The Marathon I (M.60) is an all‐metal, short/medium‐range aeroplane capable of carrying a maximum of 22 passengers or, by simple adaptation, freight and mixed cargo. Two flight crew (first pilot and second pilot/navigator) are carried; radio is installed immediately aft of the cockpit on the starboard side while directly opposite this location provision is made for a forward freight compartment or a seat for a third crew member. A toilet can be fitted on the left‐hand side of the passenger cabin just aft of the entrance door and a space at the rear on the‐right hand side can be utilized as a wardrobe.
