New Model: Blu Martin ST48

Blu Martin was one of the first Italian builders to put itself on the map for less to fifteen meters hard top sport crusiers, and today deserving so the comnpany features a line up of six models all with an integrated hard top minus one.  The new ST 48 presented at the fall of 2011, marks a gap fill for Blu Martin between the the larger 52, and smaller successful 13.90 Sea Top.  In a length just a bit short to fifty feet the Blu Martin 48 ST offers a very impressive three cabins plan, with a large owners suite to fore, and two guest rooms to midship.  The living is all dedicated on the main deck, with a dining table seating six.  All the areas of the Blu Martin ST 48 are in fact made for making six persons living in comfort.  Power as many areas of the ST 48 and all Blu Martin models comes in a large choice offer from five engines starting at 370 up to 575hp from Volvo, Cummins, and Yanmar, and three propulsion choices; IPS pods, ZF Zeus, and traditional line shafts.
