Now, following the success of the 60 and 52, comes the company’s new baby grand, the 48… Bill Barry-Cotter sometimes jokes that it takes 40 years to build a Maritimo. In all seriousness, he means that it’s the culmination of his lifetime’s work - a career that’s made him Australia’s most awarded boat builder. This experience can be seen all over Bill’s new baby, the Maritimo 48, a long-range luxury cruiser with all the hallmarks of the extraordinarily successful 60 and 52 marques.

Having seen the best and worst of thousands of oceangoing vessels, Bill has picked the features he admires and added a few of his own. For example, the superb finishes, the ‘sunken’ galley and the beautifully styled timber and stainless steel stairwell have Bill’s fingerprints all over it.

At night, an illuminated handrail guides you down the companionway to your accommodation where all the attributes of the larger Maritimos are in evidence. There’s a concealed washer/dryer in the twin bunk cabin, zoned air-conditioning (as it is throughout the entire boat), large luxurious ensuites flooded with natural light and a wardrobe located under the island bed in the stateroom that ingeniously lifts up on gas struts, revealing a cavernous wardrobe area.

Yet another Bill Barry-Cotter signature feature is the Maritimo flybridge. More like a second saloon, guests seem to gravitate here not only for all the mod-cons - including wet bar and fridge – but also to fully appreciate the Maritimo’s exceptional ride, power and performance.

hallmark of Maritimo, the engine room aboard the 48 is large, uncluttered and finished to the same exacting standard of the exterior. In fact, with a structural integrity second to none and possibly the cleanest, neatest and best-protected engineering and electrical systems available, some scribes have gone as far to say that the Maritimo range is “overengineered!” But with Bill’s background, it was never going to be any other way.

A vessel that can plane effortlessly at low speeds and ride “softly” on the water will be far more frugal on fuel as a consequence. Which sums up the performance of the Maritimo range to perfection. Designed with an advanced variable deadrise planing hull, engines and fuel tanks positioned amid ships, the Maritimo 48 has superb balance and poise. Apply the power and you’ll never bury the stern, ride bow high – or use fuel inefficiently.

Living the high life on the high seas comes naturally aboard the Maritimo. The rear doors slide right open to expose the aft deck, island barbecue and swim platform access while the flybridge is like a second saloon and even has its own balcony. In fact, there are four entertaining areas – and no less than four fridges to go with them!

From the fail-safe battery arrangement that ensures the engines always start on demand to a keel which makes the hull run straight even in a following sea -the Maritimo 48 is among the safest vessels afloat. Deep walkways and exceptional visibility give you confidence when kids are aboard, while the user- friendly design and ‘turnkey’ operation make living in luxury on the water easy for as few as two people.

More efficient hull shapes, superior propeller and shaft technology, enhanced electrical and steering systems and safer fuel tankage are just some of the advances transferred from Maritimo’s Offshore Racing program to the luxury yachts. The luxury yachts are built on transverse framework in an identical manner to the race boat as against the traditional longitudinal frame employed by more traditional builders.
