Public Debut of Maritimo Mega Cruiser

by May 7, 2015

A true head-turner right down to the finest detail—step aboard and you will be immediately captivated by its space, easily accommodating your family in style, safety and comfort for some genuine blue water passage making.

The MaritimoM65 will have its public debut at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat in May 2015. This boat is the very latest in a variety of luxury vessels that have been designed and manufactured right here on the Gold Coast to supply orders from around Australia.

“This is a serious motor yacht, and the interest we have had in this new model has been tremendous,” according to Maritimo Sales and Marketing manager, Greg Haines. “The five we sold are going to Adelaide, Sydney, the Gold Coast and Brisbane owners, and we feel confident that since prospective buyers can actually see the finished product, there will be a wave of further sales.”

Mr Haines said the power options ranged from twin 900-horsepower Volvo motors to four 725-horsepower Volvo motors, and various options in between. It is the only boat in the Maritimo range that can be powered by four engines. He stated that engine options for the five boats they sold included CAT, Scania and MAN diesels.

“The vessels we have started building will be set up primarily for both cruising and fishing pursuits, and all have been ordered with SeaKeeper gyro stabilizers, a motion control device designed to achieve roll reduction on the boat. The base price for these boats is $2.865 million, and then they are optioned up from there.”

The M65 motor yacht has four main cabins including a full beam master and full beam ensuite. Catering is a breeze with a massive galley with the option of side-by-side domestic sized refrigerators. Miele appliances are standard. Room to relax and kick back is no problem with the saloon lounge being three metres long.

“The flybridge on this vessel is really like the second storey of an apartment. It is massive, and can be used for additional sleeping quarters or entertaining, or even a separate area for teenage children to have their own space.”

Mr Haines said, “With Maritimo’s super efficient shaft drive and hull design technology, the company is able to deliver even better fuel consumption figures than its competitors using pod-drives across the full range of Maritimo model. We estimate that with fuel capacity of 6,300 litres, this boat will have a range of 450 nautical miles at a speed of 21-22 knots.”

Mr Haines encourages big boat enthusiasts to visit Sanctuary Cove International Boatshow, and step aboard the M65 to experience first-hand the well-thought-out design and exceptional quality of this motor yacht.

The Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show runs from 21 to 24 May 2015.
