Australia’s world-famous luxury motor yacht builder, Maritimo, is set to shine again in the United States.

The leading luxury motor yacht manufacturer will debut two of its prestige enclosed flybridge models at the upcoming Miami International Boat Show in Florida this February.

The Miami International Boat Show is a major show on the USA boating calendar. After their success at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show last year, Maritimo is thrilled about the upcoming debut. Maritimo will display four of its largest models in Miami, including two of the revolutionary X 60 coupes, a model that irrevocably changed the sports yacht sector after its launch early in 2018.

Following constructive feedback from boating enthusiasts at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show last year, Maritimo Americas’ President Dave Northrop is confident that the enclosed bridge M64 and new optional layout M54 will be extremely popular.

“A lot of people who visited our display in Fort Lauderdale said they would like to see larger versions of the M series with the enclosed flybridge,” he said.

“The M64 is a stunning boat and the new layout in the M54 provides a whole new dimension to that model so we believe they will both be well received in Miami.”

“Maritimo is one of the few manufacturers selling in the USA that produces a climate controlled enclosed flybridge and a lot of our buyers are attracted by that point of difference.”

Following the huge success Maritimo experienced in Fort Lauderdale, Northrop and his team confirmed that they have sold three M54’s and three M51’s.

The X60 sport yacht with the aft beach club and Regency Suite accommodations are also expected to turn heads at the Miami show.

“The new M64 illustrates all the great things we do in spades and its USA debut will generate a lot of interest I am sure.”

Maritimo CEO Garth Corbitt said the company’s international strategic expansion was on track and the market in the USA was a major focus of that strategy.

The USA has warmed quickly to the fine hand-built craftsmanship of Maritimo’s motor yachts. With their combination of exceptional performance pedigree and timeless elegance and attention to the smallest of details, Maritimo is ever more popular with the US market.

“Through Dave we have significantly expanded our dealer partner network in the USA and we now have a seriously strong team including some dealers who are multi generational businesses with track records spanning more than half a century, “he said.

“Enclosed flybridge boats are at the very heart of what we do and while the response to the X60 sport yacht has been nothing short of phenomenal the bulk of our sales are still flybridge motor yachts.

“The design and performance of these motor yachts with their proven seakeeping capability are what stands us apart from the competition.

“They are race bred in terms of the technology and the finish and fit out is world class.”
