Italian boatbuilder Invictus has announced that is new Cristian Grande designed Invictus 280TT superyacht tender is set to debut at Cannes Yachting Festival in September.

The new model is the tender version of the company’s bestselling 280GT model. The TT series has been designed for flexibility, comfort and safety.

With 8.9m LOA and 2.84m beam, Invictus 280TT has the same semi-reverse bow found on the GT Series, and is complete with an ample U-shaped settee that runs along both sides of the bow section.

The space below deck is possible thanks to the choice of the bow layout and the design of the area. This also allows the model to carry a bathroom with shower and dressing room in a single comfortable space.

Invictus wanted to offer more with the concept of the tender yacht, so that with the 280TT owners can choose whether to use her as a support boat or as a true yacht for day cruises.

Other innovative features of this model include a forward hull section with permanent fenders that blend in and follow the sweep of the hull, shaped to allow freedom of manoeuvring and to be pleasing to the eye.

The dashboard is fitted with the latest digital instruments and incorporates the passageway to the cabin, completely surrounded by an ample windscreen. The helm is located amidships and is equipped with a twin ergonomic seat, mounted on the forward portion of the central housing.

The housing comes with a stovetop, refrigerator and cabinets – a small open-air kitchen.

The bathing platform is large and the after section of the boat covers the engine with an ample sunbathing cushion that can be enlarged by rotating the backrest.

The 280TT model carries up to eight passengers and is equipped with a Volvo 5.7 V8 inboard-outboard (max 320hp/240kw) giving her a maximum speed of 38 knots. She is available in four colour schemes and is completely customizable.

Headquartered in Borgia, Invictus Yachts produces boats ranging 6m-9m for its GT, FX and TT series.
