ILIAD 53F Nominated for Multihull of the Year Award

ILIAD Catamarans continues to impress the international marine industry with its ILIAD 53F power catamaran nominated for the prestigious 2024 Multihull of the Year awards.

The nomination was announced by Multihulls World at the opening of the Miami International Boat Show where ILIAD Catamarans is staging its US premiere with the ILIAD 53F on display.

This impressive model – the flybridge version of the shipyard’s 53 Series – was recognised by the awards committee for its outstanding range, exceptional quality of craftsmanship and extraordinary volume.

The ILIAD 53F features one of the highest bridge deck clearances in its market segment, with a high freeboard to provide comfortable passage in challenging conditions.

Powered by 440hp Volvo or Yanmar engines (Cummins optional), the motor yacht delivers a top speed of 21 knots (lightship), while cruising long range at low speeds will afford more than 2,500 nautical miles.

The catamaran’s interior living space is unprecedented and comprises an expansive forward lounge, helm station (optional) and dining for 6-8 people. Accommodation onboard is generous and beautifully designed with the master suite encompassing an entire hull and featuring an oversized island queen bed, panoramic windows and spacious ensuite.

Fitted with the finest European appliances, the galley is sleek and practical with its island bench, full-size refrigerator and freezer, and well-designed storage.

The ILIAD 53F boasts exceptional outdoor space for entertaining and relaxing, and the cockpit features a bar area and dining setting for up to ten guests. The flybridge sets a new reference in use of space, features and comfort. The optional tender platform is ideal for safe sea access when swimming or diving and makes a superb sunbathing spot when the tender is deployed.

The shipyard has enjoyed overwhelming interest from the US market in its long-range luxury power catamarans and is expected to draw strong crowds to view the ILIAD 53F at its display on Dock B at One Herald Plaza for the Miami International Boat Show from 14 – 18 February.

The ILIAD 53F is already enjoying strong popularity in the Asia Pacific region with several of the 53 Series models sold, including the ILIAD 53S sedan version. The ILIAD 53E Hybrid Electric version was also announced in late 2023, offering buyers a superb solution for sustainable cruising. In addition to the ILIAD 53 Series, the shipyard’s range also comprises the ILIAD 62 and the recently unveiled ILIAD 75 flagship model.

The ILIAD 53F will also be on display with The Yacht Sales Co at the 2024 Sydney International Boat Show and the 2024 Sanctuary Cove Boat Show from 23 – 26 May.
