ILIAD Catamarans will stage the global premiere of its new ILIAD 53S at the 2023 Sanctuary Cove Boat Show from 25 – 28 May.
The new ILIAD 53S is set to be a major drawcard for visitors to the event with the first
model already sold and the sales team enjoying an extremely strong level of enquiry.
Signalling a departure from the flybridge design that distinguishes its current models, the
ILIAD 50, 62 and 75, the new 53S features a sporty sedan silhouette making it ideal for
unrestricted cruising throughout the world’s waterways.
With a comprehensively optioned model priced from USD$1.795M, the ILIAD 53S is
expected to enjoy strong demand from buyers seeking a semi-custom motor yacht that
features outstanding space, economy and performance.
The ILIAD 53S has outstanding interior living space, including a huge forward lounge, helm
station and dining for 6-8 people, and the entire area is bathed in natural light courtesy of a
large skylight that is included as standard.
Accommodation onboard is generous and beautifully designed with the master suite
encompassing an entire hull and featuring an oversized island queen bed, panoramic
windows, an expansive ensuite, and more storage and space than any other boat in its
class. The two guest cabins also enjoy an abundance of natural light courtesy of the
generous windows, and each are equipped with their own designer ensuite.
Featuring the finest European appliances, the galley is sleek and practical with its island
bench, full-size refrigerator and freezer, and well-designed storage areas.
The motor yacht boasts exceptional outdoor space for entertaining and relaxing, and the
cockpit features a bar area and dining setting for up to ten guests, barbeque, ice maker and
refrigerator, with all waste bins concealed in cleverly designed cabinetry. The tender
platform is ideal for safe sea access when swimming or diving and makes a superb
sunbathing spot when the tender is deployed.
The forward-facing bow deck lounge features generous lounge seating for enjoying a drink
at sunset and has convenient direct access into the main deck lounge.
Bulwark side walkways with handrails around the entire vessel make movement around the
decks while underway exceptionally safe.
The motor yacht on display at Sanctuary Cove is powered by 440Hp engines delivering a
top speed of 24 knots, and cruising long range at low speeds will afford more than 3,000
nautical miles. Engine options from 400-550ph are also available.
The standard model is comprehensively optioned with air conditioning, generator, full
electronics, water maker, washer/dryer, lithium batteries, solar panels, entertainment system
and much more.
The ILIAD 53S has been constructed with all the brand’s renowned DNA, including being
beachable in emergencies, a full vinylester hull, foam core throughout, exceptionally high
bridge deck clearance and premium safety features that see this new model classified in a
class of its own.
