Default Profil 50' Cherokee

What's the story on these boats. Look slike a big Magnum. Pretty damn cool with big old school detroit power.

I actually like the boat, for it's sheer size it has a great sport look on the water, and both the cockpit and salon are huge.
I guess a 12' beam on a 50' boat lends to a very open feeling.
I was shocked at the top speed posted. I'd of never guessed a boat that big and heavy would move that fast with diesels.
I wonder what it's GPH is at that cruising speed.

See ya,

I really like it! I think I've seen it at PIB before. Wonder if it comes with a trailer...

Only if you live in Texas where everything is bigger LOL!!!
I don't think the other states allow regular people to tow boats that wide down their roads without a wide load permit.

See ya,

The back slightly resembles the 80 nortech with the vents on the side. That'd be quite the trailer TR930

The 8v92's I had in construction equipment burned @ WOT about 90-110 gallons each in a 10 hour shift. They were pretty easy on fuel, but they were low HP & LOUD!!!

The 50' Cherokee was designed by Alberto Mercati and built by ProfilMarine Yachts in Orrigio, Italy. In a test report of '82 that model powered by twin 500hp Cummins Turbodiesels had a cruising speed of 30knots (top 35) and a range of 300 nm. I think this was by far the most popular model of that company. The later models (60' and 80') did not sell as well.

Looks nice. A little too good to be true. Call me a skeptic but it does say "fresh water boat" but I didn't know they had palm trees in Ohio.
