Maestral 5

can any one help with any details of this inflatable, bought it for my daughter and it only has a 2hp outboard and could do with something bigger, but no plate to advise max capacity. I can find loads of details of the 9 or 9SD model which appear to be 30cm longer and can take a 10hp but nothing on the 5
If anyone can help much appreciated

The maestral 5 can take 5hp with slated floor,and 6hp if solid wooden floor.
I have the maestral 6, got it for my daughter to play with back in 1991.
the maestral 6 is rated for 6hp.
length about 9ft 6ins.

maestral were fantastic little boats and this one still keeps going with hardly any air loss.

with a 4hp mercury 2 stroke it will do about 15mph with one person at sea.
We have used it for picking up the dropped ski's when peole are learning to mono etc.

Here is pics of our maestral 6 back in 1990 on its maiden voyage at itchenor harbour.
Our daughters had tons of fun with it, at first with a seagull,then the 4hp the next season.

I have had avon campari dunlop and zodiac and this maestral and can honstly say its
been as good as the best and a lot better than the crappy made campari.
