Maritimo has unveiled the latest exciting addition to the recently revealed Offshore Series of motor yachts, with the S600 Offshore Sedan Motor Yacht announcement.
The S600 Offshore Motor Yacht is the first sedan model within the new generation of Offshore Motor Yachts, set to attract global attention as a sensational, true blue water, long-range offshore cruising platform.
The Offshore Series exemplifies everything that the Maritimo brand stands for – long-range cruising capability, industry-defining performance and economy, offshore seaworthiness and high levels of construction integrity.
Maritimo’s significant investment in design and new model development has seen the M600 Offshore Flybridge Motor Yacht herald in the new Offshore Series for Maritimo earlier this year. The S600 Offshore Global Reveal brings this year’s total number of new Maritimo models to be globally revealed or launched to four, with another four more global reveals to come before year’s end.
The new S600 is centred upon a hull design that is a progressive evolution of Maritimo’s longstanding experience in long-range cruising design and world-leading shaft drive performance and efficiency.
With its offshore cockpit and hardtop utility space, the S600 will have broad appeal both as a highly functional fishing vessel, with its speciality open water fishing attributes, and as a long-range, low height, high volume, luxury motor yacht capable of inter-continental passage making.
The remarkable offshore cockpit with enclosed transom makes the S600 Offshore ideal for those with varying fishing interests or any that embrace the encapsulated deck space with solid separation to the sea.
In terms of performance, the S600 is uniquely Maritimo. “The variable deadrise hull with deep keel, sharp bow entry and flattened progression aft has been focused on offshore cruising performance, comfort and stability,” said Maritimo’s lead designer Tom Barry-Cotter.
Maritimo’s long-held focus and dedication to the development of shaft-driven technology has positioned the brand as world leaders in shaft drive performance and long-range cruising.
The S600’s straight shaft drives will be powered by standard twin inline six-cylinder Volvo Penta D13 800MHP power units. Paired with Maritimo’s hull and straight shaft technology, they will deliver world-class fuel efficiency and excellent operating economy combined with very low emissions. Optional power units include Volvo Penta inline six-cylinder D13- 1000MHP or Scania V8 Di16-1200 MHP power units.
Cruising efficiency and capacity meld to give the S600 incredible long-range capability with a 4550 litre (1200 US Gal) fuel capacity.
The S600’s expanded cockpit hardtop coverage has amplified the area above on the often-inaccessible sedan hardtop.
The hardtop has been designed and engineered to carry the weight of 350kg davit and tender, freeing up the rear of the boat.
The S600 can be optioned with no rear platform for more serious fishing, and various game tower designs can integrate with the hardtop utility deck.
The aft deck space offers two distinct cockpit areas; the upper lounging and entertaining cockpit is sheltered from the elements by the extensive moulded hardtop headliner and the offshore cockpit.
With the expansive aft entertaining and offshore cockpit seamlessly connected via either siding or bi-fold doors to the traditional Maritimo aft galley, the S600 is an entertainer’s dream.
With its residential proportions, the aft galley connects the upper cockpit deck with the enormous saloon lounging area.
Below decks, the luxury accents are continued. “Three spacious staterooms and two ensuites, with full-beam king master stateroom, queen offset forward stateroom, and twin single starboard guest’s stateroom greet owners and their families,” said Barry-Cotter.
