Following a positive 2020, Australian motor yacht manufacturer Maritimo is on track to announce and release eight new models, while also expanding its facility and workforce operations for 2021.

The first of these planned models is the highly anticipated M55 Flybridge Motor Yacht, scheduled for world release in the first half of this year and expected to be the star attraction at Maritimo’s on-water display at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in May.

The Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show will also feature the world premiere of another of Martimo’s planned models for this year: the S55 Sedan Motor Yacht.

Maritimo is also expected to announce an entirely new range of vessels, the Offshore Motor Yacht series, this year. The first of these models is currently expected to be unveiled in as early as March this year.

“This year, 2021, will mark a momentous year for Maritimo, with as many as eight new model releases or announcements,” said Brand and Design Director, Tom Barry-Cotter.


“The extensive new model rollout has been in development behind the scenes since the beginning of last year, so we are beyond excited to announce each new model over the coming months.”

Maritimo is planning more than new models, with plans to expand their workforce and develop the next generation of boatbuilding craftspeople.

“Maritimo’s apprentices are multiple award winners year after year, and the new recruits would be mentored by some of the finest and most experienced craftspeople in the industry,” said Maritimo’s Operations Director Phil Candler.

The expansion of its workforce makes sense, considering the near-record $13-million worth of new vessels the brand shipped across the world.

Maritimo aims to expand Maritimo Racing’s offshore powerboat division, with the team set for plenty of competition during the year, while also further developing its Gold Coast facilities with an advanced boat building facility and the building a state-of-the-art Maritimo Technology and Experience Centre.

“Maritimo Racing will move from its long-time adjacent headquarters into the heart of Maritimo’s facilities with a Formula-One style Technology Centre and connecting Experience Centre,”  said Barry-Cotter.

“The new Maritimo Technology Centre will be the home stable to Maritimo Racing’s world champion powerboat division, offshore sailing team and the restored 117-year-old ketch Katwinchar.”

Integrated with the Maritimo Technology and Experience Centre via an overhead observatory will be a conference centre, design studio and additional office space.

“Our uncompromising commitment to continually strive for excellence and improvement in everything we do is not something we just pay lip service to – it is the very core of our corporate ethos,” Barry-Cotter added.
