Maiora 36 yacht Harmony delivered by Fipa Group
by Chris Jefferies
Built from a Kevlar-reinforced GRP hull and superstructure to RINA standards at the yard's Massa facility, she features a raised pilothouse design by Quartostile in collaboration with Fipa Group. The yard adds that a tri-deck Royale version will also be made available on future hulls.
Accommodation on board Harmony is for ten guests in five en-suite cabins. The main deck master stateroom features a private study, walk-in wardrobe and fold-out superyacht terrace, while the four further guest cabins on the lower deck are arranged as two convertible twins and two doubles.
Harmony has an 8.2 metre beam, which is notably broad for her length, ensuring an impressive interior volume, which is most noticeable in the main deck saloon, where all ten guests can share a meal in the formal dining room. As the images below show, the glass inserts in the bulwarks do a great job of letting natural light into this area.
Moving upstairs and the superyacht sundeck features an aft Jacuzzi, cocktail bar, plentiful seating for al fresco dining and a convertible hardtop.
Power comes from a pair of 2,600hp MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines, which propel her deep-V hull to a top speed in excess of 30 knots. When trimmed back to her cruising speed of 12 knots, Harmony boasts a maximum range of 1,100 nautical miles, thanks to a total fuel capacity of 20,000 litres, while a Seakeeper 35 stabilisation system ensures a smooth cruising experience.
Her entirely separate crew quarters are situated in the bow and allow for a staff of up to five people split across three en-suite cabins. Tender storage is provided via a side-loading garage which can house both a RIB tender and a Jet Ski.
Harmony is the latest addition to the Italian yard’s range, which currently stretches from 24 to 42 metres. Recent launches include the 32.1 metre Maiora 33FB which splashed down in Viareggio in June 2016.
