In his profile of Mark Ellis (Professional BoatBuilder No. 138), Rob Mazza wrote that the 56′ (17m) is “The Zenith of Ellis’s Work in Powerboats,” and Bruckmann built her to perfection.

Cotytto is a spectacular three-stateroom, flybridge motor yacht from famed designer Mark Ellis, and custom builder Mark Bruckmann. She is a serious machine, with a deep V hull configuration and high bow. She has strong CAT diesel engines that provide fast all-weather performance and range, along with systems that are typically found in a much larger yacht. She is sea-kindly, agile at all speeds, quiet and perfect for her intended purpose of coastal cruising with a crew of four adults.
