– Invictus GT280S and TT460 for the very first time at a US boat show
– Also the Invictus GT370 will be on display at Miami International Boat Show
The sporty GT280S
The Invictus GT280S, that made its World debut at 2021 Cannes Yachting Festival, is the outboard configuration of one of most successful models made by the Italian shipyard. With its two outboard engines totalling 500hp, this highly liveable boat with the characteristic reverse bow delivers excellent performance.
The bridge, which also includes access to the interior, is protected by a wide sweep-around windscreen and equipped with the latest digital instrumentation, and includes a video monitor and a very useful inclinometer. The left side bulwark is optimized for onboard movements and equipped with a spacious stowage space that can also be customized by the owner in several versions, including housing for a set of matching accessories. The bow zone, suited for sunbathing, is quite large and designed for total ease of use and covers the forward portion of the ample cabin, which is almost a small suite.
The flagship TT460
The taut, essential lines are typical of Invictus hulls, in which style and attention to performance are combined: the TT460 is equipped with two Volvo Penta IPS 650 engines.
The characterizing element of the Invictus TT460 is the elegant style of the windscreen, from the bow to amidships, which blends seamlessly with the carbon hardtop and further enhances the impressive mass of this yacht.
The deck, which includes a comfortable walkway on its perimeter, has a large sundeck in the bow with a flush-seat at the edge. Amidships, the dinette tables can be folded back to make room for a second sundeck, shaded by the hardtop. In the same position, the topsides can be equipped with two foldable platforms, which increase the liveable space aboard.
Teak wood can be laid on the stern swim platform and on the whole deck. A hydraulic moving device can be added to help swimmers climb back aboard and to manage the tender, which is an unusual feature on this type of yacht.
Invictus Yachts has given owners plenty of opportunities to customize the interiors, ranging from an open-space solution with a transformable double bed in the stern and a lounge area in the bow, to the inclusion of partitions to divide areas and increase privacy.
The successful GT370
After the success achieved in 2020 with its US debut, the Invictus GT370 returns to the Miami International Boat Show. The characteristic reverse bow, the lateral windows integrated into the hull and the widespread quality detailing that is typical of the brand take on a new dimension with the GT 370 and are dedicated to the owners who want to take the next step up in the world of Invictus.
Ever more spacious and comfortable she hosts two large cabins belowdecks that can be personalized based on the needs of the owner: the ample stern cabin comes with two single beds that can be brought together as one, hosting three children or two adults with comfort to spare; the bow cabin can be set up with a third berth or, if the owner so chooses, with a long settee and matching table to one side, with a corner bar and television, creating a comfortable and scenographic living area.
This dual configuration was conceived to satisfy the widest target possible, including the elite Invictus target, and reminds us that the vessel can be used as a mega-yacht tender, or for luxurious waterfront villas or for short cruises, guaranteeing the owner the most space possible, especially when comparing the GT to other offerings in the same market segment.
The single lateral windows are unique, not only for their increased size, but also for their dual level and for the noteworthy material nature of the inset, enhancing the Invictus tradition of elegant shapes sculpted right into the material.
As mentioned, the larger size has allowed more freedom to design the deck layout and equipment: the helm and navigation station, fitted out with three oversized and enveloping chairs for the driver’s comfort and two others, just to begin with. Of special interest is the opening side platform to port that not only increases the vessel’s fascination and available space, but actually increases freedom of movement and the facilitates cockpit use when on board.
