Just two years after the company’s launch, ILIAD Catamarans has been nominated for one of the world’s most prestigious awards.
The ILIAD 60 motor yacht has been nominated in the 2022 Multihull of the Year award in the MultiYacht category, which is a superb testament to the features and quality of the shipyard’s range.
The ILIAD 60 is not due for release until early 2022 but has been recognised by the judging panel with a particular acknowledgment of the model’s emphasis on “controlling fuel consumption in order to extend the range to over 3,500 miles.”
The awards are run by leading international magazines Multihulls World and Multicoques Mag with a judging panel comprising some of the world’s leading boating experts. The ILIAD 60 is the ultimate fuel-efficient power catamaran that boasts one of the longest-range capabilities in her class at more than 3,500nm. Featuring a bridge deck height of 1.15 metres at half load, the catamaran strikes an impressive silhouette and features outstanding craftsmanship, cutting-edge design and construction excellence to deliver unparalleled performance and class-leading fuel efficiency.
The catamaran is designed for sublime relaxation and social gatherings with a choice of spacious alfresco areas. The superb flybridge (open or fully enclosed) seats ten in luxurious comfort and features an independent galley complete with refrigeration, BBQ/grill, separate bar fridge, ice maker and more.
The foredeck is an idyllic space for enjoying sunset cocktails on the adjustable sunbathing pads, while owners can dine alfresco in the generous cockpit, which features seamless access to the epicurean galley and saloon.
Accommodation onboard is voluminous and beautifully proportioned, with each cabin featuring oversized ensuites, superb natural light and absolute privacy. For extended-passage voyagers, the exclusive owner’s hull can also incorporate a dedicated laundry, workshop, office and even separate crew quarters with separate bow access.
The ILIAD 60’s design allows for either traditional davits fitted to her transom or a transom-lift platform for launching the tender and use as a dive platform. An optional flybridge-mounted crane can also be fitted to lift. Optimal safety is assured with clutter-free decks, wide walkways, and full composite-built stairwell with ergonomic handrails to the flybridge.
ILIAD Catamarans has enjoyed remarkable success since its launch in 2019 with more than 15 models sold and the team fielding enormous enquiries for future orders.
