Maritimo Reveals its Latest and Largest
Maritimo’s M75 Flybridge Motor Yacht makes its global debut.
Australian luxury motor yacht manufacturer Maritimo begins a new era with the largest build in its history. The new M75 Flybridge Motor Yacht (75’ 8” LOA; 19’ 8” beam) is the latest evolution of Maritimo’s long standing experience in long-range cruising hull design. The variable deadrise hull with deep keel, sharp bow entry, and flattened progression aft focuses on offshore cruising efficiency, cruising comfort, and stability.
The Scania Di16 1,150-mhp engines are the standard propulsion units that transfer power to the water via an ultra-efficient, shallow, straight shaft angle to the 5-blade Nibral propellers. The M75’s low-angle, straight shaft drives also reduce overall draft to a very versatile 4 feet, 11 inches, which opens an array of anchorage possibilities in any region. The 2,510-gallon standard fuel capacity combined with Maritimo’s esteemed economical cruising efficiency will ensure owners can reach a wide range of secluded destinations with minimal stops.
Maritimo has continually evolved and refined the flybridge motor yacht concept with close collaboration between its in-house Australian design team and its growing family of Maritimo owners around the world.
Of all the Maritimo flagships that have preceded it, none have had the level of customer input or degree of design development as the M75 Flybridge Motor Yacht. Director of Design Tom Barry-Cotter said the all-new M75 has stemmed from the most in-depth design and development process ever undertaken in Maritimo’s history.
The global debut of the iconic new flagship marks the seventh launch or reveal for Maritimo in 2021, as the renowned long-range motor yacht brand sees unprecedented demand with several orders for the M75 already in its production pipeline.
“Step aboard, and the first impression the M75 emanates is certainly that of unsurpassed amounts of deck space,” said Barry-Cotter. “The M75 adventure deck creates an incredibly versatile hub for lounging, cooking, adventuring or storage, with plenty of room to spare.
“Front and center of the immense adventure deck is the wet bar module with sink, top-loading refrigeration, and electric grill,” he added. “Integral within the wet bar module is access to the utility cabin with secondary engine room access. Flanking each side of the adventure deck are large top-loading storage lockers and aft fairleads with optional capstan winches.
“Three steps up from the adventure deck is the gigantic upper cockpit deck, where the deck space spreads outward to the outer bulwarks, maximizing available deck space, thanks to the on-deck storage lockers being located aft on the lower adventure deck.”
The aft galley serves both indoor and outdoor dining areas and socially connects those preparing the meal with those who are dining. The furniture is designed in modules so owners can arrange the cockpit in a variety of alignments to comfortably seat eight guests or more.
The fully enclosed flybridge and skylounge have an internal staircase and a pair of distinct internal lounging areas, which can conveniently convert to additional sleeping berths if necessary.
Accommodations are designed around a four-stateroom, three-head layout with a forward VIP ensuite stateroom with offset queen berth, a twin ensuite cabin and day head to starboard, a spacious bunk cabin to port, and an exceptional master ensuite stateroom with a centerline king berth.
The tender garage can house a 10-foot, 3-inch tender when optioned with a 770-pound rear davit, and there’s plenty of storage everywhere.
The M75 Flybridge Motor Yacht is slated for its official launch late 2022, but get in line, it’s going to be a desired beauty. maritimoamericas.com
