The very latest in the revolutionary X series of sport yachts from Australia's leading luxury motoryacht manufacturer, Maritimo, the X50, has its world premiere at the 2019 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show today.

And already the vessel has been an international success with multiple sales recorded around the globe, mirroring the international roll out of its larger sibling the X60 which was unveiled at last year's Sanctuary Cove show.

The X50, with its unique aft cabin accommodation options, will follow Sanctuary Cove with exhibitions throughout Australia, New Zealand and North America in the remainder of 2019.

The latest addition to the revolutionary X-Series line will look to add to what has been one of the most successful product launches in Maritimo's history, following the astounding international response to the release of the X60 last May.

The X60 drew international acclaim in 2018 as one of the most exciting advances in the sport yacht sector thanks to the model's innovative design features coupled with the brand's trusted performance and ocean going comfort.

X-Series lead designer Tom Barry-Cotter said the X-series was revolutionary in the sector and made a strong statement that Maritimo is a united team committed to further establishing itself as industry leaders in design and performance.

From its race infused bloodline, the X50's powerful exterior form blankets an innovative web of simplistic and functional arrangements integrated with advanced design features that set it apart from competitors.

The new X50 features a customizable aft accommodation space that increases the size of living spaces in the forward accommodation and neutrally balances the hull for enhanced performance, fuel economy and ride comfort.

Accessible from both saloon and swim platform deck, the aft accommodation space features a standard beach club cabin with ensuite.

The area has been perfected for use as an entertainment and watersports hub, with the added ability to convert to guest stateroom via a standard folding double bed integrated into the rear bar.

Versatility designed into the X50's aft accommodation space also enables this area to be optioned and utilised as a twin single stateroom with ensuite or 3.2 metre tender garage.

Advantages achieved through the X50's innovative accommodation design are not limited to just unique versatile spaces, but also integrate critical balance and performance characteristics via the neutral positioning of engines and mass whilst optimising drive shaft angle.

"The simplicity of our shaft driven design is a foundational hallmark of our brand's toughness and reliability," said Barry-Cotter.

"As world leaders in shaft driven performance, the X50 is designed and constructed to meet expectations of delivering class leading fuel economy, range, high speed cruise and ocean going comfort that we are recognised for."

The X50 design team has gone further than ever in the analysis of waterflow over the hull. All underwater components have been analysed and designed with an obsessive consideration of drag reduction, creating as efficient a hull as possible.

In addition to the X-Series' aft accommodation features and options, the new X50 includes two expansive staterooms and ensuites in the forward accommodation spaces.

The full beam master stateroom with queen bed (king optional), desk, day bed, drawer unit, full height hanging locker and panoramic hull windows, is enhanced in size due to the space acquired with the guest accommodations relocating aft when compared with traditional arrangements.

The forward stateroom design features an innovative offset queen bed with connecting ensuite. The offset bed design maximises available floor space, enabling easier access around and into bed.

Integrated hull side windows inject panoramic vistas into each cabin and there are through hull portlights for further ventilation.

The saloon design incorporates optional sliding vista windows that flank each side of the hard top letting in an abundance of light and air. An optional galley positioned sunroof provides even more light and ventilation.

The automotive inspired dashboard and helm is ergonomically designed for both comfort and control. Maritimo Racing function and equipment interface experience is inbuilt at every level.

Barry-Cotter said the signature large Maritimo family galley design was incorporated into the rear of the saloon, with upright fridge freezer, dish washer, cooktop, convection microwave, full height pull-out pantry, island bench, and various cupboards and drawers.

The vast cockpit space features heavy weather bi-fold cockpit-saloon doors, rear euro seating, and starboard side entertainment unit. Protective walk around decks connect the cockpit with the forward deck entertainment area, featuring sun lounge bed and lift up backrests.

The highly anticipated X50 world premiere forms the centerpiece of Maritimo's on water display at Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.

The X50 is priced at AUD$1,440,000 including standard beach club aft accommodation.
