SURPRISE is a rare offering on the used market. The Bruckmann 50 is a no compromise motorsailer offering speeds of 9-10 knots under power or sail.
The balanced hull form offers a stable comfortable ride regardless of weather conditions. The large engine room rivals powerboats with access from the steps to the salon or through the salon cabin sole.
