Exterior styling of the M65 keeps in line with the classic, graceful aesthetics of its M-Series counterparts. The expansive flush deck and small pop-up deckhouse create a timeless and clean exterior, while still maintaining generous headroom below decks.
Sailing functionality on deck is kept as simple and user-friendly as possible, with powered winches and controls throughout, including captive main halyard winch and main sheet hydraulic trimming ram. The 90% self-tacking jib reduces required sail-handling, maximizing comfort and enjoyment at all points of sail. Hardware for flying an asymmetrical spinnaker is also standard, providing the owner with added versatility and fun. Most sailing functions can be operated from within the cockpit and from the full-function navigation helm station, reducing the need for crew to venture onto the foredeck in heavy weather. The spacious cockpit accommodates an entire family for an outdoor meal, or friends for an evening cocktail.
Below deck, the M65 provides two different layouts –three or four cabins. Both layouts provide double queen aft guest cabins, with a shared head and shower on port. The generous U-shaped galley has ample space for preparing large meals and food storage for longer voyages. Plenty of counter space and a large galley sink make food preparation, while still interacting with other guests, a delightful task. A large dining settee accommodates all guests comfortably for a meal and can be expanded to include the port settee, expanding dining capacity even further. A small navigation station at the aft end of the port settee provides adequate space for navigation equipment and charts, without compromising valuable living space below.
Forward of the main salon, the three and four cabin layouts provide owner’s with two excellent alternatives. The three cabin arrangement has an ample owner’s stateroom forward, with large closet spaces providing storage for clothing, linens, sailing gear, etc. The owner’s head is a spacious and comfortable space, with a large separate shower and additional linen storage. In the four cabin layout, some storage space is compromised by the addition of a comfortable children’s cabin, with double bunks and storage locker. The shared head forward still boasts a separate shower, and the owner’s cabin maintains the spacious king size berth and hanging lockers.
From a performance and engineering standpoint, the M65 has been designed to incorporate the latest technology in construction and systems. Built in infused FRP with a Corecell foam core, the M65 provides a reliable and seaworthy hull and structural grid. A state-of-the-art carbon fiber mast provides a lightweight rig, and improves overall stability by drastically reducing weight aloft. Full hotel services below, with generator and air conditioning maximize comfort for those aboard, while the expansive hydraulic system provides rugged power to all sailing and anchor handling equipment, as well as the retractable bow thruster.
