Maritimo’s M59 is, in continuation of their brand, a convertible with an enclosed flying bridge. Maritimo’s mission for the M59 is luxurious comfort in a powerful and athletic structure that can be used for long range cruising, casual fishing and entertaining most anywhere in the world. The M59 features a new, wider beam that creates more space, with a design that seeks balance and optimized proportions.
- • Fully-Enclosed Flybridge. With the main deck salon designed with a galley and social space only, the helm on the M59 is on its fully-enclosed flybridge, which we would call a “sky lounge” because it becomes a second salon.
- • Flybridge Sun Deck. The aft deck on the flying bridge is long, drawn all the way back to the transom, making it a large sunning and spectating venue.
- • Full-Beam Master Cabin. The M59’s accommodations are a key element of her design, and the full-beam master cabin is a central piece of that layout. With the bed on the diagonal, a sofa to starboard, and a desk/vanity to port and the head pushed far forward, it is a clever and spacious layout.
- • Optional Flybridge Fold-out Berth. The creative use of space on the M59 includes the optional fold-out berth in the fully enclosed flybridge, bringing the number of guests it can sleep to eight.
- • Large Aft Storage Lazarette. Perfect for a small tender, water toys, or anything that needs to be stashed and secured, the M59 has a large, nearly full-beam storage space just off the aft swim platform.
- • Transom BBQ and Freezer. By using the swim platform as a deck, Maritimo has added utility to stern by using space that would otherwise go to waste for entertaining.
The aft swim platform on the M59 can be optionally outfitted with teak decking. Access to the cockpit comes via small steps both to port and starboard. In the middle of the transom is a hatch to the boat’s large lazarette. It is flanked on either side by a Waeco plate freezer, a grill and a sink.
Fender and rope lockers sit to port and starboard as one moves from the swim platform to the cockpit. The aft end of the cockpit space has a seating area with teak-inlaid table with stainless steel pedestals.
To the port side is a remote helm station with throttle control and digital readout on the bulkhead just above.
Teak decking in the cockpit comes standard, and includes a hatch in the deck that leads to the engine room and storage lazarette.
Access to the flybridge comes via a staircase in the main deck salon, to port. The steps have a glazed-wood finish, with a “floating steps” design accompanied by a stainless steel guide rail.
Forward the staircase as one reaches the flybridge is a sofa seating section, facing aft on the portside. The M59’s helm is forward to starboard.
The main flybridge indoor space has further L-shaped sofa seating to starboard, wrapped around a cocktail table just in front of it. This table has a glossy wood finish and a retractable tray for serving space.
Entertainment Console. Opposite the seating and cocktail table, along the edge of the staircase footprint, is a wood storage cabinet with glossy finish -- this structure has three drawers and a cabinet for anything the flybridge may need. Abaft this storage cabinet is a small refreshment center with sink and Corian countertop, as well as an optional fridge just below the countertop.
The flybridge is fully enclosed, with sliding windows to port and starboard, an electric sunroof with shade slide and two 12,000 BTU air conditioning units -- all standard. The carpeted interior is standard, and can be switched out to teak decking in conjunction with the aft outdoor deck.
The helm comes with twin captain’s chairs, both upholstered in plush, high-quality material for maximum comfort with armrests on each.
The helm station is fully equipped with steering, engine controls, instrumentation, bow and stern thruster controls, trim tab controls, compass, and windlass control. Further controls rest on a panel along the starboard bulkhead, with throttle, thruster controls, and the yacht’s VHF radio all conveniently at the captain’s right hand.
The M59’s windscreen on the flybridge also comes with defogging vents, which is a very convenient feature for a fully enclosed space that will likely fog up and impact navigation in certain weather conditions.
Flybridge Aft Deck
Through a swinging glass door that opens out is the flybridge’s aft deck space. Though largely unadorned, it does feature a seating space that extends as part of the stainless steel guard rail lining the space. The seating hangs over or “floats” off the end of the deck for a fun and unblocked view of the surroundings.
Teak decking comes standard on the flybridge aft deck and features an overhang for shade.
Upon entry to the main deck’s indoor space, the access stairs to the flybridge is immediately to port, with a storage cabinet just underneath.
To starboard is the M59’s well-appointed galley. Amidships is a Corian-topped island, with storage below as well as a dishwasher and garbage disposal unit. Along the aft starboard bulkhead is a two-door Miele freezer/refrigerator with wood-finished paneling. A pull-out pantry sits in this structure as well.
Moving forward, the L-shaped counter space begins below the starboard side windows. A four-burner Miele cooktop sits above a Miele convection oven and below a range hood.
Generous countertop space extends across the beam, punctuated by a stainless steel faucet and sink above storage and cupboard, divided from the lounge space forward by a lip and glossy wood accent piece, creating a small service platform.
