The spectacular C60 Sports Cabriolet would look very much at home in any of the glamorous European ports along the Mediterranean coast. And its long list of luxury appointments make it ideal for Australia's love of sun and sea. From the sleek hardtop with its electronic sliding glass sun-roof right down to the hydraulic transom garage door near the waterline - features that must be seen to be believed. The unique design elements that have become synonymous with Maritimo's craftsmanship have all been incorporated in the C60 Sports Cabriolet. To take in the view, saloon seating is lofted and positioned forward. Driving and docking is made easy thanks to 360 degree visibility at the helm. And with the galley, bar and saloon all on one level, nobody gets left out of the conversation when you're entertaining. At a cruising speed of 22 knots*, there isn't a luxury motoryacht afloat that compares to the C60 for performance or fuel efficiency. And when it comes to enjoying the experience, you get spoilt for choice both indoors and out. The plush, climate-controlled interior is the essence of luxury whether you're partying upstairs or relaxing in the four-cabin, two bathroom layout below. Outdoors, a sleek hardtop extends over the cockpit to create the perfect spot for alfresco dining near the island barbecue, while Maritimo's trademark walk-around decks provide easy access to a unique foredeck sun lounge. It's one thing to look great tied up at the dock, but it's at sea that a C55's true value is revealed. That's when you discover how much the vessel's 'ride' contributes to the sheer pleasure of cruising. Designed with an advanced variable deadrise hull, the Maritimo's engines are mounted forward to provide better weight distribution and a more efficient prop shaft angle of just 7 degrees. The sense of poise and balance this brings not only enhances performance, it also provides superior safety and exceptional fuel efficiency. So while others cling to the security of the shoreline, the C60 provides confidence for real long-range enjoyment. A hallmark of Maritimo, the engine room aboard the C60 is finished to the same exacting standard as the rest of the vessel. Acknowledged as one of the roomiest on any boat, you can practically walk around the big twin engines and appreciate what are arguably the cleanest, neatest and best-protected engineering and electrical systems available. The fuel tank sight gauges are a reminder of genuine long-range capacity while another differentiating feature is three battery banks, one for each engine and one for the house.
