The yacht is an alternative between the 240CX and the 280CX, the latter presented at last year’s German boat show.
Its hull is specifically designed for the sterndrive, which allows for a spacious stern platform while at anchor makes it easy to come aboard from the dock. The reclining L-shaped settee extends the sunbathing zone towards the cockpit.
The control console is vertically developed, providing precise control over the boat thanks to the ergonomics common to the entire CX range.
The heart of the living zone is set amidships with a standup driver’s seat, easily transformable to complete the stern dinette and giving another seat to those who love to enjoy their boat with friends. 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 features ample storage space. The two wide side windows ensure luminous ambient.
The Invictus 250CX can reach up to 38 knots, with a comfortable cruising speed of 25 knots.
“The Invictus 250CX is a compact synthesis of the 280CX, and includes all the elements essential to the success of her larger sister”, said Christian Grande, the designer.
“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 nor the interiors.
“The 250CX 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”.
