LOVESEATOO50' Bruckmann 50 MKII 2006

$ 575,000

Among the new generation of motorsailors, the Bruckmann 50 rides at the top of the class: 100 percent sailboat, 100 percent motorboat – an exceptional achievement of imagination, engineering, and craftsmanship. ~ Bruckmann Yachts


Loveseatoo is the queen of the fleet of the Bruckmann 50’s. She was built under the direction of her architect/owner and has been continuously owned by one owner since. She has been stored inside during the winter and maintained by two of the best yards since her launch: Falmouth Marine, Falmouth, Mass and Great Island Boat Yard, Harpswell, Maine.

Bruckmann 50 MKII

   "The Bruckmann 50, designed by Mark Ellis, has been highly praised for its sailing ability and handsome appearance as well as for its functional and expansive accommodations. It has proven to be, first and foremost, a swift and balanced bluewater sailer with the added advantages of excellent speed under power and amenities far beyond those found on most sailing cruisers. Cruising comfort aboard the Bruckmann 50 is greatly enhanced by a large pilothouse which encloses an airy salon and protects a second helm station from the elements." ~ Bruckmann Yachts

   "The Bruckmann 50 shows handsome lines and great performance under both sail and power, intrinsic qualities that will assure this yacht's appeal for a very long time to come. The hull shape of the Bruckmann 50 features a long waterline with a balanced distribution of underwater volume. This, coupled with a long flat run aft enables the yacht to enjoy high speeds under both sail and power." ~ Bruckmann Yachts
