This 2008 48' Maritimo “C Spirit”, is an exceptionally seaworthy long range motor yacht with features usually found on much larger vessels. The 48 Maritimo is CE Category A rated. Maritimos are built by Bill Barry-Cotter, Australia's most awarded boat builder. Maritimo is unique in the world of yachting for its common sense approach to design and construction. The result is a craft that is ideal for the cruising lifestyle. Like every Maritimo, the 48 is incredibly frugal on fuel without compromising performance. Her hull shape and engines forward design with the fuel tank forward on the center of buoyancy results in very low shaft angles and excellent trim for fuel efficiency and a smooth ride in rough seas. The large fuel tank and efficient performance provide unmatched speed and range for a vessel of this type. Water tight bulkheads provide an extra level of safety at sea. The entire boat and all her systems are simple and robust for dependable, comfortable, long range performance and cruising.

The original owner purchased this boat new with with a number of custom items including a polished myrtle wood finish interior, upgraded Ultraleather fabrics, custom Silhouette window blinds, stern thruster and hydraulic dinghy platform. 

The current owner replaced the teak decks with plasTEAK, for easier care and greater durability.

The carpet throughout the cabin has been replaced as well as a few other updates, as noted in the detailed specs. The engine coolers and exhausts were serviced in the summer of 2019 and all mechanical service is up to date. This Maritimo has received exceptional care from her two owners and is ready to go. Check out the video.

Side walkways port and starboard, with high bulwarks and stainless railing, gives secure access to the fore deck and bow areas.

One of the most desirable things you get on a Maritimo 48' are the deep wide walk arounds and easy on the feet non-skid foredeck. These decks make this boat very safe for crew, family, guests, and pets to move around the boat with great ease and safety. The large lower and upper aft decks are great places for setting up deck chairs and kicking back. The teak decking has been replaced with plasTEAK. This yacht is rigged with two stainless steel anchors for safe and secure mooring in the islands. Forward on the starboard side there is door to the side deck from the salon. The bottom was painted November, 2016.

Electrical System

The AC and DC panels and all battery switches are conveniently located just inside the salon sliding doors on the port side at the base of the internal stairs to the enclosed bridge. The DC ships service is 24 volts. There are two 110v circuits powered by the 220v 50 Amp shore cord on a Glendenning cord reel or the 21.5 KW Onan Generator. The inverter and dedicated batteries provide 110v AC power to engine room lights and outlets in each head and the galley.

Engine Room

The engine room is exceptional. There is excellent access all the way around both engines. It is clean, well lit, and roomy with convenient entry through the cockpit hatch. The fiber glass pan and engine beds provide a finely finished gel coat surface. Foam with vinyl covering insulates for quiet operation and a finished look in the engine room. Filtered air intakes through the cabin house rather than the hull sides dramatically reduce salt air in the engine room and results in reduced corrosion of all metal parts throughout the engine room. The single 945 gallon fiberglass fuel tank forms a structural water tight bulkhead forward in the engine room. Located on the center of buoyancy, the fuel level does not affect the trim of the vessel. A sight tube shows the exact fuel level. There is plenty of room outboard of the engines where molded boxes with hinged lids house all the batteries for the 24v DC engine, house, and inverter systems.
