Bill Barry-Cotter, the founder of Maritimo, is also the chief designer. He and his team packed an awful lot of volume into this relatively small package. Placing the engines very near the transom, which is one of the benefits of the Volvo IPS, may have aided the design, but the results exceeded this simple expediency. Regard the master stateroom: Located amidships, it spans the yacht’s full beam and seemed cavernous when I entered. Multiple levels and the queen-size berth at a jaunty angle from the port side contributed to the feeling, but the big portlights in the topsides were my favorite elements. I could have spent hours watching the water rush by. Natural light flooding the stateroom and highlighting the neutral tones of the carpet and upholstery nearly made going topside redundant.
