Maritimo’s M55 Flybridge Set For 2021
Cruise the coast in class-leading, designer comfort.
Aimed squarely at comfortable cruising, Australian luxury motor yacht manufacturer Maritimo recently unveiled its new M55 flybridge motor yacht – an alluring addition to the already acclaimed M-Series range.
Born of Maritimo’s extensive experience developing long range cruisers, the M55 focuses on cruising efficiency – something the brand is synonymous for – and is set to hit the water in early 2021.
“Cruising efficiency and ocean proven dependability are key to the concept of any long-range motor yacht,” says Tom Barry-Cotter, Maritimo director of design. “The new M55 is set to be revolutionary in these categories.”
This is achieved, in part, due to Maritimo’s focus on direct shaft technology which drives the M55 through twin Volvo Penta D11-670MHP power units as standard. The combination of technology alongside the vessel’s 4550-litre fuel capacity sees the M55 capable of extensive long-range adventures.
Above the surface the M55 caters to a practical boating lifestyle with features such as the enclosed climate-controlled flybridge skylounge, internal flybridge stairs, aft galley, walk around side deck and practical deck spaces – all of which have delivered newfound international standards for motor yacht design.
“Every aspect of the design has been obsessively reflected upon 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.
The adventure deck – which can be optioned with electric actuators – unveils a completely lined 2.8 -metre tender garage complete with a 250kg rated davit. The adventure deck lower cockpit can be coupled with a 1.4-metre long platform – extending the entertaining space for extended sunny days with guests.
A step up sees one arrive at the upper cockpit and alfresco deck space with the aft galley seamlessly connected to form an extensive saloon. Adding light and air to the saloon and flybridge is Maritimo’s two-stage sliding windows, which seamlessly allow enticing indoor/outdoor living.
Beyond the aft bifold doors is an immense flybridge deck space – optioned with further alfresco lounging with full hardtop coverage from the elements and an opening optional skylight.
Below deck, the M55 sleeps six, offering three spacious staterooms and two ensuites while the enclosed flybridge skylounge incorporates lounging areas which can easily be converted to additional sleeping areas if required. Price on application.
