Trade-a-Boat editor Jeff Strang tours the new sedan-style Maritimo S50.

We re-visit the Martimo S50 on the Gold Coast after she made her debut at last year’s Sydney International Boat Show.



The "S" stands for sedan on the Maritimo S50. On sedan boats it is quite common for the engine room to be a tricky proposition to get right. On this boat, the engine room is best described as a really clean space (in "surgical white" according to Jeff Strang). There is plenty of room around the D11 670hp Volvo Penta shaft-drive engines.

Neatly fitted in the engine room is the watermaker which augments the 800lt freshwater tank as well as the 17.5kva Cummins Onan generator.

Maritimo builds its boats with the intention of keeping down the cost of boat ownership and according to Jeff Strang, this is evident in this space through good, hard-wearing, low maintenance, heavy duty equipment.



The sedan style of the Maritimo S50 gives the helm a sense of "inclusiveness". The helm station allows passengers to see what the skipper is doing and, if necessary, get involved in the action without interfering.



Warm, high gloss, varnished timber panels welcome guests to their accommodation. There is plenty of capacity for a family: a children’s cabin is located on the starboard side; a double VIP up for’ard the ensuite day accommodation is also located on the starboard side.



The Maritimo’s S50 very inviting master cabin is centrally located in full beam. It has en suite access at its top level along with spacious wardrobes and even a writing desk. A Queen-sized island berth with a somewhat unusual diagonal configuration changes the way space is used, offering space to walk around.
