Maritime, a 2000 48 Bayliner is one of the most popular pilothouse motor yachts ever built.

Her popularity is evidenced by a very active owner's blog that can provide insight into everything from creative upgrades to emergency repair options. What sets Maritime apart from other 4788s is not just how well kept she is, but her unique fully enclosed custom sky lounge.
