SPACE CONQUERED IN NEW MARITIMO C50
Internationally renowned luxury cruiser manufacturer Maritimo will unveil for the first time its revolutionary C50 IPS Sports Cabriolet at the upcoming Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show.
The C50 IPS boasts a spacious full-beam master stateroom equipped with ensuite, king sized bed, chaise lounge and make-up vanity. The stateroom is a design masterpiece which Maritimo says brings a level of space, luxury and comfort to the sports cruiser sector of the market that has never seen before.
“One of the greatest challenges facing manufacturers is creating space in sports cruisers and with the C50 IPS we have cracked the code,” said Maritimo’s marketing director Luke Durman.
“We are confident that when the luxury cruiser buying public see what we have achieved in this vessel they will be very impressed.”
Mr Durman said Maritimo’s reputation for performance, engineering, safety and creating vessels that first and foremost deliver excellent sea-keeping ability had not been compromised in the new design.
“By using IPS propulsion we have been able to create space within the boat that would have been unheard of in a boat of this size only a few years back,” he said.
“There are a total of three lavish staterooms and the level of finish within the vessel truly sets it apart.”
The C50 IPS will be powered by twin Volvo D6 435MHP with IPS 600 Drives. It features two bathrooms and the single level open planning living quarters and aft galley provide the idea environment for family relaxation and also entertaining.
Mr Durman said visitors to the Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show would be the first in the world to view the new sports cabriolet.
Maritimo has an extensive dealer network in the USD and the President of Maritimo USA, Dave Northrop said the number of sales of the Australian made cruisers was increasing annually.
“Maritimo is the creation of Australian boating legend Bill Barry-Cotter and above all Bill is renowned for his skill and ability to create serious passage making vessels that perform brilliantly in any conditions,” he said.
“We have many very satisfied Maritimo owners in the US and more and more are joining the Maritimo family as they discover just how special these boats really are.”
Mr Durman said the Maritimo display at Miami would include $4.5 million worth of vessels.
On November 10, several Maritimo's and several more Maritimo owners convened at Key West for the first North American Maritimo Muster, ( "down under" lingo for Rendezvous!) and for the running of the Key West World Offshore Championships. The Maritimo race team, a common site on the world Offshore Racing Circuit, was there for their first ever participation in an offshore race in the United States. With boats attending from as far away as South Carolina, and Maritimo owners from California and Trinidad, we knew we were in for a great weekend!
We were hosted by Dave Northrop of Maritimo USA, and we were happy to have the CEO of Maritimo, Bill BarryCotter and his lovely wife Leslie in attendance as well. Maritimo owners with their boats stayed at the Galleon Marina, where we had a commanding view of the race course from the top of the hotel, and guests without their boats enjoyed first class accommodations at The Reach, a Waldorf' Astoria resort on the beach side in Key West. We were treated to a breakfast on the deck at the Galleon, where Dave and Bill filled us in on all the happenings at Maritimo, including a sneak peak at plans directly aimed at expanding their presence here in the United States, and representatives from Cat and Cummins were there to discuss future plans for marine propulsion as well.
We finished the weekend up at a beautiful group dinner where we celebrated a fantastic second place with the Maritimo Race Team, and promised each other that this was just the start of more Maritimo USA events. All left looking forward to meeting up again soon.
