De­mand driven by Mar­itimo’s new X-se­ries sports yachts and de­sign up­grades to the M-se­ries Fly­bridge Mo­tor Yacht range re­sulted in more than $10 mil­lion in con­tracts at the Auck­land On Wa­ter Boat Show.

The X60 Sport Yacht, which pre­miered in May, and the X50 Sport Yacht, sched­uled for world pre­miere in 2019, were the high­lights of the Mar­itimo dis­play, with both mod­els gen­er­at­ing mul­ti­ple sales.

Mar­itimo’s lead de­signer, Tom Barry-cot­ter, says the X50 is prov­ing pop­u­lar for its spa­ces and op­tions, made pos­si­ble by the X-se­ries aft cabin de­sign.

The X60 fea­tured at Auck­land had trav­elled from Aus­tralia to New Zealand un­der its own power, a less ex­pen­sive and more ex­cit­ing de­liv­ery op­tion than the more usual ship­ping de­liv­ery.

“See­ing a Mar­itimo com­plete a voy­age like that builds con­fi­dence in the brand and is a clear demon­stra­tion of the sea-wor­thi­ness of our ves­sels,” says Barry-cot­ter.

The Auck­land sales fol­low highly suc­cess­ful sales re­sults at the Syd­ney and Sanc­tu­ary Cove boat shows ear­lier in the year. www.mar­
