Maritimo S75 boat test

Mark Rothfield
Big things are expected of Maritimo’s largest-ever motor yacht.

Maritimo’s new S75 sport yacht has lots riding on its broad shoulders – inspiration, perspiration, celebration, and also lofty expectations from the entire Queensland-based production team.

The sleek sedan represents the zenith of 20 years of boatbuilding and, with its long-awaited arrival, Maritimo has joined the international premier league.

The company previously offered a 70-footer (2017-2021), so it wasn’t a giant step in length but more a leap in sophistication. As an example, the S70’s coachroof had a long overhang whereas the S75 offers a large Aussie-style adventure deck, along with an optional hydraulic boarding platform.

How you utilise this prime real estate is up to you, but one possibility is to plonk some portable outdoor furniture here and enjoy nibbles while peering over the infinity-edged platform.

Storage wise, there is a cavernous under-floor garage that, in the test boat’s case, was home to not one but two gyros. A moulding for the wetbar and utility room door sits well forward, forming the back of the upper cockpit lounge. The mezzanine cockpit in turn provides a further 16.3sq m of living area.

Enjoying sun protection, including a canvas awning extension, the space features an L-shaped lounge to starboard that’s served by a drop-leaf table. A further option is to have opposing lounges.

Entering the cabin through the sliding glass door, the S75 also does ‘inside living’ brilliantly. Immediately aft and to starboard is the C-shaped galley with full-height fridge/freezer, twin sinks, and premium appliances; a full-height pantry unit and additional drawer freezer reside to port.

The design team then innovated the use of angles to extend furniture lengths without intruding on lateral width. This yields a hexagon-shaped conversation pit centre stage in the saloon.

You then descend a straight staircase into a lower accommodation atrium. Forward, the VIP vee cabin has an angled queen-sized island berth but wait until you see the full-beam master cabin – it is truly palatial. A further bonus is the utility room tucked under the mezzanine cockpit, which has a bulkhead door leading to the engine room.

And speaking of the engineroom, you would have to go a long way to find a more purposeful arrangement. Fuel, all 10,000 litres of it, is divvied between two wing tanks that feed into a central tank. All of this benefits hull balance.

Running owner-specified Scania 1150s, the configuration proved particularly economical in displacement mode, sipping 2lt/nm at 6.8 knots for a range of 4370 nautical miles (8093km). At 80 per cent engine load, the S75 pulls 23 knots (42.5km/h) while drinking 13.5lt/nm – or 310lt/hr in other words.

It turns remarkably tightly for a shaftdrive hull and it will steer straight and true at any speed. Yes, the expectations are high, but the next 20 years are looking extremely bright for Maritimo if the S75 is anything to go by.
