The boat was designed by Christian Grande Design Works who gave it a reverse bow.
The Surfaces of the Invictus 280 GT are designed as if they were carved shapes, and impart a sensation of sturdiness that is able to withstand any kinds of abuse and the worst aggression of the sea.
The concept of sturdiness takes nothing away from the very attentive approach that has always characterized the work of the designer from Parma: the Invictus open yachts are always very attentive to every detail, from the choice of finishings to the completeness of the equipment.
Christian Grande commented:
“Invictus gave me the occasion to reinterpret a new evolution in nautical design, that I would call Nautical 2.0. This is yachting that no longer begins with small to finish with large, but that with small has its own justification and search for excellence, with products that are a real representation of the contemporary market. Yachting that gives an emotional sensation, even with a limited size, thanks to the careful balance of form and with equipment that characterize solidity, spaciousness, and comfort. Everything that one would have expected to find when aboard a large yacht is now at hand with the Invictus, with a singular and innovative design.”
When aboard the 280GT we find an ample stern bathing platform, with the engine housing covered with a sunbathing cushion that enlarges by rotating the rear backrest. The central zone hosts a comfortable L-shaped settee that faces the steering area, the latter with a solid double ergonomic seat and a midships position equipped with a galley module, complete with a refrigerator and lockers.
The bridge of the Invictus 280 GT, which also includes access to the interior, is protected by a wide sweep-around windscreen and equipped with the latest digital instrumentation, and includes a video monitor and a very useful inclinometer. The left side bulwarks are optimized for onboard movements and equipped with a spacious stowage space that can also be customized by the owner in several versions, including housing for a set of matching accessories. The bow zone, suited for sunbathing, is quite large and designed for total ease of use and covers the forward portion of the ample cabin, which is almost a small suite.
The Invictus 280 GT is 8,90 meters long, with a beam of 2,84 meters, and comes equipped with a Volvo 5.7 V8 sterndrive (max 320hp/240kw), capable of providing a top speed of 38 knots. The 280GT can carry up to eight passengers and comes with a large cabin and separate bath and external galley module, with all the extras. At present four color schemes are available: the delicate “Vanilla Sea”, the more aggressive “Attack Grey”, the elegant “Dark Wood”, and the classic “Personal White”. The 280GT, like all the vessels of this series, can be customized both with accessories and equipment.
