Editor’s Cruising Pick:

The Maritimo M50 is a rugged cruiser designed for real boaters. We’d love to cruise her from Southern California down to Cabo San Lucas so we could test her mettle against the mighty Pacific—and maybe discover the perfect fish taco shack along the way. Like us on Facebook and let us know what adventure you’d like to take aboard the M50.
