Maritimo unveils sixth model

Australian luxury motor yacht manufacturer, Maritimo has unveiled its sixth new model in 2021, the S60 Sedan Motor Yacht.

The yacht, due for its official global launch in mid-2022, will join the S51, S55, and S70 as the latest addition to the Maritimo S-Series lineage.

“The response to our new models from our customers this year has been astounding and we expect the new S60 to see that momentum continue,” says Maritimo design director, Tom Barry-Cotter.

The S60’s variable deadrise hull with deep keel, sharp bow entry and flattened progression aft has been focused on offshore cruising performance, comfort and stability, says Maritimo.

“Engrained in the Maritimo ethos of reliability and dependability, the S60’s new hull design and engineering are designed around straight shaft drive technology, with the standard Volvo Penta D13-800MHP power units transferring power to the water via an ultra-efficient 8-degree straight shaft angle to the 5-blade nibral propellers,” adds Barry-Cotter.

“The low 8-degree shaft angle also reduces overall draft to a very versatile 1.35m (4’4”) opening an array of anchorage possibilities within any region. 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 S60 also caters for the option of Volvo Penta or CAT power units up to 1000MHP or Scania 1150MHP power units. It has a fuel capacity of 4550L (1200 US GAL) and the fuel system is comprised of three tanks that are designed to lower the vessel’s centre of gravity to further increase stability.

Two wing tanks flanking each hull side complement a 2300L (607 US GAL) main tank located along the S60’s keel line, keeping the main mass of fuel as low as possible in the hull. The triple tank fuel system means refuelling can take place through a single filler from either side of the vessel.

Maritimo says that its design team has acted on previous feedback about deck and accommodation space, having heavily emphasised the amount of space within these areas, by creating bias to the amount of rear deck space when addressing the overall proportions of the exterior design. The result is a balanced exterior profile, with a large cockpit deck, and adventure deck space.

The hardtop has been designed and engineered to be capable of carrying the weight of 350kg davit and tender, with a view to freeing up the adventure deck and aft garage spaces for more entertaining or storage capability.

As well as the adventure deck, there is a further expanse of deck space within the upper cockpit, which has the ability to transform into a protected indoor/outdoor alfresco area via concealed clears or breezeway hidden away within the overhead headliner.

“Every aspect of the design of the new S60, and indeed the other models revealed this year, has been obsessively considered and refined during the design and new-product development process, to achieve the functional solutions, comfort and living spaces we set out to achieve,” adds Barry-Cotter.

“Maritimo’s passionate craftspeople and staff are extremely excited about this new addition to the sedan series and remain steadfastly committed to ensuring we stay at the forefront of luxury motor yacht design and manufacturing internationally.”
