Invictus Yacht said its new 240 FX will debut in September at the Cannes Yachting Festival.

The Italian builder said the boat has an outboard-powered, high-performance hull and comes in “leisure” and “fishing” versions.

Invictus said the stern platform has an adjustable backrest that becomes a sundeck when lowered; the console includes a closeable compartment with a specially designed icebox. On-deck space has been designed to maximize usable area for stowing the accessories necessary for sport or relaxation.

New 240 FX owners will receive a shoreside storage box for fish or water skis, a rack for fishing rods or the folding awning and a folding table for the foredeck.

The “fishing” version includes, in place of the rear settee, the installation of an efficient stand-up position, complete with sink, bait box, stowage compartment for gear and a rack to hold as many as four rods.
