Leading Australian luxury motor yacht manufacturer, Maritimo, is excited to display the extremely popular M55 and S55 models and the 2022 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Introduced exactly a year ago to the American market, both of these models continue to enjoy success as the most successful Global Launches ever for Maritimo.

Both models are proof-positive of Maritimo’s dedication to taking cruising motor yacht design to the next level by delivering innovation, maximizing interior volume, and redefining the luxury long-distance cruiser.

“The excitement and interest in these new models on display continues to carry over from the launch at last year’s record Ft. Lauderdale show,” says Dave Northrop, Maritimo President of the Americas. “And it’s been exciting to deliver several of these yachts to their new owners over the past 12 months.”


The M55 on display at the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show is the first Maritimo to be delivered into the Americas with Scania’s 900-horsepower DI 13 diesels. This powerful, Tier III compliant package features a common rail system which results in low exhaust emissions with good fuel economy along with a high torque. The robust construction, strong service network, and proven commercial reliability will complement Maritimo’s established mission of delivering efficient, performance cruisers designed to go the distance.

Maritimo’s relentless pursuit of perfection and attention to design detail continues as construction of the M75 and S75 is moving ahead at full speed at Maritimo’s Australia-based production factory. The state-of-the-art facilities were purposely designed to give Maritimo the capability of manufacturing larger vessels, such as the M75 and S75.

Managing Director Tom Barry-Cotter said the all-new M75 has stemmed from the most in-depth design and development process ever undertaken in Maritimo history, with it being conceptualized and developed with Maritimo’s design division and collaborating owners for more than two years. Construction progress and updates will be shared during the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Prospective M75 buyers will also be able to meet with their respective sales representative and review in-depth how the model is progressing. The builder will work with each customer to ensure that their M75 reflects their personal tastes and experiences.

“The M75 and S75 were amongst a lineup of eight new models to be globally revealed or launched by Maritimo last year,” says Barry-Cotter.

In addition to the arrival of the first M75 in North America in 2023, customers will also be able to experience the new M60, S60, and M600 Offshore in U.S waters.

“I was wondering how we were going to top the introduction of the M55 and S55 in 2021, and then I got to spend time on these three models while in Australia,” says Northrop. “I can’t wait till their introduction in the U.S in 2023. I know buyers in this part of the world will instantly recognize that these new models are also best in class. There is simply nothing like them on the market today.”

Maritimo’s passionate craftspeople and staff are all extremely excited to spend time with Maritimo owners and potential customers at the 2022 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Our Maritimo experience is certainly wrapped up in the new M75 . We will go further afield as there is heaps of fuel on board, and the modern aesthetic is wonderful. We love what Maritimo has done with all of the spaces on board.
