Yamaha will Power Invictus Models


Invictus Yacht said in a statement that Yamaha outboards are now the exclusive power for several of its dayboat and runabout models.

“We are talking about sporty, confident customers who want to be recognized in a ‘muscle- flexing’ boat, parading the power of the propulsion system,” Invictus designer Christian Grande, who also has done work with Cranchi and Sessa, said in a statement.


Yamaha outboards will be available in two of the Borgia, Italy-based builder’s model lines:

• T Range: runabouts from 28 to 37 feet

• Capoforte Range: crossovers and center consoles from 19 to 27 feet

Marco Zuccola, Invictus Yacht sales manager for south Europe, said Yamaha is well-suited to meet the needs of both the yard and its clients.

“We consider Yamaha a partner of absolute reliability and prestige, with an extensive and well-organized service network and excellent products. We are sure this partnership will lead to commercial success,” Zuccola said.
