The global launch of the flagship S75 heralds the start of Maritmo’s 20th Anniversary celebrations
Australian luxury motor yacht maker, Maritimo, has announced the arrival of its new long-range Maritimo S75 Sedan Motor Yacht.
“We are incredibly proud to be launching this majestic vessel and of what it represents for Maritimo,” says Tom Barry-Cotter, managing director of Maritimo. “The S75 is the culmination of over three years of development by the dedicated Maritimo team. The company has invested hundreds of thousands of hours in the planning, development, and pre-production of the S75, collaborating with Maritimo owners intensively throughout the process.”
The S75 Sedan showcases Maritimo’s signature deep-sided walkaround decks, which are integrated into the form of the vessel, and lead to the forward outdoor lounge area, with a free-standing sun bed and forward-facing lounge.
The S75’s hull design features massive panoramic glass areas in the hull and saloon, which tease at what will be on offer for the occupants gazing outwards. The curvature of the front screen is an engineering masterpiece and integrates gloriously with the moulded form of the saloon.
Upon stepping on board the S75, the vast, open nature of the rear Adventure Deck is apparent. At just shy of 200 square feet, it is big enough to play basketball while at anchor — place a hoop on the back of the targa bar and shoot from the free throw line.
Sitting just above the waterline, the Adventure Deck creates a visual and functional connectivity with the ocean, and also provides a welcoming space for lounging, barbecuing, and relaxation.
Stepping up to the grand upper-cockpit deck space and alfresco lounging area, these well-appointed spaces offer good opportunities for entertaining and alfresco dining, or full weather protection when needed.
Maritimo’s renowned style and practicality is demonstrated once again with the aft galley, offering a refined palette of materials and finishes. The S75’s galley serves both in and outdoor dining areas and is specially designed for extended stays aboard.
Moving into the saloon, panoramic glazed areas create a light and airy space. This plush and relaxing zone offers dedicated lounging and dining options. An enormous 65-inch screen on the port side reveals itself via an electric lift. Additionally, the screen can be swivelled and subsequently viewed from the galley, and even the upper cockpit.
An elevated cruising lounge allows for great interaction with those on the helm, while the atrium stairwell at the front of the saloon floats in space and captures light to create a welcoming arrival point to the accommodation level below.
The master stateroom is described as “an indulgent sanctuary within an abundance of space and light,” delivered by glazing from both sides of the room. The master stateroom takes advantage of the full beam of the vessel with a centrally located king-size berth. The three-quarter beam master ensuite adjoins and also provides an abundance of space and storage, while bespoke materials and fixtures soak in natural light and fresh air via the large hull window and opening.
The forward stateroom and ensuite and starboard stateroom and bathroom on the S75 Sedan accommodate up to four guests in comfort.
“You’ll notice that there are smooth moulded finishes everywhere on the vessel — even in the engine room when you look up,” says Maritimo operations director, Phil Candler.
“This is the result of continued development in our production processes and how we have designed and constructed the S75. It really is a new era for Maritimo,” Candler continues. “The main mouldings are backed up with moulded liners, which not only allow us to create sub-assemblies for synchronised production flow, it creates even more inherent strength in the vessel. We’ve added to our patented liner system, which affords even greater ocean-going capabilities and further minimizes any noise and vibration.”
The S75 Sedan is powered by twin Scania 1150 hp DI16 V8 engines. Maritimo is also the first Australian manufacturer to offer an optional Rolls Royce Power Systems mtu, which is available in the twin 1625hp 2000 Series V10 engines.
“When you consider the evolution of Maritimo over the last 20 years, it is clear that the foundations for the development of the S75 really started back then,” Barry-Cotter adds. “When Bill Barry-Cotter founded Maritimo back in 2003, he had the vision to see the scale of vessels that we would be producing today, and he set about creating an environment where that would be possible.”
He concludes: “The global launch of the S75 heralds the start of Maritmo’s 20th Anniversary celebrations. And what could be more fitting in our 20th year than releasing this grand vessel? The S75 is the epitome of everything that is Maritimo.”
