New Model: Fipa Maiora 36 FB

The coming years will be interesting times at Fipa Maiora as the company and its famous line of motor and super yachts enters a new era with exterior styling design duties now taken care by Quartostile from Turin.  Quartostile will face an interesting challenge taking duty from the long standing Roberto del Re who gave the Viareggio builder an important timeless identity from the eighties onward, and created with the 20 model launched in early nineties an irresistible contemporary design which lasted production and success for over twenty years.  Maiora and Quartostile will revamp the whole line and currently the Viareggio builder has also commissioned projects for a currently in build 26, 30, 42 and 46 meter models.  Interesting to note that Maiora new models over thirty meters will be available with the Royale triple deck version.  Also following Maiora history I think its possible to see more flexibility to these as the FB full-body variant and also more sleek non raised house pilot house versions for the smaller units.  As all Maioras the new 36 FB hull one is custom build to order and the Viareggio builder declares it to be one of the most spacious yachts in its size.  Internal layout is for five guest cabins with the owners stateroom located on the full body forward part of the main deck.  Crew accommodation is for five berths in three cabins. Maiora 36 FB is powered by twin MTU 2600hp which reaches a top speed of 30 knots and can cruise at 26 knots.  Long range capability is for 1100 nautical miles at a twelve knots speed.
