About the 20 Classic

The 20 Classic Proves that Good Things Come in Small Packages

The 20 Classic is a smaller Express-style model that shares the same easy-to-handle, incredibly efficient hull design as the 20 Defiant and 20 Pioneer, but offers a very different cockpit and berth configuration.

Similar to the larger 23’ model the 20 Classic has a welded aluminum white powder coated framed windshield with convenient outside handrails and an inside center grab rail for the driver or navigator. Large ventilation wing vents open on both sides of the windshield that allow fresh air to flow directly into the helm area; a nice feature on a hot summer day. Visibility from the helm is excellent whether you sit or stand, annoying windshield reflection common on some boats is reduced with Maritime’s standard non-glare dash.


Built for Comfort on the Water

The helmsman enjoys a sliding pedestal seat behind an oversized gauge pod that accommodates the latest electronics. On the port side, the companion enjoys the same comfortable seating, mounted to an easily accessed storage box, which doubles as a third bench seat. There is plenty of space behind the Captain’s helm seat to store gear, a cooler or a deck chair. Seat cushions come standard with durable grey vinyl fabric but can be upgraded to a variety of colors of Sunbrella brand fabric.

Below deck behind a lockable bi-fold door is a cuddy cabin with a comfortable four-piece cushion set. The large cuddy offers privacy when changing clothes or accessing a Porta Potti and provides convenient easy-to-access storage. With the removable center cushions inserted both big and little people alike can stretch out in the well ventilated cuddy for a comfortable nap.

Adding the optional bimini provides terrific sun protection while installation of the seven-piece weather curtain set, including bimini, front and side Strataglass windows, and three-piece zippered rear drop curtain, makes this boat ready for all types of weather.


Built for Strength & Safety

The 20 Classic is no different than all our models when it comes to safety and strength. Built with 100% composite materials using the latest manufacturing techniques we carefully construct each boat to withstand lots of loving use and abuse. Side decks are 8 1/2″ wide and the bow deck and cuddy have a good non-skid surface for better footing and anti-glare qualities. All the deck hardware on the Classic is heavy-duty 316 stainless steel with rugged 8” cleats bolted through the deck and the hull flange, resulting in an attachment system far superior to deck-only mounted hardware. The foam filled fiberglass grid and compartments beneath the non-skid floor not only make the boat “unsinkable” but also add stiffness and dampen hull noise.

A popular option on the 20 Classic is a heavy-duty stainless steel stern rail; it provides added security when standing in the cockpit and is a great place for rail-mount rod holders. There are also a variety of bow rails, side rails and quarter rails that can be added to configure your Classic to meet your needs.

An aggressive non-skid deck pattern combined with a self bailing cockpit makes the boat easy to clean and maintain. There is a choice for an all white interior cockpit or the traditional Maritime solid grey interior, both which utilize the highest quality gel coats for maximum durability and wear resistance.


Like all Maritimes, Built for Fuel Efficiency

The 20 Classic is most efficient with a 90 or 115 HP motor. Running at a cruise speed of 20-25 MPH the boat will achieve greater than 5.0 MPG while burning less than 4.5 GPH. All Maritimes have ethanol friendly polyethylene fuel tanks, range of a 20 Classic’s 29 gallon tank is in excess of 150 miles. With a maximum 150 horsepower motor the 20 Classic will reach speeds between 40-45 MPH.
