Invictus to debut two models at Cannes
Cannes Yachting Festival 2021 will see the debut of two new Invictus Yacht models, the SX200 and TT460. The Italian yard is planning to exhibit seven hulls at the show planned for September 7th-12th in Cannes, southern France.
The new SX200 is the first in the Capoforte collection, that includes superyacht tender-style models from 19 to 28ft (xm). Versatility is the top priority with the SX200, said Invictus. The bow and stern areas can be used as sundecks or lounges, either separately or configured as a single large space. The layout with an off-centre console gives direct passage between bow and stern, leaving space for a grill.
The SX200 has a 150 horsepower outboard engine which takes the boat to over 30 knots, with 20 knots the best option for fuel-efficient cruising.
The new TT460 is equipped with two Volvo Penta IPS 650 engines. “The sea is not just a holiday destination or an enchanting background for a photograph – it is a way of life,” says Christian Grande, Invictus Yachts designer. “This yacht was born from the wish to give a shape to the energy and emotions of a day on board, when time seems to stop and you feel you could be as one with sun and waves. All this can be done without sacrificing style and that truly Italian elegance that adds value to any experience.”
The deck, which includes a perimeter walkway, has a large sundeck in the bow with a flush-seat at the edge. Amidships, the dinette tables can be folded back to make room for a second sundeck. In the same position, the topsides can be equipped with two foldable platforms, which increase the liveable space aboard. Teak wood can be laid on the stern swim platform and on the whole deck. A hydraulic moving device can be added to help swimmers climb back aboard and to manage the tender, which is an unusual feature on this type of yacht.
“Personalisation” is the keyword when focusing on finishes and details, said Invictus. There are a range of colours and types of upholstery to choose from the Atelier Invictus. The atelier also offers its customers a network of specialised craftsmen and suppliers. Customers are kept in the loop from the early stages of purchase and guided through a virtual laboratory, in which the yacht or boat is designed.
