The 50 Mediterranee is an Italian cruiser with all the comforts and amenities you would expect on a 60 + foot yacht. The design of this Italian vessel is a breath of fresh air. Most state side built boats in the same range I find bulky or outdated. And most look the same and don’t have a character that is all their own. Not only does the Mediterranean’ 50 have sleek sexy lines and eye catching performance; it also delivers everything you could possibly need in an extended range cruiser. There are so many thoughtful and innovative features onboard.
This boat is so well laid out that it is perfect for a large family that wants a comfortable and fast cruiser to take them out to their favorite destinations and back over the course of the weekend. With her three staterooms and two-head setup you can do just that… and do it in style. One of the major contributing factors to the fast ride and extremely generous range are the twin 480-hp Volvo Penta TAMD 74P EDC engines. These are placed well forward and very low and together in the boat, leading to excellent performance and stability. There’s great access to the engines from two openings in the cockpit sole. Amazed with all the space aft of the engines where the steering hook-up and generator are located. There is also great access to the rudderposts and steering cables through the opening in the floor of the garage deck all the way aft. This provides great ventilation and comfort when working below. The use of sound deadening materials is evident in the quiet ride experienced when at speeds. Measured is a steady 77 on the dBa meter for most of the range and got the highest reading of 83 at full throttle. The other contributing factor to the smooth ride and great performance is the well-designed hull. The hull of the Mediterranee’ 50 sports a deep-V in the bow with hard chines that cut down on spray. Further aft there are flat sections that help to stabilize the ride while the propellers are also housed in Prop pockets. All of this factors in for a uniquely smooth and stabile vessel that can take plenty of seas while still providing you with the best that luxury has to offer.
The layout on deck is open and practical. A simplistic nature of European design and this boat speaks style and functionality. Back aft we find a large swim platform that makes getting onboard from the dock or tender easy. The boat also features a hydraulic passerelle, which features one button operation and is lighted for nighttime use. And when it comes to docking the Mediterranee’ 50 convenient features such as stern winches and a unique helm design allow the driver to quickly tend to lines when docking. This boat might be large but with all of the great features it’s a breeze to handle with two people. Located further aft is the garage where you can store a large inflatable or jet boat. It features convenient rollers and an electric winch to help retrieve the boat built into the bulkhead. The top of the garage also pulls double duty as a large sun pad for lounging.
To port in the cockpit is a wet bar and electric grill. There is also a fridge and storage rack located just underneath the wet bar.
Seating and Helm
Over to starboard is a C-shaped seating arrangement and table, which comfortably seat six or seven adults. Forward of this area is the helm which is set up to accommodate four people. This is great for keeping everyone together and in the action while underway. To port there is a seat, which accommodates two. You will also find cup holders and plenty of dashboard storage. Over to starboard the two helm chairs are comfortable and are electronically controlled for the best possible line of site. They also feature a flip up bolster to make it comfortable when standing. Another great feature is the step that is located behind these two seats that when separated provides a quick way to get out on the side decks to tend lines when docking. The helm is well designed with good space for mounting additional gear. The Volvo controls are smooth, and the custom wood and leather Nardi steering wheel add a nice touch. The walkway up to the bow is wide and makes for easy passage. The railings are large stainless steel and provide great support. Also, the windshield features a wide large cap on top, which acts as a railing when moving forward. Up here there’s another large sun pad and wide open deck. You will also find a large anchor locker, windlass, fender storage and heavy-duty hardware throughout.
An aluminum sliding door provides the entrance to the cabin. Once below beautifully crafted American cherry cabinets and wall panels surround you. The door handles are covered in leather and the layout for the three staterooms and two heads creates a wide-open feel. As you enter the cabin you will find the two staterooms to port and starboard, one with two twins and the other with a full. Each provides plenty of storage and have large hanging lockers. Attached to the cabin and the port stateroom is the day-head which features an electric toilet and loads of cabinet space. One of the neat little features is the showerhead, which is built into the ceiling providing great coverage.
The galley is just to starboard and features loads of storage, Corian countertops and provides access to the ship’s electrical panel. Over to port is a U-shaped settee, which will seat five to six for meals, with the additional bench stools that are provided.
Just forward is the master stateroom with a double queen-sized bed and private head with shower. The cabin features beautiful woodwork around the berth and the cabin walls. There are two large hanging lockers with shelves, two portholes for fresh air, and a stereo with CD player for relaxation.
Performance and Handling
The Volvo engines provided smooth acceleration and excellent performance. This is truly a great weekend cruiser for the family. It can also be a great-extended cruiser for smaller couples, and affords plenty of storage for all of your gear and toys. The hull provided a solid ride and with the unique hull design you’re sure to feel safe and secure when traveling in seas. While the cruiser market here in the states is a little old fashioned, the unconventional lines and traditional quality Italian craftsmanship is a welcome import that is sure to find its way into your family.
