The Maritimo M59 is all the way from Australia. She was designed by a very famous powerboat racer. One of her key features is the fully enclosed flybridge. The first thing that strikes you about this boat is the quality of the finish, she really is beautiful. the wood is very heavily varnished full gloss varnished woodwork, which looks great against the gleaming stainless steel.


The accommodation is quite unusual too. There's an island double cabin forwards, which which shares a toilet with a double twin guest cabin. However, the real masterpiece is the owner's cabin, which includes a very oddly shaped diagonal berth that really works very well indeed and maximises the space around the berth.

The racing heritage really shouts out at you when you look at the engine room. This is one of the cleanest engine bays I have ever seen, and with twin M13 Volvo 800 diesels on shafts and she looks really nice and easy to access down there.

The fully enclosed upper helm position, which is the only helm position on this boat, is what really sets it apart. You have a sunshine roof so you can be in the elements if you want, but you can seal the whole thing up to protect you in the heaviest of weather. As the Australian's would say 'mate, she's an absolute ripper.
