AUSTRALIAN LUXURY MOTOR YACHT BUILDER MARITIMO has unveiled the M60 flybridge motor yacht – its fifth new model in 2021, a record for the company.

At the beginning of this project, it was made clear by Maritimo founder, Bill Barry-Cotter, that “the M60 had to be a motor yacht that was truly special … and to lay the course for flybridge motor yachts of the future.” 

The M60 is styled  to visually elongate its exterior profile. The completely new deck and flybridge superstructure lines evoke a sense of balance and poise in any anchorage.

Exterior flybridge wings provide additional space within the flybridge and aft galley, as well as protection over the side decks. An important design consideration from the Maritimo design team are the proportions of deck and accommodation spaces, acting on owner’s feedback. The result is an immensity of cockpit deck, and adventure deck space with the ability to cater for a range of activities.

The M60’s 60-foot (18.53m) LOA hull is an evolution of Maritimo’s experience in long range cruising design. The variable deadrise hull has a deep keel, sharp bow entry and flattened progression aft for offshore cruising efficiency, cruising comfort and stability.

The M60 will be powered by standard twin Volvo Penta D13-800MHP power units with the option for Volvo Penta D13-1000MHP or Scania Di16 1150MHP upgrades.


Hull design and engineering are centered on straight shaft drive technology with an efficient 8-degree shaft angle to the five-blade Nibral Propellers. The low shaft angle also reduces overall draft to four feet (1.35m).

A benefit from the triple fuel tank fuel system, is that refueling can take place through a single filler from either side of the vessel.

The M60 Flybridge Motor Yacht caters to these needs of storing water toys, scuba and other gear via the aft garage lazarette. The tender garage has the ability to house a ten-foot (3.2m) dinghy or even select two jet skis when optioned with 350kg rear davit.

The defining feature of the Maritimo M-Series is its enclosed flybridge ‘skylounge’ with internal staircase.

Beyond the flybridge skylounge doors the M60 offers over 11.0 square metres of protected outdoor deck space.

The upper cockpit offers up to three separate lounges including a standard U-shaped dining area aft to comfortably seat six guests. The rear entertainment module is complete with sink, BBQ Grill, and large top loading refrigeration.

The characteristic Maritimo aft galley serves both indoor and outdoor dining areas, and connects those preparing the meal with those already dining and entertaining.


The three stateroom, two ensuite layout is designed to maximise internal hull volume provided by the 17-foot (5.2m) beam. A companionway laundry houses washing machine and dryer.

A full beam king master stateroom is located midships, where the M60’s hull’s volume is best experienced with panoramic hull windows .

Maritimo have already secured orders from customers involved within the design development, with the first boat scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2022, soon after the  Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.
