Gruppo Fipa Launches Innovative Maiora 35 Exuma

By George Bains

Gruppo Fipa has unveiled the latest superyacht model from its Maiora brand, the 35 Exuma. The impressive 35.10m superyacht has been built for a repeat client of the shipyard, and is due to finish the summer season in the Mediterranean before heading to the Bahamas.

Her ultra-contemporary exterior design is as striking as it is timeless. Huge deck spaces offer ample opportunity for guests to enjoy days basking in the sun, and an extensive use of glass ensures that the interiors are connected to the outdoor environment. For those looking to add some thrill to their adventure, Maiora 35 packs a punch. She can reach a top speed of 35 knots in an efficient and comfortable manner, while the yacht can cruise at 30 knots.

Maiora 35 Exuma incorporates all needs of a modern owner into her design, notably in her open and flowing interior spaces brightened by natural light. Offering smooth cruising and total privacy, she has risen to the challenging brief laid out an experienced Owner with a genuine passion for the sea. With this in mind, the flybridge has been designed with both a private helm station and a beautifully sized saloon to offer the Owner a place to relax and detach by engrossing in the surroundings. Huge lowerable windows and a disappearing stern door make the space an ideal setting for golden hour cocktails and hosting dinner parties under the stars thanks to a sliding ‘moon-roof’.

The elegant interior styling matches the graceful exterior profile of the yacht. Much of the material selected have been chosen to fit the individual taste of the Owner. Wengè, walnut and oak wood meet with their different shades to create an incisive and intense contrast. A sophisticated atmosphere is enhanced by the use of a glossy grey and black laquer in the galley. A slate cellar at the entrance to the spacious main salon provides an intriguing and unique centrepiece to the design, and is well stocked with the Owner’s personal tequila collection.

Founder and President of Gruppo Fipa, Francesco Guidetti, was full of praise for both his shipyard’s efforts in developing to meet this client demand. “With the new Maiora 35 Exuma, we upgraded to another level of motor yachts, conceived for expert shipowners and for their own specific requests,” explained Guidetti. “The high windows, combined with low furniture, allow the guests to enjoy a continuous view towards the sea.

“The Owner is a repeat client and enthusiast customer of our shipyard, who shares our values. He actively took part in the realization of this new additional model asking for a bright design, gained with the union of smooth lines and stronger details, highlighting a sophisticated and classy mood. The last and more exclusive touch is a full-beam aft staircase which give to the guests a breath-taking sea sight from the inside. This is what you feel when you are on board: just being one with the outside.”

The levels of luxury that will greet guests onboard are sublime. Up to 11 guests can be accommodated in a layout which includes a master stateroom on the main deck with floor-to-ceiling windows for panoramic views of the sea. All cabins are equipped with their own entertainment systems, and the beds are strategically placed to offer the best views of the surrounding scenery.  

Maiora 35 Exuma also benefits from an innovative platform that guarantees second-to-none performance for a vessel of her class. She reaches top speeds of 35 knots with no vibrations to ensure total comforts and excitement, while she has an impressive range of 1,600nm. For guests seeking a dash of adrenaline during their time at sea, the Owner has an array of toys onbstored in the garage, including a 22ft long tender.

As the first Maiora 35 Exuma is released onto the seas this summer, we are excited to see her in action as she explores the world for the first time. Gruppo Fipa has once again displayed its credentials as a builder of highly innovative superyachts which fuse both comfort and performance to deliver the perfect yacht for thrilling adventures at sea.
