60ft Sedan Cruiser

This is the M260 which was introduced to the US market early in 2008. Built in Cape Town, South Africa she is the vision of M2 Motoryachts CEO Paul Mihailides who shepherded this interesting project through to reality. This design does a number of things very well. She achieves 40+ knots which is the high end for her class but does so with engines that are 25% smaller than her competition. As a result the fuel burn at 40 knots is 30% less than her deep V sisters. Then there is ride quality which I talk about endlessly but it means nothing till you experience it so call these guys up as they love to show it off. With the concept proven on the water we are now working to produce a few variants for M2 specifically an open boat and a sport fishing version. Both these boats have the option of using the larger V10 motors so will be getting up to 50 knots with ease. While offshore tournament boats have remained essentially unchanged for the last 40 years I think M2 is offering something that simply must be considered.
