Invictus CX250, oversized space and extra comfort in less than 8 meters
Tuesday, November 20, 2018 11:08 AM
The Invictus CX250 is a sterndrive model designed by Christian Grande and able to offer incredibly comfortable living space in only 7.75 meters of length, perfectly placed as an ideal alternative between the CX240 and the CX280.
“The Invictus CX250 is a compact synthesis of the CX280, and includes all the elements essential to the success of her larger sister”, affirmed Christian Grande. “When possible, her dimensions were made slightly more compact; here I’m thinking specifically about the resized console and the sundeck that transforms differently. However we have not changed the ergonomics nor the interiors. The CX250 demonstrates the strategic capacity of the yard to handle production in a semi-industrial manner, unifying certain elements to be able to use the same components and the same finishings on models of differing dimensions”.
Invictus CX250 – 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 Lshaped 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 CX250 up to a top speed of 36 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.
