I was asked by some trade colleagues who are distributors for Maritimo in Europe and Asia (amongst other places) to sell this boat for a client of theirs. So I went along to do the specification without any particular expectations but I am now a huge Maritimo fan! On a practical level, the equipment fitted is so logically placed and easily reached that servicing is much easier than on comparable sized yachts. The layout is designed for ease of use and the enclosed flybridge is a revelation; on a sunny but cool February morning, I was very happy to spend time on the upper deck in bright sunshine. A must see if you are looking for something up to 65'.
