Australian luxury boat manufacturer Maritimo made a strategic decision late last year to re-focus on its core strengths and to design and release a totally new range of high performance luxury motoryachts and the sleek new Maritimo M58 is a result of that re-think.
The Maritimo M58 Motoryacht has the very DNA of the world renowned Bill Barry-Cotter flybridge cruiser range running right through it.
Perfectly engineered, delivering top fuel efficiency, demonstrating exceptional sea-keeping abilities and provides a luxurious, livable and totally functional onboard environment for the discerning skipper and his family or friends the Maritimo M58 is a ‘boatie’s boat.’
Maritimo Marketing Director Luke Durman said everything about the M58 had been thoroughly researched and reviewed and the inclusion of benefits such as the full beam master state room with ensuite and chaise lounge, make-up vanity or study and large portholes port and starboard guaranteed its appeal.
“On the business end of things the nine degree shaft angle and thick shaft diameter, dynamic variable dead rise hand laid hull, with five year structural guarantee, and shaft drive technology with Twin Disc EJS provides a formidable package,” he said.
“There’s also large fuel tanks for long range cruising and the best fuel efficiency in its class so you can go further for longer.”
Mr Durman said the M58 really came into its own in terms of the living environment.
Its fully enclosed flybridge, accessed by internal stairs, is protected from the weather and with its dinette converting to a large double it provides a second stateroom for guests or extended family.
With its extended aft flybridge balcony, bar and drinks fridge it is the perfect place to relax at the end of the day and watch the sun go down or the stars come out.
Stepping in from the wide teak laid cockpit wide opening bi-fold doors make for ease of entry and create an air of open plan, breezy spacious single level living. There is a fully equipped aft galley, a large dining table capable of accommodating six diners, ample storage space and plush lounges for relaxing.
The transom entertainment console with barbeque, sink and eutectic freezer is the perfect place to enjoy a drink and grill the catch of the day.
Forward saloon windows allow ample natural light into the saloon and the finishes throughout are top of the range, according to Mr Durman.
“We have looked at all the little things,” he said. “The internal staircase has stainless steep rails, treads and support beam, there’s a moulded staircase to the engine room which has a moulded gelcoat engine room liner bonded to the hull, the flybridge has a sunroof, there’s port and starboard fender and rope storage, the lazarette is large and capable of storing all the toys, basically we have thought of everything.”
Mr Durman said the M58 would come standard with twin Volvo D13 800MHP engines and have cruising speed of approximately 25 knots.
The vessel sleeps a total eight people in privacy and comfort and there are two fully equipped bathrooms including the master stateroom ensuite.
The M58 will be marketed at $2.26 million.
