New Model: Intermarine 60

The Brazilian boat builder Intermarine founded in 1973 continues the path into its new course as outlined in the fall of 2010 and presents the first of its fully made in house motor yachts and cruisers.  First to launch of this new era for Intermarine which will feature seven models is the 60 designed by Fernando de Almeida together with the yard's technical department.  As the above picture shows the Intermarine 60 is a very European looking design, with a curvy futuristic exterior line, and large glass surfaces featured in every area.  But a larger to the usual aft deck which is something of high demand in Brazil is also to be found in the very wisely designed 60 which shows the long term experience of Intermarine maturing in its own designs.  The main deck living interior area of the 60 offers a split level saloon; with C-shaped sofa, dining table, galley, and helm station.  Down below is the space for three double guest cabins all featured with a personal en-suite shower head. The middle cabin is also equipped with sliding single beds which on the occasion can also become a double berth. The owners stateroom located to midships features a dinette breakfast table to starboard side by the large view windows.  An intelligent option in the owners room is that the dinette can be changed to a sofa, chaise lounge, or vanity desk depending on your preference. To aft is a larger to the usual twin berths crew cabin also served with shower head.  The flybridge offers two sunbathing areas to fore and aft, between the C-shaped dinette, with a helm station, and wet bar located to port side. Power is from twin Volvo 900hp engines which will give a wide open throttle speed of 33 knots.
