Elica Group introduces power catamaran brand Omaya Yachts

23 May 2024 • by Gabrielle Lazaridis

The Bulgarian family-owned Elica Group has announced the launch of Omaya Yachts, a new brand of power catamarans to be built at Elica Yard, on the banks of the Danube river. 

Omaya's first model, the OMAYA 50, is set to launch this summer with larger models already in the pipeline. "Initially starting with the OMAYA 50, the next design will be 62 feet (18.9 metres) and eventually moving into the superyacht sector with the OMAYA 80," said Kaloyan Radulov, co-founder and CEO of Omaya Yachts and Elica Yard.

Elica Group has operated within the manufacturing sector for the past 30 years, with a new round of corporate investment going towards enhancing its existing 15,000-square-metre facilities and modernising its operations.

"Being on the water has always been a passion of our family and runs deep in our DNA," said Radulov. "It was a natural progression for Elica Group to develop a range of serial-production yachts with the aim of building the very best power catamarans. We’re confident the OMAYA 50 will turn heads and are excited to introduce her to the world.”

According to Elica Group, the 15.2-metre OMAYA 50 will come in two configurations for the lower deck, which provides a maximum beam of 8.4 metres. One of the designs – the owner's version – offers a large master cabin covering the port side with a large en suite, while two double guest cabins and an additional crew cabin sit on the starboard side.
