New Model: Maritimo S55

Leading Australian luxury motor yacht manufacturer Maritimo, has unveiled the brand new S55 Sedan Motor Yacht at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show. The new S55 is the latest addition to the esteemed sedan motor yacht series, renowned for long range adventuring, offshore cruising, and ocean tested stability and performance, features which form the foundation of Maritimo’s building ethos. Maritimo S55 has been designed to meet the lifestyle expectations for sport yacht enthusiasts seeking space, comfort, and luxury with a focal emphasis on long range offshore cruising and adventuring. Plans of the highly anticipated new model were revealed late in 2020, and has since seen the S55 Sedan already capture the attention of current Maritimo owners, and other boaters from around the globe, with orders placed prior to the official debut more than any Maritimo S-Series predecessor.  The new S55 hull is an advanced evolution of Maritimo’s longstanding experience in long range cruising design, with a variable deadrise hull with deep keel, sharp bow entry and flattened progression aft focusing on offshore cruising performance, comfort and stability. The foundations of the new S55’s hull design and engineering is focused on direct shaft drive technology. Maritimo has continually developed hull and engineering design specifically for shaft technology. This focus and dedication to the development of shaft driven technology has positioned Maritimo as world leaders in shaft driven performance and long range cruising design. The direct shaft drives will be powered by standard twin Volvo 670hp, with options taking power from Volvo, Scania or CAT up to 1000hp. The displayed S55-01 featured optional Volvo Penta 800hp, reaching top speeds up to thirty knots. The S55 also shines in its long-range capabilities with the 4550 litres fuel capacity and highly efficient performance enabling a range up to 488 nautical miles at a cruise of twenty knots. The Maritimo S-Series sedan motor yacht has long been renowned for catering to a practical single level boating lifestyle, and the S55 has encompassed the successful idea of a practical deck space with its new adventure deck lower cockpit design. The adventure deck creates an incredible water-sports with practical proximity to the water. It incorporates the option to be opened with electric actuators to unveil a fully lined tender garage with 250kg davit for owners looking to conceal tenders away from the rear platform. The adventure deck lower cockpit can also be integrated with an optional extended platform to create a mammoth deck space with endless practical applications. One step up from the lower cockpit, is the upper cockpit alfresco deck space, with easy access to deep walkthrough side decks. The upper cockpit is fully sheltered by the extended hardtop headliner, providing complete cover for the alfresco area. Adding further cover is the option for roll down breezeway or clears which provide complete 360 degree protection for the deck space. The design also conveniently conceals the clears with moulded headliner recesses when stored. The amount of floor space offered in the upper cockpit alfresco deck leads the market in the mid 50 foot category, with standard rear U-shape lounging and dining table and further option of opposing lounging flanking each side of the area. Maritimo is renowned for breaking the status quo, and the S55 is no exception. The expanded cockpit hardtop coverage has amplified the amount of area above, on the often-inaccessible sedan hardtop.
