Maritimo calls its new M55, a “fine balance of power and play.” She was designed as a long-range flying bridge yacht with many of the features from the company’s M-series previous models, including the sharpened exterior lines and extensive entertainment areas.
A focus was placed on space that can accommodate a family in multiple gathering areas. In another nod toward long-range cruising, the fully enclosed climate-controlled sky lounge has an internal staircase. There’s also a large aft flying bridge deck with a full hardtop.
On deck, Maritimo designed an aft “adventure deck” and cockpit that has an al fresco upper area with easy flow and open walkways. An optional garage can accommodate a 3.0 meter (9.84’) tender. Moving into the salon, the feeling is open and airy, thanks to Maritimo’s two-stage sliding windows that create an indoor/outdoor scenario.
Belowdecks, headroom is emphasized. Two of the three cabins have en suite heads and the master features a full-beam layout with a king berth while the bow stateroom has an offset queen island.
