An Australian and American Company
Maritimo Yachts claim to be oceans apart, and while the company has had a rich history in building the brand, there have been some recent developments that have played negatively upon the Maritimo Yachts. Specifically, it has been shown that bankruptcy has been filed with speculation that this was done to avoid settlement in a number of lawsuits.Read More
Addressing the bankruptcy
In 2016 Maritimo Offshore PTY. LTD filed a Chapter 15 Petition with the District Court of Connecticut (case number 16-31613). The result of such a filing was a huge setback for the company, resulting in further loss of sales. The company has attempted to regain momentum and has engulfed itself in the international yachting market. The re-vamping and re-structuring of the company are yet to definitively set its status as a top brand in the industry at this time.
The new models
Part of the branding for the Maritimo Yacht brand is to showcase the quality of the design and the boats. As the major issue with the boats was due to hoses and such internal flukes, the newer models strive to exceed the industry standard in terms of construction and engineering. The yachts now offer fully molded patented engine room liners to reduce the risk of saltwater damage, walk-around decks, ergonomic dashboards, fully-enclosed four-sided flybridges, internal staircases, and upgraded materials and layouts to the interior design (such as bi-fold doors and full-beam master beds).
Maritimo yachts are available in M-Series, S-series, and X-Series. The boats within these are the Maritimo M70, M64, M59, M54, M51, S70, s59,s54, and S51. The only model available currently in the X-series is the Maritimo x60. While there are other models available from previous years, it is highly recommended that if you are purchasing such models that you use a brokerage as well as an inspector to ensure that your vessel does not have any issues with the design.
Where can you see the new Maritimo yachts?
Maritimo Yachts have been a bit dormant for the last year. It appears that the branding and company as a whole have taken the time to really build up the quality level of the brand. That being stated, the first major appearance of the yachts will be at the Miami Yacht Show in Miami Florida. It can be predicted that the company is going to participate in a number of international shows this year to build the momentum back up for the brand.
What does branding mean for potential buyers?
For potential Maritimo yacht seekers, now is a great time to purchase your yacht. Pre-owned boats are selling for around a million dollars for the 2011 models. The new models of course run a bit higher. Depending upon the size of the yacht, you may be able to find a model in the lower 800s. Buyers of pre-owned boats should ensure that documentation, warranties, and service reports for the vessel are in place prior to purchase. A broker can help you to secure all the proper documentation as well as schedule any water test and inspections that may be needed prior to the purchase.

Maritimo Yachts are making a comeback in the yachting community. The Australian-based company has opened several distribution centers in the United States, primarily in Florida.
