Maritimo M73 Cruising Motoryacht Description
As Maritimo's flagship, the M73 dwarfs it's smaller siblings in every way, providing an unmatched level of space, luxury and capability. Pulling into an anchorage will draw attention as the M73 is designed to impress even the most critical eyes. It's the largest cruiser ever built in Australia and as such is decked out in the best Maritimo has to offer. LED lighting, Bose sound systems, flat-screen TVs and plenty of glass windows and teak wood make the living quarters on this yacht a beautiful home away from home. Powerful engines coupled with sophisticated controls make cruising or docking an easy pleasure. Maritimo has made the M73 a work of art capable of long voyages in luxurious accommodations, which is what you would expect from a flagship.
An imposing figure on the horizon, the M73 is large where is counts with spacious cabins, an extended swim platform and a functionally large engine room. It is possible to cruise with extended family and not feel cramped with the four cabin/three-bathroom layout. The owners stateroom features a king sized bed, a vanity, entertainment system and walk-in closet. Large storage spaces are integrated beneath all of the berths illustrating Maritimo's commitment to utilizing every square inch. When not sleeping, owners and guests can relax in the large saloon with modular seating, a generously equipped galley and all of the modern appliances needed to feel at home.
Large wrap-around decks provide safe passage around the yacht, and the huge fly bridge is a like a boat all it's own at 38 feet long. An optional sunroof provides natural light and the extended bridge deck is large enough to be a great lunch spot, with room for a table and chairs. It's the small details that make a luxury yacht, and Maritimo has spared no expense. Underwater lights provide a nice evening swimming spot back aft, whereas 160 LED lights provide soft lighting inside. You'll notice the small things like a built-in barbeque, twin water pumps, a backup generator and the liberal use of materials like glass teak and metal replacing plastic or faux wood.
Underneath the decks is a yacht designed to ride well in heavy seas and take your breathe away with every push of the throttle. Standard twin Caterpiller C32 engines provide over three thousand horsepower, but they can be optionally upgraded to offer a staggering 3750 horsepower. A propeller shaft angle of only nine degrees makes for efficient use of the M73's power, and the variable dead rise planning hull gives a comfortable ride. Within twenty seconds of pushing the throttle the M73 can reach a cruising speed of 30 knots, and it has a top speed of 34 knots.
Sitting at the helm of the M73 will take your breath away. Sheer size notwithstanding this flagship is decked out in spades, with everything to make it seem like a luxurious hotel at sea. Long cruises are not only possible but encouraged by the engineering care taken with the engine room. There is a lot of redundancy in case systems fail, and the large fuel and water capacity make living at sea for weeks an easy possibility. Whether you are partying in Monte Carlo or cruising the Bahamas the M73 is perfectly suited with luxury accommodations, comfortable cruising and power to spare. Look no further than Maritimo's flagship for the best on the water.
