New Model: Maritimo M50 Motoryacht

One of the most successful flybridge motor yachts that Maritimo has produced, the M48 Cruising Motoryacht, has undergone a complete makeover and the new larger and more refined M50 Motoryacht is its new replacement model.  Before the first M50 Motoryacht was completed there were two sales in the USA as a result of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and discussions are underway with other prospective purchasers. The first M50 has now been produced and delivered in the United States.  The original M48 has been one of the company's most successful models with more than one hundred sold internationally and satisfied owners now using their M48 in places as far away as Italy, Spain, the UK, the USA and the UAE. The new look M50 cruising motor yacht takes the tried and proven and enhances it even further thanks to a longer hull and new features as a full beam midships owners cabin, and an astern galley configuration. The M50 Motoryacht builds on Maritimo's latest novelties of an enclosed flybridge design, internal staircase, and safe walk around decks.  Power for the M50 Motoryacht is twin Volvo 670hp engines, so far no speeds are announced but Maritimo said in its first testing run the new model registered a 10% saving versus the M48 model it replaces.
