Post 50 Convertible: The Ultimate In Long-range Cruising Comfort.

Original Owner!

Never Fished!

Professionally Maintained!

The Post 50 bristles with an elegant interior that easily competes with any motoryacht in accommodations and comfort. Rather than employ modular construction that is popular today with many yacht manufacturers, the Post 50 is stick-built, one piece at a time, one yacht at a time. It takes longer to build a yacht this way, but the resulting quality is evident.

Into its brawny hull that features a handlaid solid glass bottom, stringers and foamcored sides, the bulkheads and cabinetry are individually fitted, to guarantee a perfect fit that ensures integrity and strength for the life of the yacht. You can feel these attributes every time you open and close a drawer, hatch or door.

The salon makes good use of the Fifty’s 16’11” beam, creating a living room atmosphere with an L-shaped lounge that converts to a sleeper and an L-shaped settee with stowage below. The dinette is a gorgeous piece of varnished teak. Rounded edges on the furniture are seakindly, and the joinery has the satin finish. 

Powerful freshwater-cooled, turbo-charged diesels put the Post 50 on plane at 1200 rpm, an indication of her slippery and efficient running surface. Standard hydraulic steering provides excellent response. 

Hand-laid construction includes a solid keel, chines and bottom. Above the waterline, the 50's hull is Divinycell-cored, while vinylester resins are used in the first two hull layers to prevent blistering and osmosis. Isophthalic gel coat gives her a deep gloss finish that will stand up to the tough marine environment. 

The flying bridge is designed around a low profile, centerline helm that provides superb 360 degree visibility for spotting tailing billfish, backing down on a fish or into a tight slip. Navigation equipment fits neatly into flush installations. A generous panel located behind the forward lounge seat provides easy access to console wiring and mechanical equipment. 

The 50’s cockpit is the largest in its class, and features every amenity a tournament champion needs to fill the outriggers with release flags. The 11’6” long cockpit is fitted with durable non-slip, and anchors the biggest fighting chair with ease thanks to reinforced solid-mahogany laminated into the fiberglass sole. Built-in molded consoles provide more than adequate stowage for gear and tackle. A top loading freezer cabinet is located starboard. The extended bridge overhang shades the cockpit while providing safe and easy access to the helm.

Accessed through the cockpit, the 50’s engine room is another example of Post’s astute engineering. Gel coated for easy care, the entire work area is brightly illuminated with dual-voltage lighting. All machinery installations were designed for trouble-free service and easy maintenance–whether replacing a fuel filter or changing oil in the engines or 15kW generator.
