LUXURY MOTOR YACHT manufacturer Maritimo’s specialist custom division, Maritimo One, has produced yet another vessel specifically designed for a New Zealand game fishing enthusiast.

The S51 sedan motor yacht is the first of the offshore cruising single-level entertainers to be fitted with a game tower as well as specific custom modifications to the cockpit, set up for sport fishing.

“Maritimo One is experiencing an increase in demand from customers who have very specific ideas of what they want in their vessels, particularly from the sport fishing sector,” said Maritimo’s general manager operations, Phil Candler.

“Since the Maritimo One division launch last year we have produced a number of boats with specialised fish modifications, including a 72-foot enclosed flybridge to New Zealand, which has triggered a wave of enquiries from the region.”

An M59 model, also with game tower and modifications to cockpit and transom, is underway at the Maritimo One customisation division.

Common custom inclusions in specific fish boat setups to date include fully enclosed fish cockpit modifications with transom doors, reversing transoms, game chairs, game towers, live bait tanks, tuna tubes, outriggers, aft flybridge helms, and more.


“The owner of the latest Maritimo One S51 is a serious fishing fanatic and he knew exactly how he wanted to set up his new boat, which is the third Maritimo he has owned,” said Candler.
