International debut at Cannes Yachting Festival for Invictus 280TT by Christian Grande: it’s the tender version of 280GT.
After the 280GT, that we tested already (read our sea trial report here), it was time for the open version 280TT, ideal for daily cruising or as a tender on maxiyachts. So here it is, a boat aimed to flexibility, comfort and safety, all in the best Italian style.
Invictus 280TT key points
The semi-reversed bow already found on the GT is also found here on the TT. A perimetral couch fills the bow section. Below, the space is more than expected, so it was possible to fit a heads with shower and changing space: this is a plus on a boat designed for daily cruising.
With 280TT Invictus introduced the concept of tender-yacht, because it can be used as side boat for a yacht or proper day cruiser sporting a sophisticated hull, elegant design and rich features.
The fore part of the hull is integrated with innovative fixed fenders that follow the exterior lines being functional and elegant at the same time.
The dashboard features last-gen digital instruments and is protected by a large windshield. The helm station is in the center, boasting a double ergonomic seat mounted on a cabinet. The cabinet itself is a small galley, with stove, fridge and lockers.
An ample swim platform leads to the aft sun bed that can be enlarged by rotating the backseat.
At the moment, four color patterns are available: a delicate “Vanilla Sea”, sporty “Attack Grey”, sophisticated “Dark Shadow” or classic “Personal White”.
