ILIAD  CATAMARANS has announced its latest model, the ILIAD 53S.

Signalling a departure from the ILIAD’s usual flybridge design, the new 53S features a sedan silhouette.

With comprehensively-optioned models priced from USD$1.76M, the ILIAD 53S is  expected to enjoy strong demand from buyers seeking semi-custom motor yachts.

The ILIAD 53S has outstanding interior living space, including a huge forward lounge, helm  station and dining for 6-8 people. The entire area is bathed in natural light courtesy of a  large skylight.

Accommodation onboard is generous, with the master suite  encompassing an entire hull and featuring an island queen bed, panoramic  windows, an expansive ensuite. The two guest cabins also enjoy an abundance of natural light courtesy of the  generous windows, and each are equipped with their own ensuites.

Featuring the finest European appliances, the galley practical with its island  bench, full-size refrigerator and freezer, and well-designed storage.


The ILIAD 53S boasts exceptional outdoor space for entertaining and relaxing, and the  cockpit features a bar area and dining setting for up to ten guests, barbeque, ice maker and  refrigerator, with all waste bins concealed in cleverly designed cabinetry. The optional  tender platform is ideal for safe sea access when swimming or diving and makes a superb  sunbathing spot when the tender is deployed.

The forward-facing bow deck lounge features generous lounge seating for enjoying a drink  at sunset and has direct access into the main deck lounge.

Bulwark side walkways with handrails around the entire vessel make movement around the  decks while underway exceptionally safe.

The  ILIAD 53S is powered by 440hp Volvo or Yanmar (recommended) engines delivering  a top speed of 24 knots, and cruising long range at low speeds will afford more than 3,000  nautical miles.

The standard model is comprehensively optioned with air conditioning, generator, full  electronics, bow thruster, 521L of fridge/freezer space, washer/dryer, lithium batteries,  5000w inverter, solar panels, entertainment system and much more.

The ILIAD 53S has been constructed to be beachable in emergencies, with a full vinylester hull, Diab foam core throughout, high bridge deck clearance and exceptional safety features.

ILIAD Catamarans continues to make its mark on the motor yacht scene with the upcoming  ILIAD 62, due for release in Australia in mid 2022, recently nominated for the prestigious  Multihull of the Year award in the MultiYacht category.


ILIAD Catamarans now has forward orders stretching into 2024 and is finalising plans to  open a new state-of-the-art shipyard to facilitate increased production across its range.
