A bold new chapter in luxury cruiser manufacturer Maritimo’s  history is set to begin with the highly anticipated release of the new X-series motor yacht.

Tom Barry-Cotter, son of the company’s founder Bill Barry-Cotter, said the ‘X-Series’ stems from the largest design and development project ever undertaken in the company’s history, further solidifying the brand’s long-term future plan.

‘The shaft driven, Maritimo X60 will be the most technologically advanced vessel the company has ever manufactured, with performance and systems developed collaboratively with the World Champion Maritimo Racing Team using race-proven components and the latest 3D modeling and fluid dynamics software,” he said. “The X60 will inherit and evolve on the attributes of sea-going performance, durability and fuel economy synonymous with the Maritimo brand.”

In a world first for a vessel of its size, this latest creation from Maritimo is set to revolutionise the sport yacht boating seascape. The Maritimo X60 design features a large aft cabin and en-suite accessible from both swim platform and saloon, which provides customers with customisable spaces only seen on larger superyachts.

Barry-Cotter says the incorporation of an aft cabin is an exciting, new direction in motor yacht design.

“The X Series is a result of an extensive customer focused design and development process from our ongoing R&D program,” says Barry-Cotter. “The X60 design makes a statement, whether at sea or at anchor. 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.”

The Maritimo X60’s aft cabin incorporates twin entry points, via swim platform and the internal staircase from the saloon, extending the X60’s living space to that similar of 70ft vessels. It then enables customers to opt between Beach Club, Queen Stateroom, Euro Galley or Service Cabin with optional tender garage and laundry.

The innovative Beach Club aft cabin option forms a cabana style twin level entertaining and relaxation space that connects aft to the vast swim platform area. An in-built mini galley and bar allow for a wide range of refrigeration and storage options.
