Fipa Maiora 27

The range of the Maiora boatyard, which belongs to the Fipa Italiana Yachts group, will soon be expanded with the debut on the market of the Maiora 27 model. Here we have a motor-yacht made entirely of fibreglass with two decks plus a flying bridge and characterised by a design that recalls the style elements already seen on other models by this valued Italian yard. Inside layout includes a sleeping area on the lower deck with the owner's full beam suite located amidships, where we have a centrally placed double bed, a corner for relaxing, an office corner, dressing room and private bathroom. Aft of this suite there are two guest cabins, one with queen size bed to starboard and one with twin beds to port, as well as a full beam VIP suite. Each guest cabin has its own en suite bathroom. In the far stern there is a cabin with two bunk beds and bathroom for the crew, with manhole access from the main deck. The layout of the latter offers a saloon furnished with a C-shaped sofa, table and another sofa, dining area for eight people, separate large galley and modern command bridge complete with all the necessary instrumentation for long cruises. Outside the main deck offers a dining area in the cockpit from which two elegant stairways on either side of the transom lead to the spacious bridge. The bow area of the deckhouse has a cushioned sundeck covering access to the tender storage area located athwartships. A davit is provided for manoeuvring the tender. The flying bridge is where we find the outside command station, with all the steering and instrumentation controls. In the centre of this deck there is a zone for relaxation, while astern there is a roomy sundeck. Standard engines are a couple of 2,000 HP MTU 16V 2000 M91, which according to the yard manage to move the Maiora 27 at a maximum speed of 28 knots.
