New Model: Fipa Maiora 29 Convertible

With her black hull and white superstructure, this is the new Maiora 29 Convertible.  This new Fipa Maiora presents a new perspective on the 29 model series, and also shows the great length of customization from the Italian Viareggio boat builder.  The Maiora 29 Convertible innovation is located in the enclosed flybridge, which takes half of the fly deck leaving the rest open.  The enclosed bridge is alco connected to the open area thanks to a sliding patio door.  As is usual to Maiora a high degree of customization is also show in all area of this latest 29 Convertible from the interiors of this yacht finished in canaletto walnut and white lacquered oak, to the chosen different layout: which shows it from the saloon which is furnished with spacious sofas and a concealed TV, there is the access to the master cabin which is made independent with its own private entrance. A day head is located at the saloon entrance, with access from both the inside and outside which further differentiates the Maiora Convertible from other similar 29 models launched in the past. Furthermore, the main deck also features a galley, the bridge and stairs giving access to guest accommodation. This area boasts two double VIP cabins and one twin cabin with sliding beds which enables single beds to be transformed into a double.  The Convertible enclosed fly is furnished with comfortable sofas and this same lounge zone can be transformed into a spacious dining area. In front there is a piece of furniture housing a concealed TV and a cooking plan. The upper helm is also very comfortable and spacious. A sliding door separates the inside and outside areas and it faces a huge sunbathing area from which one can access an "infinity pool" with a glass backside which gives the impression to swim while suspended in space. Two diving boards deploy to the sides and allow the water games to extend from the pool directly to the sea. The cockpit, which rightly deserves its "party cockpit" designation, has been enlarged to the maximum to obtain an enormous space capable of accommodating twelve guests around the table, in addition to the sofa and lounge chair area which is also there for guests' entertainment. On the other side, another lounge area featuring sofas and a table has been installed on the foredeck. Finally, a comfortable five meter tender is housed in the stern garage.
