It is going to be a very big year for Maritimo in 2017. Expect to see bigger, more specialised and flexible boats for discerning owners as well as a swag of new models..
Bigger motor yachts, more sports sedans, a new X Series, and a top-secret ‘picnic boat’ from Maritimo in 2017.
Maritimo will introduce six new models in 2017, bringing the range to six motoryachts. Set to be launched at the Sanctuary Boat Show in May 2017, is the M59, the S59 and S70 Sedan variants.
Based on the M50, the best seller in the motoryacht series, the M54 has interior tweaks and finishing upgrades and an extended Fish Boat Transom option and lengthened cockpit that creates a pile more outdoor room.
The M59 and S59 will have the base 725hp Volvo Penta D11 engine, though most are being upgraded to the 800hp variant.
A new S64 is also scheduled for release later in 2017, but it’s the new S70 that will be drawing the most attention. The flagship of the Sedan range introduces new modernised styling and vastly improved lines, at least if the drawings are anything to go by. The first boat will head to a Kiwi client.
Joining the 2017 line-up of 12 Maritimo models will be the first new boat from the X Series, an X6, due to launch later in the year. The X6 is 60-footer is based on the Elandra 53, a boutique brand that Maritimo bought in 2016, but will be reworked and renamed to better integrate the Maritimo fleet.
Maritimo is working on a new three boat X Series — the X5, X6 and X7 — of 50, 60 and 70ft lengths, with the vanguard X6 due for release in 2017.
The signature feature of these boats will be an aft cabana in the transom that can be customised as a fourth cabin with queen bed, bar and beach club, watersports centre and more.
Shhhh… stay tuned for more information on the Top Secret Maritimo Picnic Boat Project
