Italian boatbuilder Invictus Yacht has announced that the 7.75m 250CX sterndrive will be making its world debut at the 2018 Düsseldorf boat show in January. The 280GT and the 280CX models will also be on display at the Invictus stand.
In common with other CX range models, the 250CX was conceived to carry lots of equipment with high level comfort and encase them all in a little space. The choice of a sterndrive, with a hull especially designed for it, allows for a spacious stern platform that excels in comfort while at anchor and at the same time makes it easy to come aboard from the dock. The reclining L-shaped settee extends the sun bathing zone towards the cockpit.
The control console is vertically developed, providing precise control over the boat thanks to the carefully studied ergonomics common to the entire CX range. 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 there is an open space with a corner washroom featuring a cabinet that holds the WC when not needed, while a very roomy cabinet to the left of the stairs guarantees ample storage space. These are all featured in a luminous ambient, thanks to two wide side windows that increase the perceptions coming from outside and reduce the effect of the hull as an architectural barrier.
With 250hp sterdrives, the Invictus 250CX has a top speed of 38kt and a cruising speed of 25kt.
