Sardinia-based boat builder Maori Yacht has launched the new Maori 54ft yacht, that was created to meet the various demands required of a versatile tender. The boat’s in-house design is a distillation of the expertise the yard has accrued to date.
Maori 54ft luxury tender is fitted out to act as a comfortable and fast day cruiser. It features the open transom and aft sun-pad, the dinette protected by the hardtop, the open helm, the ample social area in the bow. Forward of the helm station and sunk into the deck, this open day vessel boasts a social area that cleverly allows for more intimate division of the parties onboard during the day. Just like cabriolet cars, Maori 54ft features a convertible top that ingeniously converts the area into a versatile space. If protection is required during rough or longer transfer passages, the guests are well protected in an enclosed salon.
If overnight accommodation is required for an adventurous weekend exploring remote beaches without primary yacht, then the banquettes convert into berths and the salon becomes a cabin. With the lateral glazing of the space matched by glass inserts in the hull, guests within the salon/cabin/open social space, maintain a sense of contact with the ocean too. The inclusion of a head and galley area, and the low transom provides easy access to the ocean for watersports activities and diving.
As for the power, potential owners have the option to choose from either a pair of FPT2 650-horsepower engines, or much more hefty MAN 2 X 800-horsepower engines.
