The Italian yard Maiora has unveiled its latest model under construction: the 30.5-metre Maiora 30 Walk-Around yacht. With delivery expected in Summer 2019, she will make her debut appearance at Cannes Yachting Festival, followed by the Monaco Yacht Show. Featuring naval architecture and exterior designs by Maiora, the Italian shipyard collaborated closely with Centro Stile Maiora and the Quartostile design studio to develop a model that maintains the stylistic lines unique to Maiora motor yachts.

Following the Maiora 36, the first yacht to be completed as part of the NewSeries which launched in 2018, Maiora 30’s internal volume and external space have been maximised to make her dimensions comparable to those of a 35-metre yacht.
Designed by the Turin-based studio Fossati Design Bureau, the Maiora 30 Walk-Around showcases interior designs that perfectly reflect the owner’s desire for a bright and sober ambience with a touch of warmth and hospitality. The materials combine white brushed oak for the main covering with leather doors and ceilings, harmonised by matt brass inserts.

The main deck provides space to comfortably seat up to 10 guests in the dining area, although guests can also choose to lounge in the airy saloon, large sofa area or chaise longue.

The master suite, situated on the main deck, has been strategically designed to allow the owner to enjoy the spectacular view from the comfort of their bed and contains a vanity which can alternatively be converted into a desk, and an en-suite bathroom with twin sinks.

Two further guest cabins, also equipped with en-suite bathrooms and wardrobes, can also transform the area into a four-cabin layout, with two VIP cabins and two guest cabins.
Up to five crew members can be accommodated on board the Maiora 30 Walk-Around. To provide guests with utmost privacy, the crew can access the galley from a separate entrance which also leads to the lower deck.Photo: Maiora
The Maiora 30 Walk-Around provides abundant space for guests to relax on the optimised ‘walk-around’ flybridge which is completely open to the bow and accessible without doors or steps, thus seamlessly blending the aft area of the flybridge with the bow. The sun deck comprises a sunbathing area and dining space as well as a custom-built hot tub at the stern of the yacht alongside a bar and a dining table for up to 10 people.Photo: Maiora
In addition, a garage is located aft and is capable of housing a 4.20-metre tender. To guarantee easy access on board to all guests using wheelchairs or strollers, the ‘easy access’ solution provides an entrance through the saloon where the owner’s cabin can also be reached.
Equipped with double diesel-fuelled Caterpillar C32 Acert engines, the Maiora 30 Walk-Around reaches a maximum speed of 25 knots and cruises at 22 knots with a range of 1,150 nautical miles at 10 knots. Thanks to her efficient hull and dynamic stabilisation system - two active stabilising fins which comprise an electric actuation and ‘zero speed’ function - maximum onboard comfort is guaranteed when cruising or at anchor.
