Iliad 60 – Ready for blue water cruising

Iliad have already made their mark with the Iliad 50 (see test in MW169) and the prestigious 70 (see test in our Special Edition #15). The young brand is now announcing a new 60, ahead of an 80-footer. 

On board this long-distance cruiser, the emphasis has been placed on controlling fuel consumption, and this has led to increasing the range to over 3,500 miles. The Iliad 60 is therefore capable of ocean passage-making: with a bridgedeck clearance of 3’9” (1.15 m), it also reflects an architectural design optimized for comfort in the open sea. Moving around on deck is easy, as is access to the huge flybridge. Whether open or fully enclosed, the flybridge can accommodate up to ten people in luxurious comfort and has a separate galley complete with refrigerator, ice maker, grill/barbecue etc. As for the cabins, they each include large bathrooms and beautiful openings to enjoy the sea. The hull dedicated to the owner can integrate a laundry room, a workshop, an office area, or even separate crew quarters with access from the bow. Launch is scheduled for later this year.
