  • Sleek New Side-Cabin Window Design

The flagship of the Mikelson fleet, the custom-built, Tom Fexas designed Mikelson 50 Luxury SF – Generation II is the ultimate family / fish / cruiser:

  • Massive Salon with 360-Degree Windows and 6’ 6” Headroom
  • (2) or (3) Stateroom Layout

  • Enormous Flybridge with Forward and Aft Tournament Stations

Her massive beam (16’ 08”) and a low center-of-gravity make the Mikelson 50 one of the most stable platforms on the water.

Standard twin 600hp QSC Cummins “Common Rail” diesels provide the power to get to the fishing grounds while her Fexas designed semi-displacement hull gives her the economy of a long-range trawler.

GlenDinning ProPilot Joystick

Joystick Control System

The ProPilot is an optional accessory that can be added to most existing and any new Glendinning control systems on boats with inboard propulsion and bow / stern thrusters.

The ProPilot system is suitable for installation on all inboard power boats with bow thrusters (or bow and stern thrusters), and sailboats with both bow and stern thrusters fitted. An integrated thruster control keypad provides the capability to control the thrusters directly without the need for a separate thruster panel.