The main salon space on the M59 has two seating sections: A C-shaped settee wrapped around a cocktail table to starboard and an L-shaped space to port. The cocktail table on the starboard side can fold up or out depending on the party size.
The main salon has carpeting throughout, with tinted and reinforced windows surrounding, as well as recessed LED lighting overhead.
The main salon has two 12,000 BTU air conditioning units standard as well.
Access to the lower deck comes via the passageway in the forward end of the main deck salon, with four LED-lit, leather guiderail appointed steps down to the lower hallway. The lower hallway, like the entire lower deck, is fully carpeted, with glossy wood finishes and upholstered bulkheads.
Air conditioning comes standard and serves the entire lower deck.
To port, off the lower hallways, is access to the full-beam master cabin on the M59. The access door to the master head is just to the right of immediate entry, and to the left is a small landing with closet storage, mirror, and a desk space that can be used as a study or vanity (with lift-up mirror and storage).
Alongside the desk space are four carpeted steps down to the cabin itself, with a guiderail accompanying.
The master cabin is full-beam, with a large berth that features an inner sprung mattress and storage drawers below. The berth is framed on each side by small night tables for books and reading glasses, with an upholstered headboard flanked on each side by wood panels that have lights and temperature control instruments.
Facing the berth are storage options on either side of the access stairs, including drawers, closets and hanging closets.
Six large portlights feature on the port and starboard side -- three each -- and sit above a loveseat (to port) and a smaller single-person rest spot (to starboard). Reclining shades are in place for each.
Recessed LED lighting features in the upholstered overheads.
The master en-suite has a head with fully enclosed shower, vanity and mirrors, opaque overhead deck hatch with blockout screens, towel rails, and a Corian countertop with sink and stainless steel faucet.
Forward the lower hallway is access to the VIP cabin. Immediately to port upon entry is access to the VIP cabin’s en-suite.
The VIP cabin has an island berth with spring mattress and three drawers of storage below. To each side near the head of the berth are bedside ledges, along with temperature control panels in-reach from the berth.
There are two large, fixed portholes as well as two overhead deck latches with blockout screens. Lighting comes via LED lights overhead. Carpeting throughout the lower deck continues in the VIP cabin.
Storage comes via a full-height locker in polished timber as well as shelves and further storage lockers to port and starboard. A full-height mirror adorns a bulkhead as well.
The en-suite has a head with full-enclosed shower, Corian countertop with faucet and sink, opaque overhead deck hatch with blockout screens, mirror, and towel rods.
To starboard off the lower passageway is the guest cabin. The smallest accommodation space on the M59, it features two single berths that can slide together to create a double. LED lighting features overhead, as well as a deck hatch with blockout screen.
The guest cabin has a storage locker as well as a utility bench with a Miele washer/dryer unit and storage drawers below. As with the rest of the lower deck, the guest cabin is carpeted. The en-suite head in the VIP cabin also features common access via the lower hallway -- the guest cabin does not have its own head.
The M59 features wide, easy-to-navigate walkaround decks, with stainless steel guiderails lining the whole way.
Forward at the bow, amidst the deck hatches featured in the guest cabins below, is the M59’s windlass, made by Muir. It is 24 volts, heavy duty, and has foredeck and helm controls. The anchor is 66 lbs. (30 kg), stainless steel, and has its dedicated locker for stowage on the bow separate from the rode. The chain is CE compliant, Grade L and 196’ (59.74 m) long.
Standard power on the M59 comes via twin Volvo D11 engines. An upgrade to Volvo Penta D13s is available.
We have not yet tested the M59.

There are few boats on the market quite like the Maritimo M59. She is a motoryacht, but not the flush deck or raised pilothouse type we are used to seeing. Rather, she gets her inspiration from the large “convertible” type of motoryachts that have been around since the 1960s. Of course, the M59 is not a true convertible, because she is really designed only for cruising, not also for serious fishing. Her long upper deck overhang and her stern configuration pretty much negate all but casual, family-fun type of fishing. Nevertheless, she incorporates all of the design and construction elements that make convertibles the most comfortable and seaworthy motoryachts offshore.
Because her CG is low, she will not roll as much; because her super structure does not have as much windage as a flush deck motoryacht, she will be easier to handle in all sorts of situations; and because of her cruising-style aft deck and her enclosed sky lounge/helm station, she has as much entertaining and “living” room as any boat her length.
We particularly like the M59’s 17’11” (5.46 m) beam, which makes it possible to have such a large guest cabin and master stateroom, to say nothing about adding stability. She is built in Australia, where boating is not for the faint of heart and vessels must be able to handle large seas and demanding owners. That speaks volumes about this boat.
