Sail-World.com : Definitely worth waiting for

Definitely worth waiting for

'From any angle, Maritimo’s Aegean 60 ’oozes’ style and flair. - Aegean 60'       Click Here to view large photo

Maritimo’s latest creation, the stunning Aegean 60, was to be the company’s much anticipated World Release at the recent Sydney International Boat Show.

Sadly, it didn’t happen.

The reason for its non-appearance is easy to discover – its creator, Bill Barry-Cotter is, as most people, particularly Maritimo owners, are well aware, is an absolute perfectionist.

Nothing leaves the Maritimo yard unless every detail meets Barry-Cotter’s expectations.

So it was with the Aegean 60, but the wait is nearly over and the stylish new vessel is only a week or two from its unveiling.

Believe it or not, three have already been sold.

The Aegean 60 (the A60 for short) is essentially the incredibly successful Cabriolet 60 (or C60) with a smoothly stylised flying bridge added to its superstructure.

Hull, engines, accommodation, fuel and water capacity, everything is identical to the Cabriolet 60 except for the open flying bridge.

Surprisingly, despite the fact that three sales have been confirmed prior to hull #1 being launched, Maritimo sales and marketing manager, Peter Jenkins, believes the C60 version will outsell the A60.

'At this stage, I predict seven sales out of 10 will favour the C60,' he said.

The Aegean 60 boasts a length overall of 18.8-metres (61’7') with a spacious 5.3-metre (17’4') beam.

She carries 5600-litres (1480 gallons) of fuel, 800-litres (210 gallons) of freshwater and has a holding tank capacity of 300-litres (80 gallons).

The vessel tips the scales at 27-tonnes.

As is the case with the C60, the A60 accommodations are simply superb.

The master stateroom, situated amidships, is an absolute highlight, spacious and luxurious and boasting a gorgeous en-suite.

Another double stateroom is forward with two other cabins featuring upper and lower berths on each side.

The main saloon is beautifully done, offering unobstructed all-round vision, custom furnishings and upholstery, sheer class, all the way.

Standard power for the boat is provided by dual Caterpillar C12 diesels, each delivering 715 horsepower and giving the A60 a fuel efficient 25 knots-plus cruising speed.

The flying bridge is open, though no doubt someone may seek to add a soft top for added protection.

Appearance, of course, is a matter of opinion, but the A60 to my mind looks startlingly modern, highly stylish and with its identical hull maintains the overall profile and performance already proven by the C60.

In conclusion, I guess it’s just a case of ‘Bill Barry-Cotter strikes again.’
