Post 50 Convertible: The Ultimate In Long-range Cruising Comfort.
The Post 50 bristles with an elegant interior that easily competes with any motoryacht in accommodations and comfort. Rather than employ modular construction that is popular today with many yacht manufacturers, the Post 50 is stick-built, one piece at a time, one yacht at a time. It takes longer to build a yacht this way, but the resulting quality is evident.
Into its brawny hull that features a handlaid solid glass bottom, stringers and foamcored sides, the bulkheads and cabinetry are individually fitted, to guarantee a perfect fit that ensures integrity and strength for the life of the yacht. You can feel these attributes every time you open and close a drawer, hatch or door.
The salon makes good use of the Fifty’s 16’11” beam, creating a living room atmosphere with an L-shaped lounge that converts to a sleeper and an L-shaped settee with stowage below. The dinette is a gorgeous piece of varnished teak. Rounded edges on the furniture are seakindly, and the joinery has the satin finish.
Powerful freshwater-cooled, turbo-charged diesels put the Post 50 on plane at 1200 rpm, an indication of her slippery and efficient running surface. Standard hydraulic steering provides excellent response.
Hand-laid construction includes a solid keel, chines and bottom. Above the waterline, the 50's hull is Divinycell-cored, while vinylester resins are used in the first two hull layers to prevent blistering and osmosis. Isophthalic gel coat gives her a deep gloss finish that will stand up to the tough marine environment.
The flying bridge is designed around a low profile, centerline helm that provides superb 360 degree visibility for spotting tailing billfish, backing down on a fish or into a tight slip. Navigation equipment fits neatly into flush installations. A generous panel located behind the forward lounge seat provides easy access to console wiring and mechanical equipment.
The 50’s cockpit is the largest in its class, and features every amenity a tournament champion needs to fill the outriggers with release flags. The 11’6” long cockpit is fitted with durable non-slip, and anchors the biggest fighting chair with ease thanks to reinforced solid-mahogany laminated into the fiberglass sole. Built-in molded consoles provide more than adequate stowage for gear and tackle. A top loading freezer cabinet is located starboard. The extended bridge overhang shades the cockpit while providing safe and easy access to the helm.
Accessed through the cockpit, the 50’s engine room is another example of Post’s astute engineering. Gel coated for easy care, the entire work area is brightly illuminated with dual-voltage lighting. All machinery installations were designed for trouble-free service and easy maintenance–whether replacing a fuel filter or changing oil in the engines or 15kW generator.

Post Marine's Post 50s, and the crews that fish them, have been a factor on the tournament circuit since the yacht's introduction in 1986. With the continuing input of these seasoned anglers, both the 50's performance and functionality have been substantially enhanced over the years. This 50 offers a well thought-out cockpit. The fiberglass sole is reinforced to accommodate the largest fighting chairs, while the non-slip finish provides safe footing. To keep the cockpit clear, molded fiberglass stowage cabinets offer plenty of space for tackle and gear. In addition, there's a full rigging station with sink, a top loading refrigerator and freezer, and a walk-through transom door with gate and gel coated fish wells. From the cockpit, walk-in engine room access affords quick response to any situations that may require attention while underway. The completely gel-coated engine room has more than enough light and space to easily reach and maintain all vital engine parts. The 50's expanded bridge features wrap-around lounge seating forward and to port with rod storage below. Additional scuppered storage areas are found forward and beneath the console that has been designed to accommodate a full array of flush mounted electronics. Full instrumentation - including a monitoring system for bilge blowers, lights and pumps, Halon system and generator - is standard. Excellent 360 visibility from the helm makes monitoring cockpit action easy. The 50's luxurious salon features all of the amenities one would expect to find aboard a world class yacht including: a complete entertainment center with remote 26-inch color TV, AM-FM stereo and CD player, a comfortable L-shaped dinette with storage below, and an L-shaped lounge with sleeper hideaway, all surrounded by an abundance of richly finished cabinetry and smart designer fabrics. Standard galley features include a Corian counter top, two-burner electric range, microwave - convection oven, full-size refrigerator - freezer, and an abundance of drawer storage.The portside guest stateroom features comfortable over and under bunks with generous drawer storage below and a large screened hatch overhead. The guest head, with its private entrance, includes an enclosed stall shower, molded vanity with more than ample storage above and below for towels and personal items. A soft-riding hull with sharp bow entry and increased deadrise throughout, provides maximum stability and efficiency for a more comfortable ride to and from the fishing grounds. The 50's solid glass hull, with its Vinylester resin barrier, is cored with Divinycell above the waterline. Post hulls have been long known for their fish-raising ability; these hulls have fiberglass encapsulated wooden engine beds - an important factor in deadening engine noise and vibration without sacrificing structural integrity. The exacting fit and finish of the bulkheads, stringers, and deck joints ultimately determine the long-term integrity of each and every Post Yacht.
Plan A places the master suite forward with a queen-size island berth and private head and shower. The amidship cabin features side by side berths with private access to the second head. The port stateroom has upper and lower berths, and the heads are finished with oversized vanities, molded countertops, sinks and stall showers.
Fixed cabinetry houses a deluxe entertainment package featuring a standard 26” TV, AM/FM stereo and CD player that delivers beautiful sound. Halogen fixtures in the overhead bathes the salon in soft lighting. Truly a royal room, the salon is both inviting and pure luxury.
Recessed cooktop is not only convenient, but made doubly practical with a removable cover that hides the appliance when not in use for an uninterrupted flow of Corian. The full-size refrigerator/freezer comes with a builtin ice cube maker. Indirect lighting casts a soft glow across the bookend matched joinery.
The queen-size berth is accessible from three sides and features stowage below. The hanging wardrobe locker is lined with cedar and illuminates upon opening. Hull side cabinets and shelving, bullnose moldings and plush fabrics create an inviting atmosphere. There is private access to the head and overhead deck hatch with screen and shade.
Accessed through the owner's stateroom, the master head offers the privacy and comfort you would expect to find aboard a quality yacht, including a fully enclosed stall shower, oversized vanity, medicine cabinet with mirror, AC with reverse cycle heat and opening overhead hatch.
The starboard side guest stateroom features side-by-side berth, credenza, hanging locker, and private access to the guest/day head.
Guest head has a fiberglass stall shower and seat. Molded countertops make clean-up a breeze. The overhead deck hatch with screen and shade is a thoughful feature.
The portside guest stateroom features comfortable over and under bunks with generous drawer storage below and a large screened hatch overhead.
The Post 50 cuts a beautiful form as she moves across the water. Her sharp entry smoothes into head seas, while her moderate deadrise aft gives her speed and poise in all sea conditions. Her generous flare forward and full after sections make her dry and a delight to run, cruise or fish.
