New Model: Maritimo C47 Sports Cabriolet

Maritimo unveiled the new C47 Sports Cabriolet at the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show, revealing with it some world first IPS safety features, along the usual dynamic looks, styling and performance of this range. Most important the C47 Sports Cabriotlet introduces the world first positive buoyancy chambers in the engine room that house the twin Volvo Penta IPS600 power plants. During project Maritimo was concerned that due to the engines and fuel tanks both located aft, a breach in the hull could trap people forward, so the company worked it out with naval architect Stuart Ballantyne to integrate positive buoyancy tanks on the sides of the engine room. According to Volvo this is the first IPS build to have both water tight bulkheads and buoyancy chambers. Maritimo C47 Sports Cabriolet is also the first build coming from Oceania which gets a full Volvo Certified installation. This is a sets of rules dictating laminate schedule, the rings of the pods, and the fuel lines running at the bottom of the tanks. The C47 Sports Cabriolet continues the comfort of this range having a living on the main deck, two double cabins with full view windows below, and an aft deck which becomes an Al fresco entertainment area. The C47 also features a high low bathing platform for easy tender stowage.
