Maritimo launches largest sedan cruiser
Catch the first S70 on display at Sydney before it heads to New Zealand.
Local luxury boat builder Maritimo has unveiled its latest S70 sedan cruiser at the Sydney International Boat Show this morning, the latest addition to its S series and the largest vessel to be launched by the company at the Sydney show.
The first S70 to be completed has been delivered to a New Zealand buyer who has already used it to cruise the Bundaberg region before the boat travelled from the Gold Coast to Sydney for its show debut. It will then return to the Gold Coast for further additions before heading to New Zealand and cruising the South Pacific.
The S70 is designed to offer the benefits of single-level cruising and socialising. It has a top speed of nearly 30 knots and is powered by Scania D16 -1150HP motors. It has a range of 520 nautical miles at 21 knots and on the trip from Queensland to Sydney, averaged 24 knots with a fuel consumption of 12 litres per nautical mile.
International sales and marketing manager, Greg Haines, said the four cabin, three bathroom vessel offers plentiful entertaining and living space and, being single level, provides additional height in the main cabin with almost two metres of headroom. The first vessel has been highly customised by its owner and features satin dark teak timbers throughout.
“The galley is something to be seen with the timbers selected and it features Miele appliances," he said. “The vessel has a painted hull in a champagne gold colour and it also has a Seakeeper gyro and ZF joystick with I- Anchor technology.
"It features an extra-large sunroof and has a hydraulic swim platform for tender storage.
"We think this vessel will have broad appeal not only to Australian buyers, but particularly in Europe."
Maritimo also used the Sydney show to release details of its latest project, the X60 sports yacht, billed as "a unique design and exciting addition” to the Maritimo line-up and the company’s largest design and R&D project.
A unique feature of the shaft-driven vessel is the option for a full-beam aft cabin with en suite as an alternative to a tender garage. According to Maritimo, the aft cabin option has proven to be popular with the majority of pre-sales. The model is set to break company records for pre-sales with the first build due in February 2018 prior to its release at SCIBS next year.
"From its advanced hull lines and performance to the floor plan design with incorporation of aft cabin and versatile entertainment capabilities, the X60 will revolutionise the sport yacht concept,” said Maritimo designer, Tom Barry-Cotter.
