About the 1890

The cornerstone of Maritime’s line of dry, stable seaworthy boats, the 1890 delivers unparalleled versatility, performance and fuel efficiency, making it the most popular Maritime boat model since it was introduced in 1992. The 1890 comes standard with a large bow casting platform that provides abundant lockable storage, a 32” wide console with rail, windshield and front seat and a leaning post that can be outfitted with a backrest, footrest or tackle station. The large interior and abundant deck space provides room for coolers, gear and extra seating options.

Rugged 100% Composite Construction with a Solid Fiberglass Grid System

Using the most modern construction techniques available along with the highest quality materials and gel coats, the 1890 has become even better over the years. The boat features 100% composite construction with a solid fiberglass grid system, ethanol friendly polyethylene fuel tanks, a foam filled floor that creates “unsinkability” and a vacuum infused non-skid deck that can handle use and loving abuse. The heavy duty 316 stainless steel hardware, rugged fiberglass components and the attention to detail given when items are installed distinguish Maritime boats from others who only “talk the talk”.

With a 90” wide beam, rounded bow, external keel and hard chins people are simply amazed how well this 18 footer performs in all types of conditions providing a solid, responsive and comfortable ride even in the nastiest conditions. The ride of the 1890 is surprisingly dry even in rough conditions due to the rounded bow and accent lines that efficiently push the water aside. Our dealers chuckle when people show up for demo rides wearing foul weather gear necessary for some brands, but not a Maritime.

Fuel Efficiency – The Plan from Day One

Not only does Maritime’s unique hull provide an impressive ride, but it was designed from day one to be fuel efficient. The 1890 will plane at 12 mph and performs well with moderate horsepower achieving greater than 6.5 mpg at a cruise speed of 20-26 mph and burning less than 3.5 gph. The 1890 gives you big boat performance with small boat fuel efficiency.

Consider 1890 Options

This 1890 features a variety of options, the bow dodger is a perfect shelter for younger children and gear, the flush mount rod holders in the back of the leaning post will accommodate a removable upholstered backrest and side rails are just some of the many rail options available.
