Maiora have just launched the latest Maiora 29, named Efficient Propulsion, at their Viareggio shipyard. The Maiora 29 is an elegant yacht, with sporty yet simple and refined lines. Designed to maximize interior volume, she offers a large owner's cabin midships, a double VIP in the bow, and twin guest staterooms.
Efficient Propulsion features a radically innovative propulsion system, to which she owes her name. She is powered by two pods, which provide an increased boat speed, drastically reducing fuel consumption. Both pods feature two contra-rotating propellers, which reduces fuel consumption in the order of 30%.
