Following the launch of its 240 at Cannes last year, the Italian builder has unveiled a bigger sister
Following the world premiere of its 7.4m 240CX at Cannes last year, Invictus has unveiled its 250CX that weighs in as a 7.75m vessel powered by a 250hp sterndrive pushing it to a maximum speed of 36kts. Sitting between the 240 and CX280, the boat is designed like its sister models by Christian Grande.
In common with the Italian builder’s other CX range models, this vessel was conceived to concentrate lots of equipment with high level comfort and encase them all in a small space. The choice of a sterndrive, with a hull especially designed for it, allows for a spacious stern platform while a reclining L-shaped settee extends the sun bathing zone towards the cockpit. An outboard-powered option is available.
“When possible, her dimensions were made slightly more compact; here I’m thinking specifically about the resized console and the sundeck that transforms differently”
The heart of the living zone is set amidships with a stand-up 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 is an open space with a corner washroom featuring a cabinet that holds the WC when not needed, while a cabinet to the left of the stairs provides storage space.
“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 for 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”.
