First look: inside Maiora’s new 36m Harmony

Written by Charl van Rooy

Launched in July as the Fipa Group’s first completed unit in its newly designed ‘NEWSERIES’ of motor yachts, the 36-metre Harmony leads the way for the Italian brand that will see a range of yacht measuring between 26 and 46 metre in length be unveiled.

The yacht’s design is the collaboration between Maiora’s in-house Style Centre and Turin-based studio Quartostile. The studio’s background in the automotive sector is a clear inspiration behind Harmony's sporty and ‘wind-shaped’ lines. Her generous beam of 8.2 metres is well hidden by the sleek and elegant profile while underway, but will certainly stand out when moored in port alongside yachts of a similar length.

The impressive width provided plenty of room inside for the design team to experiment with different colours and textures throughout the yacht. The master suite is a fine example of this and is also by far the brightest of all the guest accommodations on board with its full-height opening balcony of 5 square metres that offers an uninterrupted view from the comfort of the bed.

A grand central staircase leads one below deck to the guest accommodation level where the multicoloured scene continues. Down here are two VIP staterooms forward and another two double cabins aft, adjacent to the full-beam tender garage.

Out on deck, it is on the sundeck where the outdoor magic happens. Here guests are treated to several lounging areas and social zones to relax the day away.

A covered area up forward can be used for informal family dining occasions with a large shaded lounge pad just to the side of it for guests trying to escape the direct sunlight.

The aft area of this deck a sunlight lounge with movable deck furniture provides the perfect wake-up spot in the morning and an intimate pool with a glass side brings a welcome relief when things get too hot.

The engine room, separating the beach club and full-beam tender garage, houses the two MTU 2000-series engines that push Harmony to a top speed of 30 knots. At a fast-cruising pace she will reach 750 nm, more than enough for easy trips in the Med. It is also here where the two Seakeeper gyro stabilisers are kept that keep the boat stable at displacement speeds or when at anchor.
