the maori ’54’ ft yacht is designed to meet every need required for navigating across the sea in style, according to chief architect marco campa. celebrating ten years of shipyard activity, maori’s ’54’ yacht showcases the sardinia-based company’s daring design, craftsmanship, and modern-day refinements.

designed to expose the sun on the entire surface, the maori ’54’ ft yacht’s deck is a versatile and open social area for twelve people to sunbathe.  the deckhouse features a convertible top, quite similar to that of a car, which opens creating relationships with the exterior from all directions. 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 can convert into two beds and the salon becomes a cabin. looking through glass inserts in the hull, guests within the salon / cabin / open social space maintain a true sense of contact with the ocean. guest comfort and convenience on the 54 is enhanced by the inclusion of a head and galley area, and the low transom provides easy access to the ocean for watersports activities and diving. from the open transom and aft sun-pad, through to the dinette protected by the hardtop, to the open helm and into the social area located in the bow, the maori ’54’ is the quintessential open day boat.
