Maritimo touts itself as a builder of long-range boats. Drop your speed to displacement-hull levels, and at 10 knots you can travel 835 nm. And you can do even better - 2,674 nm when traveling at just more than 7 knots. Interestingly, no matter what your speed or rpm, the fuel burn remains remarkably steady at about 0.5 gallons per minute. During our test ride in a wind-against-tide sea state, seas hit eight to 12 feet and came at us in short intervals. Though we could only run about 15 knots, the boat felt perfectly secure. However, in situations like this where you constantly adjust the throttles to meet sea conditions, I discovered I really didn't care for the location of the throttle/shift and the thruster controls: Both were mounted low and to the right by the helmsman's knee. It made for an awkward control situation.
