New Maritimo M65 first look [video + gallery]
In this video Trade-a-Boat has a first look at the luxurious new Maritimo M65.
NEW MARITIMO M65
The new Maritimo M65 luxury yacht is much like all Maritimo boats. That is, it’s a "driver’s boat" and our review model here was no exception.
Power comes from twin CAT C18 1150hp engines that happily do around 30kts. The setup has Twin Disc thrusters to keep her in place. The result is a Maritimo that’s easy to drive and manoeuvre.
In line with the "driver’s boat" feel, the layout is intended to give the driver (who is usually the owner) an excellent view and unobstructed access to the rest of the boat. The flybridge has seating for up to 8, plus an adjacent and very nice outdoor entertaining area. In short, the Maritimo M65 takes social cruising to a whole new level.
The excellent layout of the aft galley is a key feature on all Maritimo boats. Again, on the Maritimo M65 it’s brilliantly set up for entertaining. You can get into the aft galley directly from stairs and then head straight out to the entertaining cockpit, or alternatively head out to the spacious lounge. Along with the aft galley and driver’s quality, the large walkaround is yet another key feature in Maritimo boats. On the M65 this makes access and berthing both easy and safe.
Accommodation on the Maritimo M65 includes the master suite, a pair of double guest rooms and a single twin. There are also twin ensuite bathrooms.
Interesting fact: the master suite on the M65 is just 100mm narrower than on the Maritimo M73. Somehow, Maritimo has managed to include a desk, couch and king size bed into this comfortable layout. However, it doesn’t end there. The master suite also has a full-beam bathroom — with a twin-head shower.
