Maritimo X60 (2019-)

w/ 2 x 1000-hp Volvo D13



Brief Summary

To improve performance, Maritimo designed the X60 with the dual Volvo Penta D13 1000-hp diesel engines and tankage, forward, close to midships to create more balanced weight distributions. By doing so, Maritimo created a novel aft accommodation space accessible from the salon and swim platform deck. Maritimo offers several configurations for this space including what they dub a Beach Club, which is a convertible living space that can convert from a lower social and entertainment area to an additional stateroom.

Key Features

  • Innovative aft accommodation space
  • Hydraulic swim platform that lowers
  • Galley with island counter
  • Engines forward for more balanced weight distribution
  • Straight shafts
  • Full walkaround oblique berth in the forward stateroom
  • Full-beam master stateroom

Captain's Report

Captain’s Report by Capt. Mark Kellum

Maritimo X60

The first impression of the Maritimo X60 is that it is a conventional sport yacht. However, several design innovations make the X Series from Maritimo distinctive.

Midships engine

With the Volvo Penta diesels set near midship, the Maritimo X60 is able to get on plane with little bow rise and achieve fuel efficiencies remarkable for her size and class.

Mission

Maritimo designed and built the X60 as a luxury performance cruising yacht that achieves efficient fuel economy while being blue water capable. To contribute to that mission, the Maritimo X60 exhibits innovative features throughout. The galley, salon, and below deck accommodations provide additional livability for long distance cruising. 

Aft acommodations

By moving the Volvo Penta diesels forward, the Maritimo X60 offers an aft accommodation space that can be accessed by the swim platform or the salon via an interior stairwell.

Distinguishing Features

  • Aft accommodation space with en-suite head accessible from the salon or the swim platform.

Major Features

  • Forward Mounted, Dual Straight-Shaft Diesel Engines. For a more balanced weight distribution, the engines are mounted more forward than traditional sport yachts. The straight shafts eliminate the weight and expense of pod drives.
  • Walkaround Double Berths. Both the master and the forward stateroom offer double berths that can be walked around.
  • Guest Stateroom. There is a third stateroom with upper and lower twin berths.
  • Full Galley. The fully equipped galley is accessible from the salon and the aft deck and features an island counter with icemaker and storage.
  • Forward Sun Pad. The forward deck has side-by-side sun pads with adjustable backrests.
  • Hydraulic Swim Platform. The swim platform lowers into the water hydraulically.
  • Summer Kitchen. On the aft deck is a built-in grill, sink, and refrigerator.

Main deck layout

Main deck with aft deck, galley and salon. The helm is mounted forward on the starboard side. Forward is twin sun-pads with adjustable backrests and bench seating.

Below deck layout

Below the main deck is the accommodation spaces and mechanical space. Note the engines are mounted just behind midship.

Design

Starboard quarter cruising

With engines mounted more forward than traditional sport yachts, the Maritimo X60 has more balance weight distribution which results in a better running attitude.

By placing the engines further forward than a traditional sport yacht, Maritimo created several innovative results. Better fuel efficiencies, an aft accommodation space where the engines would typically be and a better running attitude.

Performance

Cruising

The Maritimo X60 that was tested featured dual Volvo Penta D12 1000-hp diesel engines with straight shafts.

The Maritimo X60 has a length over all of 63’9” (19.42 m), a beam of 17.1” (5.21 m), and a draft of 5’2” (1.57 m). With a dry weight of 67,240 lbs. (35,500 kg), 28-percent fuel, 24-percent fuel and eight people onboard, we had an estimated test weight of 69,805 lbs. (31,663 kg).

Top Speed. With the Volvo Penta D13 1000-hp engines running at 2460 rpm, we recorded a top speed of 33.1 knots (61.3 kph). That speed resulted in .4 nmpg, a number that remained relatively steady through all throttle settings down to 1750 rpm.

Best Cruise. Therefore, there is no best cruise, but we found the Maritimo X60 ran quite comfortably at that 1750 rpm setting and 19.8 knots (36.7 kph). At that speed, she was burning 46.2 gph which translated into a range of 437.4 nm. All while still holding back a 10% reserve of the boat’s 1,135-gal (4,300 L) total fuel capacity. 


Acceleration. In acceleration tests, she reached planing speed in an average 6.2 seconds, continued through 20 mph in 9.8 seconds, and to 30 in 14.4 seconds.

Handling

Wake hopping

The day of the sea trial the conditions were calm. To simulate sea conditions, the Maritimo X60 was run through the camera-boat’s wake. There was no pounding and the penetration was clean and presented no adverse spray.

With the weight more evenly balanced, the Maritimo X60 displayed a natural 5-degree bow high attitude that doesn’t diminish the forward view but does allow those hard chines to keep spray low and wide for a dry ride. She demonstrated a gentle 7-degree roll into turns. The Maritimo X60 offers a dry ride, thanks to her hard chines carried so far forward.

Boat Inspection

Clean lines

Exhibiting clean lines throughout its exterior, the Maritimo X60 has a contemporary style that feels undated.

Stern

The inspection starts at the stern which is where one of the most obvious benefits of moving the engines closer to midships is displayed. That is the addition of flexible aft accommodations. Maritimo offers three different configurations of this space; beach club, aft cabin or tender garage. The Maritimo X50 that was tested was configured as the standard beach club mode.

Aft transom

With the transom open, the aft accommodations can be entered from the swim platform. Access to the space is obtained by a set of stairs on the port side of the table.

Engines

Shown are the dual Volvo Penta D13 1000 diesel engines with multiple oil filters (red arrow) The Racor fuel filters mounted on the forward bulkhead along with the battery switches.

Straight Shafts. Maritimo decided to use straight shafts on the Maritimo. This is a better alternative to pods as Maritimo X60 has just as much maneuverability around the docks thanks to the bow and stern thrusters. In turn, it’s a more cost-effective solution and requires less maintenance. To the forward bulkhead are the fuel filter/water separators. 

Fuel Tanks. For better weight distribution, and therefore better performance, the fuel tanks are to the port and starboard of the main engines and sight gauges are fitted showing levels at a glance.

Generators

Aft of the main engines is the 17.5 kW generator.

Observations

The X Series signals a new generation of yachts for Maritimo, and it is a step in a progressive direction. It comes with the quality handling and ease of use that the brand is well known for. Plus, they come furnished with an upscale fit-and-finish. The series also marks some out of the box thinking with a more creative look at the aft space that would otherwise be relegated to storage. The Maritimo X60 clearly sends the message that forward thinking is evident at Maritimo, especially in the design and build.  Rather than settle for the usual, same old design and layout, this yacht represents some definite ingenuity and clever use of space that seem to be absent with some other yacht builders.
