That galley has a full-size, 6-foot-tall refrigerator, which will help out on longer cruises. (Aussies aren’t known for going on short jaunts, these boats were built for the long haul.) To that end, we must discuss the X60’s performance. Often, with a boat this stylish and creature-comfort-centric, performance becomes an afterthought. Not so in this case. The Maritimo’s convex hull was exceedingly dry, even in the four-to-five-foot seas that we encountered outside the harbor. Her landings were soft and true even off the largest swells. She got on plane quickly at 13 knots and cruised at 31 knots burning 79.2 gallons per hour. Her ride was also remarkably well balanced, there was no hole to speak of, and even hardover there was very little heel. Maritimo owes these qualities to its racing heritage, where balance is the secret ingredient to speed.
