible

Maritimo presents a new engine propulsion choice to its 440 Offshore Convertible now offer with the choices of traditional shaft drive propulsion.  The Maritimo 440 Offshore Convertible was launched last year 2010, breaking new ground for a 44 feet flybridge sportfish cruiser thanks to its three-sided enclosed flybridge and internal staircase and an aft galley with bi-fold doors to the cockpit.  The 440 Offshore Convertible was also the first flybridge boat from Maritimo to utilise the Volvo Penta IPS pod drive system. Now the company has introduced more choices to its customers offering the option of shaft drive propulsion, who can select between Volvo Penta IPS600 forward looking dual propellers pod drive with 435hp turbo diesel engines, or Cummins QSB 5.9 480hp with shafts.  In both choices everything remains the same above the waterline of the 440 Offshore Convertible from the three separate cabins sleeping five to the storage space.  In both engines the Maritimo 440 Offshore Convertible can cruise close to 350 nautical miles at around 22 knots and well over 1,000 nm at trolling speed.
