NEW RELEASES - MARITIMO 440 IPS OFFSHORE CONVERTIBLE
Maritimo will launch its revolutionary new 440 Offshore Convertible — complete with internal staircase, an enclosed flybridge, three-cabin layout and twin Volvo Penta IPS600 pod-drives — at this year’s Sydney International Boat Show (starting late July).
The luxury Australian boatbuilder said the 440 OC offers an extraordinary level of space and comfort in a 44-foot convertible cruiser, including a revolutionary aft bulkhead design featuring bi-fold doors that tuck away to open the saloon out to the aft cockpit.
Maritimo said the new model has an array of features only previously seen on much larger boats, including:
* A three-side enclosed flybridge
* Internal teak-tread staircase
* Aft galley
* Bi-fold doors opening the saloon to the cockpit
* Three cabin/two bathroom accommodation
* Volvo Penta IPS propulsion
Adaptable for big game sportfishing, family weekends away, or long-distance cruising, Maritimo said its 440 Offshore Convertible will comfortable sleep five in three separate cabins.
Powered by twin Volvo Penta IPS 600 pod-drives, the 440 Offshore Convertible has a fully equipped aft galley, with four-burner electric cooktop, convection microwave and standing refrigerator/freezer built into a space under the flybridge stairs as well as ample storage.
Forward in the saloon is an L-shaped leather lounge to starboard with an L-shape dinette opposite. Moving ahead, three steps down a central companionway, the accommodation includes a master stateroom forward with a walkaround queen double bed and hanging lockers on either side. An en suite bathroom is on the port side, equipped with a separate shower stall with frameless glass door, electric toilet and a vanity. Fixed portlights in the hull provide natural light in this stateroom even when the deck hatch is sealed.
Maritimo said a double cabin on the port side and single to starboard are flooded with natural light through large portlights in the hull. The port cabin has the option of an additional single bunk athwartships. These two cabins share the second day-bathroom on the starboard side, forward of the midships cabin.
The enclosed flybridge is reached via an aft-facing teak tread moulded staircase in the port aft corner of the saloon. It features an aft helm position so the skipper has great visibility both forward and aft, the boatbuilder said. A deck immediately behind the helm is a great viewing platform for gamefish action, or for simply soaking up the sun. Seating for guests is forward of the helm.
With a fuel capacity of 2000lt, the new Maritimo 440 Offshore Convertible has been designed as an ideal family boat, said the company.
The 440 Offshore Convertible is priced at $850,000.
