It's an easy trade-off to make, however, because the Maestro's high, flared freeboard forward and narrow stem make for an exceedingly dry, smooth ride even in rough conditions. Standard power is twin 1,100-horsepower MAN V-10 diesels that take the boat up to 30 knots. The engine-room headroom is more than six feet, and systems that regularly need inspections, such as fuel filters and sea strainers, are all plainly visible on the forward bulkhead. The boat we tested had the optional 1,360-horsepower MAN V-12 diesels, and on a nice day off Miami we registered 33.8 knots using trim tabs, a good-looking speed that reinforced Broich's objection to the word trawler to describe the boat. "This boat isn't meant to be a trawler," he insists. "It's meant to be a fast boat, to get you to certain places." Standard fuel capacity is 1,585 gallons in three tanks, two just forward of the engine room and one underneath. (There's an option for two additional 264-gallon tanks farther aft.) The top 34-knot speed gives the Maestro a range of 470 miles with the standard fuel capacity; if it runs at 30 knots (2,100 rpm), the range is about 540 miles. It's significant that despite all the additional weight on the American model (lengthened bridge deck, marble countertops in the bathrooms, 400 feet of anchor chain forward — that's standard, by the way — and other heavy items), the yacht we tested went only about a knot slower than the lighter European version.
