Invictus Yacht in Italy just unveiled its new, highly styled, TT460 flagship with a large amount of livable space on deck that can be made even larger with a fold out platform from each side. The new 46-foot boat also has Invictus’ signature “half-reverse” bow and a futuristic black carbon fiber hardtop with lines that curve forward to embrace the sun lounge on the foredeck.
The TT460 is powered by twin 480-hp Volvo IPS650 pod drives, providing fuel efficiency, dynamic boat handling, and joystick control for easy docking. Built in Borgia, the boat will be launched later this summer.
The Invictus line now runs from 28 to 46 feet, and they are all designed by Christian Grande, who has won many Italian and international awards for his unconventional thinking. “The sea is not just a holiday destination or an enchanting background for a photograph,” he said. “This yacht was born from the wish to give a shape to the energy and emotions of a day on board, when time seems to stop and you feel you could be as one with sun and waves.”
The 460 can hold up to 12 people in several social areas. It has a large sun lounge with a fixed seat forward, and the dinette tables amidships, under the hardtop, can be folded back to create another sundeck.
Invictus specializes in personalization, and choices for the interior range from an open plan to a double bed in the stern and a lounge in the bow, with partitions for privacy. The company has an atelier program so owners can customize their boats’ upholstery, colors, fabrics, paint and decks.
A relative newcomer to the U.S., Invictus launched its first boat here, at GT 370, at the Miami show in February. The company was started in 2016 and has grown rapidly in the European market, because of its attention to detail and its semi-custom approach to each boat.
