Maritimo, leading Australian builder of bespoke luxury motor yachts, is delighted to announce it will display two exciting enclosed flybridge yachts, the M51 and M59 - at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2018.
The 16.2-meter M51 is the smallest Maritimo yacht. She combines breathtaking performance and impressive features embodied in the unmistakable Maritimo design – a genuine long-range luxury motor yacht for those looking for space, comfort and power.
The performance is a strong feature of the Maritimo range and the M51 is no stranger in this department. The compact yacht reaches 30 knots and has a cruising speed of 18 knots – enough for 500 nautical miles with refueling. At the same time, thanks to the efficient hull lines, the M51’s range is above 2200 miles at economical speeds of 6-7 knots, which is quite impressive for a 51-footer.
Recently, this model has been thoroughly updated. The M51 undergone significant floor plan and interior design advancements. Updates offer a new ergonomic twin helm seat dashboard design and further enhancements to the master stateroom. An optional mood lighting addition elevate the level of comfort and enable the onboard environment to be the perfect retreat.
The 18-meter M59 is the newest member of the brand’s popular series of flybridge yachts. Like the other boats from Maritimo, she is very rigid and tough thanks to the strong and seaworthy hull and smart naval architecture. These important factors combine with spacious, luminous interiors, the comfortable enclosed flybridge, protected from any whims of weather, and highest possible standard of manufacturing to form a winning combination.
The M59 is styled by David Stewart Design. She is a three-cabin, two-bathroom vessel with a wide beam and large back opening lazarette.
“These boats are very easy to use and a very low maintenance”, said Craig Harvey, CEO at Spencership. “All the systems on board are easy operate, standard circuit breakers for the electric systems, fully moulded engine room liners for easy clean ups. The key Maritimo features are safety at sea, spacious areas, full beam master cabin. Maritimo’s boats are semi-custom, and therefore not mass produced. This gives much greater quality of finished product, they are designed for passage making in rough water. In addition, the company offers the owners to come and use their new boat in Australia before it is shipped to Europe. This gives the client the chance to explore Australian waters in their own boat and they can have factory additions to boat before it ships”.
