50 MK II

A more powerful and lengthened version of the acclaimed Bruckmann 50 pilothouse cruising sloop, the new Bruckmann 50 MK II features an integral stern platform extending the hull length, combined with the added power of the optional 200 HP John Deere engine. An easy 10 knot cruising speed was achieved during sea trials at an impressively low fuel consumption of under 5 GPH. The hull extension adds convenient stowage for an inflatable dinghy or scuba gear and provides a broad platform for boarding and swimming access.

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.

At Bruckmann, each yacht can be tailored to the specific requirements of her owner, offering a truly personalized expression of their tastes and experiences. Built in Canada, just outside of Toronto, we offer our clientele the opportunity to be involved in any or all stages of construction, from hull lay-up to launch.

Walking into the Bruckmann 50 from the stern, one is immediately struck by the size of the cockpit and the visibility in the main salon. No more descending steep stairs into a dark cavernous interior. The main salon is bright and open, providing excellent ventilation and panoramic visibility. The inside steering station is surrounded by the best in today's navigational equipment and engine instrumentation, including an ample chart table. Steering from the inside station during adverse conditions is a delight. The spacious cockpit and main salon dining areas offer expansive entertaining possibilities, with dinner party seating for four at each table.

The library/den is a truly unique feature. This versatile area can be equipped with a writing/computer desk, television, bar, or even a built in fireplace. A love seat can also serve as a comfortable pull out bunk, creating a third stateroom when additional guests arrive.

Modern appliances, such as a built-in microwave and top/front access refrigeration, accentuate the open layout of the galley. The solid surface countertops offer ample work surface, and due to the raised salon, the galley remains well lit under almost all conditions.The interior of the Bruckmann 50, as with all Bruckmann yachts, showcases the Company's exceptional quality and attention to detail.

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.

The Bruckmann 50 has advantages under power superior to a similar sized trawler, yet can sail better than many cruising sailboats. Reaching in approximately 18 knots of breeze, you will be rewarded with speeds approaching 10 knots. The occasional use of both sail and power deliver speed, comfort, and a degree of economics previously unrealized.
