Invictus Yacht 250CX world premier at Boot Dusseldorf 2018
Monday, November 6, 2017 12:18 PM
Invictus Yacht continues to widen their gamma and is preparing the official public debut of the new 250CX, a sterndrive that offers incredibly comfortable living space in only 7.75 meters of length, perfectly placed as an ideal alternative between the 240CX and the 280CX, the latter presented at last year’s German boat show.
INVICTUS 250CX A CONCENTRATE OF EQUIPEMENT AND COMFORT
In common with the other CX range models, this vessel was conceived to concentrate lots of equipment with high level comfort and encase them all in a little space. The choice of a sterndrive, with a hull especially designed for it, allows for a spacious stern platform that excels in comfort while at anchor and at the same time makes it easy to come aboard from the dock. The reclining L-shaped settee extends the sun bathing zone towards the cockpit.
The control console is vertically developed, providing very precise control over the boat thanks to the carefully studied ergonomics common to the entire CX range. The heart of the living zone is set amidships with a standup driver’s seat, easily transformable to complete the stern dinette and giving another seat to those who love to enjoy their boat with friends. This is standard equipment. Protection from the midday sun comes from the retractable awning that opens over the entire living area.
Below deck we have an open space with a corner washroom featuring a cabinet that holds the WC when not needed, while a very roomy cabinet to the left of the stairs guarantees ample storage space. These are all featured in a luminous ambient, thanks to two wide side windows that increase the perceptions coming from outside and reduce the effect of the hull as an architectural barrier.
You must not be distracted by the beauty of the finishings and fine detailing from the noteworthy seakeeping qualities of the hull, always easily driven and smooth riding even in rough water, able to carry up to 250hp outboards.
The sterndrive option also throws out 250hp, driving the Invictus 250CX up to a top speed of 38 knots, with a comfortable cruising speed of 25 knots.
A SPORTING GAMMA WITH EXCELLENT LIVING SPACE
The CX line has several of the characteristics common to the rest of the “X” range, especially regarding the setup of the driver’s console with it’s vertical development, allowing for especially precise control at the helm thanks to excellent ergonomics.
This range, as in all the ranges at the yard, is designed by Christian Grande, the perfect symbol of Italian styling as incarnated at Invictus Yacht. Interior space is much larger than that offered by the competition on boats of this length, yet she maintains her sportive lines thanks to the balance between the hull design and the profile of the deckhouse. Considerable attention has also been paid the workmanship going into the detailing and finishings, including choice of materials and chromatic variations.
INVICTUS 200FX – THE BIG LITTLE BOAT
The German boat show will host the first showing in Germany of the Invictus 200FX. Only 6.1 meters long, it shines with all the brand’s character and authoritative styling. A jewel with top-level livability and equipment, created for the owner who is looking for a boat with a strong identity that will provide him with safety and performance, without excluding comfort and luxury.
The refined keel was designed for speed and has resulted in an incredible sea-kindly and safe handling hull. The 200FX is a step ahead for those who want to become a part of the Invictus world, as even this small size manages to contain everything that a tasteful lover of contemporary design could desire and show off with satisfaction.
This boat’s reduced size with stylistic elements that bring to mind much larger vessels. A perfect example: an abundant use of three-dimensional fabrics and the colored console, in key with the hull color – this chromatic composition is embellished by leather skins that stretch from the windshield to the back of the foredeck settee. These elements interact and represent an essential stylistic element.
TWO FURTHER MODELS ON SHOW
After the official launch of the new Invictus 250CX and the German unveiling of the 200FX, Boot Dusseldorf 2018 (20-28 January) will also be the scene for two other models from the Italian yard, the 280 GT and the 280CX.
