Italian boatbuilder Invictus Yacht has announced that its new 7.4m 240CX motoryacht will be making its world premiere at the 2017 Cannes Yachting Festival in September.

Like its larger sister, the 280CX, the Christian Grande-designed 240CX offers large interior spaces for maximum livability. Below deck is an open space with a bathroom corner where the WC folds away into a special cabinet. Guaranteeing ample storage space, a particularly large locker is located to the left of the companionway. Long twin windows in the hull increase exterior visibility and reduce the impact of the hull as an architectural barrier, says Invictus.

The steering position is vertically oriented, allowing for particularly precise steering. The heart of the day zone is located in the centre of the boat, with a stand-up driving seat that can be easily transformed into an element of the aft dining area. This transformable system is standard equipment. Protection from the sun is also included, thanks to a fold-away bimini top that covers the whole living area.

The seaworthy hull shape of the 240CX also allows for excellent control and a smooth ride, says Invictus, even in choppy seas. It can carry up to 250hp in outboard power.
