Maritimo M54

The brand-new 2018 Maritimo 54 recently arrived in the Pacific Northwest from Down Under, ready to hit the water running. This modern, sporty luxury cruiser is the larger sister ship of the successful Maritimo 48 and comes with more space and features.

Immediately notable design elements of the exterior are the spacious, fully enclosed flybridge and skylounge aimed at enabling year-long boating. The flybridge and skylounge are almost fully enclosed with glass, including a retractable sunroof, to really let in the views. A covered “Romeo and Juliet” deck aft has a railing with an array of rod holders for those after fresh seafood. An internal, enclosed staircase leads one between the flybridge and the salon below. Why brave the elements between the two nav stations?

The main level cockpit is covered with bench seating against the transom. A hydraulic swim platform aft is accessible via walkways on both the port and starboard sides of the island-style transom. The deep well walkaround decks are a great consideration that will make hustling for fenders and dock lines easier and safer.

The interior has plenty more to boast about with a full-beam Master Suite and fully-loaded aft galley. The large, generously windowed salon was specifically designed to give every seat an outdoor view, so there shouldn’t be a bad seat to be found. The bi-fold doors are a nice touch to open the salon to the cockpit. The mezzanine level above the master has lockers, drawers, a full-length mirror, and vanity. Guests are accommodated in a forward suite, bunks to starboard, and a day head easily accessed by both areas.

Maritimo M54 SpecsThe Maritimo 54 is meant to be a true oceangoing vessel with a reported (by the manufacturer) cruising speed of over 25 knots and a top speed of around 30 knots. At the 25-knot cruising range, the M54 is supposed to be able to travel over 500 nautical miles. When cruising at the more conservative seven knots, the range goes up to over 2,000 nautical miles.

Whether you’re looking for speed for a day trip or ready to put in some miles on an extended passage, the 2018 Maritimo M54 has got you covered. She is built for both fair seas and foul.
